The Kamoa-Kakula mine, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), recently started producing copper.The phased expansion puts Kamoa-Kakula on the path to establish as the second largest or even the largest copper mining operation in the world.

Given the value of their mining operation, it was very essential that they have various safety measures in place. Flow Systems, established in 1975, was able to supply them with quality access control equipment building on the teams’ expertise for designing and manufacturing machinery.

Automative Vehicle Access Control Barriers

Flow Systems’ Automatic Vehicle Access Control Barriers placed throughout the various sites on the mine was able to offer the desired level of security required. Managing the flow of vehicles in and out of the site is a necessity as this is a high-risk site. Monitoring the first point of access before vehicles are allowed onto the site is extremely essential.

Heavy Duty Full Height Industrial Turnstiles

One of the next points of access is Flow Systems’ Heavy Duty Full Height Industrial Single or Double Turnstiles. The company’s full height industrial turnstiles are designed for maximum impenetrability to automatically guide personnel in and out of secure areas. These turnstiles, specified for mines among other sites, offer the desired security and reliability to the mine.

The Alcolizer Breathalizers supplied with these turnstiles are perfect to monitor the staff or any visitor entering the site. It is crucial that blood alcohol levels are monitored to prevent accidents on site. Blood alcohol levels exceeding the limit can cause serious harm to the individual as well as other staff or visitors. Given the current situation with the pandemic, the Alcolizer’s unique sample collector eliminates blow-back and residue from positive blows which are expelled from the side outlets.
