Epiroc launched fully automatic functionality for its Serpent ventilation system, which is designed to automatically optimize air quality, air flow and energy expenditure.

It then automatically adjusts fan speed to continuously ensure adequate air flow and a perfectly regulated underground work environment. Serpent fan stations already in use, or other ventilation systems equipped with VFD, can be upgraded to include the new automatic functions. Serpent Automatic is delivered as a central module that is mounted onto the base station, while the sensors are placed in the tunnel or mine.
