Ventilation-on-Demand at Delphi Distomon

Ventilation on Demand

A sustainability paradigm for Mytilineos Group

Why air quality in industrial workplaces matters

It goes without saying that corporate should comply with H&S workplace regulations. For miners, air quality is of major concern, as it is linked to their operators’ health and productivity. To adhere to strict ventilation regulations and norms, they set up infrastructure with high operational cost, ensuring the air quality in the underground areas and preserving the employees’ wellbeing.

Ventilation-on-Demand & sustainability

The Ventilation-on-Demand (VoD) is an Industry 4.0 solution that controls ventilation, while monitoring the concentration of O2, CO2, CO, NO2, NO, H2S, SO2 and the air flow within the mine.

The air quality real-time data, provide a comprehensive occupational health awareness and allow for optimal ventilation control in order to ensure good air quality and increase energy efficiency. Upon exception, role-based assignees are notified to fix promptly air quality issues.

Impressively, reduction on ventilation energy can be achieved up to 30% with VoD. Mining is an energy consuming process; the ventilation energy is 50% or more of the electric energy budget!

Our Ventilation-on-Demand solution

The IIoT gauging equipment is installed within the mine to measure air quality and air flow in real-time. Air quality parameters are adaptable to meet any mine requirements and regulations. Bilateral connectivity to the VoD server is ensured by an innovative wireless LoRa technology, designed for underground mines.

The IIoT controlling unit connects the ventilator drives to control their operation and adjust air speed. Additionally, energy consumption data are sent to the VoD server for data driven intelligent decisions.

The VoD cloud platform provides a user-friendly environment to deploy the optimal ventilation control. Everything essential to decision-making support is included: versatile dashboard with real-time graphical depicture of ventilation parameters, detailed reporting and a role-based notification system. Incidents, like power or ventilator failure are instantly reported, differentiating from the time-consuming and hazardous manual processes of the past.

Using the VoD platform, mine managers are able to edit weekly ventilation schedules, considering working shifts and blasting planning. Out of working hours, reduced air speed and expanded ventilating time lead to significant savings, upholding the same result in terms of fresh air volume.

Up to 22% savings on ventilation energy for Delphi Distomon!

Delphi Distomon SA, is one of the largest producers of bauxite in Greece and in Europe. On 2019 they launched initiatives to improve ventilation in their underground mines and in preparation for tighter regulations in 2023. Emphasis DigiWorld deployed a pilot solution in 2019 and by 2021 VoD was fully deployed, demonstrating excellent results both in terms of optimizing underground air quality and reducing up to 22% of the ventilation energy cost!

Introducing TFOOD: our latest solution for milk tank monitoring

Dairy firms aim for products of the highest quality and profit maximization

In order to procure raw materials, they partner with dairy farmers, who store the milk in tanks up to the final destination which is the processing plant.

Until then, the milk that accumulates in the tanks is kept under proper environmental conditions and is stirred periodically to maintain the optimal quality of the product.

How is milk quality assessed?

Good quality milk is ought to be harmless to public health, being kept at a low temperature, especially after pasteurization and having lower processing costs. It should also be suitable for the production of high-quality dairy, accruing higher business revenue as a result.

What is TFOOD solution?

TFOOD monitors the milk tank’s cooling state, agitator, and power connection. It is a reliable digital service increasing milk revenue, preventing germ exposure, and enhancing milk quality and safety for further process.

TFOOD sensor data is apt to adjust storage conditions exactly to the specifications of your dairy and in accordance with Certified food-safe to EU 1935/2004 and EU 10/2011 standards.

Notifications on a smartphone and a warning light on the tank inform producers on time regarding cooling milk tank malfunctions and critical storage conditions.

A Dashboard summarizes the milk tank data, while sophisticated Data Analytics and Reports are available to the dairy industry personnel responsible for the milk quality and for  the maintenance of the milk tank equipment.

MEVGAL, a brand synonymous with Authentic Greek high-quality dairy products, uses TFOOD to supervise the milk quality on farmer sites and automate maintenance processes.

Our purpose:

Assisting the dairy industry firms in achieving higher milk quality and safety standards, always in accordance with our ethos and regulations regarding public health safety.
