Andres Industries wins bid for Bundeswehr tender

Even though we are mainly known to the military and authorities for our thermal imaging devices, today we have a different success story for a change: It concerns the German Armed Forces and the oxygen self-rescuers we sell.

The German army had already awarded us the contract for our KSB-60 In the meantime, 110 devices have already been delivered.

In contrast to conventional gas masks, self-rescuers offer the advantage of an air supply that is independent of the circulating air. This means that it really doesn't matter how little oxygen is left in the ambient air. Even if there is no oxygen left at all, this is not a problem. The user breathes in the same air over and over again, which is automatically regenerated by the system. This also ensures much better protection against toxins than with a gas mask, where the filter used is very important. Gas masks are particularly problematic if you don't use the right filter for the poisonous gases. In the worst case, you get no protection at all.

An O2 self-rescuer can therefore be a life-saving joker for short-term use. For example, in the event of vehicle fires or chemical accidents. It is able to regenerate the patient's own breathing air for at least 30 minutes; the KSB60 can even do this for 120 minutes, which can be extended to up to 360 minutes if breathing is calm enough.

In contrast to a compressed air breathing apparatus, a self-rescuer has the additional advantage of being significantly lighter and more compact and can therefore be carried on the person at all times. The purchase costs are also significantly lower at less than €500. The maximum lifespan is 10 years. In contrast to a compressed air breathing apparatus, no MOT inspection is required during this time.

The self-rescuer is also available for civilian users.

All functions of the device and the application can be found here
