SMT stands for Surface Mount Technology – the process of mounting electronic components directly onto the surface of a printed circuit board (PCB). Bringing this process in-house gives us full control over the quality, quantity and timeframe of our printed circuit board production; whilst allowing us to expand our R&D capabilities in this area.

There are several differences in fresh air base and permanent shelter designs, impacting their emergency use suitability. Some critical variations include gas monitoring, multiple air supplies, cooling and a sealed environment. These differences have and will impact personnel well-being.
Nitrogen is an essential element to all forms of life but can also pose a threat. Known as the invisible killer, due to it’s odourless and tasteless nature, nitrogen gas can be lethal if inhaled in high concentrations.
Transporting and manoeuvring a refuge chamber can be a rather technical task, especially when considering the size and weight of a refuge chamber – not to mention the confines of mine declines and haulages. In this article, we’ll discuss the various options MineARC offers to suit various transportation and mine practicalities.
Hydrogen Sulfide is a naturally occurring chemical that can be produced by bacteria in low oxygen environments, used in many industries despite its hazardous nature.
Compressed air technology in refuge chambers is important to provide clean breathing air and maintain a positive internal pressure.
Mining safety standards have evolved dramatically since personnel were first using canaries to signal the presence of dangerous gases underground.
One of the biggest questions we get once a chamber has been bought, is “what happens now?”. Once a chamber has been purchased and delivered to site, it needs to be put through the commissioning process.
When a refuge chamber scrubber is on, it does produce noise. This noise comes from a fan inside the unit that draws air in and pushes it out.
Ultra-wideband (UWB) is a close-range radio technology that uses low power consumption to achieve high bandwidth connections.
