Bioquell Defense CBRN filtration solutions incorporate the NATO Standard No 1 Composite Filter that is designed to conform to the performance specification detailed in the NATO Triptych AC/225 (Panel VII) D251 and also, more recently, AEP 54. Designed to filter known chemical and biological warfare agents, as well as many Toxic Industrial Chemical (TICs), this robust filter is in service with many different Armed Forces worldwide.
Other filters such as the US M48 filter can also be incorporated into Bioquell Defense CBRN filtration solutions.
Customers currently utilising the NATO standard No 1 Composite Filter include UK MoD, Malaysian Armed Forces, Kuwaiti Armed Forces, Royal Saudi Land Forces, Lithuanian Army and United Arab Emirates.
When incorporated within a Bioquell Defense CBRN Filtration unit, the CBRN filter provides either full over pressure collective protection, filtered air for a face mask system or a combination of over pressure and face mask.
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?
