PPE – Powered Air Purifying Respirators

Untether Your Productivity!

If you are involved in any type of abrasive blasting, painting & coating applications, or site clean-up operations, ILC Dover PAPR’s (Powered Air Purifying Respirators) can save you money, reduce fatigue, and increase operator comfort and safety so your job gets done faster. Our respirators can also be used in the industrial workplace to provide a safe breathing environment. The organic vapor cartridges are designed to filter out virtually all contaminants including nPB, also known as 1-bromopropane or 1-BP. Made by the same company that manufacturers NASA Spacesuits and the Mars Rover Landing Gear, these units are built for demanding conditions, and cost less than other PAPRs on the market today.

Benefits of using ILC Dover PAPR’s include:


  • NO fit test required – One size fits all head covers
  • NO CO2 monitoring
  • NO sensor calibration
  • NIOSH-approved particulate AND organic vapor cartridges available
