The Solo Rescue Decon Washer was developed in close cooperation with the Swedish Rescue Services and the organization Healthy Firefighters to meet the needs for cleaning contaminated equipment in the best way possible. The goal was to develop a healthier way to decontaminate protective gear and help firefighters fight cancer.
The DeconFilter™ Pro S is focused on extracting and reducing the amount of carcinogenic PAH particles from the Solo Rescue wastewater. It was developed to work seamlessly with the Solo Rescue Decon Washer and it fits perfectly on the right side of the machine.
Lab tests have showed that the DeconFilter™ Pro S was able to reduce the amount of PAH M and PAH H compounds (both of whom are currently being classified as carcinogenic by the Swedish EPA) in the waste water by up to 98 %, or below detection level.
We were thoroughly impressed by the machine’s ease of operation, efficiency and performance. The number of contaminants that were removed from the SCBAs that had previously been cleaned by hand was astonishing. Gary Robertson, Captain at Kananaskis Emergency Services in Alberta, Canada.
