Drager PSS 3000 Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus

The Drager PSS 3000 is a new generation of high performing breathing apparatus for firefighters. Combining comfort with exceptional pneumatic performance, it is designed for applications where simplicity and ease of use are key essentials. Lightweight yet robust, and easy to don, this advanced breathing apparatus provides the ultimate in breathing protection.

Today's first responders demand reliability and consistency from their breathing apparatus whatever the environmental conditions. Resulting from years of research and extensive user consultation, the Drager PSS 3000 has been developed to meet these fundamental needs:


Drager PSS 3000 is one of the lightest self contained breathing apparatus carrying system to date.

We have applied the same advanced technology and design philosophy which was derived from our class leading range of short and extended duration professional breathing apparatus. The extremely durable carrying system features our new and innovative ultra lightweight, high strength carbon composite carrying frame which exhibits outstanding thermal, impact and chemical resistance properties.

Suitable for use in all conditions easy and quick to don, the lightweight harness has been specially designed to retain its form over a wide range of environmental temperatures. Utilising materials that have good chemical and abrasion resistance and also meeting the heat and flame requirements of EN137:2006 (Type 2).


By utilising the state-of-the-art pressure mapping technology, we have developed a carrying system which follows the natural contours of the body and therefore provides improved stability and reduced back strain, stress and fatigue. The contoured carrying harness provides maximum comfort at both the shoulders and the waist, but optimizes load distribution comfortably and securely, in line with the body's centre of gravity.

Despite this emphasis on wearing comfort, you can rest assured that we have not compromised on the choice of the most rugged and durable materials available, in order to minimize the impact of the most hostile of environments.


Versatility is the foundation of the Drager PSS series of products. The Drager PSS 3000 enables the wearer to benefit from leading edge breathing protection technology incorporating, the same advanced pneumatic system used in the class leading PSS 7000 - is the choice of pioneering Fire Departments worldwide.

Data Sheet


Both the medium pressure air supply and gauge hoses are integrated into the carrying-frame to reduce the risk of snagging and entanglement, which results in improved security and safety whilst entering and working in confined spaces.

With the ability to re-route these hoses from one side to the other in order to suit customer preferences for gauge access, this design feature also facilitates the easy replacement of each hose.


Quick and uncomplicated to service, the Drager PSS 3000 incorporates a number of unique design features to ensure that downtime, and therefore costs, are kept to a minimum during maintenance. All the major components are simple and quick to remove and re-assemble.

The harness is attached to the carrying frame by an innovative single-piece retention method.

In addition the first stage pressure reducer, integrated into the carrying frame for added protection, can be readily removed.
