PRIMARY MAIN & BOOSTER FANS
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.
The primary ventilation system ensures adequate airflow in mines by providing suitable paths for air to flow down the mine and out. Primary or main mine ventilation fans are also known as surface fans because they can also be installed at the surface of the mine (or entrance) or deep below ground level.
ENGINEERED TO SAFELY INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY, EFFICIENCY, AND PROFIT.
Minetek’s underground ventilation has many benefits over standard solutions. Reduce power consumption costs by up to 56% with Minetek's ventilation technology. 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.

Good product with great service leads to a great outcome. My dealings with MINETEK WATER and their supply and service of evaporator fans was one of high quality. I installed 10 evaporator fans on climate control to maximise efficiency and the results were incredible. From the first meeting through to commissioning nothing was a problem for the MINETEK WATER team. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with water disposal issues.
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.
We found the MINETEK WATER team listened and supported our situation with helpful guidance and advice to layout the evaporator pipework maximising their efficiency. I would highly recommend the units to others needing a cost effective solution to excess water.”
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.
I can honestly say I have found MINTEK WATER a very professional organisation in all the dealings that I have had with them. They have always been proactive and looked for and suggested alternatives to assist me in the delivery of my projects whilst still working on the original concept.
