Smoke/Dust Type: Diesel Engine Exhaust
Location: Colorado, Utah, New Mexico
Ventilation Equipment Solution Selection: Plymovent Magnetic Grabber Retrofit Package
Application Solution: Department utilized an electromagnetic tailpipe connection with a sliding hose and track. A 100% tailpipe connection could not be achieved due to a hood that was larger than the tailpipe. The department did not want a hose support connected to the side of a vehicle.
The Plymovent earth magnet provided a 100% tail pipe seal and did not require a connection to the body of an engine or ambulance.
Improved firefighter safety resulted from reduced exposures to airborne contaminants from engine operation and maintenance was simplified.
