Atlas Copco introduced its underground ventilation system, SwedVent. This introduction follows the acquisition of the SwedVent product line and other underground products from GIA Industri AB in the first quarter of the year.
The ventilation system features high pressure fans delivering air along extensive lengths of tunneling, with a capacity of 106 to 7,063 cu. ft. (3 to 200 cu m) per second. SwedVent also includes flexible ducting and control systems.
For highly effective noise reduction, the fans are equipped with silencers that are manufactured with mineral wool as absorbing material and have a center core that also reduces the high frequency sound.
System design is an important part of the overall package, taking into account system pressure, total leakage, motor load, airflow and other safety considerations and energy consumption.
