Air Quality
Management

  
   
MineARC offers a range of air quality management products, designed to create safe, breathable air for personnel sheltering in an enclosed space.
   
During entrapment, carbon dioxide is expired by the occupants as part of their normal breathing activity. Carbon monoxide and other toxic gases can also enter the main chamber via the compressed air intake (if it becomes compromised), and as occupants enter and/or exit the main chamber entrance.
   
The range includes scrubbing, filtration and gas detection products; all important and life-saving equipment that should be considered when developing a safe refuge plan.

  • Compressed Air Management System

     
    The Compressed Air Management System (CAMS) is a breathable air system that is unique to the market; offering a range of features aimed at reducing running costs and improving operational safety during an emergency.
     
    Aside from providing clean breathable air through a superior four-phase filtration process, some of the major benefits of CAMS include; optimisation of mine air services, guarantee against over pressurisation of the refuge chamber, gas toxicity monitoring, flood protection, and reduced service time during filter change-out.
     
    All new MineARC Chambers with compressed air feature the Compressed Air Management System. Currently owned chambers can also be retro-fitted with the CAMS upon request. – More information

    MineARC’s new Compressed Air Management System (CAMS) marks the beginning of a new era in refuge chamber technology. This ground breaking piece of equipment was launched in July 2015, after more than a year of research, development and testing conducted by MineARC’s engineering team.

     

    MAJOR BENEFITS

    • Faster service time
    • Flood Protection Valve for automatic mine air shut off in the event of water ingress
    • Air toxicity monitoring and emergency shut off valve
    • Optimisation of mine air usage, resulting in considerably reduced operational costs
    • Security against over-pressurisation

    STANDARD FEATURES

    Filter Clips

    Precision engineered clip-in/clip-out system allows for quick and easy filter change-over; minimising damage to parts and reducing service time by up to 80%.

    Air Toxicity Monitor

    Automatically diverts mine air if oxygen levels in the airline fall below a set level.

    Flood Protection Filter

    Automatically shuts down mine air in the event of water ingress.

    Pre-Filter

    0.5 micron pre-filter to remove solid particles from the air.

    Coalescing Filter

    0.01 micron coalescing filter to trap and remove liquid, oil and water from the air.

    Absorption Filter

    0.01 micron absorption filter to absorb smells and odours from the air, making it suitable and comfortable for breathing.

  • AirGEN Scrubber

    The MineARC AirGEN is a standalone air regenerative system that ‘scrubs’ the air inside enclosed spaces, removing harmful gases such as CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) – a vital requirement for any sealed environment sheltering human life for an extended period of time.
     
    Only a shelter that is completely sealed from the external environment guarantees safety from the ingress of smoke and other harmful toxins. Both CO and CO2 can become lethal in high concentrations. This valuable life saving equipment has been designed to operate standalone in any refuge chamber, safe haven, bomb shelter or survival shelter. – More information

  • Carbon Monoxide Safety Off System

     
    Suitable for all MineARC refuge chamber models, the MineARC carbon monoxide Safety Off System (CMSOS) enables the automatic shut off of compressed air if carbon monoxide (CO) levels are detected in excessive amounts.
     
    The SOS system is designed to protect occupants from potentially fatal CO which can be pumped into the chamber if the compressed air supply is compromised. – More information

    The COSOS is pre-programmed to shut off the compressed air supply if CO levels greater than 25 PPM are detected.

    The system will not allow the mine air back into the chamber until CO levels fall below the nominated threshold. The LED screen located on the front of the control unit gives gas readings in real time.
