Description

FLITE COV is a positive pressure Supplied Air Respirator that also provides emergency respiratory protection and escape capability. The FLITE COV allows the user to enter hazardous atmospheres – including those identified as immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH). If needed, the switch to the emergency air supply cylinder is accomplished by an automatic change over valve. This ability greatly simplifies the response to a stressful situation.

The unit also features a flame retardant polyester harness with stainless steel buckles, combined cylinder and pressure reducing valve assembly and a rugged mask-mounted demand valve with automatic first breath activation. The FLITE COV is versatile and can be used in applications like confined space entry, hazardous materials handling and any number of general maintenance tasks in a wide variety of industries including chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas and public utilities.

In the event of an interruption of air flow from the primary supply source, switchover to emergency cylinder air supply is immediately activated by the automatic change over valve to facilitate safe egress. Warning whistle informs user switch has been made to cylinder air.
