3M 6001i Organic Vapor Service Life Indicator Cartridge - 2 Each
- Product Description
New 3M™ 6001i Organic Vapor Cartridge with Service Life Indicator technology
to help increase confidence in protection.
Introducing 3M™ Organic Vapor Service Life Indicator Cartridges 6000i Series. These innovative cartridges have a unique to 3M end-of-service-life indicator (ESLI) to help users determine when to change their cartridges in appropriate environments.*
Nanotechnology. Applied to taking the guesswork out of cartridge change.
How the 3M Service Life Indicator works
3MTM Organic Vapor Cartridges 6001i and 60921i contain the 3M Service Life Indicator, a visual ESLI for certain organic vapors and exposure levels. The ESLI is located inside the cartridge, next to the activated carbon. As organic vapors travel through the cartridge, they are also adsorbed into the ESLI. The clear cartridge wall allows you to monitor the developing indicator bar. When the cartridge is exposed to specific vapor concentrations, you will notice a change in the indicator.
When used properly in appropriate environments, an indicator bar will develop to help determine the remaining cartridge service life.
Using the indicator
The 3M Service Life Indicator can be used to complement your current cartridge change schedule.
You must change your cartridge at the normally scheduled interval or when the ESLI indicates, whichever occurs first. In some cases you can use the ESLI as a primary method to determine cartridge change, replacing your current change schedule method. To find out if the 3M Service Life Indicator may be used as the primary method for determining your cartridge change-out schedule:
1) Perform exposure monitoring to quantify the organic vapor exposure levels in your workplace. Visit 3M.com/PPESafety for information on 3M™ Organic Vapor Monitors.
2) Enter the monitoring results in the 3M™ Select and Service Life Software (3M.com/ServiceLifeSoftware). If the ESLI is not applicable as a primary method, it may still be used to complement your current cartridge change schedule.
Use with 3M™ respirators 5000, 6000, 7000 and FF-400 Series, according to NIOSH approvals. Designed to protect against a variety of gases, vapors and particulate hazards. When properly selected, cartridges and filters help provide protection from a variety of contaminants. *Nuisance level organic vapors refers to concentrations not exceeding OSHA PEL or applicable government occupational exposure limits, whichever is lower. Do not use for respiratory protection against organic vapors. **Nuisance level acid gases refers to concentrations not exceeding OSHA PEL or applicable government occupational exposure limits, whichever is lower. Do not use for respiratory protection against acid gases. ***3M™ recommended for ozone protection up to 10x OSHA PEL or applicable government occupational exposure limits, whichever is lower. (Not NIOSH certified for use against ozone). Only 3M™ filters 2000 Series, 7093, 5N11 or 5P71 are approved for use with 3M™ 5000 Series Respirators. Cartridges cannot be replaced.
