PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, has been selected by BAE Systems PLC to supply, in partnership with AMETEK, Inc., its chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) protection systems for the Terrier military vehicle.
Designed to be in service for decades, the Terrier incorporates the latest technology available. The Pall CBRN system protects vehicle occupants from all known chemical warfare agents.
Integrated within AMETEK’s environmental control system, the Pall CBRN protection system removes CBRN material from contaminated air. It is a self-regenerating “fit and forget” system offering full broadband protection against all known threats. By comparison, traditional carbon technology units are ineffective against some modern chemical agents known as ‘carbon breakers’ and are vulnerable to certain toxic industrial chemicals (TICs.)
The heart of Pall’s CBRN system is a regenerable pressure swing adsorption (PSA) unit that is immobilized to withstand the constant shocks and vibrations endured by military vehicles, thereby increasing the longevity of the system. The PSA technology has been successfully tested with live agents, TICs and TIMs (toxic industrial materials) at independent laboratories in the UK and USA.
"Being selected for this important project recognizes the work that Pall has done to develop the PSA technology to meet the specific CBRN requirements of a military vehicle platform," said Jim Western, president, Pall Aeropower.
