Mortech is proud to now offer the MAXAIR CAPR® Series: The No-Hose PAPR from Bio-Medical Devices International. In laboratories and autopsy suites working with agents that have a known potential for aerosol as well as contact transmission, additional protection may be provided by personal protective equipment such as the MAXAIR CAPR Systems.
The MAXAIR CAPR highly integrated design eliminates the conventional PAPR reliance on cumbersome air tubes and bulky, belt mounted blower units. When compared to conventional PAPRs and N95 respirator masks, the lightweight MAXAIR Helmets, with their positive pressure air flow and unique safety LEDs, standout as a superior method of personal respiratory protection.

MAXAIR’S noise level specifications are lower than conventional PAPRs; the average decibel level is typically below 62 db.

Currently there are four MAXAIR Systems to choose from that are the basis for the many different MAXAIR CAPR Outfits. Each system consists of a Helmet, a Battery, a Battery Belt, and a Charger.
The Helmet choices include –
    • 2081-03 for non-Hard Hat Outfits
    • 2084-03 for use with PR Hoods
    • 2083-03 for all Hard Hat Outfits
The Battery choices include –
    • 2500-36TSC, typically 8-10 hours/full charge
    • 2500-37TSC, typically 12-15 hours/full charge
  • The Belt is the 2000-76
  • The charger is the 2600-02.
To configure a complete MAXAIR Outfit, a choice of Head and Face Cover and NOTED mandatory peripherals must be included with the chosen System. (More graphical descriptions of the many different full Outfit options are provided on the MAXAIR website,

Yes, the NIOSH approval numbers for the different configurations are listed in the table below.
NIOSH Approvals – View Certified Equipment.

No. The MaxAir System is a positive pressure, loose fitting powered air purifying respirator that supplies 6 to 9 cubic feet per minute of airflow. OSHA does not require fit testing for positive pressure, loose fitting PAPRs.

Yes. After cleaning and disinfecting your MaxAir and replacing the comfort strips and single-use face covers, the MaxAir is ready for the next user.

Yes. all configurations fit users with facial hair, that wear glasses, and nearly all head sizes and shapes. No additional attachments are needed.

How much Airflow do I get with the MAXAIR?

The default factory setting is on Low which provides 6-7 cfm of airflow. The user can adjust the airflow switch, located at the posterior of the helmet, between Low (6-7 cfm), Medium (7-8 cfm), and High (8-9 cfm). This adjustment allows the user to match the air flow for widely varying work environments and activity levels.


OSHA states that all cuff configurations receive an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 25. The APF rating of N95 respirators is only 10, assuming they are properly fitted and worn. MAXAIR offers two filter options based on user preference. Both provide the same level of particulate filtration. However, the 2166-10 Nuisance Organic Vapor (N-OV) Filter Cartridge is a HE filter combined with charcoal odor filtration to provide an additional level of comfort and convenience.

How often does the filter need to be changed?

It depends upon the application, the enviornment where used, the frequency and duration of use, and the orgnaization’s protocol
for the prevention of cross contamination.
In addition, due to its self-monitoring system, the yellow LED will illuminate when airflow intake nears the threshold of 6 cfm (170
lpm), allowing the user ample time to exit the working environment, and change out a heavily loaded filter.
Otherwise, filter change-out a minimum of every six-to-twelve months is recommended.
