3M™ Powered Air Purifying Respirator Nickel Cadmium Battery Pack, Respiratory Protection GVP-111 1/cs
This nickel cadmium battery pack powers the 3M™ Breathe Easy Powered Air Purifying Respirators for eight hours with 1000 charge/discharge cycles.
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"
