Reliable Protection against Smoke, Aerosols, and Dust.

The new e3000X PAPR System.

optrel products offer highest quality and performance levels to protect welders and grinders.

With the new e3000X PAPR system you complement your optrel PAPR mask with a protection for your respiratory system, which makes no compromises in matters of safety, health and comfort.

The best breathing protection class – TH3

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.

Gases - the invisible danger

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.

Fresh air - where you need it

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!

X-tended Application Possibilities

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.

X-tended Productivity

As soon as the filter in the respective air flow level is saturated, you receive an acoustic alarm and the new e3000X‘s intelligent alarm function switches fully automatically to the next lowest air flow stag – without you having to interrupt the work process.

X-tended Performance

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.

X-tended Safety

A hard working day is imminent and you need to know where you stand. The new e3000X shows you the battery charge level at the touch of a button and calibrates the air flow automatically. So you can get through the day safely.
