Pressure Reducer
The Scott Air-Pak is the only SCBA
with two inter-connected,
redundant pressure reducers
Developed with NASA in 1976 with
no reported complete failures to
date
Even in the event of a complete
failure, will fail in OPEN position
A reduction in primary pressure
triggers an automatic transfer to
the back up reducer to provide the
user an uninterrupted air flow
which then pneumatically triggers
the Vibralert
