All respirators should be approved with a Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and health (NIOSH). Different kinds of respirators were approved for specific exposure level. Be sure air purifying respirators are equipped with high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) or combination filters which include hepa filters. These filters are 99.97% efficient in trapping particles larger than three-tenths of a micron. When you get your respirator make sure it fix properly against your face. Comfort is just as important as a good seal, cover the exhaust and try to exhale gently again proper seal prevented the air leaving the respirator when the exhaust is covered. Change your respirator filters whenever you noticed an increase in breathing resistant.
