A refuge chamber has two critical systems that work together to prevent gases getting inside and support an airtight environment…
Environmental monitoring is a critical aspect of underground safety; technology has evolved to developed integrated digital gas monitoring for underground worksites to include in-chamber and site-wide fixed gas monitoring and handheld devices.
Monitoring gas levels in tunnelling and underground construction is crucial to providing a safe work environment. How can this be done safely and effectively?
Gas monitors for a tunnelling refuge chamber allows occupants to measure levels in and outside of a chamber and taking corrective action to maintain a safe environment.
Monitoring gas levels in mines and underground is crucial to providing a safe work environment. How can this be done safely and effectively?
Gas monitors for a refuge chamber allows occupants to measure levels in and outside of a chamber; taking corrective action to maintain a safe environment.
If Methane levels rise, the risk also increases. The potential for ignition and explosion of methane is one of the most severe natural hazards.
Hydrogen sulfide is exceptionally hazardous, due to its high levels of flammability and toxicity. Risks to personnel should be known…
What is Carbon Monoxide? Also known as the ‘silent killer’ it is highly toxic. It is present underground, at chemical facilities and can build up within a refuge chamber.
What is Carbon Dioxide? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colourless and odourless gas, existing in Earth’s atmosphere as a trace gas at a concentration of about 400ppm (0.04%) by volume. Natural sources of CO2 include volcanoes and hot springs, and being soluble in water, it occurs naturally in groundwater, rivers, lakes, ice caps, glaciers, and […]
