Respiratory Masks

Dromex Respiratory Masks – Lung Protection in High Risk Environment

KTF Africa supplies high quality respiratory masks for industrial use, construction and high risk environments. Breathing in fumes, fine dust, vapours and gases has long term effects on the users lung health and quality of life.

Respiratory masks are classified according to the environment they are being used for, and can be re-usable or disposable.

When choosing a respirator mask check:

  • It should fit snugly, covering mouth and nose but leaving eye sight clear
  • The mask needs to fit the job.

Lung Hazards Categories

These are particles that vary in size resulting from the
breaking up of solids. The smaller the particle the greater
the hazard that it presents. Fibres from materials should
also be treated as dust particles.

Gaseous state of substances that are liquids or solids at
room temperature (vapour). A gaseous state is formed
by evaporation from substances that are normally either
solid or liquid at room temperature.

These are clouds of fine droplets or particles formed by
spraying, which can be water or oil based. Mists are often
combinations of several hazardous ingredients formed
by processes that involve atomisation and consist of tiny
liquid droplets.

Are organic or inorganic compounds that become
airborne and are able to diffuse or spread freely. Gases
can travel very far very quickly.

These are solid aerosols that are formed when metallic
vapours condense on cooling and may be produced by
welding, galvanising or similar processes involving hot
metal.

When an atmosphere is likely to contain less than 19%
oxygen, or where conditions may exist in the future to
cause this to happen, the area is considered oxygen
deficient and a hazard.

SITE OF DEPOSITION PARTICLE HOW THE BODY DEALS WITH THE PARTICLES
UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT Nasal passage & Pharynx 5-30ppm Filtered by nasal hair and sneezing
MIDDLE RESPIRATORY TRACT Trachea & Bronchi 1-30ppm Mucocillary esculator activity
LOWER RESPIRATORY TRACT Alveoli <1ppm Dissolution, or uptake by the vascular system with subsequent engulfment by macrophages that move the material to the terminal bronchi to be cleared by the mucocillary esculator

QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE SELECTING RESPIRATORY MASK:

What is the oxygen content?
Are there asphyxiants present?
Is the atmosphere immediately dangerous to life or health?
Is the atmosphere corrosive or likely to become so?
Is the atmosphere explosive or likely to become so?
Is there a potential of permeation of air contaminants?
What is the contaminant?
Are there climatic extremes?

The following additional information is provided to help you make decisions on Respiratory Masks:

• Change filters as instructed by the manufacturer, e.g. ‘single use only’
• Change before any expiry date marked on the filter
• Do not use if the expiry date on the filters has passed
• Change when damaged or visibly contaminated
• Change before the contaminant can be smelled or tasted
• Change before the filter life indicated in your risk assessment
• For replaceable filters, it would be good practice to mark the filter visibly with the date it was taken out
of the packaging and fitted to the RPE; an in-house replacement date can be added to this marking
