Cascade – 6 cylinder

The Maersk H2S safety services cascade system comes with 6 cylinders for use with Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and Work and Escape Breathing Apparatus (WEBA).

The cascades are robust and tested as a reliable breathing air supply. The standard cascades are fitted with a HPR reducer that supplies a low pressure manifold with 6-10 bar from the 200 bar cylinders.

The cascade consists of:
• Stainless steel rack
• 6 x 50 L. steel cylinders at 200 bar for breathing air
• Total volume of air: 60.000 Litres
• High preassure distribution hoses for 200 bar pressure
• HPR reducer
• Low pressure manifolds
• Low pressure air hoses

With a light design and using high quality pneumatics, the cascade system ensures consistent high performance over the lifetime of the unit, with minimal need for maintenance.

The cascades are load tested yearly to ensure uniform structual contegrity and stability.
