ABSTRACT: Hexavalent Chromium and other Hazardous Materials (HM) that are prevalent in the Bead Blasting Profession pose a hazard to those directly working in the environment as well as those working around the environment. There is a two stage problem at hand with the USAF and in several other industries working with similar applications: the containment of the HM during operations and the containment of HM after operations. Currently the USAF is looking towards R & D for a new Blast Cleaning Room (BCR) and for ways to keep contamination from spreading outside the BCRs. Immediate Response Technologies (IRT) wants to develop a Rapid Deployable, Soft Wall Anteroom/Decontamination System that would be under negative pressure utilizing a HEPA filtration system to aid the operators in safe exit and equipment doffing after completing their task at hand in the BCR. This system would solve the problem at hand of keeping HM material from migrating from the BCR to other facilities and areas. IRT would leverage off of its field proven and widely accepted shelter design history to come up with an ideal solution for mission completion and operator removal/decontamination while limiting HM migration. BENEFIT: Post paint blasting or decontamination and isolation to prevent the spread of hazardous material throughout various industries that perform paint removal opertations.
