How ventilation systems will change with the introduction of battery electric vehicles in underground mining?
Zitrón talks to Daniel Gleeson (International Mining) about the varied and complex considerations for creating an underground mine ventilation system with the increased uptake of autonomous and battery-electric technologies (with the participation of Javier Fernandez Lopez, Managing Director at Zitrón Australia).
The fan blade and turning vane design is at the heart of the performance of an axial fan
Fan blade machining is an exciting new area that Zitron has entered into, once again proving its willingness and eagerness to invest in the latest technologies, manufacturing techniques and R&D to stay at the forefront of Fan design. This will not replace cast blades in the majority of the fans supplied, but only add to the existing technological advances made and used by Zitron (with the collaboration of Louis van Wyk, Managing Director at Zitrón Canada).
