Communication
Systems

  
  
MineARC’s communication systems range offers a variety of products suited to harsh industrial conditions and underground environments.
 
Designed to remain functioning when all other systems have failed, the range includes the Rescue Dog (a through-the-earth text messaging device) and Stench Gas (an odourising alert system suited to noisy locations).

 

 

ANTI-STENCH GAS UNIT

Anti-stench works as a chemical neutraliser, counteracting the pungent odour of Ethyl Mercaptan. It is recommended that following stench gas activation, all ventilation lines are flushed with MineARC Anti-Stench, in order to neutralise the active scent component of the chemical.

  • Electric Stench Gas System

    The electric stench gas system is MineARC’s premium range, comprising a twin cylinder stench gas unit and a sub-controller that can be connected through to an existing mine control system or to the optional MineARC Stench Gas Master Controller.
     
    This fully electrical system allows for safe, remote operation of the stench gas units via the sub-controller in the event of an emergency, removing the need for local activation. – More information

  • Manual Stench Gas System

    MineARC’s standard manual stench gas unit comprises a set of twin gas cylinders housed within a durable steel cabinet with reflective signage, designed specifically for harsh underground conditions.
     
    The stench gas cylinders are manually activated via gas release valves on the top of the exterior housing. Pressure gauges indicate successful release of the gas. – More information

  • Rescue Dog System

    MineARC’s Rescue Dog Through-The-Earth (TTE) System provides critical emergency communication between surface and underground when all other systems have failed.
     
    Relying on minimal fixed infrastructure, the Rescue Dog is capable of communicating directly through the earth at distances of up to 1,500m (5000ft). A single surface controller can manage up to 16 individual sub-surface receivers, making the Rescue Dog a highly versatile and scalable communications solution for your emergency response plan (ERP). – More information
