Another Fire Caused by Hot Works Nut Removal – but there is a solution …

Hot works nut removal

WorkSafe Victoria recently posted a story highlighting the hazards presented by hot works used to remove seized nuts on a quarry site. While the recommendations in the article on the authority’s website are all useful, all are about risk mitigation rather than hazard elimination.

Had Segnut been used in the case quoted by Safe Work for this hot works nut removal, the fire simply would not have occurred, as hot works would have been completely eliminated from the task. As Summer approaches and the fire danger reaches its peak in so many mining and quarrying regions, eliminating risks and avoiding preventable fires makes common sense…

A link to the WorkSafe Victoria site is here : Fire caused by hot works nut removal at a quarry .

For more specific information on Segnut’s applications, and the prevention of fires due to hot works nut removal, please see these pages:  Ground Engaging Tools (GET), Wear Liner Change-out or Conveyer Maintenance.

One of the biggest copper producing mines in Africa has become the second of First Quantum Minerals’ operations to adopt Segnut.
FQM adopted Engentus’s innovative Segnut in late 2018 at its Kansanshi operations and was the first mining company to adopt Segnut into its day-to-day operations. Segnut is used in the Sentinel copper mine to retain the wear liners on chutes and other fixed plant elements. Segnut has reduced the removal time and minimised the need for high energy removal methods such as hot works and rattle guns. This uniquely allows for a highly productive and lower risk work environment.
