Respiratory Protection Air Purifying Conformable Nose Clip Respirators for Dusty Conditions Cool Flow . Exhalation Valve The use of N-Series Respirators is typically limited only by hygiene, damage and increased breathing resistance. However, when working in very dirty or dusty Three Panel workplaces that may result in high filter loading (200 mg), service time should be limited to 8 hours of continuous or intermittent use, unless an evaluation is done to prove that extended use will not significantly degrade efficiency levels.
6 Advanced electret media When choosing a Respirator for Dusty Conditions, consider the following features: 3M Cool Flow Exhalation Valve A patented one-way valve for easy exhalation and cool, dry comfort. Conformable Noseclip Standard (S) or M-Noseclip (M). adjusts easily for fewer pressure points. Advanced electret media Advanced electrostatically- charged microfibers make breathing easier and cooler.
