Like the half-mask elastomeric respirator, this respirator is a tight-fitting, air-purifying respirator with replaceable filters or cartridges attached to a rubber or silicone facepiece. It needs to be fit tested. This is a loose-fitting facepiece powered air-purifying respirator, or PAPR.
3M Particulate Respirator 8233 N100 is a disposable 3M Particulate Respirator 8233 N100 is a disposable particulate respirator that is designed to help provide reliable respiratory protection of at least 99.97% filtration efficiency against certain non-oil based particles.
3M Paint Sanding Respirator is used for non-harmful 3M Paint Sanding Respirator is used for non-harmful dusts from sanding grinding sawing and insulating particles. The advanced filter makes for easier breathing while the M-nose clip allows for fewer pressure points and greater comfort.
A respirator is a device designed to protect the wearer from inhaling particulate matter, including airborne microorganisms, fumes, vapours and gases. There are two main categories: the air-purifying respirator which forces contaminated air through a filtering element, and the air-supplied respirator in which an alternate supply of fresh air is delivered.
A supplied air respirator (SAR) is a piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) for workers in an environment where the air is contaminated, harmful or uncomfortable for breathing. This PPE provides breathable air continuously or on pressure demand from either a cylinder or a pipe connected to an air-line, compressor, air pumps, air purifier or surface supply hose.
