  • 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

  • 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
