3M™ Breathe Easy™ Belt-Mounted PAPR Systems

 
The Breathe Easy system is being phased out for industrial applications only.
It is still available for Emergency Preparedness / CBRN needs.

See also the 3M™ GVP or the new TR-600 Versaflo for other options.
 
  • 3M™ Breathe Easy™ Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) systems provide comfortable, efficient powered air protection.
  • These systems are available in a wide range of headgear. They use interchangeable filters, cartridges and canisters to protect the wearer against gases, vapors and/or particulates.
  • The Breathe Easy Turbo motor blower unit draws ambient air through a filter/cartridge/canister and supplies filtered air through the breathing tube to the headpiece.
  • These are modular systems with each part sold separately for maximum flexibility of configurations.
  • To build a system, first choose your headgear and the compatible breathing tube, then the battery pack and appropriate filters or cartridges, and finally, any accessories desired.
  • We carry the full line of all 3M™ PAPR products.
  • Please call for other products not shown here.

We show two product matrices below, the BP-17ISpdf (left column) & the BP-15pdf (right column) battery pack. 
The headgear shown can be used with either of these.
