Reduce respiratory burdens

04 November 2015

Scott Safety has launched the ‘Proflow 2 SC 160’– a higher flowrate powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) for the industrial market.

This variant of the Proflow SC range of PAPR has a flow rate of 160l per minute (160l/min), providing reduced respiratory burden and comfort for longer working periods, particularly in warm environments. 

Designed for use by workers operating in contaminated air environments, PAPRs use a motor to pass air through a filter to give a supply of clean air. Compatible with a wide range of headtops and facemasks approved to the latest EN respiratory standards and a comprehensive choice of filters, the Proflow 2 SC 160 covers a wide range of industrial applications, from agriculture and construction, to heavy manufacturing and oil and gas. 

Representing the next generation of PAPR, the Proflow 2 SC 160 is designed to be intelligent and easy to use with a number of advanced refinements over the original Proflow concept. Electronic control of the air supply maintains a comfortable airflow, automatically compensating for changes in filter resistance. On board data logging also records usage to provide workers with reliable and downloadable maintenance information.

To reduce the physiological burden on the wearer, the Proflow 2 SC 160’s ergonomic design incorporates a curved backplate and lightweight battery, ensuring user comfort for long periods of use.
