MAO-22: The new standard in protection of cabin crew in composting facility
January 21, 2015
Working with waste and specially with bio waste has certain risks for the employees. Waste always contains bacteria and fungi. Most of them are harmless and are necessary for the composting process itself, but there is always the possibility that infectious material is delivered to a composting plant.
Staff exposed to these conditions every day need to be adequately protected to avoid the risk of permanent damage to their central nervous system and lungs, resulting in for example compost lungs. Contact between workers and the waste must therefore be minimized or if possible altogether eliminated.
BMAir Filter Pressurization Systems
BMAir filter pressurization systems ensure optimum filtering to levels well below the maximum permitted limits, so that only clean breathable air reaches the cabin. In combination with a large volume combifilter (for pollutants) in a separate compartment, the BMAir MAO-22 is ideal for environments with high concentrations of dust and fumes. Environments such as “in-vessel composting” facilities.
The BMAir MAO-22 system has a very robust and durable design, for roof mounting. The system features a patented self-cleaning pre-filter, which can be replaced easily and quickly, and therefore can be used in exceptionally dusty environment. Thanks to the automatic pressure control and filter recognition in the display the system is maintenance-free, outside the standard filter change.
Main features of the MAO-22 :
Ideal for exceptionally dusty environments (IVC facilities).
Thanks to self-cleaning pre-filter lower operating cost per hour.
System meets the requirements as stated in the AG7 (HSE composting).
Clean air is essential to humans, especially for those who work in highly polluted areas. A filter pressurization system is a solution for cabin crew. It supplies breathable air and monitors the quality of the air. This system is basically a piece of Personal Protection Equipment.
