Protect the Mine AND the Environment
August 9, 2016by performaxGeneral
Mining is a dangerous industry. The hazardous work environment can be unpredictable. Ventilation in a mine is crucial, environmental containment is essential and security is vital. PerforMax Global has worked to create a safe and helpful product to address these concerns.
Mining ventilation is highly important to provide a flow of air to the miners and dilute and remove dangerous gases. There are two types of ventilation: flow-through ventilation and auxiliary ventilation. The flow through air is controlled by a series of fans and regulators while the auxiliary ventilation takes that air and distributes it to the mine. This is why ventilation doors are so useful. Ventilation doors are used in all types of underground mines from coal to uranium to titanium. The PerforMax MaxSpeed’s fast operating speeds reduces air infiltration and aids temperature control reducing energy costs. These doors are safe with a bottom bar ready to break with heavy traffic impact and can be installed in high traffic areas without compromising security or productivity. The springless operation reduces maintenance and repair costs ultimately eliminating safety concerns associated with springs. The safety of our product is a top priority. Performax Global’s MaxSpeed XL is suitable for areas which require larger passageways but maintains the same fast operating system reducing the ventilation flow, controlling the temperature and saving on energy costs.
Although our product is safe, there are many environmental impacts in the mining industry. Mining operations can create a negative environmental effect. These impacts can include contamination of soil, organic chemicals and ground water, formation of sinkholes, and acid mine drainage. There are two different types of mining: Aboveground mining and underground mining. Surface mining includes removing vegetation, dirt, or bedrock while underground mining consists of digging tunnels or shafts into the earth to reach deposits. In order to contain environmental contamination PerforMax Global has created a door versatile for all applications called the MaxFold. This door addresses both environmental and safety concerns. The PerforMax MaxFold is extremely energy efficient due to quick openings, optimal wind resistance, ability to accommodate large passageways, and has minimal maintenance cost. This is a simple design created with the safety and security of your employees in mind. The perimeter and internal structure have galvanized steel which will be more than sufficient in this type of environment. Additionally, the vinyl curtain is fitted with aluminum or galvanized tubes which helps with pneumatic pressure distribution. This creates a self-supporting and secure door structure in a dangerous and climate changing environment.
The mining industry provides obstacles. Therefore, PerforMax Global provides solutions. Our doors are applicable to any dangerous environment with minimal upkeep and high savings on energy costs.
