This high quality 4-in-1 respirator also offers an incredibly high respiratory protection to TH3, with a Nominal Protection Factor of 500 (UK APF 40) – the highest rating possible – so the wearer can always be perfectly assured of their safety.

Through the combination of the high capacity HEPA filters and the aerodynamically optimised pre-filter covers, the PowerCap® Infinity® delivers 160 litres per minute of clean air to the user with maximum battery efficiency. As an added bonus, filters can be effortlessly replaced using an intuitive quick-change bayonet system, and the key elements of the PowerCap® Infinity® – such as visor, peel-off visors, helmet, harness strap, turbo drive unit and carrier – are user-replaceable, allowing easy maintenance and cleaning.

The PowerCap® Infinity® safeguards the user, delivering real time diagnostics that monitor the system and the wearer twice per second. The unit is remarkably user-responsive, and reacts accordingly to periods of high respiratory demand – which is monitored and tailored for by continuously sustaining a positive pressure inside the respirator.

Incorporating the high performance JSP EVO®5 Olympus® industrial safety helmet and optical class 1 visor, the PowerCap® Infinity® offers great impact protection at speeds of up to 270 mph (tested using a 6mm steel ball bearing). The visor is ideal for any element with its k rated anti-scratch coating and replaceable peel-off visor – ultimately improving its lifespan.
