SAVER Highlight: CBRN Air-Purifying Respirators [August 2016]   [open pdf - 461KB]

"Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) air-purifying respirators (APRs) consist of a facepiece with a head harness and a CBRN canister that filters air to remove contaminants upon inhalation. These devices are worn by responders to protect them from inhaling harmful contaminants that may be present when responding to CBRN incidents.As a SAVER Program Technical Agent, Savannah River National Laboratory conducted a comparative assessment of CBRN APRs to assist responders with procurement decisions. Prior to the assessment, a focus group was conducted to identify equipment selection criteria for the assessment, determine evaluation criteria, and recommend assessment scenarios. A market survey was also conducted to provide a snapshot of the commercial marketplace."
