Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

Precision Safety offer a complete range of Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), whatever Industry industry you are in. Our range of Self Contained Breathing Apparatus are suitable for Industrial Users as well as the most demanding professional fire fighting applications. Breathing Apparatus evolved significantly over the past years and we have a Self Contained Breathing Apparqtus (SCBA) suitable for a variety of applications and budgets. 

Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) are supplied with a full-face mask, regulator, air cylinder, cylinder pressure gauge, remote pressure gauge (optional with an integrated PASS device), and a harness with adjustable shoulder straps, and waist belt.

The air cylinders are available  in three standard sizes: 4.3 L, 6.8 L, or 9 L. The duration of the cylinder can be calculated with this formula: volume (in Litre) x pressure (in bars) / 40 – 10 in minutes (the 10 is subtracted to provide a safety margin), so a 6-liter cylinder, of 300bar, is 6 X 300 / 40 – 10 = 35 minutes working duration. The relative fitness, and especially the level of exertion of the wearer, often results in variations of the actual usable time that the SCBA can provide air, often reducing the working time by 25% to 50%.

Air cylinders are made of aluminium, steel, or of a composite construction (usually carbon-fibre wrapped.) The composite cylinders are the lightest in weight and are therefore preferred by fire departments and rescue services, but they also have the shortest lifespan and must be taken out of service after 15 years. Air cylinders must be hydro-statically tested every 5 years. During extended operations, empty air cylinders can be quickly replaced with fresh ones and then refilled from larger tanks in a cascade storage system or from an air compressor brought to the scene.
