Advantage 100 CBA-RCA Gas Mask

            The Advantage 100 CBA-RCA Gas Masks from Fire Dot are specially designed for use by law enforcement and emergency response personnel. The facepiece features a single low-profile canister. The gas mask is NIOSH approved (No.TC-14G-0235) for protection against chloroacetphenone (CN), chlorobenzylidene (CS), P100 particulate efficiency level and particulates. The gas mask does not have NIOSH  approval for oleoresin caosium, the "active" ingredient of OC Tear Gas. The canister provides up to eight hours service time against CN, CS, and OC agents. Please see table for additional information.

            The Advantage 100 CBA-RCA Gas Masks are also effective against biological agents, along with the following chemical warfare (CW) agents,: GA, GB (Sarin), GD, VX, Mustard, and Lewisite. Testing conducted by Fire Dot and independent laboratories assures that the gas mask and canister meet the requirements for effectiveness against CW agents using the test protocol recommended by the Chemical Agent Safety and Health Policy Action Committee (CASHPAC). They are also effective against OC (oleoresin capsicum) Riot Control Agent and HCN (hydrogen cyanide), but have not been tested or approved by NIOSH for these applications. Please see table for additional information.

            The Advantage 100 CBA-RCA Gas Mask is a clean, simplified respirator with super-soft Hycar facepiece (based on a proven facepiece design developed for the U.S. Armed Forces) that's up to 40% lighter than conventional full-face respirators and gives high performance, customized fit, comfort, economy and user acceptance.

            The flexible, 1-piecepolyurethane lens has a wide field of vision and is bonded to a durable supper-soft Hycar rubber facepiece. Bonding a flexible lens to the facepiece eliminates the need for a rigid lens that can cause uncomfortable pressure points. The facepiece has a wraparound design that minimizes dead-air space and provides good vision. The compact size also permits easy integration with most visored police helmets.      

            The facepiece has canister inlet ports on either side of the facepiece. The canister position (bayonet mount) can be switched to enable the user to sight a weapon from either shoulder.

            The Advantage 1000 CBA-RCA Gas Masks are molded of super-soft black Hycar rubber a specially formulated combination of natural rubber and synthetic materials. The facepiece is soft and pliable for a snug, comfortable fit. Hycar resists chemical attack and temperature extremes, and is able to withstand rugged daily use. Hycar is particularly resistant to permeation against chemical warfare agents. the fully elastic, 6-point head harness promotes easy on-off, easy adjustment, with no hair pulling.

            Standard equipment includes a speaking diaphragm for clear, short-range communications, or add MSA's optional ESP Communication System. The facepiece also features a nosecup, to reduce lens fogging in low temperatures or high humidity conditions. 

Millennium Chemical-Biological Gas Mask

            The Millennium Chemical-Biological Mask is a Hycar version of reliable military-style gas mask (MCU-2/P Mask., used by Air Force in Desert Storm). The mask combines high performance, customized fit, comfort, and cost-efficiency and is ideal for law enforcement and emergency response personnel. The gas mask is NIOSH approved (No. TC-14G-0254) for protection against chloroacetphenone (CN), chlorobenzylidene (CS), P100 particulate efficiency level and particulates. The gas mask does not have NIOSH approval for oleorsin capsicum, the "active" indegredient of OC Tear Gas. The canister provides up to eight hours service time against CN, CS, and OC agents. Please see the table for additional information.

            The Millennium Chemical-Biological Masks re also effective against biological agents, along with the following chemical warfare (CW) agents: GA, GB (Sarin), GD, VX, Mustard, and Lewisite. Testing conducted by MSA and independent laboratories assures that the gas mask and canister meet the requirements for effectiveness against CW agents using the test protocol recommended by the Chemical Agent safety and Health Policy Action Committee (CASHPAC). They are also effective against OC (oleoresin Capsicum) Riot Control Agent and HCN (hydrogen Cyanide), but have not been tested or approved by NIOSH for these applications. Please see table for additional information.

            The Millennium Chemical-Biological Mask is a light-weight respirator with Hycar facepiece (based on a proven facepiece design developed for the U.S. Armed Forces) that's up to 40% lighter than conventional full-face respirators and gives high-performance, customized fit, comfort, and economy and user acceptance. 

            As with Advantage 1000 CBA-RCA Gas Mask the Millennium Gas Mask features a flexible, 1-piece polyurethane lens with a wide field of vision, bonded to a durable Hycar rubber facepiece. Bonding a flexible lens to the facepiece eliminates the need for a rigid lens that can cause uncomfortable pressure points. The facepiece has a wraparound design that minimizes dead-air space and provides good vision. The compact size also permits easy integration with most visored police helmets.

            The facepiece has canister inlet ports on either side of the facepiece. The canister position (NAT) 40 mm thread) can be switched o enable the user to sight a weapon from either shoulder. The use of standard 40 mm thread size provides the options of using a NATO-style gas mask canister. (NIOSH approval valid only with Millennium canister).   

            The Millennium Gas Masks are molded of super-soft black Hycar rubber, a specially formulated combination of natural rubber and synthetic materials. The facepiece of soft and pliable for a snug, comfortable fit. Hycar resists chemical attack and temperature extremes, and is able to withstand rugged daily use. Hycar is particularly resistant to permeation against chemical warfare agents. The fully elastic, 6-point head harness promotes east on-off, easy adjustment with no hair pulling.   

            Standard equipment includes a speaking diaphragm for clear, short-range communications, or add MSA's optional ESP II Communication System. The facepiece also features a nosecup, to reduce lens fogging in low temperatures or high humidity conditions.  

PERFORMANCE OF ADVANTAGE 1000 CBA-RCA/MILLENNIUM CANISTER AGAINST VARIOUS CHEMICAL AGENTS

            MSA's Advantage 1000 CBA-RCA/Millennium Gas Mask Canister has been tested to determine how effectively it can protect an individual against a variety of chemical agents (in accordance with CASHPAC).

            This canister contains a pleated high-efficiency (HEPA) filter to remove aerosols and solid particulates, and an impregnated activated carbon bed to absorb (filter out) gases and liquid vapors. The HEPA filter removes nearly all of the tear gas agents from the inspired airstreams. Any small amount of tear gas agent that passes through the filter is absorbed by the impregnated activated carbon. Sarin (GB), DMMP (a Sarin simulant), and HCN are also effectively absorbed by the carbon bed.

            The challenge agents are listed in column 1; testing conditions and requirements in columns 2,3 and 4; and test results in the last column. The Flow Rate for all challenge agents was 641 Lpm, except for CK, which was 32 Lpm. Temperature was 253 degrees Centigrade.
