All MineARC refuge chambers and safe havens currently installed with a Series I, II or III scrubber can be upgraded to a Series IV control system. MineARC technicians can also retro-fit most non- MineARC chambers with the Series IV.
The digital controller interface is the operational hub of the refuge chamber. From here all power, lighting and scrubbing systems can be managed with the push of a button.Exclusive to the MineARC Series IV Control System, i.V.A.N (intelligent voice audio navigation) represents a breakthrough in safe-refuge technology. i.V.A.N is the onboard navigation assistant that guides occupants through operational procedures.The system can also be programmed in virtually any language; useful for international operations where more than one language is spoken on site.
- MARCISORB Chemical Cartridges
The MineARC Series IV Scrubbing System uses pre-packaged MARCISORB chemical absorber cartridges, an improved alternative to the traditional free-pour chemicals found in earlier scrubbing systems models. MineARC’s MARCISORB CO2 and MARCISORB CO cartridges provide superior scrubbing capacity, are easy to load, safe to handle, and can store for long periods.The use of chemical cartridges also translates to noticeable cost savings over the life of the chamber when compared to free-pour methods.

SCRUBBING SYSTEM COMPARISON
Considered the most advanced safe refuge technology in the world, MineARC recommends the Series IV upgrade as the most cost efficient and beneficial long term solution if you are looking to improve the cost effectiveness and operation of your chamber.
However, if you currently own a combination of Series I, II and III chambers and do not wish to invest in a site-wide upgrade, we would recommend a Series I/II to III upgrade on all applicable chambers . Not only will this achieve consistency across your site in regards to spare parts, servicing and training, but you will also benefit from many improved features that are available in the Series III control system and allow you the option of a Plenum upgrade if desired.
