EXTENSIVE EQUIPMENT CAPABILITY

PRIMARY MAIN & BOOSTER FANS

ENGINEERED TO SAFELY INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY, EFFICIENCY, AND PROFIT.

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 syncronisation 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.

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.
