A superior PAPR system in every way with a very short payback period.

Does no one in your company do this and do you suspect this will never change? No problem. The E3000X is certified with integrated flow measurement, so you will always comply with standards and legislation… Safe for the welder and the employer! Besides “compliance” and safety, this PAPR system is superior in purification (TH3 … 10x cleaner than a TH2) and in payback time thanks to a cost-saving pre-filter system.
