MIRA Safety MB-90 Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

Product Description

This detachable unit upgrades your standard gas mask to a powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR mask) that uses an integrated blower instead of the user's natural breathing for improved airflow and positive pressure within your gas mask. 

MIRA Safety's PAPR is based on an enhanced design from the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF), modified to use standard AA batteries, and available at a third of the closest competitor's price. Users will breathe more easily and comfortably while wearing a PAPR respirator. Still, it's ideal for those with a limited lung capacity who may not otherwise be able to wear a mask.

  • 90 L/min of constant airflow for comfort and easier breathing
  • Compatible with all 40mm NATO standard threaded gas masks for convenient interchangeability
  • Uses easily accessible, standard AA batteries for up to 12-hours of run time

Key Features of the MB-90 PAPR:

  • Compact, lightweight blower mounts to your belt or pack, then connects to your gas mask via a standard 40mm NATO hose
  • Compatible with any traditional 40mm NATO threaded gas mask
  • Filters attach directly to the PAPR unit instead of the gas mask for improved mobility
  • Slim form allows for use in tight/confined spaces
  • Originally developed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense for rugged, combat-ready use
  • Adapted by an Israeli defense contractor to meet MIRA Safety specifications, with improved components and housing
  • Provides up to 90 l/min of sustained airflow
  • Uses affordable, easy-to-find AA batteries (up to 12 hours from 8 batteries)
  • Impact-resistant polycarbonate design for rugged performance

 The MIRA Safety MB-90 Powered Air Purifying Respirator fundamentally transforms and improves the way any gas mask works

With any standard gas mask, including our MIRA Safety CM-6M and CM-7M, your lung power pulls air through the filter that removes toxins and potential threats.

That sounds simple, but in practice, it's not always so easy. Filters increase breathing resistance, and any negative pressure gas mask will cause you to tire faster than you would without one. It can be distracting, but worse still—not everyone has the lung power to use a negative pressure gas mask. 

Children, those with respiratory issues, or anyone who can't blow up a large balloon can't use most gas masks. Not to mention, the added weight of strapping filters to your face can make wearing a gas mask cumbersome over time. 

The design of our new powered air-purifying respirator addresses all of those issues.

Weighing just 1.8lb on its own, our PAPR straps to your belt and uses two 40mm CBRN filters. Then, the hose connects directly to your mask, reducing your mask's overall weight for improved mobility. Switch the blower on, and the unit instantly provides 90 liters/min of airflow drawn through the attached filters.

As a result, you'll have an easier time breathing, maneuvering, and doing practically anything with your gas mask. The unit can still be used if the batteries are fully depleted, but it reverts to a standard negative pressure system. With a quick swap of the AA battery unit, it's right back in action.

Even more importantly, a powered air-purifying respirator can potentially make your mask even safer by creating a positive pressure environment inside the mask…

By feeding such a high rate of airflow directly into your gas mask, our PAPR becomes a positive pressure respirator that creates an additional layer of protection around the edges of your mask, ensuring that dangerous particles are kept out. 

This is the same principle that helps PAPR hoods work, even though they don't have the additional seal you get from a CBRN gas mask.

Our MB-90 PAPR is a direct upgrade from the Israeli military issue, with multiple improvements and a modified battery bay that will work with AA batteries that you can find practically anywhere. Eight AA batteries provide up to 12 hours of runtime.

Most PAPR's on the market work only with NiMH and LiSO2 batteries, which are prohibitively expensive and difficult to find. The MB-90 PAPR works with all three for ultimate flexibility.  

So upgrade your PPE kit today with an MB-90 PAPR and discover a whole new level of maneuverability and comfort. 

Standard PAPR Kit Includes:

  • MB-90 PAPR

________________________________________________________________________


Military surplus comes in a variety of different conditions based the three " " rule: What, Where, When.

  • Depending on what the item is will generally determine the amount of use and what it was used for. This is important because some items do not endure the torture of being in the field for prolonged periods of time, while others might.
  1. Ex: Dress Uniforms are not worn in combat, therefore generally, there is lighter use than issued combat/working uniforms.

  • Knowing where the item most likely was issued/stored will generally determine the environment it was exposed to. This is important because some items are exposed to harsher conditions than others, or are straight from storage.
  1. Ex: Uniforms & Gear issued in the Vietnam War saw extreme heat and moister, giving those items specific textures/smells/common problems, while the same items issued to troops in occupied Europe do not have those attributes (Generally better conditions). 
  2. Ex: Uniforms & Gear stored in a controlled environment (warehouses or similar areas) feel and smell different than if it is stored in a non-controlled environment (Random areas/outside/or exposed to elements)

  • Time is a huge factor, when something was issued generally determines the age of the item. As time goes by everything ages, this is the circle of life and it does apply to inanimate objects, like military surplus. Items will show signs of age, typically tarnished metal/fading/stains/rips/holes/rot/smell. The exception to the rule is NOS ( New old stock) items or ones stored carefully in controlled environments.
  1. Ex: Uniforms & Gear from World War 2 are generally made of canvas/leather/twill or HBT fabric, and are close to 100 years old. These items have more than likely seen combat or were reissued in the Korean or Vietnam Wars. Extensive use and the fact that they are almost a century old will reflect the condition & price. This applies to any era. 
  2. Ex: Uniforms & Gear from the original factory box, or items stored carefully in controlled environments will generally retain their durability and "new" look. The age of an item sometimes is not a factor BUT only when it is properly stored or carefully looked after.
