EVA (Evolutionary Air), the newest Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) from Bullard, is now approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) with a combination chemical and particulate filter that protects users against organic vapors, chloride dioxide, chlorine, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, sulfur dioxide and particulates at a high efficiency level.

EVA (Evolutionary Air), the newest Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) from Bullard, is now approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) with a combination chemical and particulate filter that protects users against organic vapors, chloride dioxide, chlorine, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, sulfur dioxide and particulates at a high efficiency level.

Bullard designed EVA from input received from users and experts in the field and the result is a technologically-advanced PAPR that offers constant air flow in a compact, ergonomic, lightweight design. Offering 1,000 Assigned Protection Factor, EVA is equipped with an innovative Active Flow Technology system that automatically maintains constant air flow and an easy-to-read fuel gauge that lets the user quickly check the units battery status.

Additional EVA features include:

-- Two distinct audible alarms that notify wearers of low battery and low air flow. The sound from the alarms travels through the breathing tube directly to the users ear.

-- A long-lasting 10,000-hour brushless motor that is designed for long-term reliable use.

-- Two-speed blower so the user can choose more or less cooling and air flow.

-- Filter locking tab that notifies the user that the filter is in place with both a visual indication and audible click.

-- Contoured belt made of closed-cell, chemically-resistant foam shaped to contour to the wearers back for extra comfort.

EVA is NIOSH approved with Bullard Tychem® Hoods and Loose-Fitting Hoods, Spectrum® Series Full Facepiece, and the FAMB Series Half-Mask.
