Mine Ventilation

Optimize your mine's safety, efficiency and lifespan through customized ventilation systems for controlling airflow, pressure, and climate while minimizing hazards
SRK recently merged Mine Ventilation Services into its US practice. 
The amalgamation aligns with both companies’ visions of expanding their reach and services within the mining and minerals industries. SRK’s new business unit provides engineering consulting services, MVS’s range of ventilation and climatic software, and comprehensive training programs for mining and ventilation engineers and technicians.


We Satisfy Your Ventilation Requirements Through:

  • Customized systems for existing or proposed subsurface facilities
  • Detailed engineering studies using our own proven software programs that model and optimize location and operation of fans, cooling plants, air heaters, main shafts, and airways
  • Accurate estimation of capital and operating costs

Our Specialist Teams Offer: 

  • Multidisciplinary ventilation expertise from mine ventilation engineers, mining engineers, research scientists, and computer software engineers
  • In-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of heat transfer and the fire, air cooling, and ventilation modeling required to establish safe and efficient underground ventilation systems
  • Innovative technologies and software programs developed in house

Mine Ventilation Engineering Services

  • Comprehensive ventilation surveys for all underground facility types
  • Ventilation system modeling, design, and review at conceptual, pre-feasibility and feasibility levels and during construction
  • Underground fire risk analysis and modeling to optimize mine design and escape planning
  • Ventilation and air conditioning software development
  • Monitoring system development
  • Operational auditing and optimization
  • Climatic studies to identify and mitigate potentially hazardous sub-surface conditions
  • Diesel particulate matter (DPM) sampling and laboratory analysis
  • Troubleshooting of problems related to heat, dust, gaseous contaminants, pressure differentials, etc.
