Tutex supplies Air-Digger System for IED removal

It has been a busy few weeks at Tutex leading up to our liaison in Paris this week with American specialists Vanair and French Engineering company, SERA Ingenierie.

We have supplied a Vanair Air-Digger System to SERA Ingenierie, which has been fitted onto an A1 Buffalo on behalf of the French military. The purpose of the new System is to safely remove IEDs, by using compressed air to excavate any areas of land where IEDs could be present. It delivers 200cfm at 200psi to a nozzle on an interrogation arm, making the process much safer and more efficient. Utilising an underdeck compressor, it is driven by the transmission of the Buffalo itself.

We are excited and proud to have been involved in a project which will save the lives of soldiers and civilians alike.
