3M™ 2138 P3 R Particulate FilterSolid and liquid particles, ozone, nuisance level organic vapours/acid gas
This NIOSH-approved P3 particulate cartridge helps provide high-efficiency respiratory protection in environments containing particulates. The filter should be used with 3M™ Breathe Easy™ Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) systems.
NIOS H-approved P3 particulate cartridge used for Breathe Easy systems from 3M for high-efficiency respiratory protection against particulates.
Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are motorized systems powered by a battery pack that draws air through a filter or cartridge to provide respiratory protection to the wearer. The blower unit can be mounted on the waist, face, or head, depending on the system selected. Potential benefits include:
- Certain PAPR systems provide a higher level of respiratory protection than non-powered air filtering respirators
- Constant flow of air can provide cooling for the worker, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer
- Loose-fitting headgear options provide respiratory protection without the need for a tight face seal or fit testing
- Battery-powered blower pulls the air through the filter resulting in no additional breathing resistance to the wearer
