Ventilation represents an important cost in the operation of an underground mine. Significant energy savings can be realized using optimum air distribution for personnel and equipment. In 1987, Xstrata (Noranda) started developing AutoVENT to simulate and optimize the distribution of airflow in underground mines. Since then, Flairbase has kept developing the product.
AutoVENT operates within the powerful graphics environment of AutoCAD. The entire mine ventilation network is modeled using true mine coordinates to provide realistic results you can rely on to optimize underground airflow. Easily build your realistic ventilation network from scratch or speed-up the process using existing AMINE drawings.

AutoVENT is composed of two modules: SimVENT airflow simulator and SurVENT ventilation survey database.

Directly enter into AutoVENT operational fan curves along with electricity cost to obtain annual energy consumption.

Use the simulator to model at will changes to underground passageways. Incorporate into the network, ventilation control structures such as doors and regulators to obtain realistic results to optimize air distribution for personnel and equipment.

The SurVent module allows tracking of periodic ventilation measurements such as gas concentrations, flow rates and dust readings directly on mine plans. Greatly simplify underground ventilation surveys using a field Pocket-PC.
