New self-contained (open-circuit) breathing apparatus Dräger PSS 4000

Lübeck – The Dräger PSS 4000 is one of the lightest self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in its class, developed for fire fighting missions under extreme conditions. In addition to high wearing comfort and a powerful pneumatic system, it is characterized by its uncomplicated handling. Lightweight, yet robust, the PSS 4000 offers excellent respiratory protection.

The PSS 4000 includes the familiar technology and proven design of the Dräger PSS series. It has been developed to ensure optimal respiratory protection with extended duration of use under extreme conditions. Supported by an ergonomic carrying frame and a simple "pull forward" mechanism, the wearer can don the system quickly and easily.

Ergonomic carrying system

The robust, yet lightweight, carbon composite carrying space frame offers a high wearing comfort. The material is highly resistant to thermal, mechanical, and chemical loads and ensures improved stability with simultaneously lower loads and stress on the back. The specially shaped harness offers an optimal weight distribution both on the shoulders and on the hips. With its robust stainless steel buckles and hard-wearing aramid textiles the SCBA is perfectly suited for hard and frequent use under extreme conditions.

Easy to service and maintain

The Dräger PSS 4000 features a number of properties that contribute to reduced service and maintenance times. All main components can be easily removed and refitted. The harness is attached to the carrying frame by a simple fastening method with a single-piece holding fixture. The pressure reducer has been integrated into the carrying frame. The sealed single-piece carrying system and the harness material prevent excessive water absorption, significantly reducing cleaning and drying times.

Integrated hose guide for added safety

The medium and high-pressure hoses of the SCBA have been integrated into the carrying frame to prevent the risk of getting caught. Optionally, the medium-pressure hose can be routed over either the left or right shoulder.

 

The PSS 4000 is manufactured by Dräger Safety AG & Co. KGaA
