General Underground Products

We have very strong working relationships with our underground mining clients which means we are often the first people they call when they want a well-designed solution to a problem. We love a challenge so over time have developed a range of products that we can now offer to the market.

While these products may be the “orphans” amongst our Underground Mining Products range, they are still designed with industry leading knowledge of the environment they will be used in, and are built to the same Jet standard. Our range of innovations include

  • Our unique crib-wash basin which brings some comfort to the crib room, while at the same time reducing damage to the underground roadways by preventing water from being spilled onto them.
  • Our range of machine stands that have been specifically designed for use with drift runners and underground LHD’s, and are certified to Australian standards.
  • Our QDS attachment locks provide a secure and convenient method of securing QDS attachments.

Water Tank for QDS Bolting Basket

Our water tank and water pump system for QDS bolting baskets allows you the flexibility of installing roof bolts in parts of the mine where reticulated water is not available.  The system is designed to be retrofitted to existing QDS bolting baskets.  The control system integrates seamlessly - only a single valve needs to be operated to changeover from tank water mode to reticulated water mode.  Water supply starts instantly when drilling commences, and manual flush functionality is retained. The system includes a float assembly which stops drilling operations if the tank runs dry, and a relief valve to prevent over-pressure events if a drill steel blocks. The system has been proven in service, typically achieving between 8 and 15 roof bolts installed per tank of water, depending on the prevailing strata conditions.

Crib-Wash Basin

Our unique crib-wash basins are designed to bring a bit of comfort to the crib room, while at the same time water damage to underground roadways.  A single handle turns on the water and also the discharge pump.  The waste water can be pumped into a pipe range, into a sump, or onto a conveyor belt.  Features include
  • Fork pockets for ease of transport
  • Tough steel frame that is built to withstand the underground environment
  • Stainless steel sink and cabinet for corrosion resistance
We have units available for sale and hire.

Our trickle dusters are well thought out and built to our characteristic high standards.  Features include reed valves to prevent over and under pressurising of the drum.  Perfect for stonedusting belt roads and returns. We also manufacture stonedust spears for use with bulk stonedust bags.

QDS Attachment Locks

The benefits of QDS attachment locks are many.
  1. They prevent new attachments from being used before introduction to site is completed
  2. The prevent out of service attachments from being used while they are waiting for repairs
  3. They prevent "inter-departmental" disputes over attachments by identifying and segregating longwall attachments from development attachments (for example)
  4. They prevent mixing of colliery owned and contractor owned attachments
  5. They improve efficiency of projects and down days: attachments can be staged with certainty that they will be there when they are required
Our heavy duty, anti-tamper QDS attachment locks are strong, secure and highly visible.  Features include:
  • One piece design, preventing loss of parts
  • Bolt cutter proof
  • Powder coated for corrosion resistance
  • Available in a range of colours for identification purposes

Our stands are designed an manufactured to Australian standards, and are supplied complete with certification by an RPEQ Mechanical Engineer.
