Our free 3M™ Select and Service Life Software can help make selecting the appropriate respirators faster and easier. Just enter contaminants and their concentrations and the software analyzes the data and provides a record of your choices. The software can also help you estimate the service life of 3M™ Respirator Cartridges, which aid in maintaining you OSHA-required cartridge change schedule for gas and vapor cartridges.
Includes the 3M™ Service Life Indicator, an end-of-service-life indicator (ESLI) that can help users determine when to change cartridges in appropriate environments. See User Instructions to determine if the indicator is appropriate for your work environment. NIOSH approved against certain organic vapors and particulates.
The 3M™ Organic Vapor Service Life Indicator Cartridge 60921i incorporates 3M™ Service Life Indicator technology to help answer the question that every respirator user must answer — “when should I change my cartridges?”
When used in appropriate environments, the 3M™ Service Life Indicator can provide a simple, visual tool that can help users determine when to change their cartridges and provide confidence in protection. (See User Instructions to determine if the indicator is appropriate for your work environment. ) It’s designed to indicate service life based on individual exposure and respiratory use patterns, allowing the user to optimize cartridge use for their specific needs. The 3M™ Service Life Indicator is covered by a peel-back label to help protect it from overspray and debris.
The 3M Service Life Indicator can be used to complement your current cartridge change schedule. You must change your cartridge at the normally scheduled interval or when the ESLI indicates, whichever occurs first. In some cases you can use the ESLI as a primary method to determine cartridge change, replacing your current change schedule method. To find out if the 3M Service Life Indicator may be used as the primary method for determining your cartridge change-out schedule:
1) Perform exposure monitoring to quantify the organic vapor exposure levels in your workplace. Visit 3M.com/PPESafety for information on 3M™ Organic Vapor Monitors.
2) Enter the monitoring results in the 3M™ Select and Service Life Software (3M.com/ServiceLifeSoftware). If the ESLI is not applicable as a primary method, it may still be used to complement your current cartridge change schedule.
3M™ Organic Vapor/P100 Service Life Indicator Cartridge 60921i helps provide protection against certain organic vapors and particulates in a variety of environments. The cartridge/filter combination may be used for respiratory protection from certain organic vapors and non-oil and oil particulate concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) with half facepieces or 50 times PEL with quantitatively fit tested full facepieces. This cartridge/filter is not for use in environments that are immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH). Recommended applications for the cartridge/filter include chemical clean-up, chemical compounding, chemical transfer, laboratories. This cartridge/filter is commonly used in the following industries: chemicals, fiberglass manufacturing and transportation. See User Instructions to determine if the indicator is appropriate for your work environment.
This organic vapor cartridge/P100 filter combination works with 3M™ Half Facepieces 6000, 6500 7500 and Full facepieces 6000, FF-400 and 7800 Series with bayonet attachment holders. The cartridge/filter is NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) approved for environments containing certain organic vapors and non-oil and oil particulates. The cartridge/filter has been assigned the color code “Magenta/Black” in the NIOSH system.
Breathing organic vapors and particulates can pose a risk to your health. NIOSH, a Federal government regulatory agency, has tested and approved the 3M™ Organic Vapor/P100 Service Life Indicator Cartridge 60921i to help reduce exposure to certain organic vapors and particulates.
