A Global Engineering Team at the Forefront of Safety Technology
The MineARC Engineering Team are the key drivers of our continual advancements in product solutions. Our team of nine fully qualified in-house engineers and electricians within our Australian, South African and North American offices form a global network. Sharing skills and knowledge across international borders results in developing solid and innovative ideas and allowing for 24hr engineering support for our clients.
“Our global team of engineers are highly focused on research and development, which has proven critical to keeping MineARC at the leading edge of technology and design,” says Geoff Whittaker, Director. “It is important for us here at MineARC to provide the team with the best software and resources available to keep them at the top of their game.”
Take a look at some of our latest R&D Projects:
GuardIAN Refuge Chamber Monitoring: GuardIAN Refuge Chamber Monitoring (GuardIAN RCM) is an onboard system that continuously monitors all vital refuge operating systems. During standby mode, GuardIAN RCM checks for component faults and monitors refuge chamber usage or entry to the chamber.
Aura-FX Digital Fixed Gas Monitoring System: Aura-FX has the ability to individually monitor up to 11 gases via a series of user-friendly, digital screens. Audible voice alarms will prompt occupants to replace scrubbing chemicals or adjust oxygen supply levels in the refuge chamber as required.
