The 3M™ Gas/Vapour Filters 6000 Series have bayonet type fittings to attach them to the 3M range of half and full face pieces. Often there is also a need to be protected simultaneously against gas/vapours and particulates in the workplace air. The 5925 particulate filter is used to do this in conjunction with the 3M™ Filter Retainer 501 to provide dual protection.
When there is a need for combination gas/ vapour and particulate protection (e.g. paint spraying), fitting of the 5925 particulate filter and the 501 retainer over the required 60x gas/vapour filter will give a combination gas/ vapour & particulate filter. These combination style filters will be capable of providing protection against dusts, mists and fumes as well as specific gas/vapours.
The 5925 filter meets the performance requirements of AS/NZS1716.
It is a P2 rated particle filter for use against mechanically & thermally generated particulates at levels up to 10 times the Exposure
Standard on a half face mask and 50 times on a full face mask.
The 5925 filter should be installed with the printed side down i.e. facing the gas filter and the clear side facing out. This allows details to be read even after use. It also provides improved service life as the non printed side has a top layer designed to reduce clogging.
For protection against certain particles, dusts, mists and fumes such as sanding, grinding, cutting, drilling metal, masonry, wood, concrete and mist droplets from spraying.
Any filtering respirator should not be used for protection at airborne concentrations of contaminants above the relevant Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) levels.
**To be fitted with the 3M 6000 Series Cartridges and the 3M 501 Retainer **
This cartridge/filter, when used for protection against the contaminants as specified, is capable of providing the following protection levels:
With a 3M 6000/7500 Series Half Face Respirator: for particles, for airborne concentrations up to 10 times the Workplace Exposure Standard (WES)
With a 3M 6000/7800 Series Full Face Respirator: for particles, for airborne concentrations up to 50 x WES
