IDEX 2017: BlastGuard introduces new MTR Blast Mitigated Trash Receptacle
BlastGard International, Inc., the creator of blast mitigation products and services, is pleased to introduce its bomb mitigating Trash Receptacles at IDEX 2017. The Trash Receptacles, models MTR 91 and MTR 101, reduce the pressure from a very large charge from 60.47 PSI (100% fatal) to 7.5 PSI (eardrum damage) at ten feet.

BlastGard MTR’s address the many issues concerning bomb mitigation that have previously gone uncorrected. When a blast occurs in the highest standard receptacle available, the force exits through the mouth of the unit and rapidly reforms as a spherical blast wave of comparable power to that of an unconfined charge.

On the other hand, BlastGard incorporates protective, blast-mitigating components, which suppress 85% of the original force. Furthermore, BlastGard MTR™ Trash Receptacles immediately extinguish the fireball and capture all fragments.

Michael Gordon, CEO of BlastGard, said, “Bottom line, the products already on the market could do much more to safeguard the people and property they claim to protect. Under extensive testing, BlastGard’s MTR units suppress the force of a very large charge, even when it is placed against the vulnerable sidewall weld seam. The units dramatically reduce blast pressures, instantly extinguish the fireball within 5 milliseconds, all while maintaining complete structural integrity. We are also applying this technology to many other sectors and industries that require blast mitigation protection including gear for first responders, aviation, military personnel and machinery, oil pipelines, and blast walls for buildings and embassies to limit the hazards of an explosion.”
