HEED 3 IS QUICK AND EASY TO REFILL!
HEED 3 is a refillable, fully self-contained breathing device. Models 175-001 and 300-001 come with an always-on regulator that is always ready to deliver live-saving air in an underwater emergency or toxic air environment. Model 175-003 with flexible hose requires a quick twist to turn on the air supply. Included with every HEED 3 is a Dial Gauge Pressure Indicator to give users the ability to quickly read the available air pressure.
HEED 3 should be stored full or with some positive pressure to prevent contaminants from entering the cylinder. Store in a clean, dry environment with optimum temperatures of 50-75ºF for best product performance. Avoid direct sunlight, automobile trunks or other areas subject to temperature extremes. Industry guidelines recommend replacing air in cylinders annually.
