How does the filtration efficiency depend on particle size?

Optrel USA
2 years 4 months ago

The e3000x filter is 99.999% efficient against particle sizes down to .3 micron. As the particles become larger the filter becomes even more efficient. If you are concerned with Covid the virus is .1 micron but is transported in liquid droplets of roughly 4-10 microns making the clearmaxx PAPR an excellent choice.

Does it remove ammonia?

Optrel USA
1 year 8 months ago

The gas filter will not remove ammonia.

Does this filter protect against formaldehyde vapors?

Optrel USA
1 year 7 months ago

You would need to use the gas filter for formaldehyde vapors.

1 year 6 months ago

Can this be hooked up to the Swiss air head gear?

Optrel USA
1 year 6 months ago

If you mean can the Swiss Air face mask be attached to the e3000x blower the answer is no. You can visit build-your-own-PAPR on our website here:
This will show you what is compatible with each blower unit.

What would the proper build be for Automotive paint refinishing use?

Grant Cooper
1 year 5 months ago

We would recommend the e3000x blower kit with the clearmaxx visor and the gas filter at minimum. The shoulder harness would be a nice add-on.
