The 3M Range of Powered and Supplied Air Respirators
3M Versaflo Respiratory Protective Systems are designed to protect workers in many industries and a broad range of
applications within those industries. They supply air to the wearers’ breathing zone allowing them to work safely and
comfortably for long periods of time.
™
™
Two types of 3M Versaflo Respiratory Systems are available:
™
™
3M Versaflo Powered Air Turbo units
3M Versaflo Supplied Air Regulators
These use a battery powered fan and motor to draw contaminated air
through a filter. The filter captures certain contaminants and clean air
is fed to the wearer.
These use breathable quality air supplied from a compressor via a
tube. The compressed air is regulated to a gentle flow and fed to the
wearer.
✓Suitable for use over long shifts - no increase in breathing
resistance
✓Can be used to protect against substances with poor warning
properties (taste/smell)
✓Can offer integrated head, eye and face protection
✓Can offer integrated head, eye and face protection
✓Allows the wearer to walk freely around the workshop without
any trailing tubes
✓Suitable for use over long shifts - no increase in breathing
resistance
✗Cannot be used to protect against substances with poor warning
properties (taste/smell)
✗Must not be used in conditions that are oxygen deficient or
immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH)

Compatibility
Both types of system deliver air to the wearer through a headtop. The headtops are designed to deliver respiratory protection and offer the
wearer other protection and features to suit their environment and work. The features incorporated into headtops solve many of the common
pitfalls associated with providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to workers. For example, headtops with combined eye protection
immediately take away the need to carefully assess the influence of a respirator on eye protection and vice versa.

Long term comfort
PPE only protects workers if it is worn properly. Through decades of experience in designing PPE and
in depth research we know that it will only be worn continuously if it is comfortable. In addition to high
levels of protection, the 3M Versaflo Powered and Supplied Air Systems have been designed with
comfort in mind. Many comfort features have been built into the turbos, regulators and headtops. The
Versaflo systems provide protection without the increase in breathing resistance associated with other
forms of respiratory protective equipment. This means that normal breathing effort is required which
greatly improves long term comfort.
™
™
Many other features are used to enhance comfort. For example, the ability to adjust the distribution of air flow into headtops allows wearers to
improve the comfort depending on their environment and personal preference. Weight, balance, adjustability, size and pressure on the head
and face have all been carefully considered throughout the design process.
Ease of use
The Versaflo systems are simple and intuitive to use thanks to the use of colour coded parts to guide
the wearer. Functional and adjustable parts are moulded in blue as are the catches that secure
some replaceable items e.g. the visors of helmets.
Protect your investment
The Versaflo powered and supplied air systems are intended to last for a long time. It is important
that they are well looked after to protect both the health of the wearer and the investment in the
equipment. Care and maintenance is straightforward and broadly breaks down into daily
cleaning and inspection, the replacement of consumable parts as required e.g. filters
and more thorough monthly inspections combined with the replacement of
worn or damaged parts. 3M have developed care and maintenance packs
including posters and record cards to help you.
Visit the care and maintenance pages at www.3M.co.uk/safety.
4
Versatility
The 3M Versaflo Respiratory Protective Systems are designed as modular systems where parts can be mixed and matched as needs and
preferences change. For example, if a user of a 3M Versaflo TR-300 Turbo and 3M Versaflo S-533 Hood now requires impact protection for
their head they can simply replace the hood with a helmet. If a process changes introducing a hazard that cannot be filtered the system may
be converted from powered air to supplied air by replacing the turbo unit with a 3M Versaflo V-500 Regulator.
™
™
This versatility allows users to adapt to changes in hazards, work practices and their personal preference.

Air quality
When using 3M Versaflo Supplied Air Regulators it is important
that the purity of the air from the compressor is tested to
ensure it is of breathable quality. In the UK the Control of
Substances Hazardous to Health regulations (COSHH) require
that the air is tested at least every 3 months. The 3M Air
Quality Test Service can carry out this testing for you.

Convenience of a hanging loop
Protection
The Versaflo S-Series Headcovers and Hoods meet the highest
respiratory performance requirements (TH3) for this type of product
when used with 3M Air Delivery Units. In addition they also provide eye
and face protection to EN166 – liquid splash and low energy impact!
™
Improved visibility
Visors have an excellent field of vision particularly downwards, with
reduced curvature for decreased reflections and glare.
Range of 4 fabrics
To suit more applications and needs.
Excellent airflow
All wearers benefit from excellent airflow distribution for improved
comfort and lower noise.
Choose between the integrated suspension head covers fully assembled and ready to use straight out of the box
and the premium maintainable hoods.
3M Versaflo S-Series Headcovers
™
™
Integrated suspension models offer the advantages of being fully assembled and ready to use straight out of the
box. They can be suitable for applications that require frequent replacement of the entire headtop assembly, such
as pharmaceutical manufacturing, or in situations where there is less soiling of the outer fabric. For disposal, the
suspension assembly and air inlet components can be quickly removed and separated for segregated waste streams,
where facilities are available. Available in two adjustable sizes to comfortably fit more wearers: S/M and M/L.

Premium maintainable hoods can be a highly cost-effective choice for some high disposal rate environments:
Just the soiled hood fabric is replaced, while the head harness and air ducting can be reused.
3M Hood S-655
Provides head, face, neck and shoulder
coverage, as well as eye and face
protection to EN166 - liquid splash and
low energy impact. Its respiratory seal
is a comfortable, knitted inner collar.
General purpose, cost-effective fabric.
3M Hood S-657
The S-657 uses a doubleshroud design
for its respiratory seal. The wearer
tucks the inner shroud into a shirt or
protective coverall, which allows excess
air to be channelled over the body,
providing additional comfort.
3M Hood S-757
Similar to the S-657 but with a fabric
specifically intended to help capture
paint overspray, minimizing the potential
for paint to flake off the wearer and onto
the work piece.
The fabric also has an internal film
barrier to help prevent paint contact
with skin or clothes.
3M Hood S-855E
As with the S-655 hood, its respiratory
seal is a comfortable, knitted inner
collar. The S-855E hood is manufactured
using a chemical-resistant fabric grey multi-layer barrier film extrusion
laminated to polypropylene spun bound.
