Bat Booth
(Personnel De-dusting Booth System)

Mideco’s Bat Booth™ was created specifically for workplaces where dust is a hazard and is effective against even the smallest dust particles.

According to Cancer Council Australia it is estimated that 230 people develop lung cancer each year as a result of past exposure to silica dust at work. The silica dust released during working with materials like stone, rock, gravel and clay is 100 times smaller than a grain of sand and without appropriate dust controlling equipment the health of your staff is at risk.

Our Innovative Solution - Personnel de-dusting Bat Booth™ can remove up to 80% of dust in seconds. All it takes is a press of a button. Bat Booth™ uses compressed air to blow the dust off the contaminated clothing. The dust is then captured and contained in a highly effective filtering system.
 


The Bat Booth™ is equipped with HEPA filters which comply with the latest American NIOSH standard and are currently the most efficient filters commercially available. The process takes only 10 – 12 seconds and tests have shown a 50% improvement in dust removed from clothes over other methods. The competitive solutions where a single point air hose method is used usually provide only temporary relief from the dust.

 

Bat Booth™ comes fully assembled and requires minimum installation. It can be used frequently throughout the day without causing delay to your work processes.
