These PAPRs are motorized systems that use a filter to clean ambient air before it is delivered to the breathing zone of the user. A PAPR system typically includes a blower, battery, headpiece and a breathing tube.
Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators
Constant flow of air may help provide a feeling of coolness 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
