The Breathe Easy powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) from 3M features an all-in-one design that provides both comfort and safety. It is a lightweight, easy-to-use solution to respiratory protection where particulate contaminants exist. Belt-mounted PAPRs provide all the features of powered air purifying respirators: increased wearer comfort, no fit test requirements for certain headgear, and compatibility with glasses.

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

    This belt-mounted powered air purifying respirator assembly includes:

  • Motor Blower 022-00-03R01
  • Battery Pack BP-15 (Nickel Metal Hydride)
  • Belt 520-02-90R01
  • Airflow Indicator 520-01-21
