Water exposure is an inherent risk in asbestos environments as water is used to damp down dust and fibres to reduce airborne concentrations and in the process of decontamination. Powered air respirators by nature need power, and as electronics and water don’t mix well, a water resistant product is needed: In addition to its potted motor to stop water ingress, Phantom Vision’s key electrical components are also coated with high quality metal, increasing the solutions robustness and further protecting the electronics. A further welcome enhancement is a waterproof switch at the mask for ease of operation.

Key features of the Phantom Vision include:

  • Designed in extensive consultation with Powered RPE users
  • Lightweight and provides great visibility
  • Water resistant components
  • Optimised electronics, motor and battery for increased durability and reliability -Simplified maintenance and intuitive re-assembly between uses
  • Available in three sizes to suit the widest range of users

Mark Andrews, product line manager at Scott Safety, said: “Asbestos removal work environments can be hazardous and harsh. Our aim is to develop solutions that prioritize the user’s safety and protection with systems that workers can rely on. The Phantom Vision is just that, a system that provides improved user experience, during the challenging process of asbestos removal.

“We have updated the Scott Safety Phantom Vision powered air respirator with this in mind. It is a lightweight solution that will help make a very hard job, more manageable.”

Phantom Vision will provide greater comfort and ease of operation for users in applications requiring powered air respiratory protection EN12942 TM3 approval.
