FlexAir PAPR System

The SafetyTech FlexAir PAPR System is a compact, lightweight Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System with a Lifetime Lithium Battery inside the waist mounted blower. The flexible design permits the use of 2 HE (High Efficiency) particulate or 3 combination cartridges for protection against organic vapors and acid gases (OV/AG/HE). Workers are protected by having contaminated air purified by filter media mounted on the PAPR blower unit and delivered via a lightweight breathing tube to the users head cover.

It provides vital protection for the eyes and respiratory tract, accommodates facial hair and eliminates fit testing. Compact and less than 1.4 pounds, the FlexAir provides a constant flow of purified air and features a dedicated low flow alarm with constant warning and an intermittent low battery alarm with 10 minute warning. Other benefits include “easy decontamination” design, up to 8 hours of continuous work time on a single charge, dependable rapid charge performance and a choice of hood styles and colors.
