The FlexAir PAPR one of the newest product lines by SafetyTech International (STI). SafetyTech is a leading manufacturer and supplier of Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) products, gas masks, and other respiratory protection products.The FlexAir PAPR System is a compact, lightweight Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System with a Lifetime Lithium Battery inside the waist mounted blower. Like other PAPR systems, users are protected by having contaminated air purified by filter media mounted on the PAPR blower unit and delivered via a lightweight breathing hose to the users head cover.
FlexAir is extremely versatile, offering a design that can accommodate a 2-filter or 3-cartridge configuration. For biological and particulate protection, 2 HE (High Efficiency) particulate filters are used with the FlexAir. And for protection against organic vapors and acid gases (OV/AG/HE), the FlexAir can be converted to a 3-cartridge system.
In addition, the FlexAir PAPR System has completed NIOSH approval to 42 CFR Part 84. But perhaps the best feature of the FlexAir is the wallet-friendly price.
