What is a supplied-air respirator?

A supplied-air respirator (SAR) supplies clean air from a compressed air tank or through an air line, as opposed to an air-purifying respirator that filters air from the workroom area.

The air supplied in tanks or from a compressor must meet certain standards for purity and moisture content.

The air supply could either be a low-pressure or high-pressure source.

A low-pressure source would be an ambient pump, like an air compressor designed specifically for respiratory protection applications.

A high-pressure supply source would be either a cylinder or “cascaded” cylinders of breathing air. It could also be a compressed air supply within a facility as long as it is filtered and monitored to ensure it meets the requirements for breathing air purity.
