McArthur River Mine Cyclone Enclosure

Teleo Design designed a replacement floor for the cyclone enclosure to ensure containment of acid spills from faulty cyclones. The steel grating floor was replaced with a Bondek Concrete slab complete with kerbing to prevent spills to the floors below. The floor was fitted with drains to contain contents and deliver to a controlled drain point.

 

Teleo designed a blockwork wall to build a room 6m long by 5m wide around the cyclones. This is to contain fumes and noxious gases from entering the adjacent work areas. The ceiling was designed using FRP closed cell decking panels to contain gases. A scrubber was fitted to the new room to extract fumes for decontamination of the gases.
