Trailer based CBRN decontamination module.

Allen Vanguard : 13 December, 2007  (New Product)
Allen-Vanguard releases decontamination trailer for chemical, biological and radiological hazards for use by the armed forces and emergency services.
Global security expert Allen-Vanguard has launched three new decontamination systems for use in a wide range of situations from large-scale incidents to emergency spot decontamination of chemical, biological and radioactive hazards, and in response to accidents involving general toxic substances.

The Dual Tank Integrated System on Trailer is a modular, heavy duty mobile CBRN decontamination system developed for the large scale decontamination of vehicles, buildings, equipment and terrain.

Simple to operate and maintain, it is self contained and carries on-board chemicals, mixing, hoses and nozzles. Using Allen-Vanguard's Surface Decontamination Foam (SDFâ„¢), it can be set up and operational within 10 minutes of arrival by a single operator and is capable of pre-wash, decon and post-rinse operations.

This new system can decontaminate approximately 500 square metres per hour, yet it is simple to use and easy to manoeuvre, explains Rob Wenham, CBRN product specialist at Allen-Vanguard. It is ideal for continuous use in emergency chemical or biological threat situations.

Easy access up and down stairs and through doorways was an important factor in the design of the Dual Tank Trike, a self-contained unit for emergency decontamination of larger surface areas on hardware or buildings. The Dual Tank Trike is rugged, portable and simple to operate by a single person, and has a decontamination capability of 113 square metres per dose of SDF.

The Dual Tank Trike has a special aerating nozzle which produces a sticky and long lasting foam which adheres well to walls and ceilings, adds Rob. The foam is thick and consistent enough to prevent any vapour or dust escaping from the chemical or biological agents while the decontaminant eliminates the threat.

For emergency spot decontamination, Allen-Vanguard has introduced its latest portable backpack system. The Dual Tank Backpack is capable of carrying a larger volume of liquid than its predecessor, the Concealed Backpack, and now features an optional fan spray nozzle for more rapid area coverage.

Not only has this backpack been tested and proved rugged and simple to operate, but it can be successfully recharged and reused for multiple applications, explains Rob.

All three new products utilise Allen-Vanguards SDF decontaminant foam, which was designed for safe use on all types of material surfaces and rapidly neutralises all known military chemical and biological warfare agents. The revolutionary design of the dual tanks and the use of pre-measured chemical payloads now extends the pot life of the decontaminant up to 48 hours which is extremely useful for extended operations.
