MSA is proud to announce the introduction of the new PremAire Escape, a compressed air Emergency Escape Breathing Device (EEBD) that provides users with respiratory protection while escaping from toxic atmospheres. It was designed with extensive input from global Oil & Gas customers who highlighted the need for a fast to don and easy to use respirator with components that withstand high levels of potential industrial gas leaks and harsh chemical environments.
With its intuitive donning procedure that takes less than 5 seconds, the PremAire Escape enables the wearer to escape without difficulty from a potentially hazardous environment. It offers an air supply of 10-15 minutes duration to enable a safe escape.
The standard PremAire Escape is equipped with the proven MSA 3S full face mask. For potential high concentration industrial gas leaks, like deadly H2S, the device is available with the PremAire Mask-Hood.
The PremAire Mask-Hood features an integrated mask-hood combination providing two independent protection barriers. The first protection seal is the original tight fitting face seal in combination with the positive pressure created by the AutoMaXX lung governed demand valve. The second protection barrier is created by the hood/neck seal, which isolates the face piece sealing line fully from the ambient gaseous atmosphere. In addition, the innovative, patent-pending PremAire Mask-Hood design enables the continuous flushing of the hood with exhaled clean air. The components used in manufacturing were tested in a third party test house with real H2S at concentrations exceeding 25% and the permeation detected was minimum.
The PremAire Escape is approved according to EN 402.
