Scott Health & Safety have recently alerted their customers to a possible fault on the Front Fitting of Phantom Vision Mask assemblies. The fault may be present in the form of an axial split along the wall of the exhale valve port. The image in
figure 2 shows the split. If the split is present, it will be in the vicinity indicated in this image. To check this remove the inner mask and blower as done for after use cleaning.
We have requested that our customers return any masks in this condition to our service centres for replacement of the front fitting and testing – free of charge.
Operations have carried out improvements to the front fitting manufacturing process to eliminate this fault. All replacement fittings will have been produced following these improvements.
Should you be requested for details, the replacement components are: 2018802 (1 off) – Front Port and mini rings
PLEASE NOTE: Phantom Vision Powered Respirators showing this crack have been tested by the British Standards Institute and still conform to BS EN 12942:1998+A2:2008 and therefore we do not believe there is any danger in using these masks.
