The 3M Advanced Particulate Filter 2296 is designed to make breathing easier while lasting longer. NIOSH approved for environments containing certain oil and non-oil based particles. 3M recommended for relief against nuisance level acid gases.
3M recommended for relief against nuisance level acid gases. Use with 3M Respirators 5000 Series or 3M Cartridge 6000 Series with 3M Adapter 502, or 3M Half and Full Facepieces 6000, 7000 and FF-400 Series with bayonet filter holders. When properly fitted, use in a variety of applications including welding, brazing, torch cutting, metal pouring, soldering, and exposure to lead, asbestos, cadmium, arsenic, and MDA for concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) with half facepieces or 50 times PEL with full facepieces. Full facepieces must be quantitatively fit tested to claim assigned protection factor above 10 in negative pressure mode. Please refer to specific provincial regulation for appropriate assigned protection factors for full face respirators. Also offers nuisance level relief from acid gases that are below the PEL. Nuisance level refers to concentrations not exceeding OSHA PEL or other applicable government occupational exposure limits, whichever is lower. The filter is both flame and water resistant. Do not use for respiratory protection against acid gases or in environments that are Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH). This filter is commonly used in the following industries: construction, general manufacturing, mining, and primary metals.
