How it works
An introduction to cleaning
Follow the 6 steps of the cleaning circle
Step 1 - Inbound logistics and registration of contaminated equipment
After an incident all contaminated fire fighters personal protective equipment is transported in closed containers to the professional workshop service. The task: Offloading, registration, and validation of approval of cylinders and then forwarding all delivered items to the first station in the workshop cycle.
Step 2 - Breathing apparatus cleaning and drying
Follow the step-by-step process, starting with the manual pre-washing of the backplate assembly, than the machine cleaning with the pressurized pneumatics preventing water ingress, and final drying phase. Service technicians should wear appropriate breathing and body protection to avoid indirect contamination doing this work.
Step 3 - Full face masks cleaning and drying
Full face mask are contaminated 2-fold, from the incident site and also by the wearer himself by his body fluids. Therefore the cleaning of the full face mask has also an hygienic term. Learn how this works without health risks for the technician, supported by a modern workshop system.
Step 4 - Cylinder filling room
Follow the process of refilling the breathing air cylinders with respiratory gas, using a filling panel, quick connections and an air quality monitoring system. Refilled cylinders are approved, sealed and marked as “filled”. Doing so, the cylinder is ready again to merge with a SCBA for the next use.
Step 5 - Testings and reconditioning
After completion of the cleaning and drying process, the equipment is transferred to the clean area of the service workshop. The step by step process continues with the reassembling of mask, LDV and backplates. Afterwards the components are tested on an automated test bench supported by documentation software.
Step 6 - Outbound tracking and logistics
Prior to transport back to the fire station all cleaned fire PPE has to be identified, registered, sealed and packed for safe shipment. The registration and documentation for later tracking can effectively be done with a scanner. A workshop software solution collects all information for seamless documentation.
