OptimAir® Mask-Mounted PAPR
Designed for abatement, nuclear, lead and other hazardous particulate environments. The PAPR filters particulates from ambient air and provides a constant flow of respirable air to Advantage® 3100, Ultravue® or Ultra Elite® Facepieces. The mask-mounted motor/blower with HEPA filter has a low profile design that enhances user maneuverability and simplifies decontamination.
The PAPR includes a small, lightweight, water-resistant nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack that will operate for 8 hours of continuous use. Weighing only 12.5 oz (354.4 g), it measures only 3-in x 5-in x 1-in (7.6 cm x 12.7 cm x 2.5 cm). The low profile unit fits close to the wearer’s body. The sealed battery pack is water-resistant for easy shower decontamination. Another advantage: NiMH batteries do not have the “memory effect” associated with NiCad batteries. The standard Dual-Rate Battery Charger will recharge a fully discharged battery in less than 3 hours. Metal connectors on cable ends provide a durable and secure fit to the battery and blower housing. NIOSH approved as mask-mounted PAPR and also approved as a negative-pressure APR for egress.
