How do PAPR systems and filters work?
A PAPR (powered air purifying respirator) uses a blower to pass contaminated air through a HEPA filter, which removes the contaminant and supplies purified air to a facepiece.
What do PAPRs protect against?
Like other types of respiratory protective equipment, powered air purifying respirators (PAPR) protect the wearer from inhaling dust, smoke, fumes, mists, gases, sprays, vapors, chemicals, aerosols, and other airborne contaminants.
How long do battery packs for PAPR systems work?
Generally, a fully charged rechargeable PAPR battery will on average last 7-8 hours. *Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications.
The Honeywell North PR500 PAPR features a front mount option, which provides an alternate option for users who may prefer the comfort of not having the PAPR blower on their belt. This lightweight unit will not slow worker efficiency and the battery pack is contoured for better fit.
The 3M PowerFlow PAPR features a constant flow of air which can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer. It is lightweight, well balanced with a compact design that fits closely.
