The Bioquell Defense Integrated Cyclone CBRN filtration system offers an affordable and reliable low life cycle cost solution, utilizing COTS and MOTS parts, for a range of military applications. The system can be configured to provide either full over pressure collective protection, filtered air for a face mask system, or a combination of over pressure and face mask. It incorporates the standard NATO No 1 Composite 170m3/hr filter and can also be configured to incorporate other composite CBRN filters such as the US M48 100 cfm filter.
Platforms currently utilising Bioquell Defense CBRN filtration systems include BAE Systems Challenger 2 and CVRT, FNSS ACV 300 / 350 and M113 upgrade, FPI Cougar for MRAP, SISU Auto 8 x 8 and URO TT Vamtac.
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.
