MINE AIR CONTROL (MAC) SYSTEM
Minetek's mine air control (MAC) system seamlessly integrated with the operating layer of the mine to optimise airflow across the entire air circuit. With the ability to ramp airflow up and down based on scheduling and vehicle movements identified by using RFID trackers. Our mine ventilation control system enables seamless operation with the ability to control from above the mine's surface.
REDUCE DOWNTIME & ACHIEVE OPERATIONAL EFFICENCY
Linking directly to the Performance on Demand (POD) systems on the Minetek fan range, it automatically ramps the airflow up or down as required. Air quality control for mining is required on some mines as a condition of their development approval and/or environment protection licenses issued by the EPA. These conditions require mining operators to monitor, manage and report on air pollutant levels in and around their mines.
The computerised controller allows for the management of airflow, from low flow during low activity times, right through to more than double the duty point of a traditional vane axial fan. This capacity to control high-pressure ventilation from the surface gives the ability to quickly blast gases or dust out for faster and safer re-entry times.
The automated monitoring and adapting of ventilation creates an all-around safer environment, as there’s no chance of human error and underestimating the correct amount of airflow needed. Minetek’s smart system will save any site money, with a guaranteed return on investment.
Save on power, additional fan installs and delayed re-entry with Minetek’s Mine Air Control patented system. Talk to Minetek about air quality control for mining today.
MULTIPLE HEADING DEVELOPMENTS
Limit the amount of fans required throughout multiple heading developments with Minetek.
As with our other applications, the high output, steel impeller design gives over double the duty point of traditional fans of the same comparable size. Quiet, efficient, with smart technology and streamlined features.
Low fan profile, single duct runs and minimal installs needed throughout the project are all advantages of using Minetek solutions.

Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
It was completed with no incidents or injuries, with no delays, and ahead of schedule. The plan was for 10 shifts, and it was completed in 7 shifts.
MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
We are always looking at new innovations and technologies that will benefit both us and our clients. Minetek has been able to display that with the use of their modern ventilation technology, where we can look to see production increases through faster re-entry times and reduced capital costs in the total life of the development, delivering value to both us and Mincor.
MINETEK provide a quality, proven solutions and are established as leading sound attenuation specialists.
