Development of a modular hazardous environmental protective ensemble, for Environmental Protection Agency Personnel involved in the clean up of hazardous materials spills. It contains all the components necessary to isolate the user form a toxic environment. Its modular design provides the user the option to select different combinations of components in the ensemble to best accomplish his mission tasks over a climatic range of -17.8C -0.04 F to 100.4 F. Body cooling, needed for operating in hot environments is accomplished by the use of a modular liquid-cooled capvest. Originator supplied keywords include Environment protection Hazardous material Chemical spill, Protective suit, Personal safety equipment Spill response personnel, Liquids Vapor Aerosols Breathing apparatus, Microclimate Heat stroke Body heat regulating Toxicological ventilation Cryogenic Open circuit breathing Closed circuit breathing Carbon dioxide Oxygen Positive pressure Respiratory cycle Liquid- cooled Heat Balance Acclimatize Industrial health and safety.
