PBE

The PBE is a closed-circuit breathing apparatus designed to protect the wearer’s eyes and respiratory tract in an emergency.

PBE Features

The PBE hood envelops the wearer’s head and provides oxygen with a demand-based air regeneration system. This system is a chemical process that uses the unique characteristics of potassium superoxide (KO2).
