Q. What is a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)?

Air purifying respirator is a positive pressure respirator that uses a blower to force the ambient air through a filter to a hood or mask. A typical system includes a blower unit, filter/cartridge, battery, loose-fitting hood, and breathing tube. The HEPA filter is a high efficiency filter that captures 99.99% of particulates with a mass mean of 0.3-micron.
