Latest PPE solution features sophisticated real-time airflow control technology
RESPIRATORY specialists Scott Safety have launched Duraflow – a new lightweight and ergonomically designed powered air respirator (PAR) with sophisticated real-time airflow control.
The new PPE solution is said to give complete wearer assurance of respiratory protection to focus on the job rather than the protective equipment itself, in a multitude of hazardous situations and industries.
Mark Andrews, global product line manager (powered air, halfmask & airline) for Scott Safety, said: ‘Our design intent for Duraflow was to bring to the market a reliable, durable powered air product at an affordable price for those currently using respirators with filters fitted directly to the mask (negative pressure mode).’
He also pointed out Duraflow’s automatic monitoring features ensure the airflow rate is maintained at precisely the correct level to afford protection for the user. Visual and audible diagnostics alert the user of any drop in airflow below the required level or when the battery needs recharging.
Two high energy density battery options are available on the PPE – standard and extended duration, which can be selected depending on shift coverage required – providing less downtime and more working time.
Highly versatile, Duraflow is compatible with a plethora of Scott Safety headtops, filters and accessories, protecting workers from a variety of environmental hazards.
