The MSA Responder PAPR (Powered Air-Purifying Respirators) system is ideal for First Responder, Military and Special Operations personnel who need non-IDLH respiratory protection for an extended period of time. The MSA Responder PAPR combines an industry leading motor-blower with a choice of two proven MSA gas mask CBRN facepieces and three proprietary cartridges designed for CBRN, particulate, and poisonous gases/vapors.
The Responder PAPR’s constant filtered airflow provides improved comfort due to the cooling effect, greatly reducing pulmonary stress, preserving strength and mental acuity. The airflow also prevents fogging in the facepiece, reduces any feelings of claustrophobia and allows for extended use in hot and stressful environments.
