Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs)

A powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) is a type of respirator that delivers continuous flow of filtered air to the breathing zone of the wearer.  PAPR systems consist of a headgear (a full-face mask or hood), a motor blower fan, a particulate filter or combination cartridge, and a battery pack.  These components work together to deliver breathable air into the headgear that is free of airborne particulates and/or other harmful contaminants depending on the type of filter or cartridge used.

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.
