Product Description

Electricity is generally the single largest cost to an underground mine, with the auxiliary ventilation systems being a mine’s single largest consumer of electricity at 30 – 50%.

PBE’s Responsible Ventilation management system controls these fans so they are operational only when required. These conditions can be triggered by environmental events such as unsafe gas levels and temperature, vehicles or personnel entering the area (mine tracking) or through specified scheduling.The cost of PBE’s Responsible Ventilation system can be paid for by the saving in electricity, with potentially no capital outlay. Additionally, the system reduces the carbon footprint which has an environmental as well as a social impact.

The Responsible Ventilation package is a module within Vantage, PBE’s proprietary control and monitoring platform.

In addition to Responsible Ventilation, Vantage is used to monitor the complete suite of PBE’s safety and productivity solutions, including tagging and tracking, collision avoidance/proximity detection, environmental monitoring, communications infrastructure and 3rd party infrastructure.
