The following rationale is submitted for integration of exothermic cutting systems into the basic inventory...
Broco’s Recovery & Rescue torch is the most recent evolution of the prime cut industrial backpacked torch. It meets the requirements of Urban Search And Rescue teams for both confined space and extended cutting operations. Torch is setup with 5ft hose and cable. Included in the kit is the 25ft heavy rescue extension set. Attach the quick connect battery clamps to utilise a standard auto type 12V battery; bring up a shop-sized oxygen cylinder and it is ready to do a lot of heavy cutting.
PC/A-5V2HR also includes a 16in rod extender for extra reach (or standoff) and a medical oxygen adapter so D&E cylinders with the post valves can be used with the torch. Everything fits in a rugged storage case (included).
This kit is suitable for use on rescue trucks, wreckers and for recovery applications. A Nato Slave plug is available to operate the PC/A-5V2HR directly from a military vehicle’s battery system.
