3M HEPA filter for respiratory protection by Versaflo powered air purifying respirator (PAPR). This filter captures efficiently at least 99.97 % of the particles in the air. 5 filters/box, 1 box/case.
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.
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 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 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 using the airflow indicator to inspect the state in which the filter is before starting to work. This model of filter is disposable, thus maintenance isn’t needed. Trying to clean it with compressed air, a vacuum or soaking it water will be ineffective and may even break it.
