Threats from nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attack are constantly evolving. NBC protection is becoming a key element of personnel protection and the requirements are significantly different than those for conventional weapons. A high efficiency filter, or HEPA, will trap biological contaminants, but cannot remove mustard gas, chlorine gas, or other chemical warfare agents. To remove these contaminants, Twin Filter uses special chemical adsorbents. Complete protection requires multiple stages of filtration.
Twin Filter offers systems for building protection as well as shelter in place systems. The building protection offers air filtration systems capable of mitigating possible external or internal releases of nuclear, biological and chemocal (NBC) warfare agents. The systems are designed to protect a building's most vulnerable points of entry, the outside air intakes and internal locations accesible to the public.
Intakes lokated at or near ground level are the most accessible to the public and the most vulnerable points of entry in the event of an external release of NBC warfare agents.Twin Filter offers systems that can be used to filter outside intake air and pressurize the protected space.
Hazardous materials can be carried into a building by people, in the delivery of mail, supplies and equipment. Vulnerable locations inside the buidling include mailrooms, loading docks, entry lobbies, and mechanical rooms. Twin Filter systems are designed to continuously filter and recirculate air inside these areas.
The Twin Filter systems can also be used for sheltering in place. For this application, we offer a Shelter In Place (SIP) System, a recirculating air filtration unit designed to sit inside the protective space and purify the air of biological and chemical contaminants. The SIP system is freestanding and mounted on casters to provide mobility.
