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.
Protect law enforcement and military personnel from a variety of respiratory hazards with this full line of CBRN and riot control gas masks. Featuring flexible lenses, wider field of view, permeation-resistant construction and built-in speaking diaphragms, these masks provide protection with a comfortable fit and superior visibility. Available in a variety of styles and configurations.
Our lightweight Chin-Type Gas Masks use a replaceable canister to offer strong protection against particulate matter, vapors and gases. The small canister and comfortable facepiece allow for downward head movement and high ease-of-use. Note: Not meant for fire fighting.
Engineered to provide thorough, quantitative fit tests, our full line of specially modified facepiece assemblies offer quality construction and accurate responses. Each of our probed facepieces is equipped with a sampling line and a clothing clip to hold the sampling line. They also feature a built-in probe assembly, which feature solid brass probes. In our half-facepiece models, we attach the probe to the body of the respirator. Full-facepiece respirators are probed through the lens and sealed with a neoprene washer and brass fittings. For existing Ultravue® facepieces, our probed lenses come completely assembled with the same brass probe, sealing hardware and sampling line as the probed full facepieces.
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.
Combining state-of-the-art features with MSA's precision engineering, the Ultra Elite full-face mask is our top model in this range. The ergonomic design makes this a comfortable unit, while the 5-point harness makes it easy to put it on or take it off. The distortion-free coated lens provides a wide field of vision, while the unique airflow prevents lens misting. The face blank has a single-sealing flange and comes in rubber or silicone, while the speech diaphragm makes communication easy to discern. The model has more than 40 different versions, making it the perfect mask for many different applications.
