These composite compresses air cylinders are available in a range of sizes from 2 litres up to 9 litres with a charging capacity of 300bar.

They take cylinders to an all new level by using the very latest technology. They feature a blown thermoplastic polyester liner that contains a boss made from either stainless steel or aluminium and are then carbon fibre wrapped with epoxy resin to withstand rigorous use.

They are 30% lighter than conventional aluminium lined cylinders and 5 times lighter than steels. They offer longer duration of breathable air to the wearer as well as being much lighter with less risk of user fatigue and back problems.

These cylinders have an unlimited life span as they have achieved more than 12000 cycles at 450 bar so conform to EN12245.

They are fitted with replaceable end caps and the valve thread can also be replaced at little cost. Add to all of this the price and the question has to be who would now want to use heavy steel cylinders or pay for composites that only have a life of 15 years.

All of these cylinders can be fitted with the existing M18 x 1.5mm valves so your set will still comply with all applicable BA directives.

Scott Safety offer either 200 or 300 bar steel or carbon fibre composite cylinders, these can be provided with either 90 degree or straight flow valves. All valves have a safety locking handwheel.

The duration times for working are calculated at 40 litres per minute.

So a 9 litre 200 bar cylinder is, 9 times 200, which equals 1800 litres of air, 1800 divided by 40 (litres per minute used), gives a working time of 45 minutes. 15 minutes of the 45 should be adopted for escape.
