New masks filter oil, gas substances

The new P95 series of filtration face pieces from North Safety Products are ideal for use in environments with oil and gas substances, according to the company. The 8140P95 is a respirator designed for dusty applications that contain oily base particulates, while the 8145P95 is ideal for particulate protection when gas or vapour exists. North Safety says both products have a full flange seal cushion for better fit and protection, and features a curved nose clip for a snug fit around the nose area. The 8140P95 is particularly useful in tool rooms, machine shops, grinding applications, or when sweeping and sanding in hot environments. The 8145P95 model, on the other hand, provides organic vapour, acid gas and ozone protection below permissible exposure level, and includes a blue exhalation valve, which refers to hydrogen fluoride protection in a smelter, the company says.
