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?
