  • Multi gas and vapor cartridge with high efficiency (HE) particulate protection
  • Effective against range of chemical warfare agents

This NIOSH-approved cartridge helps provide high efficiency respiratory protection in environments containing toxic industrial chemicals. Use with the RRPAS 6000 Series facepieces or BE-10 Series hood powered supplied air respirator systems.

NIOSH-approved cartridge used for Breathe Easy systems from 3M for respiratory protection against: organic vapor, acid gas (sulfur dioxide, chlorine and hydrogen chloride), ammonia/methylamine, hydrogen fluoride, chlorine dioxide, and formaldehyde. Operates as a high efficiency particulate filter, and can also filter a wide range of chemical warfare agents such as: nerve, mustard, tear and blood agents; chlorine, phosgene, chloropicrin, and diphenylchloroarsine.

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:

  • Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators
  • Constant flow of air can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer
  • Loose-fitting headgear options provide respiratory protection without the need for a tight faceseal or fit testing
  • Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer
