deFcon®-P mobile complete system
The deFcon®-P-skin-procedure features:
· Very good skin compatibility
· Tested and allowed deFcon®-additives
· High effectiveness
· Possibility to shower a lot of persons due to
automatical runs (max. shower time per person
3 minutes, therefore it is possible to shower 20
persons per hour with a water consumption of
approx. 160 - 200 l/h)
· Fastest availability
· Easy handling
· Low water requirements
· Depressurised and safe output of the foam
Within the scope of averting a danger, the protec-
tion of the civil population is very important.
Until this day there is a great backlog demand
especially within the field of decontamination.
Previous procedures need large quantities of water
or additives, respectively whose effectiveness is not
known or proven.
The completely new deFcon®-P persons decon-
tamination procedure had been developed by
Gimaex-Schmitz for civil and military users.
