Smoke/Dust Type: Diesel Engine Smoke and Fumes
Ventilation Equipment Solution Selection: (2) – Plymovent STRA-50, 50’ length straight exhaust rail including heavy-duty retractable balancer,
CFM/Static Pressure: 1,000 cfm @ 6.5” s.p.
Application Solution: Straight exhaust rail selected in order to meet vehicle size and distance between tailpipe and station door and for an under chassis tailpipe connection. The system starts and shuts down automatically when the vehicle leaves or returns to the station.
Tailpipe connection is provided by a magnetic “Grabber” nozzle that makes a positive seal to the tailpipe resulting in complete containment of smoke and fumes. Firefighters, adjacent day areas, or offices are isolated from engine exhausts.
This station was part of a larger, 21-station upgrade for the department.
