The increasing demand from Underground Mining for fluid cleanliness, filtering, storage and dispensing has lead Integrated Reliability Solutions to design a range of QDS Pods which are aimed at addressing this growing demand.

Our solutions have been developed as a result of observing some of the following existing issues with the current Underground Service System:

  1. Non Compliance with Australian Standards
  2. Difficulty of operation and maintenance
  3. Inadequate Fluid Cleanliness and Filtration
  4. Inadequate Tanks size & Overfill protection
  5. Use of cheaper unreliable equipment
  6. Not designed of Underground Climatic / Environmental Conditions
  7. Lack of Work Space
  8. Slow service times

IRS Designed and Manufactured Q.D.S Service Pod has addressed the follow issues:

  1. Complies with Australian Standard AS 1940
  2. Increased Fluid Cleanliness levels
  3. Appropriate Tank size and overfill protection
  4. Prevents Water/Moisture Ingression to storage systems
  5. Reduced service times
  6. Reduce operation and maintenance time
  7. Uses high quality well tested products
  8. Suitable for Underground conditions
  9. Increased work space and include work vice
