Description

Cadaver Cooling MERC System

THE TOTAL SOLUTION TO MASS FATALITY RESPONSE OR CADAVER COOLER OVERFLOW NEEDS
The MERC System® (Mortuary Enhanced Remains Cooling) was developed working closely with military, federal and state agencies, and private firms to address the need for cadaver cooling during a natural or man-made disaster resulting in mass fatalities. The MERC System is the first direct contact cooling system using liquid cooling technology to store human remains, and is the only human remains recovery system that is completely portable, scalable and interoperable. The MERC System is one of the most efficient human remains cooling solutions on the market, and in many cases eliminates the need for large, stationary coolers, or refrigeration units.

MORGUE REFRIGERATOR ALTERNATIVE & SUPPLEMENTATION
Temporary Body Storage Beyond Capacity
The portability and scalability of the MERC System make it the ideal solution where physical space or budgetary constraints require an alternative to traditional morgue refrigeration. Our TCS-24 unit provides the ability to increase cooling capacity by 1-24 bodies within minutes. With the direct contact cooling method, the MERC System can bring down the core temperature of the cadaver much quicker than the most air-driven cooling systems. It is completely portable and can be used to turn any room into a morgue.

MASS FATALITY & DISASTER RESPONSE
Mobile Morgue System
Previously, the only equipment available to solve the issue of mass fatality cold storage was oversized walk-in refrigerators or refrigerated tractor trailers. While both are functional solutions, they have drawbacks when responding to any mass fatality incident. Local morgues, hospitals, and funeral homes can quickly reach capacity in the midst of disaster relief. Preparedness for an emergency is critical to ensure that a community can respond quickly with all of the resources needed. The MERC System was developed as a portable unit, a mobile morgue, and can be moved to the location of any event and quickly deployed in a warehouse, gym, tent, parking lot, or roadway. It is the only portable morgue system available that does not use cold air to provide cooling for human remains. Instead, the MERC System uses patented liquid cooling technology and specially designed cooling pads. MERC Systems are low maintenance and can be fully operational in less than 15 minutes, providing cooling for up to 48 bodies.

The MERC System: How It Works
LIQUID-BASED | CLOSED-LOOP | DIRECT CONTACT COOLING
The patented MERC System® is a liquid-based cooling system, chilling the liquid down to an operator set temperature. The liquid is then transferred through a system manifold and out to the cooling pad. The liquid removes the heat from the body and returns the heated fluid to the system to be re-chilled and then is continually recirculated.

One ton cooling unit capable of cooling up to 24 sets of remains.

Product Details

In the event of a mass casualty event, there needs to be preparations in place to handle the fallout. The disaster morgue made by Mortuary Response is designed to handle these demands.

The MERC System® (Mortuary Enhanced Remains Cooling) was developed working closely with military, federal and state agencies, and private firms to address the need for cadaver cooling during a natural or man-made disaster resulting in mass fatalities.

MERC-TCS-24 Systems Disaster Portable Morgue Product Features:

• Patented Liquid Based Cooling

• Direct Contact Cooling

• Portable for Fast Response

Patented Liquid Based Cooling

MERC Systems utilize a specially designed, patented liquid-based cooling system. The operator is able to set the temperature of the liquid to allow for proper storage.

The MERC from Mortuary Response is the only disaster portable morgue unit which doesn't use cold air to provide cooling for human remains. Instead, the MERC System uses patented liquid cooling technology and specially designed cooling pads.

The liquid transfers through a system manifold and out to the cooling pads. Using the liquid, the heat is removed from the body, which in return is transferred to the system to be re-chilled and then is continually recirculated, creating an optimal temperature that doesn't fluctuate.

Direct Contact Cooling

The MERC System is the first direct contact cooling system using liquid cooling technology to store human remains, and is the only human remains recovery system that is completely portable, scalable and interoperable.

The MERC System is one of the most efficient human remains cooling solutions on the market. The disaster portable morgue unit nearly eliminates the need for large, stationary coolers or refrigeration units, allowing efficient storage during mass casualty events.

MERC-TCS-24 Systems disaster portable morgue units are designed to allow up to 24 bodies to be stored at a time, an increase from the 8 in the MERC-TCS-8. With the direct contact cooling method, the MERC System can bring down the core temperature of the cadaver at a faster rate than comparitave air-driven cooling systems.

Portability For Fast Response

The portability and scalability of the disaster morgue makes it the ideal solution where physical space or budgetary constraints require an alternative to traditional morgue refrigeration.

Previously, the only equipment available to solve the issue of mass fatality cold storage was oversized walk-in refrigerators or refrigerated tractor trailers.

While both these methods are functional solutions, they each bring their own drawbacks when responding to any mass fatality incident. Local morgues, hospitals and funeral homes can quickly reach capacity in the midst of disaster relief with these solutions.

Preparedness for an emergency is critical to ensure that a community can respond quickly with all of the resources needed. This disaster morgue was developed as a portable unit, a mobile morgue, and can be moved to the location of any event and quickly deployed in a warehouse, gym, tent, parking lot or roadway.
MERC Systems are designed for fast response. The disater portable morgue unit can be set up within 15 minutes with incredible ease. With the MERC-TCS-24 Systems you have the capability of turning any room into a morgue for proper response to even extreme scenarios.

Let your team or facility be ready in the event of extreme and mass casualty events. The disaster portable morgue is the ideal solution for a mass casualty event.
