Baltimore-based CINTEC America has introduced the Blastec Mini Isolator Bin, a blast mitigation tool that is ideal for use at airports, banks, post offices, and office buildings. The self-inflating product is designed to isolate suspicious packages and luggage, and can be easily and readily deployed to provide temporary blast mitigation and fragment retention. It can be custom-designed for a spectrum of blast applications. Made from an internally reinforced waterproof fabric, it can be deployed manually or robotically using appropriate bomb-disposal equipment. To deploy, the bin is first filled with air for stability, and then water through a standard fire hose, the water displacing the air through a pressure relief valve. The lightweight, compact unit can be adjusted in size to meet customer requirements.
