Breathing Apparatus

Working with reputable manufacturers to provide the highest standard and state of the art technology, Tyco Fire & Integrated Security ensure that clients are provided with the best service, training and supply of breathing apparatus such as airline and escape respirators.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF BREATHING AIR SERVICES


SCBA
  A Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) is a device worn by first responders, firefighters, and industrial workers to provide breathable air in environments that are Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH). The term "Self-Contained" differentiates SCBA from other apparatus connected to a remote supply by a long hose.
Airline
  An Airline Respirator (also called an Air-Supplied Respirator or Supplied Air Respirator, SAR) is a respirator that is connected to a source of compressed breathing air (such as an air cart or stationary system) via a high-pressure hose. The air is delivered continuously or intermittently in a sufficient volume to meet the wearer's breathing requirements.
Escape
  Escape Respirators are designed for use only to egress from hazardous atmospheres within 5, 10 and 15 minutes. Some escape respirators are used in conjunction with an airline to provide a small source of air in emergencies where an airline air source is severed
Respiratory Protection
  Air purifying respirators use cartridge or canisters constructed of carbon or paper-based filters to remove contaminants or particles from non-IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health) environments. Air-Purifying Respirators have numerous applications from construction and automotive repairs to Pharmaceutical and Oil production.
Chemical Re-breathers
  The Chemical Oxygen Self Rescuer is a self-contained respiratory escape device. It is ideal for all escape applications wherever there are situations of oxygen deficiency, presence of toxic gases and. The principle uses Potassium Superoxide (KO²) in conjunction with exhaled gas (mostly CO²) and through a chemical process to generate oxygen for the users’ consumption. Due to this, the sets are light and more compact.
