Today’s mines require comprehensive systems to monitor and control their ventilation processes with the flexibility to interface with any application and communication structure. Implementation of VOD (Ventilation On Demand) or any level of ventilation automation while relying on accurate and reliable field data is a crucial element of mining operations.

Our Mine Air Quality Stations (MAQS), equipped with industry leading Accutron ultrasonic airflow sensors, offer all the features necessary with multiple communication options to meet the demands of your mine. From surface fan monitoring to complete environmental monitoring underground,

MAQS are simple to deploy and are the most cost effective and reliable solution in the industry.

Monitor multiple variables with a single system.

The MAQS gives maximum flexibility, simultaneous monitoring in addition to a variety of control and communication options

Easy installation. Simple operation.

Accutron Instruments are shipped ready for use. Preconfigured with optional mounting plates and support brackets

Mine air quality and ventilation monitoring

World leading ultrasonic airflows monitors. Four real-time “time of flight” models for complete mine airflow monitoring: Drift, tunnel, raise, surface fan, industrial duct, booster fan

  • Monitor output and status of main ventilation fans
  • Monitor gas and airflow levels at critical points underground
  • Monitor temperature, heat stress and humidity levels and pressure events
  • Add on any RS485 remote device and communicate all data to surface

Real-time data allows you to optimize your ventilation system simulation 
models allowing you to increase profitability.
