System Description

The DECON is a stand alone system that is used to VHP decontaminate a RTP canister using a standard VHP gas generator and interconnecting hardware.

Multiple DECON systems can be connected off a single VHP generator for those applications requiring simultaneous canisters decontamination.

The DECON consists of a small, leak tight chamber onto which the canister to be decontaminated is connected. A clamping system assures a leak tight connection.

VHP gas is introduced into the system via a gas injection system and a mixing fan assure of proper gas distribution within the chamber and the canister.

The rear bulkhead of the enclosure features a manual mechanism that the operator operates to manipulate the canister door without entering the chamber.
