What are Air-Purifying Respirators?! The latest in fresh air and breathing protection.

Optrel's Clearmaxx with the e3000x High-Efficiency Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System

Welding For Less is thrilled to introduce the new Optrel e3000x PAPR system with guaranteed protection against smoke, aerosols, and dust! The complete system comes with an e3000x blower motor with a hose, TH3 HEPA filter, pre-filter, spark arrestor, battery with charger, belt, and Clearmaxx grinding helmet with face seal.

With the Optrel Clearmaxx, you’ll have an unlimited clear view of your workspace, filtered and clear air with adjustable air distribution, and the most unique face and respiratory protection system with the highest safety level on the market!

So, what exactly are air-purifying respirators and how do they work? Check out this guide from the CDC.

Adjustable Air Distribution:

A rotary switch can be used to feed 20% of the air cooling the forehead area. Direct air draft crossing the eyes leading to dry eyes is avoided by the air distribution system.

Multi-function System:

Combining it with the Optrel e3000 PAPR system with mountain breeze filter the Clearmaxx becomes the perfect buddy on countless types of work. The easy-to-change DIN5 front cover lens expands the system to the perfect protector for efficient plasma cutting.

Wearing comfort:

Thanks to a minimized weight of only 330 g (PAPR version: 495 g) and an ergonomic fit the Clearmaxx sets new benchmarks in wearing comfort.

PAPR-Systems in times of Covid-19 -  A statement from Optrel Inc.

Certified to the highest level of respiratory protection in its class, TH3, filters and removes 99.8% of harmful solid and liquid airborne particles to deliver clean, filtered breathing air. This includes infectious viruses transmitted through the air e.g., droplet infection.

With the e3000x PAPR system, you complement your Optrel PAPR mask with a respiratory protection system, which makes no compromises in matters of safety, health, and comfort. Compared to the best in class filter mask (class FFP3), this increases the safety of the user by a factor of ten or even by a factor of 40 when using FFP2 masks. An infection through the eyes can be prevented as well.

Additionally, you won’t touch your face while wearing an Optrel Clearmaxx.

Please note: not to be used as a surgical mask
