The purpose of this system
is to empty and decontaminate projectiles containing mustard and
nerve gas. The projectiles are cut open and the gas, (which is
in a powder form) is flushed out with water. The water is then
run through two reactors that neutralize the gas. The projectile
is then placed in an induction heater where it is heated to 1200
deg F. All exhaust fumes are filtered and then reheated in another
induction heater. The gases from the induction heater then pass
through two filter systems before they are released to atmosphere.
The Intel PC running Rsview software provides the interface
for all operators using with the system.
Rsview also handles all data logging, consisting of temperatures
and cycle times for each projectile.
