Big things have been happening at Grydale and today marks a proud day for our team, who have designed and manufactured the first 60m3/s mobile dust collector in the world.

The first of eight JMS 60 M-Series Dust Collectors, currently in production, ‘Britney’, is heading to Melbourne, where she will provide ventilation at the tunnel face. Skid mounted, the unit will sit on a gantry within a station box on the surface, to initially provide early works ventilation and will stay with the programme for subsequent works until project completion.

Part of the JMS M-Series of mobile dust collectors, the unit features existing patented technology, along with additional design features such as the ‘AirFoil Wedge’. This decreases air velocity variation for lower flow resistance and increases the stability of air flow.

In November 2018 the sister JMS 60 M-Series unit, ‘Debbie’, will also be heading to Melbourne before a further two units, due for delivery before Christmas.
