ST PAPR – respiratory protection system

Companies & Organizations:

This Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) has been designed to add even greater flexibility to Avon’s revolutionary FM53™ mask and is available as an optional extra with the ST53 and ST53SD.

The addition of the STPAPR provides the additional levels of serviceability and comfort associated with powered air while still retaining the ability to switch instantly to the positive pressure SCBA mode when required. The STPAPR achieves this by utilising a Compact Demand Valve (CDV) fitted directly into the STPAPR.

The STPAPR is NIOSH certified with industrial protection under 42 CFR 84 with the FM53 and the combination cartridge, part number 033018, for protection against chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, chloroacetophenone, ammonia, chlorine, sulfur dioxide and particulates at a high efficiency level (CS/CN/ AM/CL/SD/HE).
