HEPA filter for respiratory protection from solid particles. Compatible with 3M TR-600 Versaflo powered air purifying respirator (PAPR). It is certified HEPA which means it captures at least 99.97 % of the particles in the air. Sold by the box of 5 units/40 units. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery.
TR-600 HEPA filters don’t require the use of a filter cover like their prior model. Even without the filter cover, this model of filter is NIOSH approved. It is however recommended to use the cover filter RVTR6700FC to help protect the filter from physical damage and liquid spill. The RVTR6700FC filter cover is also used to hold the RVTR6600 prefilter or RVTR662 spark arrestor in place in order to extend the service life of the HEPA filter.
3M manufacturer’s code: RVTR6710N-5
This type of respiratory protection system is recommended for work that will loosen solid particles in the air such as work in health facilities, food factories and pharmaceutical laboratories. The HEPA filters which comes with the kit protect one from most airborne particles with an 99,97% efficiency.
This type of filters helps 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:
This model of filter does not offer a protection against vapours and gases. It is strongly discouraged to wear any kind of respirator for application with sandblasting. It is also highly advised to follow the manufacturer’s recommendation towards the product’s limits. HEPA filters may offer a protection from 25 times or 1000 times the permissible exposure limit according to the chosen facepiece. One should never use a respirator in an oxygen deprived environment (an atmosphere with less than 19,5 % oxygen).
Maintenance and service life:
Since this is a disposable product, there is no maintenance. In theory, one should use the RVTR971 airflow indicator to assess the state of the equipment. However, the motor/blower is equipped with a system that alerts you in case the filter is soon to be saturated; one must thus change the cartridge. The filter’s service life depends of its conditions of use; it is thus difficult to estimate how long it will last. One sure thing is that the more the work environment is contaminated, the faster the filter will get saturated. Please follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
