COMPRESSED AIR CONNECTION (OPTIONAL):
If the ERC is connected to the operation’s compressed air supply system, air can be supplied for an indefinite period of time. A high-quality air filtration system filters out any oil, water, odor or organic compounds in the air before it is released into the chamber. A silencer is used to reduce noise levels. Pressure relief valves are installed to maintain a positive
<br>internal pressure while continuously purging the chamber of human exhaled carbon dioxide.
BREATHABLE AIR SYSTEM:
The onboard Breathing Air System, standard in all chambers, consists of high purity oxygen
cylinders and an active carbon dioxide scrubber. The scrubber can be designed to meet any regulatory CO2 standards for exposure (typically 5000 to 10000ppm). The scrubber draws power from the chamber’s power source - either the main power line or an onboard battery backup.
The scrubber utilizes sealed replaceable cartridges, factory filled with a medical grade granular soda lime material. A special filter fabric keeps any particles from circulating inside the chamber. The rectangular shape of the cartridges stack and pack efficiently beneath the seats.
The cartridges are changed periodically based on the number of occupants and the maximum allowable level of CO2. The used cartridges are neatly placed back under the seats and no open handling or exposure to soda lime takes place.
Strata includes a proprietary timer on the scrubber that calculates and audibly alarms to indicate it is time to change the cartridges. Simply dial in the number of people in the chamber.
