The PremAire® Cadet Respirator is a pressure-demand device, meaning it delivers respirable air to the user “on demand.” As such, it maintains a slight positive pressure of air inside the facepiece — whether the wearer is inhaling or exhaling — to prevent contaminants from entering the facepiece, should any slight face-to-facepiece seal leakage occur. Because the unit is a pressure-demand device, it can be used with a large, compressed air cylinder or a bank of cylinders set up in cascade fashion. For longer-duration air supplies, the respirator also can be used with a compresor that delivers respirable air to the user within the NIOSH-approved pressure range.
Economical combination supplied air respirator with excape cylinder in a streamlined, lighweight design. Escape cylinders rated at 5, 10 and 15 minutes Streamlined new design offers a first-stage regulator and cylinder valve within one assembly, creating a very small size and profile that is less likely to snag when working in tight places Cylinders can be worn on left or right hip Ultra Elite® Pressure-Demand Facepiece or Advantage® 4000 Facepiece with APR conversion capability offer choice of sizes and nose cups Cost-effective respiratory protection solution for many industries
PremAire® Cadet Respirators have received National Institute for Occupational Safety and Helth (NIOSH) certification for use in atmospheres not immediately dangerous to life or health (Non-IDLH).* Units are approved for use with an operating inlet pressure of 60 – 100 psig, and only when used with MSA Air-Supply Hose. PremAire® Cadet Respirators require a source of compressed air conforming to at least Grade D Compressed Gas Association, Inc., Commodity Specification for Air, G-7.1. *Not immediately dangerous to life or health is defined in 42 CFR Part 84 as any hazardous atmosphere which may produce physical discomfort immediately, chronic poisoning after repeated exposure, or acute adverse physilogical symptoms after prolonged exposure.
