The 3M™ Scott™ ELSA (Emergency Life Support Apparatus) is an escape breathing apparatus which provides a constant supply of air for rapid escape from hazardous industrial and marine environments.
Intended for rapid escape from hazardous industrial and marine environments, the 3M™ Scott™ ELSA (Emergency Life Support Apparatus) is designed to be reliable, robust, and quick and simple to operate, ensuring maximum protection in escape situations. The apparatus consists of a steel or carbon fibre cylinder with a combined cylinder valve and pressure reducer, a supply hose to the hood, and a carrying bag. The user activates the ELSA by opening the bag, which automatically releases a pin that’s attached with an activating strap. The constant-flow hood features a cubic design with a large visor area for peripheral vision, while an ori-nasal inner mask prevents misting and reduces carbon dioxide dead space. The flame-retardant PVC-coated material is flexible and, along with an ozone-resistant elastomeric neck seal, helps provide ease of donning over spectacles, beards or long hair. The black antistatic polyurethane bag is available for those in potentially explosive atmospheres. The ELSA is approved to the European Standard EN 1146:2005, MED (Shipswheel approval) and ISO 23269-1:2008.
