Everything You Need to Know About the Particulate Respirator

August 06, 2021

We all know that wearing masks is a key measure to inhibit transmission and save lives. But do you know about the particulate respirator? As a particulate respirator supplier, I’d like to introduce what the it is.

What the Particulate Respirator Is

Particulate respirator is a protective device that purifies the air you breathe. In daily life activities, you may be exposed to pollutants in the air around you. Particulate respirator can form a tight seal around your nose and mouth. It essentially protects your lungs from these tiny but potentially dangerous particles.

When You Can Wear Particulate Respirator

Engaging in Activities Can Generate Dust

For example, when sanding, painting, cleaning, grinding, etc., please wear Respirator. For example, use a chainsaw for construction or tile laying, fertilize yards and gardens, or mowing grass.

In Artistic Activities

Artists, craftsmen and hobbyists often work in dust, smoke, spray and mist. Art supplies such as charcoal and paint contain any number of other potentially hazardous materials. For example, potters are at risk of inhaling clay particles and glass dust. Wearing Particulate respirator is essential for lung protection and helps ensure that you enjoy your favorite activities for a long time.

When Using Chemicals

When using chemicals (such as bleach household cleaning products), wear Particulate Respirator because these chemicals can irritate the nasal cavity and sinuses.

To Prevent Allergens

Especially in spring and autumn, seasonal pollen and mold spores are usually the worst. These allergens can cause respiratory distress such as sneezing, itchy eyes, itchy throat, and asthma. Allergy sufferers can use it to avoid breathing allergens in the air.

In Case of Emergency

You should equip each of your family members with at least one Particulate Respirator in your emergency kit. After earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, etc., dust, smoke, ash, and mold spores are often filled with air, which can damage lung tissue. Particulate respirator can provide valuable protection under uncertain and rapidly changing conditions.

1.In order to be effective, wear a respirator during the entire exposure to contaminants. If the respirator becomes difficult to breathe or becomes damaged, move to an uncontaminated area. And before returning to the contaminated area, be sure to replace the respirator.

2.This particulate respirator does not provide oxygen. Do not use in an environment where the oxygen content is less than 19.5%.

3.Be sure to refer to the usage time limit in the user manual to determine how long the respirator can be worn before it needs to be replaced.

4.Remember that the respirators with filters must be replaced if they are damaged, dirty, or cause breathing problems. Also, if the mask tears or the strap loses elasticity, replace the respirator.

5.Before using, store the respirator in its original packaging, away from contaminated areas, dust, sunlight, extreme temperatures, excessive moisture and harmful chemicals.

6.Before using, be sure to check the product in accordance with the instructions for use and perform user seal inspection. If you cannot achieve the correct sealing effect, please do not use it.
