Why Elmridge Protection does not list how long their iEvac Escape Hood will last in a fire or a CBRN event.
Side Note: This is an important topic that you should understand for any type of air filtration device you are considering.
There are 2 very important reason why there is no time limits given – and why you should be cautious of the ones that do.
Reason #1: Environmental Variables: There are no [standardized] levels for the amount of particulates in the air [dirt, dust, smoke, etc.],or the levels of toxic gases in a fire or the concentration of dangerous agents in a CBRN event. Every event will be different.
All of the escape hoods basically work the same way. As you breathe in, the bad air outside of the mask is drawn in through the filters, which does 2 things;
- Removes the small harmful particulates in the air, [smoke, dust, and other air borne contaminants] - similar to the way a particulate filter works.
- The air then passes through a chemical canister that removes the dangerous chemicals in the air, [i.e. Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Cyanide, the CBRN Agents and many other chemicals].
How long these filters will be effective against these toxins is directly related to the concentration of the contaminants in the air that you are in.
- The denser the particulates are in the air [dirt, smoke, dust, etc.] the faster the filters will get clogged and the effectiveness of the filters will be diminished.
- The higher the concentration of dangerous chemicals in the air – the faster the active chemicals in the canisters will be consumed thereby reducing the effective protection from the canisters.
- Note: The iEvac Escape Hood uses a 2 Filter/Canister design which greatly increases the usable time duration of the Escape Hood.
Reason #2: The People Variables: Your physical condition and the exertion level you are going through while you are wearing the mask will also greatly impact how long the Escape Hood will be effective.
One thing that you can be assured of is; if you need to escape a dangerous area - you will be working and exerting yourself during the exiting process.
The harder you work – the harder you breathe – the more air [oxygen] you need.
For these 2 main reasons- you need to take the “Protection Times” listed [when they are listed] on these Escape Hoods as general guidelines and not as specific time limits.
It’s best to look at these products as what they are designed to do: To buy you valuable (limited) time when you need to ESCAPE from the DANGER ZONE to where the SAFETY ZONE is located.
Once you put one of these devices on – your #1 Priority becomes: ‘To Get Out – AND – To Get Out as Fast as you Can!” Do not think you can use these products to fight a fire or to rescue people. They are not designed to that. They are designed for 1-thing and 1-thing only: To Get Out.
The iEvac is a remarkable escape hood because it can be used for protection in BOTH Fire conditions and CBRN events.
Other escape hoods only offer protection from either fire events OR CBRN events. When seconds count – you don ‘t have the time to determine if the escape hood you have – will work in the situation you are in. With the iEvac- there is no decision to be made – just grab it and put it on. You know it will work.
The iEvac Escape Hood was tested by the “US Army Research, Development & Engineering Command Edgewood Chemical Biological Center”, for both the noxious chemicals found in the smoke of fires and the dangerous chemical agents associated with CBRN events. The iEvac Escape Hood passed their rigid testing and was awarded certification to American Standard ASTM E2952.
