EBA 6.5 can be donned in 15 seconds or less.
Since introducing the
EBA 6.5, Ocenco, Inc. has sold more emergency
escape breathing appartus to the U.S. mining industry
than all other manufacturers combined.
Why? Because the EBA's
oxygen supply is long-lasting.
The EBA 6.5 supplies the
wearer more than 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
delivery ranges from 1.5 1/min constant flow up
to 100 1/min demand flow.)
The EBA 6.5 uses compressed oxygen as a source
rather than generating oxygen from chemicals.
The oxygen content indicated on the gauge is always
visible for inspection through a clear, tamper-proof
The apparatus can be refurbished for a service
life of up to 15 years and provides a lower cost
per year of service than any comparible unit.
The EBA 6.5 is a highly reliable breathing apparatus
tested in life-threatening situations throughout
the world. Thousands are currently in service in mines, tunnels and sewers in Australia, Canada, Chile and South Africa as well as the United States.
