3M2097K Particulate Filter
The 3M 2097 P100 Particulate Filter has been developed with your respiratory needs in mind. Specially designed carbon layers remove nuisance levels of organic vapors.
The 2097 provides you and your workers:
• Comfort. 3M’s Advanced Electret Media (AEM) provides a lightweight, easy breathing combination not found in fiberglass containing filters.
• Versatile protection. The 2097 is well suited for a wide range of oil and non-oil based particulate contaminants. Ideal for welding, metal pouring, torch cutting, abatement or as a prefilter for certain chemical exposures.
• Simplicity. The versatility of this filter reduces, your inventory and training requirements.
• Compatibility. The 2097 can be used with 3M’s wide variety of half and full facepiece designs
• Exceptional filter efficiency. Passing NIOSH’s Pseries test criteria, the 2097 P100 filter provides a minimum 99.97% filter efficiency.
• Chemical manufacturing
• Welding • Brazing
• Torch cutting
• Metal pouring
• OSHA substance specific particle exposures: — Lead — Asbestos — Cadmium — Arsenic — 4,4, — Methylenedianiline (MDA) • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
• Solids such as those from processing minerals, coal, iron ore, cotton, flour, and certain other substances. • Liquid or oil based particles from sprays tat do not also emit harmful vapors. • Metal fumes produced from welding, brazing, cutting and other operations involving heating of metals. • Radioactive particulate materials such as uranium and plutonium. • Asbestos.
Do Not Use For: Gases and vapors above the OSHA PEL, including those present in paint spraying operations, unless combined with approved chemical cartridges. Sandblasting. This respirator filter does not supply oxygen. Aerosol concentrations that exceed 10 times the OSHA PEL with a half facepiece or 50 times the PEL with a full facepiece; or applicable government regulations, whichever is lower.
Time Use Limitation: If filter becomes damaged, soiled, or breathing becomes difficult, leave the contaminated area and dispose of the filter. If used in environments containing only oil aerosols, dispose of filter after 40 hours of use or 30 days, whichever is first.
