The DeconFilter™ Pro S is focused on extracting and reducing the amount of carcinogenic PAH particles in the Solo Rescue wastewater. During tests at a fire department and firefighter training facility in southern Sweden, wastewater samples were taken from the Solo Rescue Decon Washer after a number of training exercises and rescue operations, and were then sent to an external third-party laboratory for testing. These lab tests 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 wastewater by up to 98 %, or below detection level*.
To achieve these results, we use a multistage custom filtration, including lint filter, particle filters and active carbon filter. This allows us to catch particles of various types and sizes and prevent them from being flushed down the drain.
