Ventilated Breathing Protection System for Welders

Optrel has introduced the optrel e3000X powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR). Featuring advancements in performance and air-flow sensor technology, the e3000X PAPR is certified to TH3-removing 99.8% of harmful airborne participles to deliver clean, filtered breathing air to welders. "Optimized performance design and sensor technology enable three levels of airflow (240, 210, or 170 liters per minute) at twice the efficiency of previous models for up to 18 hours of battery life," said a company spokesperson.

e3000X PAPR features include:

  • An adjustable airflow delivers as much fresh air as the wearer desires, for comfort as well as for respiration
  • A Mountain Breeze air filter eliminates unpleasant odors and protects wearers from an increased concentration of ozone in the worksite
  • An A1B1E1 gas filter insert provides protection against organic, inorganic and acid gases and vapors in heavily polluted, foul-smelling, or toxic environments
  • An ergonomic, three-point shoulder harness improves wearer comfort by distributing the system's fit across the wearer's shoulders to relieve back and hip pressure
  • Fully-automatic calibration of the system's airflow
  • Instant display of the current battery charge level
  • A Parking Buddy belt hook holds the welding helmet away from contaminated work surfaces when not in use.

The e3000X PAPR system consists of the e3000X ventilated respiratory protection system (blower unit and hose), pre-filters, TH3P R SL particle master filter, 18h power battery, leather belt, charger, parking buddy belt hook, duffle carrying bag and user instructions.

The e3000X PAPR system integrates with optrel PAPR welding helmets, including the optrel crystal 2.0, optrel panoramaxx, optrel e684, optrel vegaview2.5, optrel liteflip autopilot, as well as the optrel clearmaxx grinding helmet. The e3000X is also available as part of several ready-to-weld/ready-to-grind packages.

The optrel e3000X PAPR meets industry standards EN 12941:1998 + A1:2003 + A2:2008, AS/NZS 1716:2012 and EAC: TP TC 019/2011. NIOSH approval is pending.
