The Optrel Clearmaxx with the e3000X PAPR is the most powerful ventilated breathing protection system on the market. Don't just take our word for it, we are going to break down the facts of this remarkable new product. Highest level of respiratory protection in its class. 

Highest Safety Class

The e3000X protects against smoke, aerosols, and dust with an unlimited clear view of you workspace through the Clearmaxx Shield. Air is evenly distributed with three levels of adjustability. Level 1 is up to 170 liters of fresh air per minute. The average competitive product peaks around 200, and the e3000X is in level 2. Level 3 provides 240 liters of fresh air per minute which is truly next level. 

This system filters 10 times more dirt out of the air which is 99.8% filtration! Air is directed in all the right places avoiding the eye area. A rotary switch inside the helmet can be used to feed 20% of the cool air to the forehead. 

The easy to change DIN5 front cover lens expands the system to the perfect protector for efficient plasma cutting, grinding, and all around protection. Mountain breeze filter reduces the odor coming through the filter. 

Days can be long, but with the 18 hour battery this system can make it through the whole day with you. Clear anti fog view through the shield keeps user safe from both physical and chemical hazards. Clearmaxx combined with the e3000X PAPR makes the perfect solution for countless applications. 
Clearmaxx PAPR system is NIOSH approved in the United States.

Comfort and Versatility

Okay so this is technically the most advanced solution on the market, but is it lacking in the area of comfort and functionality? The answer is no, they truly thought of everything with this solution. Weight comes in just a little over a pound (495 grams.) The shoulder harness evenly distributes the weight across the back with a 3 point adjustability system so you can make it fit your needs.
We asked several users what they thought of the comfort and they described it as non interfering to the point they nearly forgot they were wearing respiratory protection.

**PAPR COVID-19 Note**

With the current pandemic we are aware of the increased demand for protective equipment. We have received a lot of questions and inquiries about PAPR options and below are the facts Optrel has provided.

This Optrel PAPR solution removes 99.8% of harmful solid and liquid airborne particles to deliver clean, filtered breathing air. The Clearmaxx Shield provides eye protection to prevent infection through the eyes without compromising view or comfort. 

This does include infectious viruses transmitted through the air in the form of  droplet infection. 

Compared to the best in class filter mask (class FFP3), the safety of the user is increased by a factor of ten or even by a factor of 40 when using FFP2 masks. 

Clear view of work space and keeps user from touching face while wearing the Clearmaxx Shield. 

**Please note: Important note is that this product is NIOSH approved, not FDA approved. The FDA governs the healthcare industry. Recently the FDA granted "emergency use authorization" to industrial PAPR use in healthcare. (Optrel Statement Clearmaxx and E3000X PAPR and COVID-19)
