The Bioquell Defence Rigid Shelter CBRN Filtration system is configured to provide clean filtered air directly into a shelter or via the platform air conditioning system as the fresh air make up, and utilised COTS parts to produce an affordable and reliable low life-cycle cost solution.
The system can be adapted to suit a variety of airflow and shelter pressure requirements and incorporates the standard NATO No 1 composite CBRN 170m3/hr filter. It can also be configured to utilise single phase 110, 230 or 415 volt three phase power supplies, automatically adjusting for 50 or 60 Hz.
Platforms currently utilising CBRN filtration systems include Marshall SV DARS and Watchkeeper projects, BAE Systems Challenger 2 and Force Protection Cougar.
How long does a CBRN filter last?
The life of any CBRN filter is dependent upon the concentration of any attack, type of attack, weather conditions and duration of the attack or CBRN threat.
What is the flow rate of the system?
The NATO No1 and US M48 CBRN filters are rated to deliver 170m3/hr (100cfm) of clean filtered air.
Can the Bioquell CBRN system be used for all vehicles?
The Bioquell CBRN system can be configured in a number of different ways so that it can be integrated into a range of different vehicle types from tracked to wheeled.
Can Bioquell provide over pressure systems only?
The system is capable of being adapted to provide over pressure or assisted breathing for crew face mask. It is also capable of being configured to provide a combination of both as necessary.
What cooling capability is available from Bioquell?
The Crew Cooling and Environmental Control Systems provided by Bioquell are configured to suit the customer or end user’s individual requirements and can range from 5 to 10kW as required.
Can the Bioquell Environmental Control System be used for all vehicles?
The Bioquell system uses, where possible, COTS and MOTS parts and can be designed and configured to be integrated into most vehicles.
