Luxfer, the most trusted name for high-pressure gas cylinders worldwide and the world’s largest manufacturer of high-pressure composite and aluminium cylinders, will be show-casing several their highly acclaimed ECLIPSE cylinders on Interspiro’s stand (D71) at the Emergency Services Show (ESS) taking place at Birmingham NEC on 19/20th September.
Interspiro, which develops premium respiratory protection and equipment for firefighting, emergency escape, diving and rescue operations, has been using Luxfer self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and life-support cylinders for over 15 years. The company supplies military, police, industries, shipping companies and rescue services all over the world with exceptional products for extreme situations. Luxfer is the world’s most widely used cylinder brand for these applications, with their products designed and tested to meet or exceed all applicable global standards.
Luxfer’s launch of the ECLIPSE cylinder at the US FDIC exhibition in April was received with global acclaim. ECLIPSE is an acronym for Extra-lightweight Cylinders by Luxfer for Industry Professionals in SCBA Environments. Renowned for being at the forefront of technology and for their innovative products, Luxfer pioneered the first significant SCBA cylinder design change in over twenty years; resulting in the ECLIPSE being the world’s lightest composite cylinder for SCBA. The cylinders are based on a next-generation aerospace-grade carbon fibre-only overwrap design; reinforcing the cylinder’s lightweight aluminium liner while maintaining the highest safety, reliability and durability standards.
The ECLIPSE cylinder represents a step-change in SCBA design and capability, allowing SCBA professionals to operate with more comfort and freedom, whilst retaining enhanced levels of safety and capability. This latest weight-saving design enhances performance and minimizes weight-related health risks for firefighters, emergency personnel and SCBA industry professionals. The ECLIPSE is up to 20 percent lighter than comparable aluminium-lined (Type 3) composite cylinders and up to 3 percent lighter than plastic-lined (Type 4) cylinders used primarily in Europe. No sacrifice has been made in strength, durability or safety, while remaining compliant with all industry standards.
Luxfer are very proud to have the ECLIPSE cylinders on display with Interspiro – a highly respected company to whom they have been supplying cylinders for almost two decades. To see the Luxfer ECLIPSE cylinders, visit Interspiro at Stand D71, and also visit www.luxfer.com/cylinders.
