Modular, robust & reliable underground ventilation proven to reduce power consumption by up to 50%.

Engineered specifically for the underground mining industry, Minetek's innovative and modular air management solutions have been helping industry leaders worldwide reduce power consumption and improve underground ventilation systems for more than 40 years.

With unique features such as Performance on Demand (POD), operators can tailor pressure, power and performance for a seamless and responsive system. Plus, the anti-stall technology cleverly controls the flow of air eliminating critical stalls, extending the operating range and enhancing the overall performance of the fan across the entire curve. 

Engineered to perfection:

  • Vast operating range.
  • Halve required power consumption. 
  • Single speed fan - regulated by the integrated POD system.
  • No Variable Speed Drive (VSD) controls.
  • Provide the correct amount of air when and where you need it.
  • Robust design utilizing blades impervious to wear.
  • No complex or expensive Ventilation on Demand (VOD) controls.
  • No fan stalls. 
  • Safe solution with no loss of air. 
  • Reduce capital costs with less fans required.

Case study: Agnew Mine

'The installation here and the running of the fans has been a great success and we've implemented it into our Granny Smith Mine as well.' 

- Adam Dardha, Electrical Coordinator - Gold Fields

Gold Field's Agnew Gold Mine was experiencing challenges with its previous primary ventilation circuit. Debottlenecking was required to achieve their goal of increased production and expanded exploration. Minetek was commissioned to develop a turnkey Primary Booster Fan solution including removal of the redundant equipment and installation of the new fans.
