minetek underground fan benefits

Primary Fan for Mines

Our High Output Axial Fan is engineered with the mining industry in mind. Its high-pressure steel fabricated impeller is at the forefront of technology and allows for operation at pressures previously thought impossible for an axial fan. Benefits include prolonged life in even the harshest environments.

The result of MINETEK’s focus on excellence is a series of products that seamlessly connect to the industry and solve economic, operational and safety problems through clever use of technology and design. MINETEK uses a unique patented design to ensure our industrial axial fans are robust enough for underground mining.

secondary underground fans

Our Mine Air Control (MAC) system seamlessly integrates with the operating layer of the mine to optimise air flow across the entire air circuit. With the ability to ramp air flow up or down based on scheduling and vehicle movements, MINETEK fans offer true performance on demand.

PERFORMANCE ON DEMAND (POD)

Our Performance On Demand (POD) innovation & technology allows operators to tailor pressure and power consumption – without the need for VSD control. The result is a seamless, responsive solution which optimises performance, reduces power consumption costs and increases overall operational efficiency.

Glencore International AG Global HME Category Manager

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.”

Osborne Gold Mine Superintendent Environment

Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!

Klondex Mines Process Maintenance Planning Manager

MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
