MineARC has been providing ChemSAFESafe Haven and Shelter-in-Place solutions to the petrochemicals, refining and power generation industries for almost 10 years. Emergency response requirement differ depending on a site’s processing conditions, location of personnel, dangerous goods inventory, and other important factors.
MineARC ChemSAFE solutions offer a safe and secure ‘go-to’ area for multiple personnel in the vent of a toxic chemical release, fire, explosion, or other hazardous emergency response scenario. The range includes fully transportable Safe Havens as well as “Shelter-in-Place’ Room Conversions and Sealed Rooms with purpose-built life support system.
To be classified as a safe haven, a refuge must
- Be sealed, enclosed environment with 0% air change per hour (ACH).
- Provide a source of clean, breathable air by removing carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide from the internal atmosphere and adding in medical grade oxygen
- Control the internal environment through heating and cooling.
- Have a back-up supply of power to support the internal systems if main power is lost.
Exclusive to MineARC, iVAN (Intelligent Voice Audio Navigation) represents a breakthrough in safe-refuge technology. iVAN is an on-board navigation assistant that guides occupants through operational procedures.
Apart from the above,MineARC Automated Oxygen Delivery System (AODS) is designed to maintain a safe breathable atmosphere within the Safe Haven.
The AODS disperses metered amount of oxygen supplied by a compressed oxygen cylinder. The AODS maintains oxygen level between 18.3% and 23% inside the safe haven when the external fresh air supply has been compromised or is unavailable.
