These respirators do not supply oxygen. DO NOT use in oxygen deficient atmospheres (e.g. tanks or other poorly ventilated areas).The lifetime of a filter depends on many factors including the work rate, the air flow and the concentration of the contaminant in the atmosphere.A dust filter should be discarded and replaced with a new one if: • The respirator is removed while in a contaminated area. • Excessive clogging of the respirator causes breathing difficulty or discomfort. • The respirator becomes damaged. • The unused respirators are not in their protective packaging (once open they are activated).All respiratory equipment should be chosen in conjunction with BS EN 529:2005 “Respiratory Protective devises – Recommendations for selection, use, care and maintenance”.Do not use these respirators or enter in an area where: • The Oxygen concentration is not known or is less than 19%. • Contaminants or their concentrations are unknown or are known to be immediately dangerous to life or health. • Particulate concentrations exceed levels fixed by the applicable health and safety regulations or protection factors x NPF, whichever is lower. (Nominal protection factors: 4.5 for FFP1, 12.5 for FFP2 and, 50 for FFP3)
• Gases and/or vapours are present except for respirators designated as protecting against vapours, in which case vapour concentrations should not exceed 4.5 NPF. • The requirement for leak tightness is unlikely to be achieved if worn against a beard or facial stubble. • Do not use in explosive atmospheres. • Not to be used for firefighting.When transporting this product, retain in its original packaging and keep away from mechanical and chemical hazards.None of the materials or processes used in the manufacture of these products are known to be harmful to the wearer.
