Mobile Fleet Screen Testing

Mining Fleet Management

ADVANCED FLEET NOISE MONITORING Minetek has developed an approach to mobile fleet screen testing which optimises the process and guarantees maximum operability in the process. For most industrial operators, sound testing regimes are in place to ensure mobile fleets meet strict noise requirements. In mining, many sites are required to dynamically test mobile fleet noise monitoring up to three times a year.

This testing focuses on a range of parameters including measuring sound at full power on level ground but can also be modified to test while travelling uphill at full power or travelling downhill under retardation, simulating normal hauling characteristics.

Standard testing can cause significant disruption and unnecessary downtime, however, Minetek has developed an approach mitigates these risks. Our mobile fleet screen testing uses only strategically positioned ground microphones, enabling our team to be fast, mobile and flexible on site, pinpointing a wide range of testing locations. The result is a reduced impact on operations, all while meeting the required testing sensitivity and repeatability standards.

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.

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

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.
