Fully refurbished and now featuring our latest technology and product improvements, the Grydale JMS-60-MES is the latest unit to join the Grydale Rental fleet of mobile dust collectors. The JMS-60-MES previously provided general ventilation and dust control on the Metro Tunnel project in Melbourne, Victoria and was purchased back from the project to be refurbished at our manufacturing facilities. The unit will shortly be leaving for South Australia where it will provide general ventilation during mine shut down works for BHP. The JMS-60-MES is the largest dust collector in our growing rental fleet and provides 60m3/s of airflow. [...]
The prestigious North American tunnelling event, Rapid Excavation and Tunneling Conference (RETC) occurs every two years and is a widely-recognized event dedicated to tunnelling innovation. The conference brings together industry heavy hitters – project owners, engineers, consultants, manufacturers, and service providers to collectively discuss challenges in the industry and learn from one another. As tunnels get larger, deeper, and excavated in more challenging conditions, expectations are continually increasing for tunnels that are completed quickly, safely, and sustainably. The 2021 event in Las Vegas did not disappoint, with over 100 exhibitors and 600 attendees. Grydale USA (Craig Allan, VP of [...]
Simplifying Compliance and Improving Worker Safety Within Construction Industries Silicosis is the most common occupational lung disease worldwide, and often referred to as the ‘modern day asbestos’. It’s estimated that up to 2 million construction workers in the United States have had exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS), with an estimated 840,000 of them working in environments that exceed the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). As dust control regulations and public interest in workplace safety increases, market demand for dust control solutions is on the rise. At both the federal and local level, regulations including those by the Occupational Health [...]

Another Grydale JMS-50-MHT and our first JMS-50-MDT enroute to Sydney to provide effective dust control on a major tunnelling infrastructure project. Grydale are committed to innovation and improvement and the JMS-50-MDT features a extensive range of proprietary features to make this unit a world class engineered product, manufactured in Brendale, QLD, Australia. Well done to all our team involved in the design and manufacture of these units. For more information on these units please contact us.
Last week we completed the design and manufacture of our first JMS-50-MDT - a complete dust collection system, powered by a Volvo Penta T4 Diesel Engine, mounted on a single mobile skid. The diesel engine powers a 200kW Centrifugal Exhaust Fan which creates 50m3/s @ -3.5kPa and has a filtration efficiency of 99.99% at 0.067 micron - to filter both dust and diesel particulates. The compact, integrated system operates on tracks and provides an effective way of extracting dust at source along with providing space saving advantages and enhanced flexibility and mobility. This first unit is part of our [...]
Custom built from 316 Stainless Steel - the JMS 16 F-Series dust collector is ready to be installed to extract dust created at a new fertiliser bagging line facility in NSW. The JMS 16 F-Series dust collector includes 16 x High Efficiency Filters, a 37kW Centrifugal Fan and a Variable Speed Drive that will be capable of pulling 18,000m3/hr of air @-2.5 kPa. The Allen Bradley PLC will be located in the main site control room and local plant air will be used for the reverse pulse filter cleaning system. Fertilizer production and bagging is a very corrosive process and [...]
Illustration shows Grydale JMS 32 F-Series Dust Collection System designed to provide a central dust collection system for laser cutting operations. Grydale fixed unit dust collectors offer a long term and cost-effective solution to dust and fume control. They are designed to handle high-volume dust loads and maintain compliance with workplace health and safety regulations for a wide range of industrial applications. As part of our consultation with potential clients our in-house engineering team provide a detailed design of our proposed dust collection system based on individual site requirements and specific dust types. Our dust collectors have a modular [...]
What is Abrasive Blasting? Abrasive Blasting is a common industrial process used to remove the surface coating from materials or structures to prepare them for final finishing such as painting, machining or assembly. The most common blasting method uses compressed air to propel abrasive material from a blast pot, through a blasting hose to a nozzle that is manually controlled by an operator. Why is dust control important when Abrasive Blasting is undertaken? Abrasive Blasting generates large volumes of respirable dust that can be toxic and small enough to be inhaled into lungs and thus can be hazardous to [...]
