Emergency Escape Breathing Device(EEBD)

Main Description

S-Cap-Air is the Short Duration Compressed Air Emergency Escape Breathing Device [EEBD] from MSA, providing respiratory protection in toxic and oxygen deficient atmospheres. 

S-Cap-Air offers a duration of 15 minutes for a safe escape. Designed for use on board of ships, in chemical industries, off-shore oil rigs, refineries, water utilities and confined spaces, the S-Cap-Air is light and compact and very easy to use. It can either be carried by the user or kept in readiness close to the workplace for immediate access in case of emergency. 

The S-Cap-Air is supplied in a fluorescent protective carrying bag ensuring high visibility and protection from the environment. It consists of a 3-litre 200 bar compressed air cylinder with automatic air supply valve and pressure indicator, a high visibility hood with oro-nasal face mask, large visor and elastic neck seal, and a well visible pneumatic end-of-service time indicator turning red before the cylinder pressure is exhausted.

For easy use and to keep potential users acquainted with the S-Cap-Air, the protective carrying bag has clear donning instructions in 4 pictographs. The use is very simple – pull the firing strap, don the hood and make your way to safety.

Pulling the firing strap opens the zipper giving access to the hood, automatically starting the air supply, in one simple action the set is already delivering breathing air to the hood when it is donned. 

S-Cap-Air, the Emergency Escape Breathing Device is certified to EN 1146 for a duration of up to 15 minutes. It meets the International Maritime Organisation [IMO] SOLAS resolution MSC. 99C [73] making EEBD’s mandatory on all vessels.
