American Innovations, Inc. is pleased to introduce to the Military EOD and Civilian Bomb Squad community its new HD-5 Total Containment Vessel (TCV), also known as a Bomb Detonation Chamber or Bomb Transportation Chamber.
This repeat detonation TCV is on the cutting edge of today’s bomb disposal technology. It features a unitary solid-poured cast manganese alloy steel chamber body sealed by a solid steel door secured and sealed by four remotely operable hydraulic expanding interlocks.
The HD-5 chamber is designed to work seamlessly with most existing EOD robots or manually by a single operator when applicable. It can fit through most standard three-foot (91.4 cm) doorways. It can be easily transported to the scene of an incident or suspected device and even taken on most commercial freight elevators that will support its weight. Importantly, the HD-5 provides military and law enforcement personnel the benefits of both enhanced performance and safety benefits, while being significantly less costly than alternative systems, many of which are intended primarily for the transport of suspicious packages, and not their actual destruction by controlled detonation.
Why is the HD-5 superior? Its manganese alloy steel chamber becomes harder and tougher with every detonation, thus maintaining the chamber’s integrity in repeated use. Its compact size and relatively lighter weight means increased mobility and faster deployment than the competition. This means significant savings both in the cost of initial purchase and subsequent post-detonation maintenance, because the HD-5 is designed to be tough enough to be re-used again and again, detonation after detonation.
Our demonstration HD-5 blast chamber has been shot 41 times and is available for live fire demonstrations.
