Solo Rescue PPE washing machine

Decontamination of personal protection equipment (PPE) after use is vital. During use, clothing and respiratory PPE have been directly exposed to hazardous substances. As a result, contaminants can remain on the exterior. In effect, the removal, handling and cleaning of soiled equipment can be as dangerous as the work itself.

Effective decontamination procedures can become an even greater challenge in workplaces where respirators and other safety equipment are used in large numbers. Even a single mask can take a long time to clean.

Solo Rescue is a washing machine for personal protection equipment. It is used for the fast and efficient decontamination of large quantities of breathing apparatuses, respirators, helmets, gloves, boots and other personal protection equipment. The washer comprises an internal rotating basket where the equipment is subjected to effective cleaning from high-pressure nozzles.

The baskets come in various configurations for different safety gear. As one basket is cleaned and lifted out, another is loaded for immediate decontamination.

The system has two wash cycles and is claimed to work up to 10 times faster than manual decontamination. Around 20 BA sets (masks and cylinders) can be cleaned in an hour. Boots, gloves and helmets take only two minutes in the washer.
