Air Moving Systems

Achieve optimum ventilation with minimum water consumption. Highly effective in dusty and gaseous mining environments.

Venturi principle air movers

CDC is the only South African manufacturer of water-powered and hydraulic-powered air moving systems for use with continuous miners and road headers.

Available in water- and hydraulic-powered versions, our air moving systems, based on the Venturi principle, improve underground mine ventilation, increasing health and safety for miners.

Our water-powered air movers operate on the Venturi Principle to create air movement and, when correctly positioned, prevent dust rollback over the mining machine conveyor.

  • High volume rates with low water usage
  • Fitted vertically (road header) or horizontally (continuous miner conveyors)
  • Constructed of mild steel with galvanised or stainless steel pipes for nozzle fitment
  • Available ex-stock for fast delivery
  • Spare parts kept ex-stock

Healthy air flow, minimal dust

CDC air movers do not interfere with the vital airflow patterns across the cutting face. When strategically placed on continuous miners, they develop significant air movement, which flows past the operator and into the scrubber unit, ensuring excellent dust capture.

Incorporating nozzles that entrain flow, CDC water-powered air movers are ideally fitted on to a continuous miner above the conveyor. The hydraulic-powered version is designed for use with road headers and is fitted to the gathering apron.

CDC air movers provide a high proportion of air entrainment due to the high dynamic speed of the nozzles. When used in conjunction with the CDC wet fan scrubber, extremely low dust levels in the operating area can be achieved.

We tailor all our equipment to suit clients’ exact specifications.
