Miners breathe easy

WORMALD has launched a constant flow escape breathing apparatus to aid escape from hazardous atmospheres such as fires or asphyxiating fumes that can arise in mines.

WORMALD has launched a constant flow escape breathing apparatus to aid escape from hazardous atmospheres such as fires or asphyxiating fumes that can arise in mines.

Providing breathable air, the apparatus comprises compressed air cylinder with combined cylinder and pressure reducing valve, supply hose to air hood and stowage bag.

The air supply is automatically activated upon opening the bag.

The product is available in either 10 or 15 minute durations.

The air hood uses a unique cubical design for optimum comfort and visibility.

The three-sided flat visor provides excellent peripheral vision and the shape helps to alleviate certain restrictions associated with existing hood designs.

The hood can easily be flat packed for stowage without creasing the visor.

An inner mask prevents visor misting and minimises CO2 dead space.

The apparatus also features a duration whistle to alert the user should the air become depleted and the CO2 levels within the hood exceed the performance specification.
