3M 9923V intrinsically safe respirator

Wednesday, 26 June, 2013 | Supplied by: 3M Safety & Graphics


The 3M 9923V - a disposable specialty respirator with P2-rated filtration - provides protection from hazards such as coal dust, diesel particulate matter, other dusts, mists and fumes. The added carbon layer effectively reduces exposure to odours and unburned fuel and organic vapours such as those from heavy machinery equipped with diesel engines.

With worker safety in mind, the specialty respirator has been designed with a non-aluminium nose-clip, allowing use in underground coalmines and other intrinsically safe environments.

The 9923V features 3M’s Cool Flow Valve that helps release hot humid exhaled breath as well as assists with minimising unpleasant build-up of heat inside the respirator. This provides a cooler, drier wear making it suitable for long periods of wear or during physically demanding tasks.

In addition to use in underground coalmines and other intrinsically safe environments, the respirator is also suitable for use in metalliferous mining, welding, work sites using machinery powered with diesel fuel and for workers exposed to lead fumes.

The respirator meets performance requirements of AS/NZS 1716:2012 and provides a protection factor of 10 times the applied exposure standard.
