Supplied Air Respirator
Atlas safety provides rentals for your (SAR) Supplied Air Respirator needs. The basic supplied air respirator is comprised of a respirator facepiece, which is a tight-fitting half mask or full face mask, or a loose-fitting hood or helmet. These are connected to an air supply hose and a breathing air source. The air supply source can be a low-pressure source like an air compressor designed specifically for respiratory protection, that draws air from a clean environment. Another option is a high-pressure air supply source like an air cylinder or compressed air supply.
Basic SARs are most commonly used in either one of two modes: continuous flow (the breathing air flows into the facepiece at a standard, steady rate) or pressure demand (the facepiece is continually pressurized with breathing air, and additional air is drawn in based upon the wearer’s breathing requirements). Pressure demand SARs require a high-pressure supply source due to their performance requirements.
Breathing Air Systems:Trailer
Our breathing air systems options include low and high-pressure trailers for breathing air transport.
A Breather Box is a portable filtration system designed to provide breathing air for a fixed number of operatives from non-breathing air supplies. The Breather Box with CO Monitor is the same type of filtration system with a Carbon Monoxide monitoring system added.
(SCBA) Self Contained Breathing Apparatus
Self-Contained Breathing Apparatuses (SCBAs) is a breathing apparatus where the wearer transports the breathing air in a cylinder on their back. SCBAs offer the advantage of giving the user freedom of movement, but carrying around a cylinder can be fatiguing. Cylinders for SCBAs have a finite amount of breathing air and will need to be changed out. Supplied air respirators are available in 30, 45 and 60-minute capacities.
SAR Escape Units-5 Minute Egress
Supplied air escape units with a 5-minute egress are designed especially for escape from immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH) atmospheres. As defined by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as exposure to airborne contaminants that are “likely to cause death or immediate or delayed permanent adverse health effects.
Regulator Manifold Systems
Atlas rents air regulator manifold systems that allow for steady monitoring and control of air pressures within industrial environments.
We have a variety of SAR, supplied air respirator hoses in a variety of specifications. Specify pressure type, hose type, series compatibility length and inner diameter.
