3M P95 filter for nuisance levels of organic vapours and acid gases. They’re compatible with 3M respirators series 6000, 7000 and Ultimate FX (FF-400). NIOSH 42 CFR 84 approved. Sold in pairs, 50 pairs/case.
This type of filter is made with Advanced Electret Media, which is a fireproof and waterproof material. It is certified P95 which means it captures at least 95 % of the particles in the air. The letter "P" stands for "oil proof".
These filters protect one from certain metallic vapours coming from welding, brazing, cutting and other applications which include the heating of metal. These filters may be used to protect one from low concentration of ozone. In any case should these filters be used for protection from nuisance level of ozone or other gases and organic vapours.
They can be used for protection from processing minerals, coal, iron ore, flour and other dusty substances, and oil based liquids and sprays that do not emit harmful vapours.
They have been designed to be used when manipulating oil based liquids from sprays that emit harmful concentration of acid vapours like sulphur dioxide (SO₂), hydrogen fluoride (HF) and/or chlorine (Cl). These filters may be used in environments with low concentrations of acid gases. One should never use this type of respiratory protection in environments where one can be expose to a concentration 10 times higher than the exposure limit set by the CNESST.
These filters help prevent the inhalation of certain airborne biological particles like mold, Bacillus anthracis (Anthrax), Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Tubercle bacillus Koch) the main causative agent of tuberculosis, pandemic flues (H5N1, H1N1), etc. However, it cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness or disease. Due to the nature of some contaminants, the exposure limit value of some products and byproducts haven’t been quantified by governmental agencies, thus wearing a respirator doesn’t necessarily protects you.
Do not use for:
Do not use on a beard and other facial hair or if the user suffers from a condition that prevents him from having direct contact with the respirator’s sides. One should never use a respirator regardless of the type of cartridge in use whenever concentrations of gases and vapours exceed 10 times the admissible limit set by the CNESST or any other regulation applicable. Avoid sandblasting and oxygen deprived environments (an atmosphere with less than 19,5 % oxygen).
Maintenance and service life:
Since this is a disposable product, there is no maintenance. It has been design for an approximate service life of 40 hours or 30 days depending on which one comes first. These numbers are in no way a reference since every work environments is different. The manufacturer’s limitations must be followed.
