SaferWorld International ́s Mobile Demil System is designed for easy deployment to storage sites for the destruction of weapons and ammunition.
All units are built in standard sea containers, except for the Ammunition Dismantling Unit (MESC-10) which is built for a flatbed trailer. Therefore, the system is easy to transport and take into operation where it is most needed.
The Ammunition Dismantling Unit (MESC-10) is a Mobile Explosion Suppression Chamber that enables safe dismantling of heavy caliber ammunition. It will protect the surrounding area from the effects of any explosion equivalent to 10 kg TNT, 7.5 kg C4 or ammunition up to caliber 155 mm.
Use the Ammunition Dismantling Unit to cut heavy caliber ammunition into smaller pieces before destruction in the Ammunition Destruction Unit. The band-saw is equipped with water cooling for increased performance.
The unit weighs around 25 tons and can be moved to site on a flatbed trailer.
The Ammunition Destruction Unit (ADU) is a container unit for heat destruction of small arm ammunition and other explosives. The ADU provides efficient, secure and environmentally friendly destruction on site.
The ammunition loaded into the ADU is destroyed at 500°C in a Hot Destruction Chamber that is designed to withstand explosions and propelling ammunition or fragments. Gases from the destruction chamber are filtered and treated to prevent air pollution or inhalation of hazardous substances.
The ammunition is fed into the destruction system from the loading room. Feeding is done batch-wise at intervals that depends on the type and caliber of ammunition that you want to destroy. A typical interval is 5 minutes. Feeding can be done with packed or unpacked material.
The Hot Destruction Chamber maintains a temperature of 500°C. Once the ammunition is loaded into the chamber, the heat will cause it to burn or explode. The destruction chamber is designed to withstand and contain the effects of continuous explosions from ammunition as well as other explosives.
The ADU relies on an electrical supply to produce the heat required in the destruction chamber.
When the destruction chamber is filled to approximately 60 percent, it is time to empty the content. Let the scrap cool down in the scrap tray.
The scrap metal can then be separated from the ashes and sold for recycling.
To prevent pollution and health hazards, dust and gases from the destruction chamber are collected, filtered or treated with additives.
The Weapon Destruction System, WDS, is a mobile container-sized unit for destruction of weapons. Using a mobile solution, unnecessary transport of weapons can be avoided. Destruction teams can be allocated timely and without delay to any location accessible by car.
The WDS is built in a 20 ft or 40 ft sea container. The equipment is designed for destruction of small arm weapons such as pistols, guns and rifles.
The main part of the weapon is disfigured in a metal shredder. Some parts might need to be destroyed by cutting and for that reason a band saw is included.
Typical capacity of the plant is 60 rifles per hour, depending on size and type of weapon.
The container is equipped with lights and air condition in order to provide good working environment.
WDS-20 is designed as a standard 20 feet container unit for easy relocation by truck.
The Utility Module contains everything one need to support the operation of the Mobile Demil System at a location where standard infrastructure is not available.
