Second generation self-contained self-rescuers.
Mining applications of life support technology. Proceedings: Bureau of Mines technology transfer seminar, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, November 20, 1986. Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9134, 1987 Jan; :39-46
It appears to be technologically feasible to develop a second-generation SCSR that is approximately twice the size and weight of an FSR and that has a rated duration of 1 h. This paper summarizes proposed performance criteria, test methods, and approval and certification procedures for second-generation SCSR's. If designed and developed to meet the proposed standards, the resulting SCSR would be safe and reliable, and could be worn by a miner as personal equipment.
