Primary or major fan selection is critical to the success of underground mines, as correct ventilation is key for production and energy efficiency. Ventilation alone contributes 42-49% of a typical mine’s energy cost.MINETEK’s innovative engineering and premier quality fans have resulted in world first features that can deliver economic savings, durability and flexibility not achieved with traditional fans.MINETEK’s underground ventilation has many benefits over standard solutions. The flexible airflow using the Performance On Demand (POD) system can ramp up or down, accommodating changes in activity throughout the life of the mine.
Coupled with the Mine Air Control (MAC) system, MINETEK’s fans automatically track vehicles moving into the heading and adjust the airflow from the fan. The system is controllable from the surface and allows synchronisation of the entire ventilation system.MINETEK’s fans guarantee a Return on Investment (ROI). Experience power saving, durability and flexibility not achieved with traditional fans.
