RT Welding & Fabrication, Inc. was contracted by Carbonoks to build the first Rescue Alternative that would use the Venture Harmful Gas Removal system. This system had received partial MSHA Part 7 Approval but had never actually been installed and made operational in a RA that would be put in service in an underground coal mine.
RTW created the design changes necessary to install this Harmful Gas Removal system. RTW also designed, manufactured and installed the required duct work, the mounting of the unit and the wiring configuration external to the unit.
After completed, this RA was put in service in a West Virginia coal mine. Carbonoks along with the mine operator were well pleased with our performance and the finished product.
