The Air-Mate powered air purifying respirator AMH-12U from 3M incorporates a blower, filter and battery into a compact and lightweight belt-mounted unit for respiratory protection against airborne particulates. Filters are NIOSH-approved for high efficiency and used extensively in pharmaceutical, hospital and public health applications. The head cover gives the user a wide field of vision and directs positive airflow into the breathing zone. Can be worn with limited facial hair and glasses. Battery can be charged either within unit or externally for up to eight hours of battery service per charge.

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
