A prototype portable smoke and gas removal unit was developed to clear the atmosphere of a sealed room after a fire. The unit utilizes a series of filters and chemical beds to remove particulate matter, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide within three hours to such a level that a man may work safely and comfortably. The unit is self-contained, with its own electric motor, blower, filters and chemical beds, all mounted on a portable platform truck with floor lock.
