A small note about respirators. Once the cartridges
are exposed to air they start to lose effectiveness.
We use to change our cartridges daily. If you are not
changing your cartridges daily. Place your respirator
in a zip lock bag, squeeze out the air and it will
extend the cartridge life.
When you buy your respirator a safety supply store can
fit the respirators to your face size and test the
fit. Just because you are a large person does not mean
that you take a large respirator maybe you have small
facial features. It is best to have the respirator
fit, better places do it for free.
