Ventilation systems and local extraction systems in fire stations

The exhaust fumes seriously harm the firemen’s health!

The diesel engine vehicles are preferred for private needs as well as for special transport all over the world. Diesel engines operating in each fire station produce exhaust fumes during ignition and heating of fire and emergency vehicles, on leaving the station and on their return.

Diesel exhaust is a mix of particles and gases containing a lot of hazardous substances. Many of them are carcinogenic (benzene, arsenic, formaldehyde). Exhaust fumes also contain other harmful substances such as nitrogen oxides. In a long term the influence of these fumes is as harmful as the tobacco smoke. The diesel exhaust spread in the places where the firemen are eating, sleeping or working also it is absorbed in their clothes.

The only effective method: capturing and suction directly from tailpipes.

You can see how Magna system works in the video below.

The MAGNARAIL systems are specially designed for repeated long-term use in loaded conditions. One rail system can Serves up to 4 vehicles at a time. Magna systems are offered For vehicles with either High level or Low level tail pipes.
In the classic form, when activated, the electro-magnet attaches to an anchor plate on the vehicle, holding the hose on to the vehicle and the nozzle firmly on to the tail pipe.
In the pneumatic version, when activated, the air chambers expand and attach the nozzle firmly onto the tail pipe. PTS is suitable for stations with high demands regarding environmental cleanliness and safety and is perfect for stations where vehicles varies from time to time.
When the vehicle is leaving the station its maximum speed can be up to 25km/h. One rail can be 30m long and can be applied in places where the vehicles always leave through one exit and return through opposite entrance. If several rails use one fan, TANGRA and Nederman offer solution for its speed regulation in order to achieve the energy savings up to 28%.
