Dräger’s Powered Air-Purifying Respirator System Supports Wide Portfolio of Headpieces

Dräger’s X-plore 8500 powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) with new headpieces offers a robust system with expanded technical capabilities that increase productivity and total cost of ownership to filter hazardous substances from the ambient air. Designed to support various components and accessories, the new system can be customized to meet diverse application requirements while providing exceptional safety and comfort.

The X-plore 8500 PAPR is designed for daily use in tough environments. The blower units have been tested to last 10,000 hours in laboratory conditions. It features a heavy-duty design with rubber protectors and high ingress protection (IP 65) against dust and water from any direction. It is compatible with various Dräger X-plore 8000 filters. In laboratory conditions, depending on configuration, the battery can run 16 to 20 hours on a single charge. Multiple pogo pins maintain a robust connection that lasts the lifetime of the blower, which no other PAPR system in the market currently offers.

The intelligent electronics of the Dräger X-plore 8500 system appropriately adjust airflow, prevent use without the filter, and display the saturation of the particle filter. The filter system features a plug-and-go exchange and is equipped with optical, acoustic, and vibrating alarms. The automatic system calibration and flow check eliminate the need to manually calibrate the unit or conduct a flow check prior to using, saving the end user time and increasing productivity.

The Dräger X-plore 8500 is currently the only PAPR system on the market that guides airflow from the back of the headpiece with a tight and stable connection between the belt and the unit to secure optimal weight distribution. The simple and efficient charging system allows rapid charging in less than four hours. The unit is designed for fast and easy disassembly for cleaning. Ideal for long periods of use without sacrificing comfort or safety, the hood is approved as TH3 and extremely lightweight.
