COMBINATION SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS FOR ESCAPE AND PRESSURE DEMAND TYPE C SUPPLIED AIR RESPIRATOR The SCOTT SKA-PAK and SKA-PAK PLUS Escape/Type C respirators are approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as pressure-demand, open circuit, combination self-contained breathing apparatus of either 5, 10, or 15 minute rated duration for escape and Type C supplied air respirator.
