P-series filters should be used and reused subject only to considerations of hygiene, damage, and increased breathing resistance if oil aerosols are not present. In contrast to the high-efficiency filters, the aerosol penetration performance of low-efficiency filters and face masks deteriorated when the charge potential on the filter was removed. How to cite this comment: Use and reuse of the P-series filters would be subject only to considerations of hygiene, damage, and increased breathing resistance. R- or P-series filters should be selected if there are oil e.

Aerosol penetration through filtering facepieces and respirator cartridges.
Between-respirator and within-respirator comparisons of penetration values were performed. People also read Article. Filtering facepieces disposable respirators and cartridges of the dust-mist, dust-mist-fume, and high-efficiency particulate air type were tested. The results suggest that inert NaCl aerosols may generally be appropriate for modeling filter penetration of similarly sized virions. Differing provisions from the publisher's actual policy or licence agreement may be applicable. The aerosol concentrations inside and outside the respirator were measured by an aerodynamic particle sizer and a laser aerosol spectrometer over a particle size range of 0. The filtration performance of the N95 respirator approached that of the two models of N99 over the range of particle sizes tested approximately 0.

Although carefully collected, accuracy cannot be guaranteed. In general, cartridges have a larger surface area than filtering facepieces but not necessarily lower filter penetration or higher filter quality. Yinge Qian et al.
