DID YOU KNOW…

  • Ventilation accounts for 40 to 50% of a mine’s total energy consumption.
  • Fan energy consumption can account for up to 50% of the mine’s electricity costs.
  • Use of Variable Frequency Drive technology can substantially decrease fan energy usage and operational costs.
  • Retrofitting of inefficient main fan assemblages will result in substantial fan operating cost savings.
  • A properly designed fan cone can save substantial fan operating costs.
  • By reducing air leakage by 10% one can reduce the system overall operating cost by 30%.
  • Proper duct installation can reduce auxiliary fan operating costs by 20% or more.
  • Application of Ventilation on Demand may result in reduced energy usage by 20 to 40%.
  • Vibration is the primary cause of fan / bearing failure. Proper fan alignment and balancing will greatly reduce maintenance costs.

AirFinders can perform a ventilation efficiency audit, and help you optimize your ventilation system, minimize energy usage and lower system operational costs. Please contact us if you would like to learn more.
