Tecpro Australia will feature the complete range of Sime water cannons in their stand at the upcoming AIMEX Exhibition in September. Tecpro also plans to have a Sime representation on hand to explain the features to visitors and answer queries.
The Italian-designed and manufactured Sime water cannons are used extensively and effectively worldwide for dust suppression in the mining and construction industries. With their gear-driven smooth rotation, the dust suppression equipment does not cause vibration damage to supporting infrastructure.
Graeme Cooper, Managing Director of Tecpro Australia explains that Sime water cannons have an adjustable jet-breaker that generates a light and uniform distribution of moisture over the targeted area. It is also simple to change the sprinkler’s operation from a part circle to full circle.
The Sime water cannons range consists of the Standard Skipper, High Pressure Mining Skipper and High Pressure Mining SP2 models that are best suited to dust suppression in mining environments.
These water cannons have a standard elevation angle of 25 degrees, but can be supplied with 'flip' nozzles, which give 22- or 28-degree elevations for wetting of stockpile to prevent dust being carried away with the prevailing winds.
Sime Mariner water cannons, also used for dust suppression in mining environments are available in short-barrel, long-barrel and variable angle models.
Key advantages of the Sime range of water cannons include reliability, water efficiency and cost-effectiveness in suppressing dust in a variety of mining and construction environments.
Tecpro distributes spray nozzles, tank cleaning equipment, ergonomic guns, stainless steel hose reels, water jet cutting supplies, fogging nozzles and fog makers for dust suppression and evaporative cooling applications.
