Dräger PSS® 7000 (NFPA 2013 Edition)

Before you can protect the lives of others, you have to protect yourself. The Dräger PSS® 7000 SCBA sets the standard for breathing protection by providing unmatched comfort, durability and safety in the harshest environments. The ergonomic PSS 7000 combines trusted pneumatics, flexible fit, and quick cylinder connection—freeing you to concentrate on the task at hand.

 

Innovative harness system provides unmatched comfort and durability

Dräger SCBAs are designed with a lower center of gravity to increase stability and balance, allowing you to work more effectively with less fatigue. The PSS 7000 has an adjustable harness suspension system that provides the ultimate in comfort and extended wear. Durable webbing and advanced compression-molded comfort padding offer up to 6.5 x higher abrasion resistance than traditional padding. The material is easy to clean and disinfect, and is highly resistant to chemical and mechanical damage. The harness has a high-grip, anti-slip inner surface that stays securely in place—without a chest strap or having to over-tighten the shoulder straps. Cooling channels in the shoulder straps and waist belt reduce the likelihood of compression burns. A stainless steel harness-friction buckle makes the SCBA fast and easy to don and doff.

 

Ergonomic 3-position backplate allows freedom of movement

The Dräger PSS 7000 was designed to move with you—allowing unrestricted movement as you walk, crawl or climb. The backplate automatically lengthens and pivots to mirror your movements. The unique self-adjusting and pivoting waist belt keeps the SCBA on your hips when you reach and prevents your coat from riding up. To reduce back strain, the weight of the harness is designed to ride on your hips. The 3-position carbon fiber composite backplate adjusts to comfortably fit different torso lengths. A slide-and-lock harness mechanism allows the harness and waist belt to be connected or removed from the backplate quickly—without tools. To minimize the risk of snagging or damage, supply hoses are integrated neatly into the backplate.

 

Rapid, secure cylinder change-outs save precious time

The PSS 7000 has a lock-and-load system that lets you securely change out cylinders quickly. A proven quarter-turn adapter allows you to quickly and easily attach the cylinder to the reducer—saving time compared to conventional threaded reducer hand wheel and cylinder connections. The quick connect features a safety interlock system which prevents disconnection at pressures above 70 psi (approx.) and enables you to reenter the action more quickly and allows for mutual cylinder aid or exchange—regardless of what SCBA is used.

 

Dräger Sentinel 7000—Real-time monitoring of key indicators Incorporating a centralized power supply and pressure sensor module within the backplate, the robust system combines maximum component protection with balanced weight distribution for reduced physical stress. An electronic gauge provides real-time monitoring of essential information, including: – Accurate, continuously updated digital display of pressure and time to EOSTI activation (time based on dynamic breathing rate) – Battery status display – 360° visual and audible alarms triggered when PASS is activated – Automatic self-tests and system tests – Enhanced data logging with personal ID
