Merlin® Handcart

The Merlin represents a new standard for portable, self-contained CAFS. Its patented binary tank configuration, removable control module and drafting capability are just a few of the distinctive characteristics that set the Merlin apart from other emergency response tools. This system provides rapid deployment capabilities and ease of operation, and can be operated as a fully independent unit or in conjunction with auxiliary power sources and bulk agent storage.

The Merlin is an ideal portable rapid response tool that can be used with multiple part decontamination formulas such as EasyDECON® DF200 or batch-mixed formulas for fire suppression, exposure protection, hazmat cleanup and vapor suppression. Compact size, versatile functionality and dependability combine to make it the perfect choice in CAFS.
