The ELSA is an escape breathing apparatus which provides a constant supply of air for rapid escape from hazardous industrial and marine environments. The ELSA is simple and quick to operate, reliable and robust in use, ensuring maximum protection in an escape situation. The ELSA is available in durations of 10 or 15 minutes in high visibility PVC or black anti-static polyurethane materials. The ELSA apparatus consists of a cylinder with combined cylinder valve and reducer, supply hose to constant flow hood and stowage bag. The ELSA is activated upon opening the bag whereby a pin which is attached to the bag via a strap is released.
Carrying Bag: The carrying bag is made of PVC coated nylon. This is colored for high visibility and is both flame retardant and chemical splash resistant. There is an antistatic option for working in potentially explosive atmospheres and this is made of polyurethane. The bag can be worn across the chest, as a bandolier or worn with an optional waist belt.
Hood: The constant flow hood is manufactured from polyurethane coated viscose. This is flame retardant and colored for high visibility. This provides a stretch material for a comfortable fit combined with an elastomeric neck seal giving ease of donning over spectacles, beards and long hair. The optionally clear bubble visor is made from polyurethane. The mask has an exhale valve for increased performance and a compact ¼ mask reduced rebreathed CO2 levels.
Maintenance/ Cleaning/ Servicing: N.B. – Cleaning should only be carried out as specified in the user instructions. Maintenance and Servicing must only be performed by trained personnel following the procedures in the Service and Maintenance manual.
