The MineARC Refuge Chamber Refurbishment Program is available to MineARC and non-MineARC Refuge Chambers alike, thus converting your non-MineARC chambers into a fully functioning part of your MineARC fleet.
The first stage of a refuge chamber refurbishment is the fabrication of any sections of the chamber shell that have incurred structural damage due to neglect, accident or general wear and tear from years of sitting underground. Our engineers and experienced workshop technicians will perform a comprehensive assessment of the state of the refuge chamber structure in order to ascertain what requires full re-fabrication or just repair.
After any necessary fabrication work has taken place, the shell of the refuge chamber is repainted. MineARC utilises a special high durability white paint for all of our refuge chambers. This aids in underground visibility, provides protection against corrosion and complies with AS/NZS 2312:2002. Painting is performed by a qualified spray painter to ensure a quality finish and long life in any harsh industrial environment.
COMPONENTRY REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
After the shell of the refuge chamber has been repaired and repainted, all internal and external componentry is inspected and tested for damage and general wear and tear. Parts will be repaired or replaced based on the extent of damage to ensure the chamber is in full working condition once again.
