Miele offers fire services a safe and simple method of reprocessing breathing apparatus in a special-purpose washer: The PG 8063 'Safety' washes breathing masks and air regulators hygienically using multiple intakes of fresh water and by providing all materials a secure hold in new special baskets. This machine-based approach saves breathing apparatus managers lots of time and effort. It also reduces the risk of physical contact with contaminants.
Speed and special-purpose programmes are of the essence when the protective apparel worn by fire-fighters need washing, drying and reproofing after an emergency call. Washing machines and tumble dryers from Miele ensure the thorough reprocessing of multi-ply textiles with retro-reflective strips whilst preserving their value – now with a new range of load capacities.
A road accident involving an HGV in pouring rain with sacks of charcoal ripped open and strewn across the road: After this assignment, the protective suits worn by 30 fire-fighters were as black as coal, coated with dust which stuck like pitch. The lads from the Lüneburg brigade in northern Germany can thank their Miele washing machine from the latest model generation that this soil was removed in its entirety. These programmes were developed specifically for fire-fighting apparel involving specialised fabrics to shield against heat and water which need reproofing after washing. These machine have proved their worth over the past two years in practical trials.
The PG 8592 washer-disinfector from Miele offers ample space for intubation material and breathing hoses. The matching load carrier, which is modular in design, can be loaded with the full range of anaesthetic equipment used by rescue services.
