Self Contained Breathing Apparatus - PAS Colt
Supplied by: Draeger Safety Pacific
PAS Colt - a positive pressure, hip mounted compressed air breathing apparatus for emergency escape or short duration operation.
The PAS Colt combines ease of use with modern technology to provide one of the most advanced short duration and emergency escape units available.
The very latest harness design and materials, accompanied by smaller, lightweight cylinders, make wearing this set easier and more comfortable. The versatility allows it to be used effectively in applications and environments ranging from chemical spills and decontamination operations to routine maintenance tasks.
The PAS Colt is a hip-mounted unit with a distinctive, sophisticated harness design
which retains its form, making it easy for the wearer to don the apparatus simply and quickly.
The procedure for donning the apparatus is evident at first glance, even to the inexperienced user, equipped, as an option, with a unique ‘drop down’ feature, whereby the cylinder can be un-clipped from the waistbelt, makes the PAS Colt ideal for use in confined space entry applications.
The harness has been constructed using an anti-static material inert to chemicals and oil, and impervious to most acids and alkalis. Benefiting from a high resistance to abrasion and heat, this new harness meets the requirements of EN137 heat and flame resistant and is machine washable.
This material was chosen because of its flexibility and ability to retain its form and shape, in a wide range of temperatures. Its durability, ease of cleaning, resilience and strength means it is ideal for use in extreme conditions. The technology used in the development of this unit is inherited from Draeger’s advanced PSS® range of breathing apparatus, designed for professional fire fighters. The buckles used are designed to be easily located, even when wearing gloves, for quick adjustment, but follow the contours of the unit to reduce the risk of snagging.
Depending on the requirements of the operation, this unit has been fully approved for use in applications requiring either; short duration entry units, airline emergency escape breathing apparatus, or dual function.
Short Duration Entry Unit (EN137)
Gauge and high pressure whistle warning units, sounding at 55 bar, are located at the waist to enable easy and regular checking during operation.
Airline Emergency Escape (EN402)
When used independently or in conjunction with Draeger’s PAS AirPack 1 or 2 Airline systems, the gauge is integrated into the cylinder valve to allow for easy periodical inspection.
