  • FAQS

    I hear a lot about capacity ratings of NIOSH CBRN approved PAPRs. What does that mean and why does it matter?
    Capacity ratings reflect the approved service life of a filter cartridge based on NIOSH test requirements for specific gas/vapor challenges. A capacity rating of Cap1 indicates a NIOSH approved service life for the filter cartridge of 15 minutes when exposed to the gas/vapor challenge and breakthrough criteria indicated in the Standard. A Cap2 rating indicates a 30 minute service life when tested to the same criteria.

    This means that a Cap2 approved PAPR system offers twice the gas/vapor operational capability and half of the operational costs of Cap1 approved systems. Certain design features and performance characteristics that go into a Cap2 approval may boost user confidence and operational capability during an event.

    Are conversion kits available to convert my Sentinel CBRN system to a PAPR designed for infectious disease applications?
    Yes – multiple kits are available with head covers, clear hoods, full hoods, and filters to economically adapt your CBRN PAPR.

    Why would I select an alkaline battery adapter?
    With the alkaline battery adapter you never have to worry about charging your PAPR.  You’re ready at a moments notice and you can convert back to a rechargeable battery configuration in less than a minute.
