3M™ PAPRs deliver filtered air, all shift long, for respiratory protection and comfort your employees will want to wear.
Loose fitting hoods and helmets eliminate the need for fit testing. Tight fitting facepieces used with PAPR assemblies are required to be fit tested.
Some of the 3M PAPR systems provide the option for combining respiratory, head, eye and face protection, that can be customized for almost any work environment.
From heavy industrial, construction and transportation to pharmaceuticals and healthcare, 3M PAPRs can be used in multiple environments.
The blower unit delivers filtered air to the system while also housing the battery, filter and filter cover. Review factors such as work environment and shift duration, then choose from the appropriate blower unit configuration that is right for your hazards.
