Fan plants for central ventilation of a mine are the most important element that ensures operation and safety of mine production. Long shutdown of the fan is utterly unacceptable because it may cause danger to life and health of the workers at the mine.
Reliable information on technical condition of the fans helps to reduce the probability of their sudden failure. It enables early planning of repair work and stand-by fan starting. Timeliness and reliability of the information helps personnel, which services the fans, to find a proper solution.
The COMPACS® system enables detection of fan plant malfunctions (bearing defects, imbalance, misalignment, unfastening) and violation of operating practices (aerodynamic defects that increase overall level of vibration loading on bearing supports).
Timely detection of developing defects enables to schedule preventive and repair work, which significantly increases level of equipment use. In addition the use of information on the fan condition enables reduction of the probability of a sudden failure and associated emergencies in the mine. Consequently fail-safety of the enterprise increases. All that leads to capitalization and increase of JSC "ALROSA" profitability.
