Cylinders

Over the years, compressed gas cylinders have been providing SCBA users with a supply of fresh air.  The original cylinders were made of steel and quite heavy.  Today, advances in technology have enabled cylinders to become much lighter and less burdensome to the SCBA wearer.
Scott offers a complete assortment of cylinders,  including the newest and lightest 5.5 cylinder, to meet the needs and demands of all SCBA users – aluminum cylinders for infrequently used SCBA to carbon-wrapped cylinders for daily use.  In addition, Scott Safety offers cylinders in 30’, 45’, 60’ and 75′ durations.

5.5 Cylinders

The engineers of Scott Safety determined the best manner to accomplish this was to increase the pressure of the cylinders to 5500 psig, which created the new 5.5 cylinders. The result is a cylinder that has more than a 10% reduction in weight and profi le in a traditional form familiar to SCBA users. Another benefi t to the 5.5 cylinder offering is the ease of integration into your department without the need of costly infrastructure changes.

Scott Safety has worked with leading Truck Seat and SCBA Bracket manufacturers to ensure these products work with the existing products in the market. The construction continues to be an aluminum liner wrapped with layers of carbon fi bers and fi berglass all sealed with a protective epoxy resin coating which makes the cylinder easier to clean. The 5.5 cylinders are available in 30′ 45′, 60′ and new 75′ durations.
