Chambers, Decontamination, High-Pressure Carbon Dioxide/Particulate

Definition : Decontamination chambers that employ high-pressure gas (typically carbon dioxide) for physical removal of chemical agents including mustard (H agent), nerve agents such as VX and the G series (e.g., tabun [GA], sarin [GB]), from the surface of equipment. These chambers typically include a handgun-like device that delivers frozen carbon dioxide particles (i.e., dry-ice pellets) at supersonic speeds to clean the interior of sensitive equipment and a mobile stand (e.g., a table) that rotates the equipment around the dry-ice-particulate delivering device for full decontamination of all equipment surfaces. These chambers are used for decontamination of very sensitive devices.

The CO2 Snow Cleaning process removes micron and submicron particulates and hydrocarbon-based contamination. Carbon dioxide snow cleaning is nondestructive, nonabrasive, residue-free, and environmentally friendly - there is no chemical waste. The cleaning process is based upon the expansion of either liquid or gaseous carbon dioxide through an orifice.
