Overview: Respiratory Protection Safety Equipment
Respiratory protection requires the user to select the correct filter type and required efficiencies for air purifying respirators to remove specific contaminants from the outside air.
A full range of half mask or full face piece personal respirators, disposable and reusable respirators, Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR), or natural breathing, continuous flow or pressure demand for supplied air systems, tight fitting or loose fitting masks, face pieces, hoods or helmets and SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) and EEBA (Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus) has to be reviewed depending on the quality of the outside air and its contaminants.
Each respiratory protection product has different air breathing filters comes are classified by type (Non Oil, Oil Resistant, and Oil Proof) and come in varying filter efficiencies. Respirator cartridges for contaminated air are coded according to the contaminant present: organic vapors, acid gases, ammonia, chloride dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen sulfide.
All Safety Products detailed information that can assist you in selecting the correct Personal Respiratory Equipment to ensure OSHA and ANSI compliance.
