Bullard Launches T-Series Quick-Attach Respirator Hoods
CC20, RT and GR50 hoods now NIOSH-approved with threaded quick-connect for EVA PAPR
Cynthiana, KY - June 2012 - Bullard's EVA Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) is now NIOSH approved (TC-21C-0836 and TC-23C) with Threaded (T-Series) Quick-Attach Connections for the CC20, RT, and GR50 Series Respirator Hoods. The T-Series Quick-Attach connections provide a robust attachment of the breathing tube to the hood, with just a few simple turns.
The EVA is a technologically advanced PAPR that offers constant air flow in a compact, ergonomic, lightweight design. Offering 1,000 Assigned Protection Factor, EVA features an innovative Active Flow Technology system that automatically maintains constant air flow, an easy-to-read fuel gauge that lets users quickly check the unit's battery status, and a long-lasting 10,000-hour brushless motor.
Bullard's respirator hoods provide superior protection and comfort for use with Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPR) and Supplied Air Respirators (SAR). Hoods require no OSHA fit testing and offer a patented air delivery system that prevents lens fogging by directing air to the breathing zone. Hood choices are available in single or double bib, Dupont™ Tychem® or Nomex® fabrics, with or without headbands and with acetate, PETG, vinyl or polycarbonate lenses.
