The Portable Fresh Air Bay is a completely powerless, inflatable refuge chamber that deploys rapidly to provide 96 hours of breathable air to miners trapped underground. High pressure compressed air cylinders inflate and fill the Bay with fresh air and compressed oxygen cylinders and a CO2 scrubber maintain breathable air inside the chamber.

NSK supplies high-quality bearings for contaminated and inadequately lubricated environments in the mining and aggregates industries.
Typical bearing failures: Most bearings don't reach their full L10 calculated life. NSK's Tough Steel family of bearings addresses the root causes of over 80% of bearing failures seen in their failure analysis labs: marginal lubrication and contamination.
NSK's Long-Life Spherical Roller Bearings for vibrating equipment are engineered specifically to contend with high-speeds, shock loading, misalignment, marginal lubrication and frequent vibration of equipment used in mining, aggregate, cement and construction industries.
