How PAPRs work
PAPRs are a loose-fitting, positive pressure respirator. This provides respiratory protection by drawing in ambient air through a battery powered fan. As the air enters the unit, it goes through a filter, which prevents particulates from entering the air supply. The air is then propelled to the users breathing zone allowing them to breathe as they would normally.
Because there is air being blown into the head top, there does not need to be a complete seal between the respirator and the user, creating the positive pressure. As opposed to PAPRs, N95s are a negative pressure, tight fitting respirator that operate by creating a tight seal along the users face and ambient air is filtered through the mask material by the wearer’s lungs.
The Benefits of PAPRs
PAPRs first and foremost offer a greater level of respiratory protection over N95s. With an APF of greater than 1000 and the ability to filter up to 99.9999% of particulates down to 0.12 microns (when compared to the 95% efficiency of N95s), these are proven to provide a greater level of protection. Because of this they can be used in a wide range of both industrial and healthcare applications, to prevent serious harm.
Being a loose-fitting respirator means these do not require fit testing which is a significant cost saving to businesses. This also means that the operator is always getting the required respiratory protection even if their operator’s physical appearance changes through the growth of facial hair or through weight loss/gain.
Being positive pressure enables the user to breathe as they would normally, therefore pulmonary function testing is not required for employees. For those with underlying respiratory diseases such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, they simply cannot operate using a tight-fitting respirator for both health and compliance reasons. However, by using a PAPR this helps to support their breathing by reducing the effects of fatigue and preventing their symptoms from worsening.
