VISION. INNOVATION. RESULTS.

MINETEK’s robust designed single speed fans, with blades virtually impervious to wear, have been proven to reduce power consumption costs by up to 50% and improve mining ventilation system.

FLEXIBILITY. TECHNOLOGY. AGILITY.

Compared to traditional larger fans, MINETEK’s compact units have the capability to outperform larger alternatives and then be re-deployed quickly and easily to other locations as the mine workings evolve.

1.1 MEGAWATT FAN INSTALLED IN JUST 4 DAYS.

MINETEK were commissioned to develop a primary and booster fan of a size and technology not seen before in Australia, and install them in record time.

We have utilised MINETEK for a number of sound attenuation projects in the Hunter Valley and have formed an excellent relationship with Glencore over many years. MINETEK understand our industry and always provide a solid and professional commitment to meeting our goals and objectives."

Glencore International AG Global HME Category Manager

The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.

Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!”

Klondex Mines Process Maintenance Planning Manager

MINETEK understand our business, and our requirements, and always display a solid commitment to meeting our goals. We enjoy an open and honest business relationship, and we consider ours to be a lifelong partnership.

Liebherr Australia Mining Manager

I have used these evaporators very successfully at mine sites where I have worked in the past. They are an extremely reliable unit and worked above expectations in the environment where we had them set up. As for spray drift/mist this can be controlled by the weather monitoring systems that are available with the units. Additionally, how you set them up and the amount of fall you can achieve allows for more moisture to be stripped from the droplets]will greatly benefit your overall evaporation rates.
