This powered air purifying respirator 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 the medium full facepiece, 6800DIN, motor blower unit, battery pack, and flow indicator. Approved for use with high efficiency particulate filter only.
- Up to eight hours of battery service
- Lightweight and well-balanced
- Ideal for lead, asbestos, mold and other hazardous particulates
