Underground Ventilation SystemsMoreinformation


Atlas Copco offers a complete ventilation solution for tunneling and underground mining operations, including system design and installation of fan stations and ducting.


Serpent Ventilation Fans

High pressure Serpent fans for underground mining and tunneling projects.

  • To maintain high system pressure, up to five fan units of any diameters and motor sizes can be connected in series at a single fan station.
  • Serpent fans move the maximum amount of air per unit of energy. For optimal energy savings, fans can be fitted with a frequency control switch.
  • Serpent fans are available with standard or super silencers to eliminate high frequency sounds and reduce noise levels to a minimum.

Atlas Copco's high pressure Serpent fans are designed to deliver air through ducts in underground mining and tunneling projects. Our fans are available in different sizes and combinations to fit your needs, from small projects to extensive operations deep underground. The fans are statically and dynamically balanced, have automatic lubrication systems, and are manufactured with fully welded steel casings and an anticorrosive coating to provide consistently high performance, even in the harshest environments.

To fit your needs, Atlas Copco offers two types of PVC-coated ducts in a variety of lengths and diameters. The optimal ducts for standard installations are made of a lightweight, yet very durable material. For installations with high-pressure requirements, we can supply a thicker, extremely tough fabric. Both duct types can be delivered with or without anti-static performance. All Serpent ducting has low internal friction to reduce energy consumption and lower operational cost.
