Power assisted respirator
23 January 2013
With the HSE estimating around 4000 asbestos related cancer deaths in the UK each year, Scott Health & Safety has signalled a major technological advance for mask mounted powered respirators with the launch of Phantom
Combining a new lithiumion battery, long-life brushless motor and electronics technology with the already popular Vision full facemask, the new Phantom Vision is a power assisted respirator which can be used in a wide variety of demanding work- place environments including asbestos removal and nuclear decommissioning.
With its motor mounted inside the facemask, Phantom Vision is said to significantly reduce the burden for the user and greatly simplify the decontamination process after use. Utilising the specialist features of the Vision facemask, the Phantom is available in three sizes offering high levels of comfort for the user and an unrestricted (98%) field of view.
The new design was developed specifically to meet the requirements identified during extensive consultation with users and specifiers of existing PAPRs.
