Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)
- This device is known as a PAPR- Powered Air Purifying Respirator. It has two fans which create positive air pressure. The air is purified before it reaches the fans by a prefilter and a HEPA filter. The air pressure prevents unfiltered air from entering the chamber. Expired air naturally leaks out since the chamber is not airtight. For regulated escape of exhaled air, there is an exhalation filter vent on the bottom of the chamber.
- The visor has a plastic isolation curtain attached to it. The curtain is held reasonably tight against the face.
- A PAPR with a loose-fitting hood or face piece does not require fit testing like a P2/N95 mask; facial hair will not be a problem. The positive air pressure has a cooling effect on the face and reduces condensation on the visor. Since the air inside is purified, a face mask is not necessary.
- OrangeDot’s PAPR is lightweight, face shield mounted and avoids the need of a bulky, heavy fan and battery unit retained on a belt around the waist. The two fans work effectively and with much less noise. No air tube is necessary. The visor, isolation curtain and vent/filter are one unit and are disposable. The HEPA filters inside the device can be changed every 3-6 months. The prefilters can be changed after every work session if required.
- Powered by a 5V 2A power bank.
- A surgical cap can be worn to enhance the air seal around the device.
- Option of a 5W LED headlight
