“The PureFlo 3000 offers true value through high efficiency, durability, compatibility and improved safety” said Rahul Arora, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Optimized for maximum mobility, the series combines respiratory with head, face, eye, and optional hearing protection for use in light-to-medium duty environments. In addition, the series eliminates snag hazards because it has no belts, hoses, or cables, and its loose-fitting design ensures it can be safely used by individuals with beards or prescription eyeglasses without requiring extensive fit testing.”
