TruOval MineVent® layflat blower ducting has been specially engineered for the mine, tunnel, and underground construction industries to maximize air flow and increase headroom in underground environments.
ABC Industries, Inc. has launched its new TruOval MineVent® line of layflat blower ducting for the mine, tunnel, and underground construction industries. The patented design reduces air flow friction and maximizes head room without compromising air flow output.
TruOval MineVent® is engineered with suspension cables spaced intermittently through the ducting to maintain the ducting’s oval shape. By utilizing an internal cable suspension system and eliminating the fabric divider typically seen in oval layflat ducting, TruOval MineVent® minimizes the amount of air flow friction and maximizes the ventilation system’s efficiency. Its oval shape also allows for more headroom in confined spaces and accommodates higher profile underground equipment.
“TruOval MineVent® was developed in response to our customers’ requests for ABC’s MineVent® to be made in a space-saving, oval configuration,” remarked Steve Fleagle, President and CEO of ABC Industries, Inc. “ABC’s patented design creates a ‘true oval’ duct, eliminating the center divider found in traditional fabric oval ducting products.”
TruOval MineVent’s® welded construction reduces air loss, weakening, and premature failure associated with conventional sewn ducting. The durable RipStop substrate prevents small tears from becoming major holes. TruOval MineVent® ventilation ducting also features a series of easy-to-handle accessories that require less space, are more cost-effective, and smoothly transfer air through bends and transitions. All TruOval MineVent® fabrics have been tested and approved by the Mine Safety and Health Administration Standards (MSHA).
TruOval MineVent® joins ABC’s line of MineVent® products that are distinctively designed for the mine, tunnel, and underground construction industries. In addition to MineVent®, ABC industries also offers MineDuct® wire-reinforced ducting, RigiDuct® filament-wound fiberglass ducting, brattice, fly pads, and blast curtains.
