Survival Capsule / Capsule

Survival Capsule
Survival Capsule

Survival Capsule is a quick-inflatable first-aid equipment placed in the mine. Once a mine accident happened, miners can start the equipment and the inflating system inside Survival Capsule will quickly produce large amounts of gas and promptly fill the airbag which forms a hemispherical hollow gasbag. The miners can hide in the gasbag to avoid injures by falling objects. In addition, the signal device on top of the gasbag can send distress signal to the ground and guide the rescue.
