Aura-FX Digital Gas Monitoring
Aura-FX Digital Gas monitoring is an essential aspect of maintaining a life-supporting atmosphere within the refuge chamber. During entrapment, occupants consume oxygen and expire carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) as part of their normal respiration. CO can also enter the chamber during occupant entry and if the compressed air intake is compromised.
Closely monitoring gas levels in the chamber allows occupants to take corrective actions to maintain a safe and inhabitable environment. MineARC’s new Aura-FX Digital Gas Monitoring System is a proprietary fixed gas monitoring unit, designed specifically for use in refuge chambers and safe havens.
Aura-FX is standard on all new MineARC Refuge Chambers and Safe Havens. It is also available to retrofit to most existing chambers during an upgrade or refurbishment.
A vast improvement on current digital gas monitors (DGMs) on the market, Aura-FX provides a more convenient solution to internal refuge gas monitoring. Aura-FX has the ability to individually monitor anywhere 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 into the refuge chamber as required.
When utilised as part of the MineARC System Intelligence network, Aura-FX provides real-time gas monitoring data and analysis to the surface via the GuardIAN Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics System dashboard.
Digital Gas Monitoring Node – GuardIAN Gas Node Digital Gas Monitoring Nodes from the GuardIAN range provide a remote gas monitoring solution for mine sites; designed specifically to be mounted to rock wall and high traffic areas of the underground mine. Sensor technology within each node monitors gas levels in surrounding areas; designed to facilitate
Refuge Chamber Monitoring Refuge Chamber Monitoring with GuardIAN is an exciting new development in refuge chamber technology. GuardIAN Refuge Chamber Monitoring enables real-time monitoring; providing confidence that an operation’s fleet of refuge chambers are emergency ready at all times. It is an independent system that continuously monitors all vital refuge operating systems. During standby mode, GuardIAN
Handheld Gas Detection Handheld gas detection with MineARC’s Aura-PT has been designed to provide underground personnel with the ability to continuously monitor up to six gases within their immediate surroundings. When used in conjunction with the GuardIAN Intelligence Network, Aura-PT automatically communicates dangerous gas levels back to the GuardIAN Server via adjacent GuardIAN Nodes. The
