Ausnet Industries

Mining, Oil & Gas
  • Working in close co-operation with the mining, oil, gas, engineering and environmental industries, Ausnet Industries have developed innovative products and solutions designed to:

    • Protect lives
    • Protect damage to equipment
    • Protect wildlife
    • Provide recreation facilities
    • With safety being of the highest importance, our products are manufactured to confirm to Australian, British and EU standards.
    • Approved vendor status for many resource companies including BHP, Rio Tinto, HWE and Fortescue Metals.
  • Through previous work undertaken for BHP, Ausnet were approached to provide a solution for a unique problem. The conveyor systems employed by BHP are designed to carry thousands of tonnes of materials although from time to time, some components of these systems break down and can dislodge or are thrown from the belts resulting in the potential to cause damage to machinery or injury to personnel.

    Wire Safety Nets

    The weight and size of the materials caused further issues and meant that the design needed to be strong and flexible.

    Ausnet assessed the design and location of the conveyors and provide a solution to this problem. The end product was designed by Ausnet for BHP's conveyor trouble spots and featured a net that consisted of hand spliced 4mm galvanised cable which provided durability and provided a long lasting solution. Most importantly, the net featured a high burst strength of 2.7MT which ensured that all debris and materials would be contained.

    As the design was modular, the nets could be removed for repair, maintenance and inspection without affecting the whole area
