3M Unveils Versaflo TR-800 Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

The Powered Air Purifying Respirator is designed to incorporate ergonomic styling and long battery life combined with leading technology from 3M.

In order to combat bulky respiratory wear that is currently on the market, 3M has unveiled its new 3M Versaflo TR-800 Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR).

The PAPR is designed to incorporate ergonomic styling and long battery life combined with leading technology from 3M. The low-profile PAPR design provides more freedom than a fresh-air system because the painter is not tethered to an air hose, allowing the painter to move about the booth easily and leave and return without removing the equipment.

“We want to ensure painters have access to comfortable respiratory protection on the job with a PAPR they want to wear, even when they are working in the booth all day long,” said Chris Sneden of the 3M Personal Safety Division. “By combining a variety of 3M solutions for the paint booth such as helmets, hoods and headcovers, protective coveralls and eye protection, we can help make their work in the paint booth easier and more efficient while providing them comfort and control.”

As part of the 3M Versaflo family, the TR-800 can be combined with Versaflo headtops, belts and certain other accessories to become part of a NIOSH-approved respirator system. The TR-800 system features multiple speeds, audible and visual alarms, and the ability to work with a wide variety of cartridges. It is designed on a global platform that gives multinational customers the option to standardize on one product platform with both NIOSH and CE versions available.

Key features include:

  • With a lighter overall weight and more compact design than 3M’s legacy GVP-PSK2 PAPR, the TR-800-PSK is designed for easy movement in a paint booth. Multiple airflow rates that put the painter in control of their comfort with the ability to work at their own speed.
  • Intuitive, colored touchpoints plus visual and audible low-flow indicators.
  • Innovative construction featuring 3M-patent pending material capable of meeting new IEC/UL 60079 material properties requirement while still meeting aging, conditioning and drop test requirements for IS products.
  • Multi-speed blower functions at altitudes up to 16,000 feet to keep the air flowing.
  • Long run-time batteries that charge quickly, achieving 90 percent charge in approximately 3.5 hours, with approximately 750 full charge/discharge cycles and a built-in charge level indicator.
  • Mechanical attachment of the battery to help prevent battery removal during use and spark risk during use per IEC/UL 60079 along with battery protection bumpers to help absorb impact.
