RPB PX5 PAPR - Powered Air Purifying Respirator - HEPA filtered breathing air supply


The New Standard in Powered Air Purifying Respirators

The RPB® PX5® is a battery powered air purifying respirator fan unit which draws in contaminated air from the users immediate vicinity, passing it through internal filters, and supplying the filtered air to an approved RPB® loose fitting respirator head top.

  1. HEPA filter with a minimum efficiency of 99.97% 0.12 micron.
  2. Built in audible, visual and physical safety alarms alert operators when filters need to be replaced, or the airflow is obstructed.
  3. Tested to IP 65 for water and dust ingress while in operation.
  4. For more information please contact us at (833) 408-0500 or email us here.



NIOSH CERTIFIED FOR USE WITH with Nova 3, T200T-LinkZ-LinkZ-Link+, Z3 or Z4 Respirators

APPLICATIONS INCLUDE Spray painting, coating and confined space applications. Pharmaceutical manufacturing. Metal fabrication, welding, and grinding. Chemical, pesticide and materials handling. Chemical stripping. Waste management. And many more!

Made in the USA with components also made in the USA.


    1. Lightweight Compact Design - With the complete system weighing just 2.55lbs, the already light PX5 strategically distributes weight through vertical mounting and contouring to the users back.
    2. Decontaminable - Sleek, considered lines and surfaces combined with a quick release belt mounting system ensures the decontamination process can be as simple as possible.
    3. Ingress Protection - With a completely sealed housing, the PX5 has been engineered to meet IP65 in full operating trim.
    4. Battery - Sealed inside the unit, the long-life lithium-ion battery is protected so it will not disconnect or bump off while in operation. Lasting 12+ hours on fan speed 1, 10+ hours on fan speed 2 and 8+ hours on fan speed 3, the PX5 will supply clean filtered breathing air for an entire shift.
    5. High Efficiency (HE) Filter - The filter media removes up to 99.97% of particulates down to 0.12 microns.
    6. Mount Lock System – The PX5 unit attaches to the flexi-belt (fitted with either a standard belt or FR rated belt), via our intuitive mount lock system.
    7. User Interface – Intuitive LED user interface indicates airflow, fan speed and battery level.
    8. Alarming - Visual, audible and vibrating alarms alert the user to low battery level, or when airflow falls below the minimum requirements due to the filter needing replacing or an obstructed air flow.
    9. Filter Safety - The filter door cannot mount to the unit unless a filter is fixed in place. The PX5 cannot unknowingly be operated without a filter being installed to ensure users are always breathing clean filtered air.

A description stating which types of breathing tube they are compatible with would have given a 5 star rating. I needed to buy new breathing tubes
