The Drager X-Plore 8000 is a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) range. There is a choice of head tops, including half-masks, hoods, helmets or full face masks and visors where eye protection is needed, for example, in welding applications. Choose from two blower units: the X-plore 8500 for use in safe areas or the X-Plore 8700, suitable for hazardous areas; zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

Other system components include a four or eight-hour rechargeable battery and filters for particles (P3), gases, vapours and odours. A prefilter addition extends the life of the filters. For donning the X-Plore 8000,  belts with an optional comfort pad and a shoulder strap carry system are available. Standard and enhanced flexibility connection hoses meet diverse applications.

The system is designed to be as comfortable as possible, so users cannot be distracted and concentrate on the job at hand whilst adequately protected. Head tops are made for the best airflow and minimum discomfort. The hose is fitted with a special connector for ease of use featuring a 360° click adaptor.

The unit uses innovative technology to automatically detect the head top connected and sets the correct flow rate, thus minimising human error potential. An optical sensor prevents use without filters and indicates particle filter saturation. Alarms are audible, visual and vibrational. The system features uniform colour codes on all exchangeable elements and an error-proof hose connector.

Maintenance is minimal; the unit is self-checks. The modular nature of the components means they can be dismantled quickly for cleaning. IP65 protection prevents ingress from dust and water jets allowing easy decontamination.
