Custom Ventilation Systems
Paul’s Fan Company manufactures large axial vane fans for the underground mining industry. Custom-built with pride in our home factory of Virginia, USA, our team of experts can help you customize a fan according to your site air and access requirements.
In addition to custom ventilation systems, we offer a full selection of fans to meet nearly all applications, from blowing ventilation to exhausting ventilation. Accessories and add-ons are available for your ventilation system as well.
Whether you need custom steel ductwork to accommodate the layout of your mine site or silencers and baffles that lower sound levels, let us create a ventilation system specially designed for your application.
Emergency Escape Hoist Systems
To take the functionality of your ventilation system to the next level, emergency escape hoists can now be incorporated into your overall ventilation system design.
Hoists are designed to function when the emergency escape route is in the same shaft where the fan is installed. You can trust in our expertise to custom design the escape hoist and exit into the ductwork of the fan system, improving the overall performance and efficiency of your operation.
Our emergency hoist systems don’t have to be installed in the ductwork and can be set up as a standalone system. We offer round or square capsules that will fit according to your drilled shaft. The hoists are rugged and strong, able to accommodate four individuals at a time, or up to 800 pounds. Hoists fit a variable shaft length, from a short 50-foot tunnel to a 2,500 foot drilled shaft.
Escape Hoists Designed For Safety & Security
Paul’s Fan Systems escape hoists are engineered for increased safety and security for your miners. When the need arises for your miners to escape quickly and without question of reliability, our hoist will deliver.
The hoist system utilizes a series of steel cables, one that directly connects the capsule to the hoist reel, and additional cables are used as guides to keep the capsule secure while ascending or descending through the shaft.
Our hoists are available for purchase today.
