MORE ABOUT OUR HARD ROCK PERMANENT CHAMBERS
MineARC’s® patented permanent hard-rock refuge chamber unit features the most advanced technology of its kind in the world.
The self contained unit is designed to clean air of harmful gases and toxins from within confined spaces. MineARC® developed the technology to provide occupants with ease
of use, extended time periods between chemical change outs, and protection from deadly carbon dioxide (CO2) & carbon monoxide (CO) - present in smoke filled environments.
MineARC® Systems recognises that the chamber’s environment must be cooled due to the potentially fatal buildup of metabolic heat created by occupants in confined spaces.
MineARC® permanent hard-rock refuge chambers are designed to be easily transported and placed within underground lunch rooms and excavations.

MORE ABOUT OUR COAL PERMANENT CHAMBERS
MineARC®’s patented permanent powerless refuge chamber features an intrinsically safe (non-electrically powered) carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO)
scrubbing system, with integrated air-conditioning. MineARC® Systems recognises that cooling is essential for combating the potentially fatal effects of metabolic heat
buildup. MineARC®’s permanent refuge chamber unit will maintain internal apparent temperatures below 95°F / 80% humidity - as stipulated under US MSHA 2009 ‘Final
Rule’. MineARC® permanent refuge chambers are designed to be easily transported and placed within underground lunch rooms and excavations.
