May 28, 2015

Carbondale, PA, U.S. and Stranraer, U.K. May 28, 2015. Gentex Corporation, a global leader in industrial safety solutions, will demonstrate their comprehensive line of Pureflo® respiratory products, featuring their powered air purifying respirators (PAPR), at this year’s AIHce Conference in Salt Lake City, May 30th through June 4th.

The lightweight Pureflo PAPR respirators come in two versions, head or waist mounted. The head mounted Pureflo Electronic Systems Management (ESM) Powered Respirators are fully contained in-the-helmet PAPR systems with no trailing leads or hose, making them ideal for general industrial use where mobility is key. Pureflo HYDRAPAPR respirators provide filtration through a waist mounted twin filter blower unit, and offer multiple head top options, including a selection for welding applications. Both systems include electronic warning devices for wearer awareness, and protect against particulate hazards and organic vapors below the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL), with Pureflo HYDRA providing additional protection against acid gases below the PEL.

“Gentex is dedicated to continuing and improving the Pureflo line of industrial respirators”, said L.P. Frieder, president, Gentex Corporation.  “We’re excited to present our technologically advanced Pureflo respirators at AIHce and to have them as part of our combined portfolio of industry leading industrial safety solutions.”

Proven in a wide variety of heavy and light duty industries and by numerous multi-national organizations, the wide range of Pureflo industrial respirators can be configured to match exact customer needs. “Our Pureflo powered and air supplied industrial respirators are among the highest performing, cost effective protective systems available on the market today,” commented Barry Phillips, senior director of industrial safety products at Gentex Corporation. “We look forward to presenting our Pureflo systems at AIHce and continuing to evolve them even further with our now more robust design, technical and manufacturing capabilities.”

Gentex Corporation acquired Interactive Safety Products Inc. (Helmet Integrated Systems Limited) in 2014 combining their resources and lines of personal protection and situational awareness solutions to deliver a new level of capability and value to their global customers.

The Gentex corporate booth is located at #1222. Pureflo product experts will be on hand to meet with customers and media throughout the show. For more information on Pureflo and Gentex’s full line of industrial safety product portfolio, visit www.gentexcorp.com.
