ADVANCED AUTOMATION SYSTEM 

MINE AIR CONTROL (MAC) SYSTEM

REDUCE MINE AIR CONTROL RISK DOWNTIME WITH MINETEK

MINETEK’s Mine Air Control (MAC) system seamlessly links ongoing activity changes on site to the underground ventilation system.

Using RFID trackers, the MAC system tracks movement of vehicles in and out of the mine. Linking directly to the Performance on Demand (POD) systems on the MINETEK fan range, it automatically ramps the airflow up or down as required.

This computerised controller allows for management of air flow, from low flow during low activity times, right through to more than double the duty point of a traditional vane axial fan.

This ability 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-round 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 ROI.

Save on power, additional fan installs and delayed re-entry with MINETEK’s Mine Air Control patented system.
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.

COMMITTED TO QUALITY

ISO 9001:2015 is the world’s most recognisable business management standard and MINETEK are committed to meeting and maintaining world standards for quality, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. With an unwavering focus on quality. MINETEK is an ISO 9001 quality accredited company.

AIR CAPABILITIES

Primary Ventilation Fans

MINETEK can supply the largest available fans for main fan ventilation. Innovative engineering and premier quality have resulted in world first features like MINETEK’s Performance on Demand (POD) controls. Experience power saving, durability and flexibility not achieved with traditional fans.

Secondary/Auxilliary Fans

Keep additional fan installations and mid-project shutdowns to a minimum, with MINETEK’s auxilliary fans. Compact in size , while the high pressure capability results in less fans needed for the development. Benefit from automation, syncronisation and control from the surface.

Booster Fans

Strategically optimise underground air flow with MINETEK. Use primary booster fans for both return and intake airways and benefit from all the MINETEK advantages. MINETEK’s fans can sequence with the main ventilation. The anti-stall feature makes it a reliable choice for booster ventilation.

Multiple Heading Ventilation

Use one fan instead of many, by using MINETEK for multiple heading ventilation. Reduce operating costs, decrease requirements for installation, and get MAC controlled ventilation with MINETEK’s high output fans.

Bulkhead Fans

Synchronise bulkhead fans with MINETEK’s Performance On Demand (POD) and Mine Air Control (MAC) system. Halve the amount of fans required, and stop inefficient power wastage, stalling and duct friction with MINETEK.

Long Duct Runs

The concentrated power of MINETEK’s High Output (HO) Axial Fans, makes them the ideal solution for long duct runs. With more than twice the pressure capacity of a standard bladed axial fan, less fans are needed throughout the development.

Tunnel Fans

MINETEK’s low profile fan provides additional clearance between ventilation ducts and loaded vehicles, making them the ideal solution for tunnels. Improve safety, save power, and achieve maximum performance with MINETEK.

Development Fans

Utilise MINETEK’s Pressure, Power, Performance on Demand (POD) system throughout development and reap the economic benefits. Control from the surface, and only use the air pressure and power you need at each stage of the development. MINETEK’s fans will grow with your project.

Mine Air Control (MAC)

The Mine Air Control (MAC) system, in conjunction with the fans Performance on Demand (POD) technology enables synchronization of both the primary and secondary ventilation fans to increased performance, economic benefits, and efficient use of power. Control the ventilation system remotely for ideal performance from the surface.
