It has been some years since B/E Aerospace Systems issued their product update for their OXYCREW Portable Breathing Equipment, which resulted in the part E28180-10 becoming the E28180-20 part. With -10 models now reaching end of life with aircraft operators the familiarity of crew with the operation of the PBE in training can raise questions.
"Due to supply chain robustness concerns and part availability we have carefully reviewed all major sub suppliers and their performance. Based on the result it has been decided that we will switch some materials used for manufacture of the OXYCREW to prevent from material becoming obsolete. The performance of the new material will be equal or better that that of the previous material.
The above changes are driving a minor design change, which will require a part number roll.
|Old Part Number||New Part Number|
The new OXYCREW will be identical in form, fit and function. Therefore no additional training is required if the previous OXYCREW is used. The dimensions of the smoke hood and stowage box as well as the donning and doffing procedure are also identical to the previous OXYCREW.
With conclusion of all qualification activities EASA granted ETSO authorisation EASA.210.10033740 on February 8th 2011 to B/E Aerospace Systems for OXYCREW E28180-XX-YYYY - Series."
