The 3M Air-Mate PAPR can filter fumes, mists, vapors, dusts and gases, similar to regular air-purifying respirators.  The respirator uses a blower to force the ambient air through air-purifying elements to the inlet covering.  They are perfect for those working in clean rooms at hospitals and labs.  3M respirators are very lightweight and durable.

Featured with the 3M Air-Mate is a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter.  HEPA filters can filter out particles as small as three-tenths (0.3) micron at 99.97% efficiency.

Warning! - PAPRs cannot not be used while in a oxygen-deficient environment.  A Supplied Air Respirator System (SAR) is required when oxygen levels are below 19.5%.
