Anti-Contamination "BLU" Suit

Category: Worker Health & Safety > Personal Protective Equipment > Body Protection
Reference # : Model No :

This garment is approved for protection against high radioactive contamination, where high air flow for heat stress cooling and maintaining a high protection factor (PF) is required. The system involves the integration of a high-powered blowing unit and four (4) high efficiency particle filter cartridges. The Micronel blowing unit enables the user to receive filtered air which is circulated to the user, thus insuring maximum cooling and protection. This suit system liberates the user of a conventional supplied air line, thus giving the worker total freedom of movement to perform his job function. http://www.frhamsafety.com/anti-c/blu_suit.htm
