Centurion introduces powered respirator kit

25 September 2020

THE LATEST powered respirator kit from Centurion offers an alternative to disposable respirators for workers looking for COVID-19 PPE with enhanced comfort and protection.

Lightweight, cool and comfortable, the ConceptAir provides 200L of filtered air per minute and will typically run for eight hours before it needs recharging. 

Centurion comments that, by contrast, disposable respirators need to be fitted tightly to work effectively which can make them hot and uncomfortable during prolonged use and they are generally not recommended to be worn for longer than 60 minutes. Users of disposable respirators also need to be clean shaven to ensure the mask achieves an adequate face seal during a fit test, whereas the ConceptAir provides full coverage for workers with facial hair. 

The ConceptAir is a TH2 certified product which ensures COVID-19 protection as well as protection against particulate hazards including dusts, fumes and mists when used with a P3 filter. The ConceptAir also has a lightweight flip-up polycarbonate visor to maximise all round vision.

The ConceptAir has been widely used among front line medics during the pandemic and is being adopted by workers in a variety of industries where respiratory protection needs to be worn for prolonged periods or where users are looking for enhanced protection. This includes within veterinary surgeries, among immigration and prison staff and in any scenario where workers need comfortable, reliable protection from a brand they can trust. The ConceptAir is also proving popular with those who work around aerosol generating procedures such as dentists because these practices increase the risk of viral transmission.   

Deryn Gilbey, head of marketing at Centurion, comments: “The ConceptAir is helping workers in a wide range of sectors to get back to work comfortably, safely and with confidence with end users describing it as a literal breath of fresh air in comparison to wearing a tight fitting respirator. What’s more we have a strong supply chain, so the ConceptAir is available on a fast turnaround.”
