Ventilation and Air Quality Products
Underground mine ventilation provides a flow of air to the underground workings of a mine of sufficient volume to dilute and remove dust and noxious gases (typically NOx, SO2, methane, CO2 and CO) and to regulate temperature. There are various sources of gases including equipment, blasting activities and even the orebody itself. One of the largest components of the operating cost for mine ventilation is electricity to power the ventilation fans, which may account for one third of a typical underground mine’s entire electrical power cost.
Nordic Geo Support provides ventilation ducting, vent curtains, brattices and rigid duct seals as well as fast mounting Reusable Services Hangers for faster, secure services mobilisation.
Products to improve mine working conditions
Spraying systems form an integral part of mines and their function is to reduce airborne dust levels across the mines operations. Studies show that the use of air-and-water spraying systems can reduce dust concentration by up to 80% and they contribute to a significant reduction of dust concentration in the air.
Nordic Geo Support supplies a range of water atomisers as well as safety equipment, refuge chambers and escape route directional cones.
De- watering, or the removal of water, is a common application for mines, tunnels a construction site. Depending on the site, sources of water can come from rain or ground water ingress, or from services such as water atomisers. Pumps need to be robust, easy to use and maintain with the ability to work in various conditions. The pneumatically operated Winzemaster XL2 Double Diaphragm Pump meets the toughest of demands.
