Advanced Small-Room Chemical and Biological Filtration System
Special and high-profile locations require the capability to provide shelter-in-place in a small room in the event of a chemical or biological incident where evacuation is not the desired course of action. HBM Associates, LLC designed an advanced small-room chemical and biological filtration system that will be installed in the designated safe room of critical facilities and is intended for emergency use. The Advanced Small-Room Chemical and Biological Filtration System (AFS) is capable of operating in tandem with existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems or as a stand-alone system to provide protection against external or internal building airborne chemical or biological agents. The AFS takes outside and/or building recirculated air, filters it through a particulate and chemical adsorber filter, and pressurizes the space to at least five pascals above ambient pressure. AFS is designed as an innocuous, tamper resistant, portable unit capable of being rapidly installed into existing structures and systems. AFS is a true plug and play system ready to operate with the activation of one switch to provide up to six hours of continuous protection against chemical and biological agents. AFS supports a wide range of military, Department of Homeland Security, and civilian operations to protect personnel and key facilities from chemical and biological agents and thus improving operational capabilities.
