C40 Climate Control Device with Blast Helmet and Shroud

Advanced Abrasive Blasting Respirator - Adjustable Fit, NIOSH Approved

With breakthrough protection technology and previously unseen advanced comfort and functionality features, the Nova 3® is designed to advance safety and productivity for operators putting` in full shifts under the helmet.

Operators claim the Nova 3® is the lightest and most comfortable heavy industry respirator they've ever used. It's unique design distributes the weight of the helmet evenly across your head and shoulders making it feel light and comfortable, giving you more energy to enjoy life's best moments.

The ratchet adjustable padding system provides a custom fit and the molded side pads absorb sound to protect your hearing. They sit comfortably against your head to ensure the helmet moves with you.

All parts are field replaceable to minimize downtime and the padding system is machine washable for hygiene purposes.

Ideal For

No-Fit Test Respiratory Protection and Compliance

Great for Beards, New Guys, & Part-Timers

Finding time to shave in the morning shouldn't impact a blaster's long-term health. Forced air respirators surround the operator's head with a helmet or mask & face seal or shoulder shroud, keeping out dangerous blasting dust.

Productivity Boosting Comfort

Respirable breathing air is supplied from a clean air source like a compressed air tank or fixed line and can be cooled by up to 52°F (29°C) or warmed by up to 33°F (18°C) with the C40 Climate Control Device while keeping the visor free of fog.

Protection From Blasting Dust

Blasters work with a wide range of abrasive blasting media, many of which can have long term health effects due to exposure.

  1. Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD) from crushed coal media/residue
  2. Mesothelioma/Asbestos Abatement
  3. Isocyanates Abatement (Automotive, building insulation, coatings)
  4. Lead Dust (abrasive or abraded (eg. lead-based paint))
  5. Silicosis/Silica Abatement (Abrasive blasting media, construction, engineered surfaces counter tops)
  6. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
