Powered Air Respirators (PAPR)
Powered Air Respirators (PAPR) use a motorized air source to filter and clean ambient air before it is delivered to the user. PAPR systems can use many different filters such as HEPA, Vapor protection or simple particulate filtration. Powered Air Respirators delivery a cooler and easier breathing experience than standard respirators.
Gas, Vapor & Particulate PAPR systemsPAPR systems that can filter out Gas, Vapor and Particulates include the 3M GVP PAPR and 3M BreathEasy PAPR systems. Both of these systems offer a wide selection of mounting and headgear options. With the GVP system offering the widest range of choices for comfort, protection and easy of use. The GVP series also offers the L-5 and L-7 PAPR series that are either bumpcap or hardhat respectively.
Welding PAPR systemsWelding applications and PAPR systems go hand in hand with comfort, and added productivity. With traditional helmets and 3M dustmasks, extended welding sessions can be hot and tiring. With a speedglas Adflo system, welders can enjoy top level welding protection, and a cooler, more comfortable welding experience. And when you are more comfortable, it's easier to concentrate on quality work!
HazMat PAPR systemsHomeland Security and HazMat responders need protection from a variety of hazardous materials. From Vapors to WMD's. The 3M First Responders PAPR full face respirators combined with Tychem products can provide effective barriers to toxic chemicals.
Hooded PAPR systemsHooded PAPR systems provide the user with a lightweight positive air pressure area that keeps filtered air in, and pushes contaminated air out.
FaceMask PAPR systemsFacemask systems provide protection by directly sealing against the face of the user, and offer positive seal protection against contaminants.
