SUSTAINING CIVIL PROJECTS
HELPING SAFELY DELIVER TUNNELING UNDERGROUND CIVIL PROJECTS ON TIME.
MINETEK has developed extensive experience in delivering air solutions in some of the world’s most challenging civil tunneling or tunnel ventilation and underground projects.
A constant in any major civil infrastructure project is the need to ensure all deliverables meet the required specification and are delivered on time and within budget. MINETEK has provided innovative fan solutions for a range of tunneling projects across the globe, ensuring air can be efficiently targeted across the site.
With MINETEK’s Performance On Demand (POD), operators have the ability to precisely manage pressure and power to optimise air flow circuits.
Our expert design, engineering, manufacturing and project management teams work seamlessly together to ensure each solution meets or exceeds specification and installed quickly and efficiently to support the challenging tunnel ventilation project deadlines.
Lightweight and modular in design, MINETEK’s direct drive tunnel ventilation solutions are ideal for a range of high pressure and flow settings and have been proven to deliver significant cost savings through reduced power consumption.
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.
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.
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.
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.
MINETEK’s low profile fan provides additional clearance between ventilation ducts and loaded vehicles, making them the ideal solution for tunnel ventilation. Improve safety, save power, and achieve maximum performance with MINETEK.
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.
