  1. Secret

    A Decent First PAPR to BuyIf you are looking into buying a PAPR for COVID-19, you should consider the Optrel Swiss Air PAPR instead, which just came out. It is a lot more comfortable, lightweight, and also has a half mask design (see attached picture).Note about the Optrel Helmet and Headgear:Some people have mentioned that the helmet that comes with the e3000x is uncomfortable. There is a solution for that: buy either this Sentinel A50 headgear (https://www.amazon.com/ESAB-0700000809-Headgear-Assembly-Sentinel/dp/B0767H4RDF/) or this Miller Gen 3.5 Headgear (https://www.amazon.com/Miller-284218-Gen-3-5-Headgear/dp/B089B9GFXX/). On your Optrel Helmet, you turn the nut in the center, and then take it apart. Mark holes (that you need to create) on the headgear you bought with a permanent marker to match the mounting points (brackets) on your Optrel helmet. Use a nail file to make the holes square on the headgear that you bought. Be sure to check the orientation of the square holes that you made on the headgear that you purchased, so that your helmet sets down at the right height when its down, while you are wearing it, and it’s in use. Then put the headgear back together with the nut. After that, you should be set.Important Information Regarding PAPRs:PAPRs function by creating a high-pressure air environment for you to breathe. Unless you are wearing a full facemask with a tight seal (which this particular PAPR, along with the Optrel Swiss Air, are not certified to do), air leaks around the sides of the mask. Because of the high-pressure environment, you breathe in 99.8% clean air (TH3 certification for all of the equipment, if used together properly), and inhale almost no unclean air, even with the air leaking through the sides. The TH3 filter, which is included, is the appropriate filter for COVID-19 protection. The Optrel helmet, e3000x PAPR unit, and the e3000x TH3 filter are all NIOSH certified. NIOSH is an agency through the CDC that has existed since 1973 for occupational safety. You should get 3 paper documents in your shipment certifying that the helmet, e3000x PAPR unit, and e3000x TH3 unit are NIOSH certified if used together. It should be noted that only certain Optrel helmets can be used with the Optrel PAPR unit, and other brand PAPR helmets are not compatible or interchangeable. This applies for any brand PAPR that is purchased: only certain parts from the same brand work with that particular PAPR along with being certified to be safe.Additional costs of a PAPR:You should be aware of running costs when buying a PAPR. Filters, although they last a long time, are particularly expensive from 3M compared to Dräger or Optrel. Optrel tends to be the cheapest, and this is one of the reasons why it is a good starting PAPR. It is important to always have a backup filter on hand. I would also get a backup battery along with a backup charger for the PAPR. For all PAPRs, I recommend getting a harness or backpack that is compatible with the PAPR for comfort, so that weight is distributed evenly along your back. You should strongly consider getting a medium-sized duffel bag for storing and carrying the PAPR. A backpack will work, however, the form-factor of a duffel bag allows the equipment to fit better. Note: Optrel provides a microfiber drawstring sackpack for the PAPR helmet which prevents it from getting scratched.Optrel Dropped the Ball on their Organic, Inorganic, and Acid Gas/Vapor Filter:The e3000x was supposed to have a A1B1E1 filter come out in 2020, which by definition captures organic, inorganic, and acid gases, along with those types of vapors. Unfortunately the A1B1E1 filter has not come out yet, and it is probably due to the pandemic, which is unfortunate. This means that you can still smell gases or fumes. The A1B1E1 filter will not afford you more protection from COVID-19! It should be noted that about 30% of the population is sensitive to fumes and smells, so if you are one of these people, this Optrel e3000x PAPR may be a problem. This is especially so if you have severe Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.Other PAPR Options (and considerations for people who are sensitive to smells):The most robust and versatile PAPR is the Dräger X-plore 8500 Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) (https://www.amazon.com/Dr%C3%A4ger-Air-Purifying-Respirator-NIOSH-Approved-TH3-Approved/dp/B07R6N5CKV/) with a combination filter (which filters against gases and vapors, and therefore smells, which is more than what is needed for COVID-19) (https://www.amazon.com/Dr%C3%A4ger-Combination-NIOSH-Approved-Air-Purifying-Respirator/dp/B07RGWTNHD/), flexible hose, and the Dräger shoulder harness (for comfort). It should be noted that the Dräger PAPR headpieces do not cover your ears, so you can hear others a lot better. If you get the flexible hose, it also makes it easier to hear because it dampens vibrations. This all makes it much easier to communicate with others, which is very important. This PAPR is certified for use with a wide array of headpieces compared to its competitors, including 2 tight-fitting Dräger facemasks, which afford the most protection. When comparing weight, the e3000x weighs 8.45 pounds, while the Dräger X-plore 8500 weighs 9.73 pounds. So they are about the same when it comes to having to carry it on your waist. But, the Dräger is a lot more durable and can take much more of a beating (see videos on the Amazon listing page along with reviews).Another option for people who are very sensitive to smells is the 3M Versaflo Heavy Industry PAPR Kit TR-600-HIK (https://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Industry-PAPR-Kit-TR-600-HIK/dp/B00WVO3UUA/), which allows for gas and vapor filter cartridges, unlike the 3M Versaflo TR-300. Unfortunately the 3M Versaflo TR-600 is larger and weighs more than the 3M Versaflo TR-300. Supposedly the 3M Versaflo PAPRs has the most comfortable headpiece of all of the PAPRs: 3M M-307 Versaflo Respiratory Hard Hat Assembly With Premium Visor and Faceseal (https://www.amazon.com/3M-Versaflo-Respiratory-Assembly-M-307/dp/B0081GF54Q/). It also does not cover your ears, unlike the Optrel e3000x, so you can hear well. If you get the 3M Versaflo Heavy Duty Neoprene Rubber Breathing Tube, it allows you to hear and converse a lot better with others, as the material dampens vibrations. The problem is that this PAPR is very heavy at 12.9 pounds and is much bigger than the others. I recommend getting the 3M Versaflo Backpack (https://www.amazon.com/3M-00051131173583-Versaflo-Capacity-Standard/dp/B07GNXDR1Q/). For the TR-600 series, you also need a backpack adapter (https://www.amazon.com/Back-Adaptor-TR-655-37385-TR-600/dp/B00WVNPICO/) in order to use the backpack. Because this PAPR is bigger and heavier than others, I recommend the Dräger PAPR, if you are sensitive to smells. Unfortunately, unlike the Dräger PAPR, the 3M Versaflo series does not allow for a tight-fitting full facemask to be used. The 3M Versaflo TR-600 charger is very expensive (https://www.amazon.com/Single-Station-Battery-Charger-TR-641/dp/B00TYOZWXI/) along with the TR-600 high capacity battery (https://www.amazon.com/Capacity-Battery-TR-632-37348-TR-600/dp/B00TYOZW4M/). The 3M Versaflo (TR-600 compatible) Organic, Inorganic, and Acid Gas/Vapor filter (A1B1E1 filter) is also expensive (https://www.amazon.com/3M-Versaflo-TR-6530N-HEPA-Cartridge/dp/B00TYP01W4/).The best setup for regular PAPR use:I have done a lot of research on various PAPRs. Part of the reason why is because I have 2 rare immune-mediated neurological diseases affecting my peripheral nervous system. I am on immunosuppression and I am high-risk of becoming severely ill from any infection, not just COVID-19. I also can be sensitive to smells, but I am not extremely sensitive to them. However, if I were to go into an environment where there were solvents or fumes, I would definitely have to wear a PAPR with an A1B1E1 filter (also known as an Organic, Inorganic, and Acid Gas/Vapor filter). I also weld as a hobby, so I have multiple uses for a PAPR.This is what my PAPR setup is going to be, in the near future. I already have the Optrel Swiss Air, but I am saving up for the Dräger X-plore 8500 PAPR, which will replace my Optrel e3000x PAPR.My primary PAPR (when out in public):* Optrel Swiss Air PAPR (half facemask PAPR without tight seal)Unfortunately the Optrel Swiss Air cannot be used when sitting on a chair with a high backrest, as the PAPR is on your upper back. You cannot move the PAPR unit to face the front of your body, for example, because the hose on the back of the mask (which attaches to the PAPR) is very short. The same issue occurs when lying down, which is a problem, for example, if I end up in the hospital. As of now, the filter for the Optrel Swiss Air is only TH3, not A1B1E1 (organic, inorganic, acid gases/vapors), so it is not ideal for use in places with a lot of fumes or solvents.Additional Optrel Swiss Air PAPR equipment:* Backup Filter* Backup Battery* Generic Backpack for Storing the Optrel Swiss Air when not in use* (No need for special backup charger as it uses USB charging)My Auxiliary PAPR (for use in high fume areas, welding, sitting down or lying down in a hospital bed, etc.)* Dräger X-plore 8500 Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR)I plan on getting the following headpieces and/or facemasks:* Dräger X-plore 8000 Helmet With Visor, black* Dräger X-plore 8000 Protective Visor (soft headpiece)* Dräger FPS 7000 (full facemask with tight seal)* Dräger X-plore 4740 (half facemask with tight seal)That is a lot of headpieces, but it is nice to have both a soft and hard headpiece. It is also nice to have a tight-fitting full facemask and a tight-fitting half facemask. All of the Dräger headpieces keep your ears exposed, so you can hear and communicate better. I plan on getting the flexible hoses, to aid in communication, as it dampens vibrational sounds.I plan on getting a medium sized duffel bag for storing and carrying the PAPR. I also plan on having 2 high capacity batteries and 2 standard chargers, so that the PAPR can always be in use while another battery charges. This is important, even though I have the Optrel Swiss Air, because I will always be protected when in the hospital. I also plan on having a backup combination filter, which filters out organic, inorganic, acid gases/vapors. I also plan on buying the shoulder harness for Dräger X-plore 8500 PAPR, for comfort so I can use it longer.

  2. Some guy who buys things

    Review, analze, and lack of “workplace story”Okay, here is a over analyzed breakdown of this product without an “at work explanation”-The mask itself is mostly comfortable to wear. It sits on my head nicely and took a bit of tinkering to get it to fit just perfect. but it got there. Take a few minutes to adjust and wear for 15-20 min to make sure its comfortable for use before you have to actually use it. so you don’t have to tinker with it on in a volatile environment.-If you have a beard there is plenty of space to fit it in the mask, there is a Pouch like area directly under your chin so your beard can fit there, However if you have a short beard and have sensitive skin it could cause some irritation. IF you have stubble, don’t. The band will happily irritate the daylights out of your lower jaw.If you don’t have the pleasure of facial hair, people with sensitive skin my find the band irritating. But better to have a slight jaw irritation then to breath in either covid or a room full of sawdust, or whatever it is you are trying to filter.- Mask weight, Personally i have a neck fusion and i did not find this uncomfortable to wear for 9 hours straight. Its made of light plastic and it’s durable. I seem to bump my head a lot because i’m not used to having such a big bump radius on my head so durability has been tested extensively.-The battery lasts all day on MED setting, i haven’t needed it on High for a full day yet so i cant say it will last all day at work. (i’ll update this when i test High setting for a full day. )-The hose kept touching the top of my head at first but with a few seconds of adjusting its placement, that is solved. its also very flexible and not ridged enough to restrict movement so you will barely notice it. its also soft so its not irritating when it bumps you in the back.-The belt is FAR too long but I have discovered that if you pull the belt through the provided loop, as normal, you can loop it back under the same loop again. You can pass the belt through the loop up to 3 times, imagine the resulting shape as “unu”, it greatly reduces the length of the belt overhang. Once the belt is bent on each side it wont slip out and be flopping about.-The overall weight of the battery pack/filter unit may be encumbering to those who wear it too high on their body, such as above the waist on your lower back. I wear mine below my belt of my pants. It’s not touching my back and It may take getting used to, but it solves any sort of issues with strain on the back. However it doesn’t do anything for sitting down in a chair. But that’s the case with all devices like this, they wern’t designed for that in the first place. Just take it off and put it somewhere the tube reaches, like the floor.- Noise level: Its fairly noisy for an office setting. If you work somewhere that has a decent amount of ambient noise it will blend into the background pretty easy.-The carrying bag provided neatly fits the mask and filter unit however you need to detach the hose from both to make this happen.-The belt clip provided is only Slightly useful. I find that whenever i walk too fast, the mask like to Jump out of the clip, either its designed poorly or its not supposed to be used like a walking storage clip. A strip of hook and loop, fixes it, Just glue a Hook strip that goes across the gap and a loop strip on the side. and it holds it firmly in place so you can walk around with it strapped on you securely. If you glue it up any other way there is a possibility that your going to rub your hand on it frequently when going into your pockets which will irritate the skin, that’s my 2 cents.- My last comment is for those who thought of the inevitable bodily function. No it does not completely filter out your own farts when you let them go. Personally it surprised me BUTT not unexpected that the gas seems to make its way into your mask from the filter. However I wasn’t able to smell any similar smells in restrooms and other smelly areas that the smell is common in. I’m guessing it was because of the concentration and distance to the intake and i’m not testing this to confirm. If you pass gas frequently, wear the filter on your front or something else to save yourself from assaulting your face. (it had to be said)I hope you found this a useful.

    Not in love, but I guess I’ll settleWhat I like:* I have great visibility through the mask.* Patients who are hard of hearing are able to see my mouth when I talk, making communication easier than if I had on an N95 mask.* I’m not sharing the same PPE with coworkers.* I feel reasonably protected and if something urgent happens with a patient, I can respond quickly.* The battery lasts for a long time.What I don’t like:* The mask is heavier than expected.* It has taken quite a bit of adjusting and still tips forward and slides down, pushing on my eyebrows unless it is so tight around my head that it gives me a headache. I ordered the crown support. Hopefully it helps.* The elastic around my face is causing skin irritation -not as bad as a teal N95 mask- but for the cost of this, I’d like to be comfortable.* The leather belt is extremely long and doesn’t seem to have a good solution to deal with the long tail, other than cutting it off.* Wearing the PAPR for a 12 hour shift is causing low back pain.This obviously was not made with medical use in mind, but is reasonably adaptable for the current circumstances. It seems to do the job we want it to do. My main complaint is that for the equivalent of a mortgage payment, I expected it to be comfortable to wear. It is not. I find myself distracted by the elastic irritating my jawline, the mask sliding down the front of my face, and my low back hurting from the PAPR waist pack. I’ll prioritize safety over comfort and deal with it. Had I known what it would feel like to wear it, I would have looked for other options.
