The EVA Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) system should be cleaned and inspected after each use and prior to storage. Detach the battery pack, breathing tube, and loose-fitting hood from the blower unit. Inspect all parts for damage or other signs of excessive wear. Replace all damaged parts prior to storage or next use.

The following chemicals have been tested and approved as cleaning agents for the blower unit, belt, and battery.

  • Spor Klenz (undiluted) from Steris
  • Clorox liquid bleach at 10% concentration
  • Sani-cloth HB wipes

The exterior of the filter/cartridge can be gently wiped down with a dry or damp cloth. Ensure water does not enter filter/cartridge. Replace wet filter/cartridges. Do not use gasoline, organic-based solvents, or chlorinated degreasing fluids. Mechanical laundering of loose-fitting hoods or facepieces is not recommended. Hand-sponge with warm water and mild detergent if reusing. Ensure all equipment is clean and dry prior to storage and next use.
