During August, MineARC System’s Head Office in Perth Western Australia was pleased to host a group of delegates from one of our key industrial partners PetroChina Southwest Oil and Gas Company.

Led by Mr. Zhu Jin – HSE Manager for PetroChina Southwest, the delegation of six PetroChina staff members visited our manufacturing facility to meet the team, learn more about the origins of the chambers they had recently purchased and to see first-hand MineARC’s full scope of capabilities in safe haven technologies designed specifically for the petrochemical processing industry.

As described in a previous case study ‘One of a Kind ChemSAFE Engineered for PetroChina Gasfield’, MineARC Systems were able to successfully assist PetroChina with the development of their safe haven solutions for PetroChina’s Moxi Block of the Anyue gas reservoir. During this project, MineARC set the benchmark for gas and petrochemical safe havens in China by providing PetroChina with the most technologically advanced, state of the art features currently available in the market.

During their visit, the delegation spent time with MineARC’s Engineering team, quizzing them on all aspects of safe refuge practices in the natural gas processing industry; gaining an insight into future developments in the industry and how this will positively impact on PetroChina’s growing fleet of safe havens. Of particular interest to the team was MineARC’s new proprietary digital gas monitoring system Aura-FX.

Aura-FX is the first digital gas monitoring system to be specifically design for effective use within a refuge chamber or safe haven. With the capacity to monitor up to eleven gasses both internally and externally, Aura-FX displays gas readings as well as ambient humidity and temperature readings, in up to six easy to read, intuitive touch screen displays. In conjunction with Aura-FX’s superior reliability in detecting contaminants, Aura-FX links directly with the MineARC Series IV scrubbing system; giving voice prompts when action is required to replace scrubbing chemical or alter the flow of oxygen in the chamber.
