Clearing the air [ES2016D2]

Scott Safety (Hall 6, Stand B147 with its French partner TR Equipment) is highlighting its Light Decontamination System (LDS, inset), which can deliver any chemistry, powder, polymer or liquid as atomised micro droplets. LDS offers a hybrid solution capable of decontamination, disinfection, knockdown and tiedown of radiological particulate and spores, odour abatement and the extinguishing of Class A and B fires.

At 17 trillion microdroplets per second delivered at supersonic speed, the manpack LDS delivers a highly turbulent and penetrative plume of chemistry out to 25-30m. This ensures extremely rapid fill of interiors; the superfine mist’s gas-like behaviour reaches all non-line of sight surfaces without atmospheric preparation and without disruption to electronic equipment and lighting. A remote delivery option provides similar effects by combining the LDS core system with a tripod-mounted 360° nozzle.

Another hybrid solution promoted is the PATRIOT 5510 (main pic), which provides one platform for a wide range of respiratory protective scenarios.

The responder can approach the incident scene on either a negative pressure filter or purified powered air. Should air contamination levels change, such as a decrease in oxygen levels or a build-up of carbon monoxide, the operator can immediately switch to self-contained breathing apparatus. The system monitors the responder’s location, position, body temperature, pulse and breathing rate, as well as battery life and cylinder levels.
