Self Contained Breathing Apparatus
Of all the breathing air systems, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus(SCBA) is perhaps the most common. SCBA provides 30 - 50 minutes of breathing air carried on a cylinder on the back. As opposed to airline breathing apparatus, it provides the advantage of not being connected to a breathing air hose, giving greater mobility.
A variety of SCBA sets are available from different manufacturers such as Scott and Drager, with cylinder working pressures of 200 to 379 bar. Typically used with lightweight carbon cylinders these provide an ideal way of protecting workers in highly hazardous areas, or for emergency use in applications such as spill response and fire fighting.
