What is a PAPR?

A powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) is a portable battery-powered air filtration system. The system filters out contaminants and particulates in the immediate environment to provide the user with clean filtered air, which is then powered through a breathing tube connected to a loose or tight-fitting respirator.

Ideal settings for PAPRs

Commonly used in the manufacturing industry, PAPRs are suitable for any working environment where unrestricted movement is essential, and eye, face, or hearing protection is required. Combining multiple forms of PPE into the one system makes PAPRs ideal for not only industrial workplaces, but also healthcare settings too. With complete portability, experience an uncompromised range of movement while receiving clean, filtered air with a PAPR.

How can a PAPR help protect you and your team?

PAPRs are a positive pressure respirator. This enables the user to breathe as they normally would as the air supply is propelled into the users breathe zone through its fan. This innovative approach enables an advanced level of respiratory protection as the HE filters utilized offer a greater filtration capacity than negative pressure respirators. The result, a safer, more comfortable, and productive team.
