Product on quotation only outside Metropolitan France Devis

The EBA 6.5 is a compressed oxygen self-contained self-rescuer providing over 90 minutes of breathing air autonomy and up to 8 hours of autonomy at rest. A performance that goes beyond the requirements of the MSHA and NIOSH standards.

It is particularly suitable for emergency evacuations in mines, caving, speleology construction and operation of tunnels or on industrial sites. Detailed description


EBA 6.5 self-contained self-rescuer with high autonomy

The EBA 6.5 is a highly reliable self-contained self-rescuer breathing apparatus tested in life-threatening situations throughout the world. It supplies over 90 minutes of oxygen during a typical mine escape — up to 8 hours of oxygen at rest — a performance that exceeds all MSHA and NIOSH standards. 


Oxygen from the breathing bag is inhaled through the inhalation tube and the mouthpiece. Breathed air is exhaled through the mouthpiece into the CO2 scrubber.Oxygen delivery ranges from 1.5 l/min constant flow up to 100 l/min demand flow.


The oxygen content indicated on the SCSR gauge is always visible for inspection through the clear, tamper-proof sealed case.
