In highly explosive environments, refuge chambers and safe havens can be adapted to withstand overpressure of up to 15 psi. A refuge chambers resistance to explosions can be determined through pressure testing.
Emergency Response Team uses service training to better prepare for any event and provide all employees with well-maintained and hazard ready chambers.
MineARC Australia manufactures 1500th refuge chamber, MA1500 – a major milestone for the global safety company.
A pressure system for shelter-in-place locations is critical to maintaining positive internal pressure and preventing the ingress of toxic gases.
Four, 40-person ChemSAFE Standard Design safe havens were installed and commissioned at Yara Pilbara Fertilisers, located at the Burrup Peninsula near Karratha in Western Australia.
A suite of advanced safe refuge technology, collectively known as MineARC’s System Intelligence.
The primary control over the internal environment of a refuge chamber to ensure it can preserve life is that it is hermetically sealed, or air tight.
Every refuge chamber requires an emergency power source to maintain the life-sustaining equipment if mains power fails.
N.B.C. (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) Shelter uses AirGEN to purify air within the chamber.
