After nearly two years of close cooperation including technical trials, laboratory tests and rigorous field trials, Segnut has been officially accepted by BHP for use in its WA Iron Ore operations. In 2017, the screen house at Mount Whaleback mine caught fire as a result of hotworks being used to remove a seized nut. In Segnut, BHP found a means of removing the need for hot works to remove seized fasteners, that requires no special tools, nor changes to the design of the chutes, wear liners or other equipment. By replacing common hex nuts on wear liners and hard skirts on conveyors, BHP aims to remove the risk of a hot works (spark–ignited) fire in areas of high fuel load, such a screen houses and car dumpers.
