Scott facepiece approved

ffic-june08-watchroom-scottJune 3, 2008, Scott Health & Safety has received NIOSH approval for its Scott AV-2000 facepiece as a CBRN approved air-purifying respirator (APR), making it the first facepiece that can be converted from CBRN APR to a CBRN SCBA application without using tools.

Using Scott’s revolutionary top-down convertibility design feature, the Scott AV-2000 facepiece can now be used in two unique CBRN applications from fire fighting and emergency response SCBA to decontamination and triage (APR).  This universal application of CBRN approval is unique in the industry and allows first responders to respond to any emergency situation without carrying two different facepieces and changing out facepieces in the field.

There are no tools required to utilize the CBRN approval of the AV-2000 facepiece as an air purifying respirator. The AV-2000 CBRN air-purifying respirator is a complete system that uses Scott’s newest AV-2000 facepiece, (identified by a grey nosecup and Kevlar head harness) with the Scott CBRN 40mm adapter and CBRN Cap-1 canister. The one-time use CBRN canister has a shelf life of seven years from the date of manufacture as long as it remains sealed in its original packaging.
