MERCSystem® (Mortuary Enhanced Remains Cooling System)

Portable mass fatality cold storage system    

When fatalities exceed local hospital, city and/or county's resource capabilities

Efficiently cools human remains

Direct contact cooling system with an engineered cooling pad

NO refrigerated or chilled air required

Completely portable

Completely scalable (1 to 48 Remain Capacity systems)   

With the ever increasing threat of mass fatality incidents, comes the need for portable mass fatality cold storage capability. Although there is no specific number of fatalities that define a mass fatality incident, the number generally exceeds the local hospital, city and/or county's resource capabilities. Mass fatality incidents include man-made incidents such as terrorist attacks, mass transit accidents, and hazmat releases, as well as natural disasters such as flooding, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, and global disease outbreaks. The patented MERCSystem® is the first direct contact cooling system utilizing liquid cooling technology in conjunction with an engineered cooling pad. The MERCSystem® is used to efficiently cool human remains and requires NO refrigerated or chilled air. The systems are completely portable and scalable to meet end-user requirements.

MERCSystem® - How It Works

Step 1 - After remains are received, unzip body bag to completely expose remains.

Step 2 - The MERC® Cooling Pad should be placed over the remains as shown. Place arms carefully on top of pad. Body bag should be zipped.

Step 3 - The body should be carefully lifted onto MRS Cadaver Storage System.

Step 4 - Cooling pad hoses should be connected to supply/return hoses. Supply/return hoses should be connected to the appropriate port.
