- for underground mining engineers at the design and simulation stage.
- for specialists responsible for the state of the atmosphere in the mine.
Creating and Entering Ventilation System Parameters
A flow graph of the mine ventilation system is the source of data for the calculations, including:
- Digital model of underground workings
- Main and local ventilation fans
- Ventilation subsystems, air inlets/outlets, air dams, ventilation doors, thermal depression
Use the system to:
- Create a ventilation system in no time, with demonstrable deliverables and fewer parameters set for underground workings
- Enter the data you need for the calculations while constructing objects.
Creating a Ventilation System: Key Features
- Use the existing templates to create underground workings
- Create new user objects and legends or configure the existing ones
- Edit visualization parameters for workings quickly
- Add new properties and parameters for workings and other objects in line with the user’s requirements
- Manipulate objects in the graphic environment
Selecting Fan Modes
- Build a database for mail and local ventilation fans
- Utilize the graphic database with fan specifications
- Determine optimal parameters for fan systems, subject to minimum power consumption
K-MINE: Ventilation calculates air distribution and analyzes different ventilation system options and mine air pollutants.
Calculation of gas concentrations in an emergency
- Calculation of gas concentrations in underground workings in case of fire for the existing ventilation system
- Forecasting potential accident consequences
- Modeling the performance of various ventilation options in an emergency
Graphic Display Features of the Emergency Response Plan (ERP)
- Create legends in the graphic environment as required by the regulations
- Display the graphic information from ERP as per the reference number of a working
- Apply the ERP color scheme to the workings as per their reference numbers
- Configure, edit, and save numerous user-specific lists of the ERP color scheme for different options
1. Determine the shortest exit route to remove miners from a hazard area:
- from a specific working
- from all workings where miners are present during an emergency
2. Determine the travel time and distance in safe and gassy underground workings
3. Visualize exit routes for the personnel and rescuers
4. Adjust escape routes by including or
5. Excluding inaccessible workings
Frequently asked questions
What kind of licenses does K-MINE provide and how much are they?
K-MINE provides two types of licenses monthly or annual subscriptions and perpetual licenses. Please contact the K-MINE team to learn each module’s price.
How can the information be transferred from one module to another?
K-MINE is one stand-alone application with a single database, so no data transfer is necessary. Different teams can have access to data according to their user rights.
Is K-MINE a cloud-based software?
No, K-MINE is a desktop application, however, upon request, our team can install access on the Windows server where we can set up a cloud infrastructure.
