MSA Responder CBRN PAPR Kit

The MSA Responder PAPR (Powered Air-Purifying Respirators) with its industry-leading motor-blower and constantly filtered airflow, the belt-mounted Responder CBRN PAPR is ideal for First Responder, Military and Special Operations personnel who need non-IDLH respiratory protection for an extended period of time. The MSA Responder PAPR combines an industry-leading motor-blower with a choice of three proven MSA gas mask CBRN facepieces, and three proprietary cartridges for CBRN, particulate, or poisonous gases / vapors.

The Responder PAPR’s constant filtered airflow provides improved comfort due to the cooling effect, greatly reducing pulmonary stress, preserving strength and mental acuity. The airflow also prevents fogging in the facepiece, reduces any feelings of claustrophobia, and allows for extended use in hot and stressful environments. Batteries can be "hot-swapped," and the blower's EMI shield ensures there is no interference with radio communications.

The MSA Responder CBRN PAPR is a belt-mounted powered air-purifying respirator with choice of 3 proven tight-fitting facepieces in 3 sizes. The motor blower provides a constant air flow of over 115 lpm to the facepiece. The PAPR can be used with CBRN cartridges or with multi-purpose chemical cartridges designed to protect against hazards that might be encountered in tactical law enforcement operations.

  • Protects First Responders for up to 8 hours under many hazardous conditions 
  • First PAPR to have CBRN approval for tight fitting facepieces
  • Choice of 3 proven positivepressure facepieces, the MSA Millennium® or the MSA Ultra Elite®
  • Choice of CBRN cartridge or multi-gas / particulate chemical cartridges for non-CBRN use

Features MSA's PROVEN C420 Blower Motor

Industry trusted, with over 50,000 fielded in various U.S. military programs, the C420 Motor-Blower is ideal for filtering contaminants from ambient air and providing a constant airflow of at least 115 lpm to the user’s facepiece. This provides an OSHA-assigned protection factor twenty times greater than APR, due to positive pressure in the mask. The C420 is available with 2 batteries that can be “hot-swapped” during warm environment use. The Lithium-Sulfur Dioxide mission battery has an 8-hour run-time. The Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable battery has a 4-hour run-time. The motor-blower will not interfere with radio communications, as it is EMI shielded to MIL-STD-461C. The C420 comes complete with the motor blower, belt, airflow indicator, and breathing tube.
