NIOSH-approved cartridge used for respiratory protection against certain organic vapors. Also operates as a high efficiency particulate filter. Used with the 3M GVP PAPR.
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:
(bul) Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators. (bul) Constant flow of air can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer (bul) Loose-fitting headgear options provide respiratory protection without the need for a tight faceseal or fit testing (bul) Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer
