Decontamination Units, Chemical Neutralization, Microemulsion
Definition : Decontamination units that generate and deliver calcium hypochlorite (e.g., C8 decontaminant) and/or toluene-based emulsions for neutralization of chemical agents, including mustard (H/HD agent), and nerve agents such as VX and the G series (e.g., tabun [GA], sarin [GB]), and/or biological agents on the surface of vehicles and outdoor equipment. These units are typically powered devices that include a mixer/applicator, which produces a continuous online emulsion; hoses; and other accessories. Emulsion-application decontamination units are used to provide noncorrosive decontamination of ambulances and other vehicles and outdoor equipment. They are also used to decontaminate the exterior of ships and aircraft.
