Broco Door Blower hydraulic/pneumatic door opener packs the power of explosives without the liability. Over 10 tons of force to implode the door or frame. Virtually silent until the door/lock breaks.
Hydraulic jamb spreader supports the steel reinforced high pressure bag. Compressed air from a small cylinder powers the dynamic component. Broco Blower system includes: welded steel Blower hydraulic frame, bag, lightweight aluminum hydraulic pump, compact compressed air cylinder, regulator, hoses and accessories.
Advantages of the Broco Blower are speed of implementation- one man holds the device against the door on the lock side while another operates the manual hydraulic pump to lock it in place. Once the spreader expands to support itself the first operator steps back while the second works the pump a few more times to set the tool securely in the door frame. This only takes a few seconds.
With the entry team in position, the second operator then cracks open the air cylinder valve (1/4 turn) causing the high pressure bag to inflate putting pressure against the door until it bursts inward. Hydraulic pressure is released and the Blower cleared from the entry point. The only noise is from the door/locks/jamb giving way as the breach is made.
The Broco Blower generates huge amounts of force defeating all types of inward opening doors. It is truly a dynamic breaching device. But teams and command structures do not need worry about the same liability or approval issues that surround explosive entries. And the Blower does away with overpressure concerns making it exceedingly appropriate for use in apartment hallways and other confined spaces.
