Air-Purifying Respirators (APR)
Single or Twin port adapter snaps into place to cover a wide variety of respiratory applications, our APR adapter works with both NFPA and Industrial G1 facepieces, making the G1 facepiece platform ideal for industrial respiratory needs. The twin cartridge adapter can be used with the full line of both Advantage® and Comfo style respirator cartridges. The single port adapter can be used for industrial gas mask canisters and NFPA version facepieces can be adapted for CBRN APR protection. G1 NFPA Facepieces are available with Rubber or Kevlar harnesses and Industrial facepieces come with a polyester mesh harness for increased comfort.
Specifically designed for our Advantage® 3000, Advantage® 4000, Ultravue®, or Ultra Elite® facepiece models, the OptimAir® MM2K powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) is precision-crafted to offer long life, high performance, and low maintenance. The compact, easy-to-decontaminate model uses a rechargeable NiMH battery for 8 hours of continuous use, while a dual-rate smart charger fully powers a discharged battery in less than three hours. The water-resistant HEPA filter helps protect against particulate contaminants. The light blower attaches to the facepiece, while the Type HE Optifilter® Cartridges remove particulates.
Engineered to provide thorough, quantitative fit tests, our full line of specially modified facepiece assemblies offer quality construction and accurate responses. Each of our probed facepieces is equipped with a sampling line and a clothing clip to hold the sampling line. They also feature a built-in probe assembly, which feature solid brass probes. In our half-facepiece models, we attach the probe to the body of the respirator. Full-facepiece respirators are probed through the lens and sealed with a neoprene washer and brass fittings. For existing Ultravue® facepieces, our probed lenses come completely assembled with the same brass probe, sealing hardware and sampling line as the probed full facepieces.
Improve visibility with MSA respirator accessories, including spectacle kits and towelettes. Spectacle kits hold corrective lens in the facepiece while towelettes refresh equipment.
With its industry-leading motor-blower and constantly filtered airflow, the belt-mounted Responder CBRN PAPR is ideal for first responders, military, and special ops personnel who require non-IDLH respiratory protection for up to 8 hours. The unit offers a choice of two MSA gas mask CBRN facepieces and three proprietary cartridges designed for CBRN, particulate and poisonous gases or vapors. The unit's constant airflow helps a user stay physically alert and focused, while also preventing fogging in the facepiece. Batteries can be "hot-swapped," and the blower's EMI shield ensures there is no interference with radio communications.
This highly visible, one-size-fits-all yellow hood offers protection against smoke and gas from fires, especially carbon monoxide. The easy-to-use unit dons quickly and features a nose cup for a wide variety of head and face sizes, while the cotton neck seal ensures a tight fit. The high-performance filter offers thorough protection, while the wide lens provides an increased field of vision and the low breathing resistance reduces claustrophobia.
This ensemble contains several accessories for our purpose-built Ultra Elite mask. The options include a spectacle kit, adhesive protective visors, welders adapter, a mask tightness tester, and a carrying case. The sturdy carrier features a carrying strap for convenient access, while a radio communication kit ensures a user can maintain close contact while wearing the full-face mask.
Combining state-of-the-art features with MSA's precision engineering, the Ultra Elite full-face mask is our top model in this range. The ergonomic design makes this a comfortable unit, while the 5-point harness makes it easy to put it on or take it off. The distortion-free coated lens provides a wide field of vision, while the unique airflow prevents lens misting. The face blank has a single-sealing flange and comes in rubber or silicone, while the speech diaphragm makes communication easy to discern. The model has more than 40 different versions, making it the perfect mask for many different applications.
The MSA Filter Self-Rescuers W65-2/W65 and W 95 are Air-Purifying Respi rators for one-time escape use providing protection against toxic carbon monoxide (CO) and other gases emitted in underground mine fires or explosions. The Filter Self-Rescuer is immediately ready-for-use after opening and removal from the container. It has a Latex-free mouthpiece and nose clip to reliably protect the user from the contaminated ambient air. The adjustable head harness allows for a tight fit and hands-free usage. The sturdy stainless steel container is hermeticly sealed, providing long-lasting protection for the respirator.
Crafted to provide a secure fit and strong protection, Ultra-Twin Full-Facepiece Respirators offer several options that make it a clear choice for defense against toxic chemicals. The unit features an inturned lip for a comfortable seal against the face, a large chin cup for easy positioning, and 5 suspension headstraps with roller buckles that hold the facepiece in place while minimizing hair entanglement. The wide lens is scratch resistant, while a speaking diaphragm provides clear short-range communications. The unit also features a nosecup that helps eliminate lens fogging.
The low-maintenance, cost-efficient Advantage 1000 Full-Face Respirator provides top-notch protection without breaking the bank. The unit weighs 40% less than conventional full-face respirators and uses the same cartridges as the Advantage 200 LS respirator for additional flexibility. The Advantage 1000 respirator is constructed of soft Hycar rubber and features a wraparound flexible urethane lens that offers a comfortable fit with increased vision. The facepiece is available in three sizes and has a unique inturned lip that provides a strong seal. The unit also has a speaking diaphragm for clear, short-range communications and a nosecup to reduce lens fogging. The fully elastic, six-point head harness promotes quick donning and removal.
