SEPTEMBER 5, 2006 – Bullard introduces the PA30IS intrinsically safe (IS) Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR), offering the highest IS rating of any PAPR on the market. Rated Class I, Div. I, Group C by Factory Mutual (FM), the PA30IS operates with safety controls to prevent sparking and power surges.
- The only intrinsically safe PAPR warning users with a low-voltage alarm.
- The only intrinsically safe PAPR with an internal battery compartment, eliminating potential snagging or unplugging of the battery cord.
- The intrinsically safe PAPR offering the most hood choices.
- An intrinsically safe PAPR completely sealed for easy decontamination.
The PA30IS, available September 2006, can be configured with the customer’s choice of hood, breathing tube, blower assembly and purifying filter canisters. The seven-hour battery run time and one-year product warranty give users the confidence they need when working in potentially explosive atmospheres.
