Minetek High-Output Axial Fan System

Tuesday, 05 March, 2019 | Supplied by: Minetek



The Minetek secondary mine ventilation system features underground fans that are designed to optimise airflow and eliminate much of the power traditionally wasted in such applications.

Using a patented Mine Air Control (MAC) system to maximise return from its Performance on Demand (POD) units, the system automatically senses how much air is needed in any one heading at any time. The system works on high-pressure, steel-fabricated impeller technology allowing operation at temperatures and conditions previously thought impractical for an axial fan.

Key to its high cost-efficiency is the POD system, an electronic controller that allows the fan to be regulated from low flow requirements right through to more than double the duty point of a traditional vane axial fan. With the use of the MAC System RFID trackers, it constantly remains aware what items of underground mining equipment are moving into the heading, so the POD controller will automatically adjust the air volumetric flow required to provide sufficient air volume to disperse the gases and ventilate the area.

The modular system is engineered and manufactured in Australia specific for the end user.
