PAPR Respiratory Protection System
What does ATEX actually mean?
ATEX stands for "ATmosphere EXplosible" and refers to the safety of equipment and systems such as the e3000X PAPR system. ATEX-certified equipment and systems must be used when explosive atmospheres can occur.
What are explosive atmospheres?
An explosive atmosphere is one in which materials such as gases, vapours or dusts reach a concentration which, together with air or oxygen, can trigger an explosion.
Natural processes, industrial activities or human error can all cause explosive atmospheres. Explosive atmospheres mostly occur indoors, but are also found outdoors, for example in mines.
Examples of explosive materials are:
- Flammable gases such as methane, propane and butane
- Flammable vapours such as petrol, diesel and alcohol
- Combustible dusts such as wood, metal and plastic dusts
How do you know that you need ATEX-certified equipment?
There is always reason enough for a PAPR system with ATEX Zone 2 and 22 certification.
But if your safety officer or any national or industry legal regulations require ATEX-certified equipment, you must check whether a unit for Zones 2 and 22 is sufficient.
During arc welding, grinding and many other dust-intensive activities, your airways are always exposed to harmful smoke, dust and often toxic gases. Wearing a personal breathing protection system is therefore essential – no matter how well ventilated your working environment may be.
That‘s why the new e3000X offers you a highly modular breathing protection solution that you can adapt to your protection needs in seconds.
99.8% cleaned air. Perfect protection.
Compared to the widely available TH2 systems, TH3-certified breathing protection systems filter 10 times more dirt out of the air, or in other words: 99.8% of the harmful particles are filtered out of the air.
A1B1E1 gas filter for maximum safety
The A1B1E1 filter protects the user from organic, inorganic and acidic gases and vapours. This optional filter makes the e3000X the perfect companion for any welder who has to work in heavily polluted, smelly or even toxic environments.
optrel consistently avoids any air turbulence inside the helmet that could irritate your eyes. The purified air is led directly to your mouth and nose in an internal air flow channel. After all, this is the only place we need this valuable breathing air. We have also thought of a pleasant cooling. In the forehead area a continuously adjustable air outlet offers you the option to let up to 20% of the air flow onto your forehead. Pleasantly soft! No more eye irritation!
The new optrel e3000x reliably protects you from particles such as smoke, aerosols and dust. In addition, the mountainbreeze Odor/Ozon Filter protects you from unpleasant odours and harmful ozone. In environments with harmful or even toxic gases, the A1B1E1 gas filter reliably protects you from organic, inorganic and acid gases. The new e3000x easily adapts to your needs.
Efficiency is achieving as much air output as possible with as little energy as possible. We have managed to double the efficiency of the new e3000X by combining a performance-optimized design with the latest battery cell technology.
With up to 18 hours of battery life and 240 litres of air per minute available at the touch of a button, the new e3000X is the perfect choice for the most powerful ventilated breathing protection system available on the market.
