This belt-mounted powered air purifying respirator assembly includes components needed to make a complete, comfortable PAPR system. Offers high airflow to the worker. Comfort belt is adjustable to fit waists from 26 inches to 54 inches.
The GVP 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 GVP allows the wearer to choose from a wide selection of filters that offer flexibility and freedom to work in a variety of industrial environments. These systems are compatible with many different styles of headgear ranging from lightweight hoods, bumpcaps, hard hats, helmets and full facepiece respirators. 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
