This lightweight, comfortable respirator hood helps provide respiratory protection for a wide range of applications. Used with 3M™ Air-Mate™ and Breathe Easy™ Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) and 3M™ Supplied Air Hood Systems BE-Series.
Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are motorized systems powered by a battery pack which draw air through a filter or cartridge to provide respiratory protection to the wearer. The blower unit can be mounted on the waist, face, or head, depending on the system selected. Potential benefits include:
(bul) Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators. (bul) Constant flow of air can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer (bul) Loose-fitting headgear options provide respiratory protection without the need for a tight faceseal or fit testing (bul) Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer
