Environmental Air Quality Stations for Deep Mining

Posted by on Jul 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Proponent: Maestro Mine Ventilation Partners:  Status: Complete OBJECTIVE: To manufacturer gas sensors that can be calibrated on surface with zero and span reference gases and then brought to depth without the requirement to re-calibrate at depth. CHALLENGES: Past use of sensors in underground mines has been unreliable due to the difficulty maintaining and calibrating the sensors.  As a result, many mines give up or ignore the sensors due to lack of confidence in the readings. Both electrochemical and infra-red sensors are used to measure gas...
