PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION

Cartridge Selection

For assistance with 3M cartridges, call 3M OH&ESD Technical Service. Before using any of the

products, the user must read the specific use limitations and warning information on the cartridge packaging. For NIOSH approval numbers, please see approval label. The FR-C2A1 and FR-64 cartridges are approved as an assembly when used with the 3M FR-M40 facepiece.

Service Life of Chemical Cartridges and Filters

The useful service life of chemical cartridges will depend upon the activity of the wearer (breathing rate), the specific type, volatility and concentration of the contaminants and environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature. The integrity of the respirator should be checked and the cartridges replaced according to the cartridge change schedule or as soon as the wearer begins to smell or taste the contaminant(s) or irritation occurs.

Do not use when airborne concentrations of contaminants exceed the maximum use concentration (MUC) of the respirator. See fit testing section of these User Instructions .

If respirator becomes damaged or breathing becomes difficult, leave the contaminated area immediately and repair or replace the respirator. When used for non-particulates (eg. hazardous vapors or gases) a change out schedule regarding the contaminants of interest, for the cartridge, must be established.

Dispose of cartridge after initial use in accordance with applicable regulations.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

This respirator must be inspected before each use to ensure it is in good operating condition. Any damaged or defective parts must be replaced before use. Failure to do so may affect respirator performance and may result in sickness or death.

1.Check the faceseal for cracks, tears and dirt. Examine the inhalation valve for signs of distortion, cracking or tearing.

2.Check that the head straps are intact and have good elasticity.

3.Examine all plastic parts and gaskets for signs of cracking or fatiguing and replace if necessary.

4.Remove the exhalation valve cover by grasping the tab at the bottom of the exhalation valve cover and lifting. Examine the exhalation valve and seat for signs of dirt, distortion, cracks or tears. Do not use tissue paper or a paper towel to remove dirt or moisture from exhalation valve cover, exhalation valve or valve seat. Paper may leave behind particles, which may lodge in the valve seat and prevent proper operation (the valve will leak). A cheese cloth may be used for cleaning. Replace the valve if necessary. Secure the exhalation valve cover prior to use.

5.Examine the lenses for signs of cracking or other damage.

6.Check to see that the front and side voicemitters are functioning properly. If speech is fairly clear, they are functioning.

7.Check to see that the internal and external drinking tubes are functioning properly. This can be done by dipping the external drink tube quick disconnect into a cup of water and blowing. If no bubbles are seen, the drinking system is functioning properly. If bubbles are seen, repair or replace the facepiece.

10

Before you enter a contaminated atmosphere wearing this respirator, you must inspect the respirator, don the respirator according to the instructions provided with the components of the system you are using and complete a User Seal Check. Failure to do so may affect respirator performance and may result in sickness or death.

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

Must be followed each time respirator is worn.

Donning and User Seal Check (Figure 12)

fig. 12

1.Fully loosen all six head straps and invert the head harness over the front of the facepiece.

2.Place your chin in the chin cup of the facepiece and press the mask assembly snugly against your face.

3.Grasp the tab at the bottom of the head harness and pull the head harness over your head. Be sure that your ears are between the temple straps and the bottom straps.

4.While holding a hand firmly on the facepiece and keeping the headpad centered on the back of the head, use your other hand to tighten the bottom straps one at a time, insuring that the straps lay flat against your head.

5.Tighten the temple straps until they are snug. Insure that straps lay flat against the head.

6.Tighten the head straps until they are snug and eyes are looking through the top 1/3 of the eyepieces. Insure that straps lay flat against the head.

7.Perform a positive or negative pressure user seal check each time that the respirator is donned.

Note: The negative pressure seal check is recommended.

11

Positive and Negative Pressure User Seal Checks

Positive Pressure Seal Check (Figure 13)

fig. 13

Close off the exhalation valve by pushing firmly on the center of the exhalation valve cover with the heal of one hand. It may be difficult to close the exhalation valve completely, therefore you must blow out or exhale hard. If the facepiece bulges slightly and no air leaks between the face and facepiece are detected, a proper seal has been obtained. If air leakage is detected around the faceseal, reposition the respirator on the face and/or readjust the tension of the straps to eliminate leakage and perform another user seal check. If you cannot achieve a proper fit, do not enter the contaminated area. See your supervisor.

Negative Pressure Seal Check (Figure 14)

fig. 14

The negative pressure seal check is the recommended user seal check method for this respirator. With the palm of your hand, cover the inlet port on the outside of the cartridge. Inhale gently. If the facepiece collapses slightly, and no air leaks between the face and facepiece are detected, a proper fit has been obtained. If air leakage is detected, reposition the respirator on the face and/or readjust the tension of the straps to eliminate leakage and perform another user seal check. If you cannot achieve a proper fit, do not enter the contaminated area. See your supervisor.

Quantitative and Qualitative Fit Testing

The effectiveness of a respirator will be reduced if it is not fitted properly. Therefore, either quantitative or qualitative fit testing must be conducted prior to the respirator being issued and used.

Note: Fit testing is both a U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Canadian requirement.

12

Quantitative Fit Testing (QNFT) can be conducted with 42 CFR 84 P100 type filters. To conduct QNFT on the FR-M40 facepiece, screw a 701 Filter Adapter into the filter inhalation port in the facepiece. Next, attach a 601 Quantitative Fit Test Adapter along with a 3M 2000 Series P100 42 CFR 84 approved filter. If quantitative fit testing (QNFT) is utilized, a fit factor (FF) of at least 500 must be obtained. The respirator may be used up to an assigned protection factor (APF) of 50 times the allowable exposure limit.

Qualitative Fit Testing (QLFT) can be conducted with the cartridge in place. The 3M FT-10 (sweet) or FT-30 (bitter) Qualitative Fit Test Apparatus can be utilized to conduct the fit testing. If qualitative fit testing (QLFT) is utilized, a passing fit factor (FF) of at least 100 is assumed. The respirator may be used up to an assigned protection factor (APF) of 10 times the allowable exposure limit.

Doffing the Respirator (Figure 15)

fig. 15

Before removing the respirator, you must leave the contaminated area and be completely decontaminated by following applicable decontamination protocols. Alternatively, have an individual, who has not been contaminated, assist you with doffing.

Before storing the respirator, be sure that the respirator has been decontaminated per applicable decontamination protocols. If necessary, dispose of the equipment per applicable waste regulations.

1.Loosen the bottom straps of the facepiece.

2.If this respirator is assigned to an individual user, do not loosen the temple or head straps.

Note: This will allow for quicker donning in the future as the temple and head straps will already be adjusted for the individual user. Only the bottom straps will require major adjustment after the respirator is donned. Temple and head straps may require only minor readjustment.

3.Place one hand on the front voicemitter to hold the facepiece on the face. With the other hand grasp the head harness tab and pull the head harness over the front of the facepiece.

13

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING

2.Remove old exhalation valve by grasping the valve disk and pulling straight away from the facepiece. Discard exhalation valve.

3.To install the exhalation valve disk, center the stem of the new exhalation valve disk over the center hole in the exhalation valve body.

4.Press straight down on the exhalation valve disk until the shoulder of the stem slips through the hole in the exhalation valve body and is fully engaged.

5.Check that the exhalation valve disk lies flat and smooth and has continuous contact with the exhalation valve body seat.

6.Rotate the exhalation valve disk with your finger to make sure it is properly seated.

7.Reinstall the exhalation valve cover by gently pulling the cover over the flanges at the top of the exhalation valve housing, seating the cover in the grooves at the sides of the exhalation valve housing, and, finally, by pulling the tab on the cover and stretching it gently over the bottom of the valve housing–seating it completely.

8.Install the drink tube quick disconnect coupling securely in the retainer and fasten the external drink tube to the drink tube retainer at the bottom of the exhalation valve cover.

Do not use mask assembly if inhalation valve body, inhalation valve disk or exhalation valve disk are missing. The mask assembly will leak and may result in sickness or death.

fig. 32

Note: The internal drink tube may irritate the lips if it touches them while wearing the mask assembly. Slight pressure on the top of the exhalation valve body should enable the internal drink tube to be grasped by the user’s lips.

1.Have the user put on the mask assembly and check to see if the internal drink tube touches the lips.

2.If the internal drink tube touches the lips while wearing the mask assembly, adjust the length of the internal drink tube as follows:

a.Remove the internal drink tube from the mask assembly.

b.Cut internal drink tube behind first barb.

c.Install internal drink tube.

3.Repeat steps 1 and 2 as necessary to achieve proper fit.

CAUTION

Do not remove the last barb as this is needed for proper function.

1.Remove side voicemitter retainer by unscrewing counter clockwise using the D-ring side voicemitter removal tool, or a standard 1 3/16 x1 inch D-ring or similar tool.

2.Remove the side voicemitter from the mask by pressing from the inside of the mask assembly. Remove the gasket from the sideport housing on the mask exterior.

3.To install new side voicemitter kit, position the gasket in the side port.

4.When looking at the voicemitter, both sides will have small holes in the surface for sound transmission, however only one side will have four little beads poking through the sound transmission holes. Install the side voicemitter with the four beaded side facing out.

5.Position the side voicemitter retainer in the sideport.

6.Tighten the voicemitter retainer by turning clockwise with the D-ring side voicemitter removal tool, or a standard 1 3/16 x1 inch D-ring or similar tool. The voicemitter retainer should be tight enough so that it cannot be easily removed by hand.
