"Negotiating" gas masks arrived in the chemical protection units of the Strategic Missile Forces

The chemical defense divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces have been equipped with the latest portable breathing apparatus PDA-3, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

"Negotiating" gas masks arrived in the chemical protection units of the Strategic Missile Forces

It is noted that the equipment is intended for emergency protection of the respiratory organs and the skin. When you start the PDA-3 for 20 seconds, it emits at least 10 liters of oxygen into the mask, and then absorbs exhaled moisture and carbon dioxide, supplying oxygen instead. The device is manufactured ready to use and does not require fitting.

The mask allows you to negotiate both by voice and by means of communication
- added to the military department.

With the improvement of protective equipment in the Strategic Missile Forces, much attention is paid to reducing the weight of insulating materials while increasing their protective capabilities.

    The chemical protection units have sunk into oblivion 25 years ago. Now it is a division of the Russian Chemical Safety Bureau. And, in general, who wrote this article? Man is far from the topic. Let him put on a mask and I’ll run him 10 liters of oxygen there. And I bet that the first will explode, a rubber helmet-mask, or his lungs. As I understand it, this is an insulating type gas mask. A shiny metal canister is a regenerative cartridge. In addition to the mask, there should be a bag (at the IDA of the previous generation, it was in the form of a life buoy). That is where the first 10 liters of air gets. And then, a person breathes, emits carbon dioxide. This gas, passing through a regenerative cartridge, is converted into oxygen as a result of a chemical reaction. And further around.

      10 liters of oxygen will turn the lungs into ashes. Similar systems (only more massive) have been used by firefighters, mountain rescuers, military, gas rescuers for decades. It’s just a more compact and mobile complex

    Does he protect against ruthenium? And then we would be useful in Chelyab.

          You exaggerate! Ruthenium alone is not toxic or toxic ... except for higher ruthenium oxide! The question is, why do you produce it? and if you need to worry about ruthenium after processing some fuel, then completely about other heavy metals, their salts and derivatives ...

            Every year, in the vicinity of Mayak, measurements are taken of everything that is pleasing, and each time they say that it’s not just that it’s dangerous to live, but just there, but people who drink alcohol live a little longer. Almost all deaths from cancer.

              In general, it is understandable .. ruthenium has nothing to do with it, or rather, it doesn’t have such consequences from it .. but that's what it is produced from according to a certain technology quite ...

    It looks like an apparatus for underwater driving a tank. And the principle of action is the same.

    Do not understand! And the prime minister has not yet held meetings with the government in this gas mask?

    What bullshit Min Defense does not transmit for simulation. Well, neither strategic missile forces can do without them. All equipment and weapons are delivered to all in dilapidated warehouses or to the street. Enrages simply. After 5-7 years, under such operating conditions, the first Yars will already become worthless. And we will shoot gas masks.
