PAPR stands for a powered air-purifying respirator, a portable piece of equipment that filters ambient air in your immediate environment. Specifically, the PAPR system uses a blower to pass the contaminated air through a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA), removing the contaminant and supplying purified air to the facepiece.
The main advantage of using PAPR systems is that they typically have a greater assigned protection factor, enabling professionals to work in hazardous environments while minimising the risk to their health. The higher the assigned protection factor, also reduces the risk of contaminates and particulates being exposed to their lungs.
