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.
Made in the USA.
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.
Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD) from crushed coal media/residue
Isocyanates Abatement (Automotive, building insulation, coatings)
Lead Dust (abrasive or abraded (eg. lead-based paint))
Cold Air Tube Assembly - Cool incoming air by up to 32°F (18°C)
Flow Control Valve - Regulate the incoming airflow
A ratchet adjustable neck pad ensures appropriate head support. The molded inner 'Clever Fit Padding' design (patent pending) helps absorb sound, protect hearing and is fully adjustable. It allows for unique customization to correctly fit all users and is easily removable and washable.
