This powered air purifying respirator helps provide respiratory protection against dust, mist, fumes, radionuclides and radon daughters. Lightweight and face-mounted, it uses a high efficiency particulate filter. Ideal for lead and asbestos.

Face-mounted PAPRs provide all the features of powered air purifying respirators: increased wearer comfort and compatibility with glasses. The respirator helps provide respiratory protection and may increase wearer productivity without the need to wear a motorized blower unit at the waist. 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
- Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer

The 3M™ Powerflow™ System delivers a minimum of 4cfm when used with the filter. It uses the popular 6000 Series facepiece and its faceshield meets impact and penetration requirements of ANSI Z87.1-2003. The complete system includes the medium full facepiece, 6800DIN, motor blower unit, battery pack, and flow meter. Approved for use with high efficiency particulate filter only.

- Eight-hour battery
- Lightweight and well-balanced
- Ideal for lead, asbestos and other hazardous particulates

Not sure what size 3M respirator mask to wear?

3M does not have an official size chart. OSHA requires all sizing be determined only by a Fit Test, which requires the user to wear the mask and perform this test. 3M does state that a Medium size mask is meant to be a "one size fits most", with few people needing a small size or a large size. Per 3M, approximately 80% of the population will fall under a medium size, as it is possible to fit in both a small and medium, or a medium and large.
