Transportable ammunition destruction system 20

EOD Solutions Ltd in conjunction with CALDO engineering have developed the Transportable Ammunition Destruction System (TRADS) to destroy small arms ammunition (SAA) in an environmentally responsible manner.

Efficient and ethically sound

The TRADS 20 is a stand-alone system, requiring no infrastructure as electrical power and compressed air are built into the system. It can be positioned on site and can be working within 36 hours, requiring only diesel fuel to begin operations. TRADS 20 is the ideal system for disposing of disbursed stockpiled SAA at an affordable cost at a rate of one-and-a-half tonnes per day.

The system is manufactured into two ISO shipping frames for ease of movement, with one enclosed container for the ancillaries. All container frames and boxes are certified for sea and air shipment, which also allows for ease of storage and movement by the client. The system is built to allow the operators ease of access for routine maintenance and the system is manufactured to ensure the operation by two personnel.

Recent improvements allow the system to clean the gases more efficiently to comply with the EU 2007 Directive as well as the more stringent regulations in the USA and Australia.

Field tested for reliability

EOD Solutions Ltd has used the TRADS 20 system in Afghanistan, for which it was specifically built, where it withstood the rigors of the task and the weather. The system is competitively priced and ideal for low quantity applications.
