3M Versaflo powered air purifying respirator unit features RVTR302N:
PAPRs, powered air purifying respirator are systems made to blow filtered air into the respiratory equipment, which provides air automatically rather than mechanically such as regular respirators. 3M Versaflo(Tm) differs from other PAPRs by its lightness, its ergonomic and its versatility which allows everyone, even bearded men to be protected when well installed. This type of equipment offers a protection up to 25 times the permissible exposure limit set by the CNESST or any other government regulation applicable. PAPRs minimize the effort put into breathing and can reduce build up heat inside the facepiece. It features a smart engine which adapts accordingly to the HEPA filter in use. It is also equipped with an alarm system - one audible and one LED – which alert the user to either a low battery or low airflow. This PAPR contains no natural rubber latex.
The RBS/433L facepiece consist of a hood that covers the head and neck. This kit is by design made to protect one from hostile environment filed with airborne contaminants. The hood is equipped with a waterproof membrane at the face. The head harness features 3 air outlets of which one is adjustable to improve the air distribution. The head harness improves also the comfort of the headgear. The facepiece consist of a woven and non-woven polypropylene layered membrane and a visor of laird plastic (PETG), a soft material providing a relatively good impact resistance. This type of facepiece has been mainly design for workers in health, food and pharmaceutical sectors. Please note that the RBS433L textile part of the hood is disposable to avoid any contamination, but the head harness is reusable.
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. It’s recommended for polishing, surfacing and smelting. The HEPA filters which comes with the kit protect one from most airborne particles with an 99,97% efficiency. The facepiece is disposable which is safer for users being exposed to substances that may stay on the textile surface, thus contaminating users if they had to wash the facepiece.
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:
This respirator does not offer a protection against vapours and gases. It can neither ensure the user intrinsic safety in an environment representing an explosion risk. It is strongly discouraged to wear any kind of respirator for application with sandblasting. It is also highly advised to stay away from environment that exceed 25 times the permissible exposure limit set by the CNESST or any other government regulation applicable. One should never use a respirator in an oxygen deprived environment (an atmosphere with less than 19,5 % oxygen).
Maintenance and service life:
For a safer performance, manufacturer’s recommendation must be followed. 3M recommends an inspection of the respiratory equipment before each use; to wash the respirator after each use; and to store the respirator back to its packaging.
One should never wash its respirator with any type of solvents since they can weaken some components which can affect the efficiency of the equipment. The engine, the battery and the HEPA filter must never be immersed in water.
