En consulta con empresas mineras líderes del mundo y autoridades regionales competentes, MineSAFE ha desarrollado y diseñado una línea de modelos CoalSAFE intrínsecamente seguros para responder a distintos entornos de la minería de carbón subterránea. Con el correr de los años las cámaras de refugio CoalSAFE de MineARC se han ido perfeccionando y brindan a los mineros lo más óptimo en seguridad por sus características, funciones y desempeño.

Las configuraciones van de 8 a 24 ocupantes.

Además, las dimensiones y la capacidad de personas de las cámaras de refugio CoalSAFE se pueden diseñar a medida para responder a especificaciones propias de la mina, sin afectar la seguridad ni su desempeño.

 

CoalSAFE IHS Series

 

 


 

Inside a MineARC CoalSAFE Refuge Chamber, a number of vital life-support systems combine to create a safe, ongoing environment for occupants. Through innovative design, the CoalSAFE provides both a powerless carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide scrubber, as well as a powerless air conditioning system – The MARCis (MineARC Air Refuge Chamber intrinsically safe). Utilising a sequential operating procedure, the chamber’s life-support systems can be activated in less than 60 seconds during an emergency.
