Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Why should the NIOSH CBRN standard matter to me?
The NIOSH CBRN Standard for Powered Air Purifying Respirators was created to address the “ongoing concern of potential terrorist events and the need to provide the emergency responder and receiver communities with alternatives to respiratory protection as quickly as possible” (NIOSH CBRN PAPR Announcement Letter, October 6, 2006). This Standard addresses the special needs and consideration of respirators that protect responders and receivers in the event they are called to duty in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear event.
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 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.
Is the Sentinel CBRN 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.
