Respirator is lightweight

CleanSpace Technology has made available its CleanSpace EX-powered air-purifying respirator. Weighing 1.1 pounds, the respirator is designed to be worn comfortably for extended periods of time. The respirator provides up to eight hours of run time, can be used by workers in chemical-handling applications and reportedly is certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Tripod light illuminates dark work areas

DEWALT® has introduced its 20V MAX Cordless Tripod Light and 11-inch Corded/Cordless 20V MAX Jobsite Fan. The 20V MAX Cordless Tripod Light has three brightness settings and illuminates dark work areas with a maximum output of 3,000 lumens. The light's telescoping design reportedly sets up easily and collapses for portability and storage. The 11-inch Corded/Cordless 20V MAX Jobsite Fan delivers up to 500 constant fan speed at its maximum speed when powered with a 4.0h battery and also can run when plugged into a power source. Featuring a pivoting head and variable speed switch, the fan can be hung from hooks or mounted by screw or tripod to circulate air, cool down work areas and help dry wet materials. Both products are compatible with DEWALT 20V MAX and FLEXVOLT® batteries.
