The 3M Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) helps provide respiratory protection against dust, mist, fumes, radionuclides and radon daughters.
Lightweight and face-mounted, it uses a high efficiency particulate filter. Ideal for lead and asbestos.
Face-mounted powered air purifying respirators may increase wearer productivity without the need to wear a motorized blower unit at the waist.
Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are motorized systems powered by a battery pack which draw air through a filter or cartridge to provide respiratory protection to the wearer.
The blower unit can be mounted on the waist, face, or head, depending on the system selected.
Potential benefits include:
- Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators.
- Constant flow of air can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer.
- Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer.
- The 3M™ Powerflow™ System delivers a minimum of 4cfm when used with the filter.
- It uses the popular 6000 Series facepiece and its faceshield meets High Impact Requirements of ANSI Z87.1-2003.
- The complete system includes a full facepiece, facepiece-mounted blower/filtrationunit, rechargeable battery, battery charger, high-efficiency particulate filter, and an airflow indicator.
- Approved for use with high efficiency particulate filter only.
