Discover the future of mining safety as Wormald unveils its latest innovations at AIMEX 2023

The clock is ticking down to the much-anticipated return of the Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) on 5-7 September 2023 , at the Sydney Showground.  After a hiatus of four years, Australia’s longest-running mining exhibition is back to serve as a celebration of innovation and collaboration for the mining industry.

Wormald is thrilled to announce that we’ll be part of this extraordinary event, showcasing our cutting-edge fire safety technologies specifically tailored for the mining sector. We invite you to visit us at stand C150 to discover solutions that can make your operations safer, more efficient, and compliant with safety standards.

What to expect at stand C150

From immersive VR training to eco-friendly firefighting solutions, here’s what you can experience firsthand at our stand C150:

  • VR Training

Safety training is vital in any high-risk industry, but traditional methods can often fall short. Our Wormald VR fire extinguisher training offers a uniquely immersive and realistic experience. Powered by FLAIM™, this training can place your employees in a simulated hazardous environment without exposing them to real dangers, offering benefits such as greater learner engagement and memory retention.

  • Rotarex CLS system

Our Rotarex FireDETEC Compact Line Suppression (CLS) system recently received AS 5062 approval, making it a leading choice for vehicle fire safety in Australia. Designed to be agile and compact, this system is an ideal fire suppression solution for a range of mobile and portable equipment—be it buses, light vehicles, or generators. One of the standout features of the Rotarex CLS system is its continuous pressurised detection tube, which not only reliably detects fires but also automatically triggers the release of extinguishing agents. This immediate action safeguards valuable assets and provides an extra layer of security by providing safe evacuation of operators and passengers.

  • Fluorine-Free Foam

In an effort to contribute to a greener and safer planet, Wormald has pioneered the development of Fluorine-Free Foam designed specifically for mining vehicles. Recognising the urgent need to phase out environmentally detrimental Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) commonly found in firefighting foams, our new formula offers a groundbreaking alternative that aligns with recent state regulations and global environmental standards.

  • TFT CrewProtect Decontamination System

CrewProtect is a self-contained and comprehensive air decontamination and filtration system for enclosed cabs that protects firefighting crew and extended first responders from air contamination and airborne threats. The CrewProtect solution, distributed by GAAM, will be on display at stand C150.
