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.
NIOSH approved with loose-fitting hoods and a full facepiece to protect against particulates, toxic gases and vapors, or a combination. “Smart” features set flow rates automatically through built-in sensors. Unit offers audible and visual alarms for added worker safety. Audible alarms travel up the breathing tube close to the user’s ear.
Unit incorporates a sleek, low-profile design for user comfort never before offered in a PAPR. All components, including the motor blower, cartridges and battery, are packaged in a single hip-hugging housing. Improved motor blower electronics allow for optimum air flow and filter resistance, while the compact and ergonomic battery pack affords lightweight comfort and fit. Flow control sensors are activated by insertion of the cartridges and breathing hose to the blower housing. The unit automatically adjusts for altitude via an internal pressure switch.
