    Exclamation Anybody using Cairns Pioneer SCBA's

    If your department currently uses these airpacks, have you experienced any problems with the speech diaphram breaking out of the face mask? If you have experienced this problem please email me ASAP. Our department is having problems with these masks.

    Our SCBA's were purchased in mid 1998.

    Again, if you have had similar face piece failures please email me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Our department had Carins and we have a long list of problems experienced.

    Maintenance Nightmares.

    We just replaced them with SCOTTs.

    Were the air packs low or high pressure that you have problems with. Ours are high pressure and lots fo problems with the air bottle to pack connections.

    Larry,
    I know you guys use them, what is the popular opinion? Any major or recurring problems? Atlanta has replaced all of their Cairns airpacks from what I understand.

    Wasn't aware that Cairns made a pack. Maybe it was a shortlived experiment?

    Cairns sold the SCBA line a few years back to a seperate company. I can't find any evidence of their current existence, but I also don't remember what they call themselves now.

    The packs were miserable pieces of garbage when we had them. We have since switched to Scott 4.5

    Huh. What do you know. It's always interesting to read these ancient threads.
