  • FAQS

    What is a PAPR (powered air purifying respirator)?

    Powered air-purifying respirators, or PAPRs, use a blower to pull ambient air through air-purifying elements (filters) before the air is made available for breathing.

    Are there different types of PAPRs?

    Yes, PAPRs come in a variety of styles: half mask, full mask, full facepiece, and helmets/hoods. The Sentinel Clear® system features an advanced hood and a high-performance blower.

    What is the assigned protection factor (APF) of the Sentinel Clear® system?

    The Sentinel Clear® system with the Clear Hood provides an APF of 1,000.

    ILC Dover’s Sentinel Clear Hood, combined with its XT blower, is a best-in-class solution that delivers an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 1,000 while offering a full 320-degree field of view. It allows the wearer to have facial hair and it reduces feelings of claustrophobia because it doesn’t sit on the face.

    What makes the Sentinel Clear hood different from other hoods on the market?

    The Sentinel Clear hood offers an ultra-wide field of view and is unique in that it doesn’t require an internal suspension system (headband or rachet type). It’s supported by the positive pressure air delivered by the robust Sentinel XT PAPR blower.  This feature allows the wearer to freely move their head from side to side and up and down within the hood – without the discomfort of a headband or rachet pressing against their forehead.

    Does the Sentinel XT blower come in a configuration suitable for hazardous locations?

    Yes – the Sentinel XT/NI is certified by Factory Mutual/FM Global Group for service in Class I, II, III and Division 2, Group C, D, E, F, G hazardous locations

    Does ILC Dover provide on-site training for this product?

    Yes – training is included for all ILC Dover respiratory protective products.

    Is the Sentinel XT Powered air purifying respirator system and its accessories Latex free?

    Yes – all of ILC Dover’s powered air purifying respirator systems and accessories are Latex free.
