New Dräger escape hood series

Hydrocarbon Engineering,


Dräger has launched a re-engineered escape hood portfolio, the Parat series.

The new hoods are designed to protect oil and gas industry users from toxic industrial and fire related gases, vapours and particles for at least 15 minutes.

All hoods have a protective seal on the opening of the packaging, indicating whether it has been opened. The filter is sealed tightly with two filter plugs and once the packaging is opened, the filter plugs are automatically released and the hood is ready for use.
