Air-Purifying Respirators (APR)
The low-profile OptimAir® TL Powered Air-Purifying Respirator combines state-of-the-art design with superior "smart" features. The unit packages the motor blower, cartridges, and battery in a single hip-hugging design for lightweight comfort and fit. The low profile motor blower offers optimal airflow through a crushproof breathing tube, while the ergonomic battery pack allows for free movement within confined spaces. The unit automatically adjusts flow rates for altitude via an internal pressure sensor, while the cutting-edge design permits fast, accurate change-out of cartridges, hoods and batteries. The standard kit includes motor blower, smart charger, standard battery, hose, and decon belt.
Specifically designed for our Advantage® 3000, Advantage® 4000, Ultravue®, or Ultra Elite® facepiece models, the OptimAir® MM2K powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) is precision-crafted to offer long life, high performance, and low maintenance. The compact, easy-to-decontaminate model uses a rechargeable NiMH battery for 8 hours of continuous use, while a dual-rate smart charger fully powers a discharged battery in less than three hours. The water-resistant HEPA filter helps protect against particulate contaminants. The light blower attaches to the facepiece, while the Type HE Optifilter® Cartridges remove particulates.
With its industry-leading motor-blower and constantly filtered airflow, the belt-mounted Responder CBRN PAPR is ideal for first responders, military, and special ops personnel who require non-IDLH respiratory protection for up to 8 hours. The unit offers a choice of two MSA gas mask CBRN facepieces and three proprietary cartridges designed for CBRN, particulate and poisonous gases or vapors. The unit's constant airflow helps a user stay physically alert and focused, while also preventing fogging in the facepiece. Batteries can be "hot-swapped," and the blower's EMI shield ensures there is no interference with radio communications.
