The Scott Cen-Paq is an open circuit, self-contained compressed air breathing apparatus. It consists of a Hi-Vis jacket based carrying system and pneumatic system, containing a cylinder connector, reducer, pressure gauge and a whistle and demand valve. The Cen-Paq is a single cylinder set with a duration of 15, 20 or 30 minutes. The Cen-Paq can also be configured with an anti-static jacket and an airline attachment. The Cen-Paq is used in conjunction with a range of composite or steel cylinders and the choice of Vision 3, PanaSeal, PanaVisor or Promask PP facemask.
The Cen-Paq was specifically designed as a snatch rescue SCBA, but is also suitable for work in the Oil and Gas industry and providing respiratory protection in any IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health) environment.
