Flite Airline Breathing Apparatus

Item Code: Flite Airline Breathing Apparatus

Dispatch: TBA

The Scott Safety Flite is an open circuit, positive pressure airline breathing apparatus generally comprising of a bandolier harness, positive pressure airline apparatus with automatic positive pressure demand valve, supply hose and coupling for airline supply hose.

An additional coupling allows the connection of an emergency air supply cylinder which provides an independent air supply with a duration of 10 to 15 minutes, dependant on cylinder size.

The apparatus can be used with the full range of Scott Safety positive pressure face masks as well as the Elsa positive pressure hood when used as an escape only apparatus.
