New Air Purifying Respirator Series

New Air Purifying Respirator Series:
Dräger X-plore developed for the user by the user. Emphasis on increased comfort and easier handling.

Dräger Safety AG & Co. KGaA, Lübeck together with users of air purifying respirators worldwide have developed a new solution for respiratory protection, Dräger X-plore. The Dräger X-plore range currently consists of two half masks, one full face mask, and a complete and compatible filter range for a wide range of applications. New materials, modern designing, along with years of expertise ensure that the customer requirements – safety, comfort, and user-friendliness are met

Dräger X-plore 3300 & 3500
There are two different types of half masks: Dräger X-plore 3300 and Dräger X-plore 3500. Dräger X-plore 3300 is a low-maintenance half mask constructed from a TPE material (thermoplastic elastomere), designed for short term applications. It is an ideal and cost effective solution especially for contractors in construction or painting industries. The second version, the Dräger X-plore 3500 is an ideal choice for demanding, long-term operations. It is constructed from a new material, DrägerFlex, which is highly resistant and extremely hypoallergenic – especially for sensitive skin. This material provides a soft and flexible seal on any face.
Both masks are available in three different sizes: small, medium, and large. The flexible nose section seals on all different types of noses and easily fits with safety glasses and goggles. The new FlexiFit head harness made from a flexible TPE comfortably fits to different head sizes and sits unnoticeable even under a safety helmet. Thanks to the new innovative ‚X‘ crossover strap system, the mask can easily be donned and adjusted with an even weight distribution and a secure seal. Both masks are suitable for a wide range of industrial applications and can also be easily combined with other personal protective equipment, i.e. welding and grinding shields.

Dräger X-plore 5500
The Dräger X-plore 5500 full face mask completes the new X-plore mask series. Its design is based on the highly successful Panorama Nova mask. The mask body is constructed from a durable EPDM mix (Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Rubber) and has a unique double-layer face seal with triple sealing action. The Dräger X-plore 5500 comes in a universal size: 3 sizes fit one. The wide visor guarantees an excellent field of vision and offers a high degree of mechanical and chemical resistance.

Dräger X-plore Filter Series with bayonet connection
The new Dräger X-plore filter range is suitable for a wide range of applications and fits to all of the masks in the X-plore series.
The Dräger X-plore Series masks are all dual-filter systems, which feature a new two-point bayonet connection. The filters can be easily and securely fastened into position (top-down direction). The filter connection is positioned so that the filters are worn out of the wearers field of vision, allowing the wearer to concentrate on his job, and not the mask.
