Optrel Swiss Air PAPR System
Many workplaces and public spaces produce pollutants such as smoke, soot particles, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, ozone or viruses that can enter the lungs through the nose, throat and trachea, causing illnesses such as asthma, chronic cough, bronchitis or other respiratory diseases including lung cancer.
The Optrel Swiss Air half-mask gives you maximum protection and all the freedom you will ever need, whatever application you may have in mind. The Swiss Air respiratory protection system works totally independent from a PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) helmet or other PAPR equipment traditionally required. This ensures maximum protect even when using standard non PAPR welding helmets, grinding visors, goggles and safety spectacles, safety helmets, and can even be used in some applications without any additional equipment. This makes this the Swiss Air the most versatile Optrel respiratory protection system available.
The core element of the Optrel Swiss Air blower respiratory protection system is a ventilated half mask that completely covers the wearers mouth and nose area and supplies them with purified air. The clean air is supplied to the half mask via a Y-hose from the Swiss Air’s miniaturised blower system, which is comfortably positioned on a carrying harness positioned on the wearers back. The user is then constantly in a "positive pressure air system", which permanently protects the respiratory tract against contaminated air. The breathing space created around the mouth and nose area by the half mask is then filled with the positive pressure, which also helps supports the wearers breathing and eliminates any tiring breathing resistance, which is normally a factor associated with traditional half masks or disposable respirators. The half-mask itself is made of high-tech fabric, which has been designed in such a way that it can adapted excellently to the individuals features, thanks to a freely adjustable headband. This Swiss Air is a one mask fits all concept, which eliminates the need for time-consuming fit tests. It also eradicates the problems of protecting wearers with facial hair which is common problem with conventional half masks and disposable respirators.
Swiss Air meets the highest standard of TH3 available for a professional respiratory protection systems. 99.8% of all harmful particles, aerosols, vapours, smoke and even viruses are reliably filtered out of the breathing air.
This powerful TH3 filter unit has an innovative ultra-flat design, which makes it lightweight and comfortable to carry.
The blower unit has an automatic air flow calibration function and is supplied with a high performance 14h battery for an uninterrupted working day.
The shoulder harness ensures an ergonomically perfect weight distribution of the super-light filter system.
When used with the optional central control panel – securely positioned on the chest section of the shoulder strap, you always have all functions under control. Overview of filter contamination, battery charge status, Stepless air flow control and on/off switch and altitude and temperature compensation.
The ventilated half mask is made of flame-retardant material which covers the wearers mouth and nose area completely, the positive pressure helps to supports breathing and helps eliminate wearer fatigue.
The stepless adjustable headband fits all head sizes from XS to XL.
Y-hose with adjustable neck strap and flexible hose elements ensures the air is supplied directly into the half mask.
