Making great things possible. Comfortably.
3M™ Aura™ Particulate Respirators 9300+Gen3 Series
Safety and comfort are a top priority at 3M. The third generation of Aura™ respirator brings a number of improvements, combining impressive new technology with ergonomic design.
The new Cool Flow™ Comfort Valve opens easier to help reduce heat inside the respirator, delivering a more comfortable wearer experience.

Features and Benefits
Convenience of use
› New upper and lower tabs › Simplified positioning and
adjustment on the face with new ‘grip’ feature on the valve
Cooler breathing – 3M™ Advanced Electret (Filter) Media (AEM)
› High charge on filter fibres attracts particles from a wider capture area, enabling less filter media to be needed
› Low initial breathing resistance

Clear vision
› Embossed top panel helps re-direct exhaled air, reducing fogging of eyewear
› Curved, low profile design conforms well to nose and eye contours – helps provide a good field of vision
› Designed to be compatible with safety eyewear from 3M

New 3M™ Cool Flow™
Comfort Valve
› Updated, modern and stylish design with clear cover lets you see new technology in action
› Allows more hot air out to reduce heat buildup and increase comfort
› Helps to minimise the risk of eyewear fogging from heat exiting through the media (certain models only)

Engineered for comfort
› New braided headbands for enhanced durability
› Colour coded for easy identification (blue for FFP2, red for FFP3)
› 3-panel flat-fold design

The New Standard in Intrinsically Safe Respiratory Protection.
3M™ Versaflo™ Intrinsically Safe Powered Air Respirator TR-800 Series
Intrinsically Safe (IS) Powered Air Turbo and Battery TR-800 Series are ATEX Certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres whilst offering the comfort, modularity, control and ease of use expected from the 3M™ Versaflo™ platform. The IS TR-800 Series is approved to Zone 0 requirements and so may be suitable for areas where potentially explosive atmospheres are expected and permanent in normal operations. As part of the 3M Versaflo family, when the IS TR-800 Series is combined with Versaflo headtops, belts, and other accessories, it becomes part of a CE-approved respirator system featuring: multiple speeds, audible and visual alarms and the ability to work with a wide variety of gas, vapour and particulate filters.

Features and Benefits

Comfortable airflow
› Three user selectable flow rates to maximise comfort › Controlled airflow delivers steady flow as battery
discharges or filter loads with particulates
Ease of use
› IS TR-800 Series display shows battery charge status and particulate filter loading status during use
› Battery charge indicator › Charge status is also indicated
by a useful LED display on the battery

Easy identification
› Bright yellow touchpoints to differentiate from non-IS versions of 3M™ Versaflo™ Product Family

Secure battery

› No user calibration of turbo required
› Electronic audible and visual alarm in case of low battery and/or low air flow

Battery protection
› Battery features bumpers to help absorb impacts

› Mechanical attachment of battery to help prevent battery
