Monitoring air pollution at mines

Whether you’re a mining operator or a consultant offering monitoring services to your mining clients, AQMesh offers a robust, versatile and reliable solution for air pollution monitoring across the site and along the site perimeter.

Why monitor around mining facilities?

Monitoring along the site boundary or perimeter is important for several reasons:-

  • Compliance with regulations
  • Protection of neighbouring communities
  • Triggering ventilation or dust mitigation systems

Site operators have used AQMesh for a number of monitoring projects, including feasibility studies and to provide baseline air pollution and dust levels before a site is operational, ahead of continuous real-time monitoring of daily site operations. AQMesh is also used for fence line or boundary monitoring along the site’s perimeter, to measure ambient pollution levels and check what - if any - pollutants are making their way off site and potentially harming nearby communities or the local environment. 

How can AQMesh help with monitoring at your site?

AQMesh is an accurate, compact and robust low cost air quality monitoring system that is ideal for monitoring in harsh environments. It has been easily installed by users across their mining facilities on posts, walls or fences, and once installed there is no need to visit the site. The data - which is completely owned by the user - is securely accessed from anywhere via a web app or API feed to integrate with their own databases or modelling systems. AQMesh has proven long-term stability and accuracy, and can use real-time alerts for activating ventilation or dust mitigation systems or threshold as exceedence alarms. The heated inlet used in AQMesh has benefited numerous customers by reducing the effects of moisture, and the data processing algorithms can flag up erroneous data points caused by deliquescence. Several pods can be installed across the site or along the site boundary for continuous monitoring of 10+ pollutants and all users are able to access remote support and diagnostics from the most experienced team in the industry.
