TECH PLUS has since 1988 specialised in the research, design, creation, installation and maintenance of hyperbaric oxygen treatment chambers, tunnel borer airlocks and hyperbaric chambers for animals, as well as in expert assessment and training in the use of this equipment.
TECH PLUS also offers hyperbaric chambers for lease and provides training for dedicated staff. Our company has operations both in France and abroad.
Technical achievements by European standards:
of the TECH PLUS hyberaric chamber
A hyperbaric chamber is a pressurised enclosure with a capacity for one or more persons, used for the purpose of medical treatment. There are two kinds of treatment chambers:
- Monoplace chambers, with a single compartment for a single patient, with the main chamber being accessible by medical personnel via a staff airlock.
- Multiplace chambers, with two or more compartments, enabling access of staff, patients and equipment while maintaining the pressure in the main enclosure.
Autonomous multiplaces and mobile hyperbaric unit
Military, professional and scuba diving sports exposes the diver at the risk of a decompression accident. The management of this type of accident is based on an early recompression and hyperbaric oxygenation, performed inside a hyperbaric chamber.
Hyperbaric chambers for military use
We provide the various branches of the military with hyperbaric chambers on the basis of the competency of French military experts, recognised in the area of regulatory instruction and standards in hyperbaric medicine.
The hyperbaric treatments are intended for:
mobile hyperbaric chambers
Housed within a 20-foot container, the hyperbaric chamber for lease is a mobile facility for treating medical issues related to diving.
Pressure: 5 bars
Pressure increases restricted by a safety valve on the main chamber.
— Manipulation by means of 4 jacking points arranged on the top of the 20-feet container.
— The fire protection system requires flooding the chamber with water, at a pressure higher than that inside the chamber. The water can be pumped either into the main chamber or into the airlock.
— Storage of gases in B50 cylinders with a capacity of 10 m3 / 200 bars: Air, Oxygen, Heliox or Nitrox.
Tunnel borer airlocks
A tunnel borer is a civil engineering machine used to drill tunnels or various galleries by digging through geological layers.
The soil obtained from digging into the ground is deposited between the area to be dug and the shield (generally 2 metres). It is extracted by a continuous flight auger which decompresses it, so that it can be removed from the already dug gallery.
The extracted soil is then replaced with compressed air.
A hyperbaric airlock, fitted to the shied, can be used to compress a team of hyperbaric chamber technicians. When the pressure equalises, these personnel can then enter the excavation area to inspect, change or repair the cutting wheel parts.
During this time interval, the chamber technicians are subjected to breathing compressed air. They must then exit the airlock while observing to decompression schedules.
In manufacturing a tunnel borer airlock, TECH PLUS commissions inspection bodies to check the design briefs and perform a validation of the hydraulic tests, in compliance with European directive 97/23 CE.
The hyperbaric airlocks for tunnel borers comply with the CE 12110 European standard and the EN 13445 international standard.
Pressure tests, by immersion.
The tests for cables and wiring accessories used for electrical cabling, in accordance with the EN 33-226 standard in Appendix 7, involve setting up a hyperbaric chamber to simulate hydraulic pressure.
Such equipment can be constructed according to specifications for the tests to be conducted by the client.
Main principles that apply to a hyperbaric chamber:
2. Closure of each end of the tube by doors activated by quick-closing clamps. These doors include a flange on which are placed glands for threading one or more cables, between 1 and 12 for example, depending on their size.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical technology used in human as well as animal (mammalian) medicine, particularly for horses.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can serve both as a primary treatment or a complement to conventional therapy, and is effective in treating serious injuries as well as curing many chronic disorders.
The animal is placed in an airtight enclosure (a hyperbaric room or chamber), and subjected to various levels of pressure, up to 15 times the normal pressure.
Increasing the atmospheric pressure in this chamber:
TECH PLUS has a Quality Assurance system, ISO 9001 and EN 46001 certifications as well as medical device CE Medical marking for medical gas systems (European Directive n° 93 / 42).
TECH PLUS has a supervisory staff and a team of experienced, professional technicians at its facilities in various civilian and military hospitals and private clinics. The company carries out power disconnections for separating or connecting primary power distribution networks for critical care departments such as: resuscitation, intensive care and operating theatres and carries out preventive and corrective maintenance.
Specific procedures and instructions for testing and trials during or on completion of system installations, have been established. The equipment installed has CE marking.
Our “Medical Gases” operations can be broken down into several sections:
The installation of medical gas conduits is carried out by TECH PLUS in compliance with the prevailing regulations. Supplies are acquired, in keeping with ISO standards, from selected suppliers, guaranteeing compliance with the standards for hard-drawn copper rods or annealed copper coils; TECH PLUS also carries out degreasing of the coils and rods.
On site, these rods and coils are delivered stoppered for oxidising gases and other pressurised gases. Brazing is performed under nitrogen flow.
Additional services are considered and provided on request.
TECH PLUS offers annual services (in most cases) on:
On request, TECH PLUS carries out two types of system audits:
