SK 1203 System

SK 1203 is a Self-contained open-circuit compressed air breathing apparatus incorporating a hood for escape (Emergency Escape Breathing Device) and it is used for self rescue in all the environments where dangerous situations may occur due to fire fumes or lack of oxygen. SK 1203 is extremely easy to use and it does not require special training, the air flow is automatically activated when the hood is taken out from the bag and it supplies the operator with a constant flow of breathable air for 15 minutes. The small weight and the special ergonomic shape of the bag enable to carry the apparatus SK 1203 along in a ready for use status even for long periods so that it can be donned and activated immediately in case of emergency. SK 1203 is designed to grant to the user a constant flow of air to escape from the dangerous surrounding, at the end of the air reserve a special valve opens and allows to breath ambient air that at that point shall be free of contaminant. SK 1203 is made of a cylinder, a valve / pressure reducer, a breathing tube, a hood and a transport bag. The 2 l 300 bar cylinder is directly connected to the valve/reducer that is provided with a gauge which continuously indicates the pressure inside the cylinder. The breathing tube that feeds the hood is connected to the valve/reducer and it is positioned inside the bag in such a way that the flow is activated when the hood is taken out from the bag. The hood is provided with high visibility visor and rubber collar that grants a perfect tightness and that fits with every face shape. The hood is also provided with inner half mask for the reduction of the dead space and with a valve which opens to the ambient air when the air reserve is finished. The bag is provided with a transparent window which enables to control the gauge from outside and with closing seals which enable to easily detect if the apparatus has been used or tampered.
