Sliding Balancer Track Engine Ventilation

Sliding Balancer Track Engine Ventilation

Application: Sliding Balancer Track for Fire Station Engines.

Smoke/Dust Type: Diesel smoke and fumes from engine exhausts.

Location: Utah.

Ventilation Equipment Solution Selection: (8)- Plymovent SBTA-20 Sliding Balancer Tracks, 20 ft. length, each includes 500-degree high-temperature flex hose, heavy duty retractable balancer, sensors, electrical control panel and pneumatic “Grabber” nozzle.

(1) – Plymovent Model 745-60 Blower, 10 hp

CFM/Static Pressure: 4,000 cfm @ 7″ s.p.

Application Solution: Plymovent SBT units with grabber nozzle tail pipe connections provide a positive tail pipe connection. The “Grabber” nozzle follows the vehicle as it exits the station and releases at the door. This keeps harmful fumes from entering living quarters, contaminating the fire station, protects firefighter and visitor breathing zones while in the facility.

This project also included systems for one additional station.
