The most interesting exhibit

One of the most interesting exhibits of “Bunker-42” is a regenerative two-level RDU installation, which allowed us to stay in our bunker in full isolation mode for up to 64 hours. Only we have the whole installation in a complete set - our museum received pyroxide plates for exposition, which are capable of regenerating air in enclosed spaces by interacting with water and carbon dioxide in the air.

RDU devices were invented by Matvey Ilyich Klyashtorny, a Soviet chemist and an outstanding inventor, professor, first head of the Department of Technology of Inorganic Substances and Inorganic Chemistry of the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology of the Donetsk Polytechnic Institute, Doctor of Technical Sciences, laureate of the Stalin Prize. Author of 74 scientific papers, 15 copyright inventions and patents. He invented RDU installations in 1943, and they allowed Soviet submariners to stay submerged for up to 15 days without surfacing, which certainly helped save the lives of many Soviet sailors. With the advent of nuclear weapons, such naval installations began to be supplied and bunkers - in the mode of complete isolation, they are not much different from a submarine. For this invention, Klyashtorny was awarded the Stalin Prize. Today, each of the visitors to Bunker-42 will finally be able to see this unit assembled, because, as far as we know, such a complete set is not kept in any museum in Russia, including museumified submarines.

We are waiting for you at the interactive programs of Bunker-42!
