Here’s the Key to a DUST FREE RV!
While visiting Australia in 2021, we were looking for a solution for keeping dust out of our mechanics truck while travelling in the Yukon, Canada, and we came across the Carafan Saraha CP700. We were so excited at finding a solution to our Dust problem. We did some research and found that there was nothing like this in Canada, so we ordered one straight away.
Jonathan has lived and worked as a Heavy Duty Mechanic in the Yukon mining areas for over 40 years, and he understands the problems with dust. We knew that if we had a travelling dust problem, then many of our fellow travellers would also, and asked the team at Lyons Airconditioning if we could become the distributors in Canada and the USA
Together, using Jonathan’s mechanical experience with the technology and Diane’s 30 years’ experience in finance and business development, we have formed the perfect team to distribute the Carafan Sahara CP700 across Canada and the USA.
the ManufacturersStarting out as a small family business, Lyons Airconditioning established itself quickly as the leading auto-electrical company dedicated to air conditioning, particularly for the mining industry.
It was in supporting the mining industry where Lyons Airconditioning started to understand the issues dust causes in the performance of air-conditioning, and how a solution was needed to reduce the amount of dust that was entering the cabin. Dust in mining is a major issue, and a way to overcome this was to use pressurization to reduce the amount of dust entering these large machine cabins. Being involved heavily with major earth moving companies, Lyons installed positive pressure systems into the air conditioning systems with the simple premise – if the cabin has a higher pressure than the outside, this would stop dust ingress from occurring. Lyons Airconditioning have since become one of Australia’s leading industry experts in cabin filtration and pressurization for the mining industry.
In 2018, one of these mining companies came to Lyons Airconditioning to create a solution for their remote caravan. The mining company’s geologists complained about the amount of dust entering their caravan while they were working in the red dusty area of the Pilbara in Western Australia. Due to the remote nature of the work being carried out, a standard pressurizer could not be fitted due to the possibility of it being knocked off in this rugged bushland, so the Lyons Airconditioning engineering team worked on a low profile, light weight unit which could pressurize the 24-foot caravan. This is how the Carafan Sahara was created.
