Transportable ammunition destruction system 40

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.

The TRADS 40 is a stand-alone system, requiring no local infrastructure other than a flat area on which to place the system that will destroy all types of small arms ammunition up to and including 14.5mm. The system is not designed for high explosive rounds.

Refining the process for safe and responsible disposal

Ammunition is fed at a controlled rate from ground level using a conveyor system to feed the rounds into the rotating cylinder where they are heated. Once the rounds ignite, they drop out into a scrap receptacle. The gases are drawn off through an afterburner and ceramic filter before being released to the atmosphere.

The system is manufactured into three 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 three personnel.

Field tested for reliability

EOD Solutions Ltd has used the TRADS 40 system in Albania and in Afghanistan where it withstood the rigors of the task and the weather, which in some cases was extreme. The system is competitively priced with low cost running to make this system the best in its field.
