Optrel E3000X PAPR TH3P System c/w 18 Hour Li-ion Battery
The Optrel E3000X PAPR TH3P system is a light weight, belt mounted, powered air purifying respirator which is compatible with; Optrel welding helmets, grinding visors and softhoods. Meeting TH3P standards, the Optrel E3000X PAPR offers the highest levels of protection against fine dust, fumes, mist and spores according to EN 12941:1998 = A2:2008. Further protection against ozone odours, acidic gases, organic and inorganic vapours is also possible with the addition of the optional A1B1E1 filter.
Many tasks such as grinding, arc welding, routing and sanding, produce large amounts of fine dust particles, which can cause long term respiratory illnesses. Other applications such as spraying, painting or working with solvents can also be harmful and therefore need protecting against. When paired with the correct filter, the Optrel E3000X PAPR system is a highly effective, comfortable and economical solution for operators working in these environments where respiratory protection is essential.
The Optrel E3000X powered air purifying respirator works by using a high powered motor to draw air through a high efficiency filter. Clean air is supplied to the operator through a breathing tube and compatible headtop from within the Optrel range. This positive pressure air delivery inside the selected headgear prevents any outside contaminants from entering, thus the wearer is protected. A major advantage of positive pressure air delivery is that it negates any face fit testing as the mask is not sealed to the face, breathing is also easier as the motor is pulling air through the filter and not the lungs. A continual flow of cooling air – up to 240 litres per minute, improves wearer comfort and increases productivity, especially during manual labour.
Unlike many PAPR systems which work to the TH2P standard, allowing 2% of particulates to enter the mask, the Optrel range of powered air purifying respirators meet the highest level of dust and particulate protection available – TH3P. This elevated protection allows just 0.2% of particulate ingress offering 10 X better filtration when compared to some other powered respirators.
During welding, an increase in ozone concentrations can cause an unpleasant odour resulting in headaches or even nausea, this can be alleviated by adding the optional Mountain Breeze odour filter or A1B1E1 combination filter.
Should the pre or main filter become blocked during operation, an audible alarm is sounded and the fan speed is reduced to the next lowest setting in order for immediate works to continue. Failure to address the saturated filter will eventually trigger a shut off device in the system.
ATEX Zone 2 certified – Hazardous gas, vapour and mist.
ATEX Zone 22 certified – Hazardous dust and powders.
ATEX is an abbreviation of ATmosphere EXplosible and relates to the safety of tools and equipment that are used in environments where explosive atmospheres can occur.
Up to 18 hours of battery life.
Very high air flow and long run time rates:
Level 1: min. 170 l/min, 18 hours
Level 2: min. 210 l/min, 16 hours
Level 3: min. 240 l/min, 13 hours
Spark trap and Pre-filter system dramatically reduces running costs by sparing the main filter from heavy contamination.
Audible alarm alert: blocked filter and no filter inserted.
Built in flow sensor negates a manual air flow check as with other PAPR systems.
