Air respirable - système de cascade
Hydrogen sulphide gas can pose one of the most vicious and deadly hazards in the oil and gas industry. In the case of a break-out, the number of casualties can be substantial. Hence the need for strict regulations and continuous improvements. In high doses, the gas, also known as H2S, can cause a man to lose consciousness in a matter of a few seconds.
In case of an H2S leak, operators will put on their breathing apparatus with individual oxygen tubes but, if the leakage persists, they can connect to a cascade system in order to save oxygen. To do so, they can quickly and easily disconnect the CEJN breathing-air couplings from the individual tube and immediately connect to the cascade system. The connection is 100% intrusion free. The cascade system also serves as a meeting point where the whole team can congregate to ensure nobody is missing.
