Air purifying respirators (APR) are essential safety equipment for workers exposed to particulates such as smoke or fumes, gases and vapors that are at atmospheric concentrations less than immediately dangerous to life and health. The respirators typically are made up of a number of separate elements depending on the design and intended use. That sometimes makes the selection and buying process more critical and complicated.
Two new kits from Sundström Safety, introduced recently by Supply Line Direct, help make the respirator selection process a lot easier.
The Sundström Basic Pack SR-90-3 features a thermoplastic elastomer air purifying half mask respirator. The Pro Pack SR 100 Respirator Kit features a silicone air purifying half mask respirator. Both are intended for use when maximum safety and breathing comfort are required. And both packs meet and exceed NIOSH standards.
The unique half mask respirator design in each kit significantly cuts inhalation/exhalation resistance, increases comfort and lengthens use time during low to strenuous work activities. Both masks feature an adjustable V-shaped latex-free elastic head harness with a large crown plate. They are easy to maintain, clean and disinfect. Both respirator kits feature a high-efficiency P100 particulate filter with minimum 99.997% filtration efficiency that protects against solid and liquid aerosols including oil.
The SR-90-3 Respirator Kit protects against organic gases and vapors. The kit includes a half mask, particulate filter, OV chemical cartridge, pre-filter, pre-filter holder, user seal check disc, ID label, storage box and user manual. The SR-90-3 kits sell for less than $50 each.
The Pro-Pack SR 100 Respirator Kit protects against organic gases, vapors and acidic gases. The kit includes a half mask, particulate filter, OV/SD/CL/HC/HF chemical cartridge, pre-filter, pre-filter holder, user seal check disc, ID label, storage box and user manual. The Pro-Pack SR 100 kits sell for less than $60 each.
In addition to the Sundström line, Supply Line Direct sells 3M respirators and Moldex respirators, including N95 respirators, as part of a complete safety equipment product line. A qualified safety expert should always specify respiratory and personal protection for specific settings and applications.
