VTN Mobile Breathing Air Systems

While performing maintenance and repair work on industrial installations, the use of a suitable self-contained breathing apparatus often is a key condition, especially if this work is being performed in enclosed spaces.
In certain cases, the use of a self-contained breathing apparatus alone will be insufficient because of the duration of the work. In these cases, external breathing air facilities with a significantly bigger breathing air capacity are required.

To meet the demand for these high-performance breathing air facilities, VTN has developed an extensive and high-quality range of mobile breathing air facilities in recent years. They vary from breathing air trolleys to life support units, which are suitable for installation in a truck or container. All of these products are designed to be suitable for daily use in severe conditions, taking into account the end users’ wishes.

All mobile breathing air facilities designed and manufactured by VTN have an official CE approval mark through Lloyd’s Register and they all meet the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU. It will therefore come as no surprise that, based on their proven quality and user-friendliness, all of these VTN breathing air products have found their way to many well-known industrial (supply) companies and the associated specialist rental companies in the Netherlands and – by now – abroad.

VTN VULCAN Zero Emission Mobile Combo Breathing Air Unit

This new electric breathing air combo-system is the first complete zero emission combo-unit and can be used multifunctionally.

FEATURES & ADVANTAGES

The VTN VULCAN breathing air system can be used multifunctionally. The unit uses either the electric compressor or the high-pressure cylinders for the air supply, so even if the electrical power is temporarily unavailable, one can continue to use the unit.
It is possible to work with so-called free flow suits or welding helmets with the VTN VULCAN, because the air supply of the unit is approximately  300 liters/minute per line. Naturally, working with overpressure face pieces is also no problem.

In addition to the standard version of the VTN VULCAN, there is also the option to build in a digital control panel so you can view all the information in a well-organized manner. But that is not all, you can also log all the available data per user, such as deployment time, air consumption and whether there have been any alarms.
On top of that you can also access the VTN VULCAN unit from the office using an app on your telephone, iPad or computer. You can view all the available information in this app, which makes it very easy to manage the VTN VULCAN remotely.

MOBILE BREATHING AIR COMBI UNIT VTN JUPITER

The complete breathing air combi unit – if easy operation and optimum safety must be guaranteed for up to 4 users.

FEATURES & ADVANTAGES

The JUPITER Life Support Unit is designed to guarantee maximum safety for up to 4 simultaneous breathing air users by making use of a primary and a secondary breathing air system. The entire breathing air system of the Jupiter also has a CE marking in accordance with the PED 2014/68/EU.

The primary breathing air supply is fed by a heavy-duty low-pressure compressor in combination with a Donaldson breathing air filter unit. The latter ensures that optimum air quality in accordance with EN 12021 is guaranteed. For the secondary breathing air system, the so-called back-up system, two 50 litre / 350 bar breathing air storage cylinders are used. Both breathing air systems operate fully independently from each other.

The aluminium control panel specially designed for the JUPITER with engraved diagrams and text makes it very easy to use for the operator, plus it provides clear relevant information at a glance. All valves, manometers and flowmeters are installed in this control panel.  Furthermore, the JUPITER breathing air combi unit has various pressure sensors and a gas detection system to continuously measure the quality of the air entering the compressor. If the pressures are incorrect or dirty air is detected by the gas detection system, the life support system will automatically switch to the back-up system and trigger a clear alarm signal.
