The FlexAir™ PAPR is a compact, lightweight Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System with onboard Lithium-Ion Battery installed in the waist-mounted blower. The flexible design permits the use of 2 HE (High Efficiency) particulate filters or 3 combination cartridges for protection against organic vapors, acid gases, ammonia, formaldehyde and methylamine. Workers are protected by having contaminated air purified by filtration media mounted on the PAPR blower unit and delivered via a lightweight breathing hose to the user’s head cover. We offer a complete line of NIOSH approved and OSHA compliant Respiratory Protection Solutions. Call us today for expert consultation for a solution to your specific needs.

No Fit Testing Required. Reduces risk of respiratory illness. Accommodates facial hair and prescription lenses. Increased production and longer work time on a single battery charge. Can be used in a 2– filter HE configuration for Biological or Particulate Protection or 3– cartridge configuration for protection against organic vapors, acid gases and particulates (OV/AG/HE). Utilizes universal 40mm filter port threads and wide availability of filter media. Independent low-flow and low battery alarms permit safe and timely exit from contaminated areas. Universal head cover size reduce cost and inventory.

The FlexAir™ PAPR System features the latest innovations in PAPR design. Microprocessor controlled. Lifetime rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (charged on unit). The compact rapid battery charger is a universal Li-Ion battery charger that can be ganged on a simple power strip. Lightweight and compact PAPR blower. Exceeds NIOSH airflow requirements: &0042;170 lpm (liters per minute). Independent low-flow and low battery alarms.

The FlexAir PAPR provides exceptional respiratory protection, especially in situations where wearing a tight fittimg mask are not optional. It allows the user to have long hair, facial hair, or glasses without effecting its protective capabilities. Loose fitting PAPR systems reduce the amount of burden on organizations due to not having to perform regular fit testing.
