Explosive Containment Vessels Provide Protection Against Blast and Fragmentation

May 23 2014

Military EOD and Police Bomb Squads require blast management technologies that can withstand various explosive threats – small or big, conventional or non-convectional. That’s where the unique products available at Mistral Security, Inc. come into play.

For years, Mistral Security has been serving the Department of Defense, Law Enforcement and Public safety communities with a series of technologies that are proven to safely contain, store, transport or protect explosives, including:

The Fully Confined Golan Series, a group of stationary and mobile explosive containment vessels that provide protection against blast and fragmentation. Each container has been extensively tested by government authorities and/or independent laboratories and several models are approved by the U.S. Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB).

 How does the Golan product line provide protection against blast and fragmentation?

Golan 0.03 - The Golan 0.03 type container offers an in-house storage and transportation of explosives and blasting caps. The Golan 0.03 container confines the blast effect of an explosion of up to 30 gram TNT charges or equivalent, located anywhere in the inner storage area.

Golan 3 - The Golan 3 explosive containment vessel is designed to safely remove or store large suspect pieces of luggage and to withstand the blast and fragmentation effects of accidental explosions of up to 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) of TNT charges or equivalent. The Golan 3 is ideal for airport and public safety applications.

Golan 10 - The Golan 10 explosive containment vessel offers an in-house storage location of explosives and small caliber ammunition. The vessel also serves as a solution to store large suspicious objects. The Golan 10 is designed and approved by the DDESB to store explosive materials up to 10 kg (23 lbs.) of Net Explosive Weight (NEW).

Golan 15 - The Golan 15 explosive containment vessel offers a convenient and cost-effective solution for an in-house storage location of explosives and small caliber ammunition. As well as, a solution to store large suspicious objects. Golan 15 is designed and approved by DDESB to store explosive materials up to 15 kg (33 lbs.) of Net Explosive Weight (NEW).

Golan 25/45 - The Golan 25 and 45 explosive containment vessels offer a convenient and cost-effective solution for an in-house storage location of explosives and small caliber ammunition as well as, a solution to store large suspicious objects. The Golan 25 and 45 are designed and approved by DDESB to store explosive materials up to 25 (55 lbs.) and 45 kg (100 lbs.) (respectively) of Net Explosive Weight (NEW).

The ARC Series, a line of fully confined EOD explosive containment vessels, provide protection against blast and fragmentation with repeated detonation capability. Some models are gas-tight and are capable of containing biological/chemical explosive threats.

How do the ARC Series products provide full protection against blast and fragmentation?

ARC-5GT - The ARC-5GT containment vessel contains explosions of up to 5 kg (11 lbs.) of TNT equivalent and is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB) with a Gas-Tight capability of up to 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs.) of TNT equivalent. The ARC-5GT withstands repeated detonations, can be operated by a remote control, robot, or manually. The vessel is provided with an air sampling capability and is available with a trailer.

ARC-8GT - The ARC-8GT vessel contains repeated blast effects of up to 8 kg (17.64 lbs.) of TNT equivalent. The Gas-Tight feature of the ARC- 8GT allows responding EOD units to mitigate Weapons of Mass Destruction that might contain radiological, chemical or biological agents. The vessel is equipped with an air sampling system. The ARC-8GT is Gas-Tight to the full explosive capacity of the vessel.

ARC-10GT - The ARC-10GT detonation chamber contains blast effects of up to 10 kg (22 lbs.) of TNT equivalent. The ARC10-GT is DDESB-approved with a Gas-Tight capability of up to 8 kg (17.64 lbs.) of TNT equivalent or 6 kg (13.22 lbs.) of C4. The Gas-Tight feature of the ARC-10GT allows responding EOD units to mitigate Weapons of Mass Destruction that might contain radiological, chemical or biological agents. The vessel is equipped with an air sampling system. The ARC-10GT is Gas-Tight to the full explosive capacity of the vessel.
