Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Has any one had problems with the SCOTT NXG7 quick attach bottles? We are buying new paks and this is one option. Our question is will they last?

We've had ours for around 4 years with no problems. The only problem is an inter-operability one. Most departments still use threaded connectors.
We use them in my volunteer dept. and there is a problem in that you cant inter-change with other departments who dont have that specific style of cylinder. The only other issue we see occasionally is that they may freeze up and not release from the air pack in really cold weather. This doesn't seem to occur often but has happened in bitterly cold weather. Fortunately, here in Virginia, we don't have exceptionally cold winters
No problems here
