K80E T8A MSHA

K80E T8A MSHA

How Does it Work

The K80E MSHA of respirators work by means of slight over pressure which is created inside the helmet by a flow of filtered air. A battery powered blower unit draws air through filters and send it through a breathing tube to the inside of the helmet.  The Blower unit, filters and battery are worn at waist.

Applications:

  • Mining, Construction, Tunneling
  • Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Shotcrete Application
  • Working with Fiberglass and Minerals

Features and Benefits

PROTECTION: K80E MSHA Respirators with helmets are the only power assisted devices which can protect the head, face, eyes, ears and respiratory system against particles and gases. Inspired filtered air is sent by a blower unit through a breathing tube to the inside of the helmet creating a slight overpressure. The continuous flow of air prevents visor misting and reduces breathing strain.

COMFORT: The K80E MSHA is easy to don and use also by inexperienced workers. Lightweight and of simple design, it is comfortable to wear even in harsh working conditions.

LIFE: The use of carefully selected first choice raw materials guarantee a product average life expectancy of over ten years.

Standard Components

  • one K80E MSHA helmet,
  • one blower unit,
  • one battery charger,
  • two ZP3 (HE) filters,
  • one belt,
  • one breathing tube,
  • one electric cord,

AIRFLOW INDICATORS: The sphere type airflow indicator monitors the flow rate to ensure the airflow in the system is maintained so workers are protected at all times.

HELMETS: The inner headband of the K80E MSHA, is adjustable from 53 to 63 cm, blocks the helmet round the forehead allowing for excellent visibility when the worker turns his head. Ultraviolet sun rays are repelled by the white color of the helmet.

COLLARS: The polyamide collar closes efficiently and comfortably around the worker’s neck.
