A Versatile Respirator for Many Work Environments
Recommended applications include foundry operations, grinding, petrochemical manufacturing, processing of minerals, and welding. Industries in which this respirator is commonly used include construction, general manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, and transportation.
Cool Flow™ Valve Keeps Breathing Cool and Comfortable
Fitted with a 3M Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve, this respirator is ideally suited for work situations involving heat, humidity, or long periods of wear. The proprietary 3M Cool Flow valve is designed to release hot, humid exhaled breath quickly, helping to prevent an unpleasant build up of heat inside the facepiece - a significant cause of discomfort for respirator wearers.
Meets Government Safety Standards
This particulate respirator is NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) approved for environments containing certain non-oil based particles and provides N100 (99.97%) filter efficiency. Respirator helps provide protection against certain OSHA substance specific contaminants including lead, MDA, arsenic, and cadmium (excluding asbestos).
Importance of Respiratory Protection
Breathing hazardous particles can pose a risk to your health. NIOSH, a Federal government regulatory agency, has tested and approved the 3M Particulate Respirator 8233, which is designed to help reduce exposure to certain airborne particles.
Do Not Use For: Gases and vapors, including those present in paint spraying operations, oil aerosols, asbestos or sandblasting. Concentrations that exceed 10 times the PEL/OEL, specific OSHA standards, or applicable government regulations, whichever is lower. This respirator does not supply oxygen.
Important: Before use, the wearer must read and understand the user instructions inside the bag. Use For: Solids such a those from processing minerals, coal, iron ore, flour and certain other substances. Liquid or non-oil based particles from sprays that do not also emit vapors. Metal fumes produced from welding, brazing, cutting and other operations involving heating of metals. Radioactive particulate materials such as uranium and plutonium.
