Cancer is the second leading cause of death among firefighters. Toxins and diesel fumes from idling apparatus are one of the hazards the fire service faces that can be remedied with Plymovent's Exhaust Capture and Removal System.
Plymovent has two different types of systems - the Magnetic Grabber® and Pneumatic Grabber®. "Whether it's a magnetic system or a pneumatic system, we seal down a tail pipe to capture the exhaust," stated Steven Connallon, National Sales Manager with the Plymovent Corporation.
The Pneumatic Grabber® has been on the market for more than 20 years and uses Kevlar and Nomex to guarantee 100% capture of gases and particulates. The Magnetic Grabber's® angle face matches up with the conical adapter on the fire engine. Magnets are strategically positioned to ensure a good seal and the rubber safety cover protects the vehicle and its surroundings.
"It's just a matter of putting it on the tailpipe - a simple click and seal," explained Connallon. The click ensures it is attached correctly and that it will be automatically disconnected when the apparatus leaves the station. Both systems evacuate diesel exhaust out of buildings through a variety of fans and UL certified control equipment.
Connallon claimed that Plymovent has installed units anywhere from a single bay facility to up to 20 to 30 vehicles in one facility. Plymovent offers back-in systems, drive-through systems and vertical exhaust systems, which all qualify for FEMA Assistance to Firefighter Grants (AFG) under "Modifications to Facilities".
Plymovent has installed more than 50,000 source capture systems at many different companies around the world.
