Title (EN) AN INTEGRATED DECONTAMINATION/AERATION SYSTEM FOR VEHICLES
(FR) SYSTEME INTEGRE DE DECONTAMINATION/D'AERATION POUR DES VEHICULES
Abstract:
(EN) An integrated duct system is utilized to admit an antimicrobial vapor into a vehicle to decontaminate the contents and surfaces of the vehicle and subsequently to remove the vapor. The ducts comprise an air conditioning and/or heating duct (20), a decontamination duct (30) for admitting an antimicrobial vapor, an auxiliary circulation duct (50) for diffusing the vapor throughout the vehicle, and an aeration duct (70) for removing the vapor from the vehicle, as well as a catalytic converter (66) for detoxifying the antimicrobial vapor before removal. The integrated decontamination system is suitable for the chemical or biological decontamination of vehicles, provides enhanced vapor delivery and distribution on a rapid basis and also provides for rapid aeration for removing the antimicrobial vapor.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de conduits intégré qui sert à faire pénétrer une vapeur antimicrobienne dans un véhicule pour décontaminer le contenu et les surfaces du véhicule, et à extraire la vapeur par la suite. Les conduits comprennent un conduit de conditionnement et/ou de chauffage d'air, un conduit de décontamination pour faire pénétrer une vapeur antimicrobienne, un conduit de circulation auxiliaire pour diffuser la vapeur dans le véhicule, un conduit d'aération pour extraire la vapeur du véhicule, ainsi qu'un convertisseur catalytique pour détoxiquer la vapeur antimicrobienne avant son extraction. Ce système de décontamination intégré sert à la décontamination chimique ou biologique de véhicules, il permet une fourniture et une distribution de vapeur améliorées et rapides ainsi qu'une aération rapide pour extraire la vapeur antimicrobienne.
