Decontamination unit beats an old carpet

MORE effective than a disinfectant soaked mat, says Mudblaster Wheelwashers, is the companys new portable decontamination unit which is designed to spray the wheels and undersides of vehicles with disinfectant.

Requiring a single-phase power supply – a generator can be used for remote locations – a sensor picks up the presence of a vehicle and starts spraying for a pre-set period of time. Concentrated disinfectant is metered automatically into the waterline.

Mudblaster, which is based in Co Down, Northern Ireland, says the unit can be employed at all types of sites where decontamination is required. Price is from £4750, depending specification. &#42
