Breathing Air Cascade Application

Breathing Air Cascade Application

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.
