Leak Testing should be performed if the SCBA fails any of
the inspection steps; following disassembly; or, as part of
a regularly scheduled maintenance procedure. The SCBA
must hold system pressure without leaks to provide adequate protection. The component leak test procedure is
the first step in trouble-shooting. These tests ensure that
you do not have a leak. Leak testing quickly identifies
components which need repair or replacement.

audible alarm to ring
briefly and redundant
alarm tones as pressure in the system
increases.
DONNING THE APPARATUS
1. Remove the facepiece from the case.
WARNING
Do not use a cover lens in a high-temperature environment, such as firefighting. High temperatures may distort the cover lens. Or, moisture trapped between a
cover lens and the facepiece lens may condense and
distort vision. Always remove the cover lens before
donning the facepiece.
4. As the pressure rises from 50 to 200 psig, both visible
and audible alarms activate automatically, indicating
that the alarms are functional and "cocked." When the
system is fully pressurized, the alarms enter the
Monitor (normal) mode.
2. Check that the cylinder is fully pressurized.
WARNING
WARNING
If the alarm fails to ring, ICM or Redundant Alarm fails
to light and tone, do not use the apparatus. The SCBA
must be checked and corrected for proper operation
by an MSA trained or certified repairperson before
using. Failure to follow this precaution may result in
serious personal injury or death.
If the cylinder is not full, the service time is reduced
accordingly & should not be used.

the pressure gauge, Redundant alarm or ICM.
2. Pull the head harness
completely over your
head and tighten the
lower (neck) straps.
CAUTION
If the needle drops more than 100 psi in 10 seconds,
do not use the SCBA.
9. Crack the bypass valve slowly to bleed off pressure
until the Redundant alarm or ICM drops below:
530 psig - approximately (low-pressure system)
750 psig. approximately ( 3000psi System)
1175 psig – approximately (high-pressure system)
3. Tighten the lower (neck) harness straps first, by pulling
them straight back, not out. Tighten the temple straps
the same way. Tuck in the ends of the straps so that
they lay flat across the head.
4. Push headband pad towards neck, tighten the front
strap for best visibility and fit. Tuck in the ends of the
straps so they flat across the head.
The Redundant alarm, ICM and audi-alarm will sound
and the gauge will illuminate until you turn the redundant alarm OFF.
10. When the pressure falls below 200 psig, turn the alarm
off.
FACEPIECE FIT CHECK
WARNING
If the audi-alarm fails to ring, ICM or Redundant alarm
fails to light and tone, or fails to continuously ring to
200 psig, do not use the apparatus. The SCBA must be
checked and corrected for proper operation by an
MSA trained or certified repairperson before using.
Failure to follow this precaution may result in serious
personal injury or death.
WARNING
Check the inhalation valve, inhale. If you do not
receive sufficient flow of air, do not use facepiece. The
facepiece must be repaired or replaced.
1. To check for facepiece
fit, hold the palm of
your hand over the inlet
facepiece adapter and
inhale. Hold your
breath at least 10 seconds. The facepiece
should collapse and
stay collapsed against
your face. If it does
not, readjust the facepiece and test again. If
this does not correct the leak, do not use the facepiece.
Note: Before donning, check that the regulator sealing
ring is seated properly in its groove, and that it is not torn,
gouged, or nicked.
THE SPEED-ON HARNESS
WARNING
Do not wear eye glasses under the facepiece. The
temples or sidebars on eye glasses will prevent an airtight seal. if you must wear glasses, install the spectacle kit. Failure to follow this precaution may cause
inhalation of contaminated air, resulting in serious respiratory injury or death.
2. Test the exhalation
valve, take a deep
breath and hold it.
Block the inlet facepiece adapter with the
palm of your hand and
exhale. If the exhalation
valve is stuck, you may
feel a heavy rush of air
around the facepiece.
1. Extend the facepiece
straps fully place neckstrap around your neck
and don the facepiece
by inserting your chin
first.
