3M is seeing an increased demand for respiratory protection products following the outbreak of a newly identified coronavirus (2019 novel Coronavirus, 2019-nCoV). In response, 3M is increasing respirator production to help meet demand, and working with distributors to help ensure they have inventory to meet end-user demand. 3M is committed to supporting the public health and governmental response to the Coronavirus while maintaining supply to existing customers.
The 3M™ Hydrogen Fluoride Cartridge/Filter 7093C is NIOSH approved and provides protection against hydrogen fluoride and oil/non-oil based particles. It provides Nuisance Level Organic vapour (OV) and Acid Gas (AG) Relief* when used with 3M™ Half and Full Facepiece Respirators 6000, 7000 and FF-400 Series with bayonet filter holders.
When properly fitted, the 3M™ Hydrogen Fluoride Cartridge/Filter 7093C/37173 can be used in a variety of applications including welding, brazing torch cutting, metal pouring, soldering and exposure to lead, asbestos, cadmium, arsenic, MDA and HF for concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) with half facepieces or 50 times PEL with full facepieces. This filter also provides nuisance level* protection against OV and AG exposures. Full facepieces must be quantitatively fit tested to claim assigned protection factor above 10 in negative pressure mode. Do not use in environments that are Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH). NIOSH approved for hydrogen fluoride and certain oil and non-oil based particles. 3M recommended for relief against nuisance levels* of organic vapour/acid gases. Commonly used in the Abatement market, the filter is encapsulated in a hard shell to help protect it from the decontaminating water spray showers.
