CryoRain LAV Fire-Fighter Vehicle Series IV
- Apr. 28, 2011 - WARNER ROBINS, Ga. --
--Warner Robins, GA--On April 19, 2011, CBS News reported that officials in Texas anticipated a month long period of fire fighting efforts would be required in the nine FEMA Wild Land Fire Zones threatening the suburbs of Fort Worth and surrounding areas. Estimates by FEMA project that as much as 80% of the land areas in Texas will be impacted by the wildfires if left unchecked. With that bleak forecast, a team of independent scientists has proposed deployment of a unique patented nitrogen gas release system, called ‘CryoRain’
that can snuff the wildfires within seconds. The technology, called, ‘CryoRain’
, uses a process that enables ‘raining’ of liquefied Nitrogen, N2, through a specially-designed sieve appliance that enables the liquid nitrogen to change phase into a pure form of Nitrogen gas that completely removes oxygen from any environment. Without oxygen as the catalyst, the prospect of explosions and fires is completely eliminated, leaving fires extinguished within seconds. The team is led by NASA-Scholar and Scientist Dr. Joseph A. Resnick, Inventor of Stealth Radex, along with Dr. Denyse DuBrucq, Inventor of CryoRain Technology, Professor Ron Stewart, Inventor of ORIE technology and Global Logistics Officer for Special Transport, Joy Mann-Simmons.
In a statement released from CryoRain Inc.’s Warner Robins, GA advanced staging facility, Dr. Resnick said, “Dr. DuBrucq has been in direct communication with the Command Operations Center at the USDA’s Forest Service National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, ID and has offered to assist the Command Op’s Center in terms of making the CryoRain technology available, immediately”
. Dr. Resnick said that he has outreached toTexas Governor Rick Perry, to FEMA and DHS officials and responses to the team’s offer to assist are pending.
Dr. DuBrucq said, “Liquid Nitrogen is the fourth coldest liquid with a temperature of approximately -195.8 degrees Celsius. It looks like water in appearance but runs heavy, like Mercury when allowed to ‘flow‘ freely. When the liquid Nitrogen is deployed via a spaced-hole sieve through a ’raining process’, this results in immediate evaporation into a cryogenically cold, pure, inert, heavy Nitrogen gas in a cloud - rather a reverse rain effect". When asked how this kind of release could impact the raging wildfires, Dr. Resnick stated, “A cloud of pure Nitrogen will counter the inferno and temperatures as this hits the fire line. Then, the heavy gas continues extinguishing the fire as the cloud expands from 230 times the volume of Liquid Nitrogen when cold, to 250 times when at ambient or room temperature, and this process proceeds to over 600 times when encountering the heat and embers of the inferno. The net result is immediate and complete snuffing of the fire and cooling of anything that has been burned".
The team’s Director of Special Transport and Logistics, Joy Mann Simmons, said, “Logistically-
speaking, Nitrogen is much less expensive to transport and use than water and chemicals. Research shows that use of water and chemicals as fire response tools have a ‘one pass chance’ at effectively dousing the fire, especially when dropped from above from aircraft, for example. When water and chemicals are dropped, the portion of the emulsion that does not contact the actual burn area is left useless on the ground in the form of messy pools or puddles. With the CryoRain Nitrogen application, the portion of the cloud that does not get used in extinguishing the fire dissipates into the atmosphere that is already 78% Nitrogen. It readily mixes with a 5 MPH cutting wind and returns to nature and there's no additional mess or chemicals left behind."
