PBE’s Responsible Ventilation Management System Can Save Money in Electricity

Electricity is generally the single largest cost to an underground mine with the auxiliary ventilation system usually being a mine’s single greatest user of electricity (30% - 50%). Using PBE’s Responsible Ventilation management system, fans can be controlled by personnel tracking and environmental monitoring, in addition to scheduled events and manual controls. The cost of these safety systems can be paid for by the saving in electricity, hence potentially no capital outlay. Additionally, the system reduces the carbon foot print which has an environmental as well as a social impact.
