  1. Users must follow instructions each time respirator is worn.
  2. OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.134 (f) requires that the user be fit tested.
  3. Do not wear with any facial hair, such as beards, or any other facial features which may prevent a proper fit.
  4. If you cannot obtain a proper fit, do not enter the contaminated area and see your supervisor.

DONNING – PUTTING ONMOLDEX M9003L 9000 Series Face Respirator Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 4

  1. Grab lower lengths of head harness with each hand, just above each adjustment buckle, and while positioning chin in the flange, pull harness over the head. (Fig. 2)
  2. Push facepiece onto face and chin with one hand and position for most comfortable and secure seal while pulling and tightening neck tab of the harness with another hand. Repeat for another neck tab. For the easiest, most secure and best fit always adjust neck harness tabs first before tightening top harness tabs. (Fig. 3)
  3. All four harness tabs must be adjusted so that the pressure of the face seal on the face is distributed evenly. Head harness must lay flat on head. Adjust both lower and top harness tabs evenly for most comfortable and leak-tight fit of the face flange.

DOFFING – TAKING OFF

To take off, first pull lower/neck harness tabs away from the face to loosen harness straps, then pull chin area away and upwards from face. (Fig. 4)
FIT TESTS
A qualitative fit test for up to 10x PEL, or quantitative, for up to 50x PEL must be performed before a respirator is assigned. Refer to current OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 (f). Qualitative fit testing can be performed using the Moldex BITREX® fit test kit with appropriate cartridges or filters. Quantitative fit testing can be performed with probed cartridge kit. Call +1 (800) 421-0668 or +1 (310) 837-6500, ext. 512/550 for a copy of the selection guide or you may access it via the website at www.moldex.com.

USER SEAL CHECKMOLDEX M9003L 9000 Series Face Respirator Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 5

Perform both negative and positive seal checks each time you enter a contaminated area.
Negative Pressure Seal Check: Cover both cartridges without pressing too hard against face, then gently inhale and hold your breath. The facepiece should slightly collapse. If air leakage is detected, re-adjust the position of the facepiece and the tension of head harness and repeat the seal check until leakage is eliminated. (Fig. 5)
Positive Pressure Seal Check: Cover the exhalation valve vent without pressing too hard against face, then exhale gently to create a slight positive pressure. If air leakage is detected, re-adjust the position of the facepiece and the tension of head harness and repeat the seal check until leakage is eliminated. (Fig. 6)
WARNINGS: If you cannot obtain a proper fit, do not enter the contaminated area and see your supervisor.
Seal check your respirator each time you enter and periodically while wearing the respirator in the contaminated area. It is the responsibility of the Safety Director or your supervisor to assist you in determining how tight the 9000 Series respirator should be on the users face. Prior to and during use the user has the final responsibility to determine how tight the respirator should be and when it needs to be adjusted to always maintain a proper seal. Do not over or under tighten as either may cause leakage and reduce protection.

CHEMICAL CARTRIDGE SERVICE LIFE
Leave the contaminated area, and replace cartridges, if you smell, taste, or feel any irritation, in your nose or throat. Consult your supervisor. Replace according to your change-out schedule per OSHA 1910.134, or no more than eight hours after the first use, or sooner if a breakthrough occurs.
CARTRIDGE/FILTER DISK ASSEMBLY
First inspect the facepiece, cartridge or filter disk sealing surfaces to make sure it’s clean and undamaged. Check to see that the cartridge retainer gasket is in place and is clean and undamaged. (FIG. 7) DO NOT ATTACH A CARTRIDGE OR FILTER DISK WITHOUT A GASKET. SEE YOUR SUPERVISOR. Only use cartridges or filter disks from sealed bags. To attach the cartridge or filter disk to the facepiece, align the three cartridges or filter disk notches with the three bayonets protruding from the facepiece and firmly turn clockwise until the cartridge or filter disk is locked into position and is unable to turn any further. (Fig. 8) Check to see that it is seated and flush against the facepiece gasket. Then check the inhalation diaphragms for dirt and/or damage and see that they are seated properly.

CHANGE OUT SCHEDULES

OSHA 1910.134 (d) requires that the employer implement a change out the schedule for cartridges based on objective information or data that will ensure cartridges are changed before the end of their service life (see OSHA 1910.134 for complete text). A cartridge’s useful service life is how long it provides adequate protection from harmful chemicals in the air. The service life of a cartridge depends on many factors, including environmental conditions, breathing rate, cartridge filtering capacity and the number of contaminants in the air. If you know what the chemical is and how much of it you are exposed to, then you are ready to estimate how long your respirator cartridges will work and apply the safety factor. You must use some type of objective data to develop a change-out schedule. Options for determining a cartridge’s service life include:

  1. Conducting experimental tests.
  2. Using a mathematical model like the “Advisor Genius” or “Breakthrough Software.”

OSHA has on its website other means of calculating breakthrough times for various chemicals. You may also wish to consider use of this website in developing your change-out schedules. Be advised that actual service life can vary considerably from those calculated using these models. These models only provide rough estimates. Some of the data you will need specific to the Moldex cartridges in order to use the models on the OSHA website are:

  • #7100 has an absorbing equivalent of 42.5 grams of Organic Vapor Carbon, its height is 2.06 cm, inside diameter is 7.81 cm.
  • #7600 has an adsorbing equivalent of 36.0 grams of Organic Vapor Carbon, it’s height is 2.06 cm, and its inside diameter is 7.81 cm.
  • A change-out schedule worksheet is provided.

CARTRIDGE DETAILS

READ THIS WARNING
These weights were estimated by Miller-Nelson using methods based on their tests. It is suggested that you use default values provided by OSHA for the other cartridge specific parameters. Lastly, in order for the OSHA models to be used you may have to provide other pertinent data on the challenge agent which may be found on the MSDS or from the chemical manufacturer. These models can be found at www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/respiratory/advisor_genius_wood/advisor_genius.html. They are called “Advisor Genius” and “Breakthrough Applications.” Moldex suggests that you use the OSHA models, or other means provided by OSHA. Moldex always recommends that you utilize the most conservative (shortest) breakthrough times. For more detailed information on these methods, refer to OSHA’s website at: www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/respiratory/advisor_genius_wood/advisor_genius.html www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/respiratory/change_schedule.html

(Fig. 12) Check to see that filters are properly seated then push the retainer onto the cartridge until it snaps into place. Check the inhalation and exhalation diaphragms for dirt or damage and see that they are properly seated.
FILTER REPLACEMENT
To remove the old filter, gently pull off the filter retainer. Remove the old filter and place a new filter inside the retainer so that the side indicated is away from the face. Inspect the cartridge lid to be sure it is clean and undamaged. Replace the retainer.
Warning: Use the #7020 filter retainer with the #8910 or #8970 filters only. Failure to do so may result in sickness or death.

MAINTENANCE

FACEPIECE SERVICE LIFE
The effective life of the facepiece will be influenced by the use conditions and contaminants to which it is exposed. This includes a concentration of the contaminants (e.g. ketones and aromatic solvents will increase the rate of deterioration), duration of exposure, ambient temperature, etc. Do not use solvents to wipe or clean the facepiece as these will reduce the life of the respirator and pose a health hazard to the user. If the material shows any signs of cracking, wrinkling, or aging, then discard the facepiece immediately. Do not expose to high ambient temperatures (above 160° F) as this will distort the facepiece and may affect fit.
CLEANING FACEPIECE
Cleaning is recommended after each day’s use or more frequently if necessary. Remove all filters, cartridges, gaskets, inhalation & exhalation diaphragms, and head harness and nose cup from the facepiece. Wash the facepiece in warm soapy water, rinse with clean water, and air dry. DO NOT CLEAN WITH SOLVENTS OR EXPOSE TO HIGH TEMPERATURES. Inspect components and reassemble, or replace respirator if worn, damaged or deformed.
INHALATION & EXHALATION DIAPHRAGMS INSPECTION/CLEANING
Two inhale diaphragms are located inside the nose cup and two for each of the cartridge retainers. The exhale diaphragm is located under the valve cover. Open the valve cover by pulling on the latch then remove the diaphragm. Clean and check the diaphragms for dirt, leaks, distortion, or any other damage. After washing and/or inspection, replace all five diaphragms and check to see that they are properly seated.
Caution: Do not twist the exhale cover. Twisting may result in separation from the exhale assembly. Do not use this facepiece without the exhale cover in place.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
Use only Moldex replacement parts for Moldex respirators.

STORAGE

CAUTION: When not in use or during storage, do not expose the respirator to excessive heat (above 135˚ F/57˚ C) or hazardous substances. Such exposure, or storing in any other manner that may also distort the facepiece, may prevent a proper fit and expose you to the risk of sickness or death.

SUPPLEMENTAL HAZARD WARNINGS FOR MOLDEX® PARTICULATE RESPIRATORS

These are Warnings and Limitations that all users must be made aware of in addition to all warnings and other information on the outside of the Moldex respirator packaging or other published related information. You must read and comply with these Warnings and Limitations at all times and only when your employer has determined that it is appropriate to use this respirator. Proper use of this respirator may reduce but will not eliminate the risk of illness or death from exposure to some Chemical, Biological, Radiological, or Nuclear (CBRN) hazards. CBRN hazards include, but are not limited to, bacteria, toxins, and viruses that can cause death, serious bodily injury or disfigurement. The long-range and short-range risks of CBRN hazards and the amount and manner of exposure that may produce such risks remain to a great extent unknown. Use of this respirator must be in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Health Advisories or any other Local, State or Federal recommendations for use of respirators against specific CBRN hazards. This respirator should not be used for many CBRN hazards. There are more efficient models of respirators with a higher level of protection available from other manufacturers. It is up to the employer, and not Moldex, to determine if a respirator should be worn and if so, which type, size, level of protection, and model.
BACKGROUND
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a branch of the CDC and a U.S. Government agency, is responsible for testing and certifying respirators for protection against hazardous industrial contaminants. Procedures for selecting and using proper respiratory protection are regulated by various governmental agencies, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). NIOSH tests and certifies certain respirators for use against chemical warfare agents, biological warfare agents or biohazards and provides advisory information for some biohazards, but OSHA and other government agencies have not set any exposure standards for these agents or biohazards, in general. Moldex does not make recommendations for any type of respirator to be used against CBRN hazards for workers or the general public. You should know that there may be no obvious warnings of the presence or release of CBRN hazards.

WARNINGS FOR ALL USERS

  • This respirator must only be used for substances having Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) and only where deemed appropriate by your employer.
  • This respirator must be fit tested. If you cannot obtain a proper fit, do not use the respirator and do not enter the risk area.
  • This respirator is not for use with beards or other facial hair that prevents direct contact between the face and the sealing surface of the respirator.
  • Moldex respirators, when properly fitted and used as part of a comprehensive respiratory protection program, may reduce wearer exposure to some airborne hazards, but not all.
  • In the event of a sudden or unexpected CBRN hazard release, you may use this respirator for escape only if you have not been provided with a more appropriate respirator for this type of situation. Do not remove the mask from the face until you have left the contaminated area.
  • Do not reuse or store for reuse or hang around neck unless your employer specifically authorizes reuse. Dispose of the respirator as hazardous waste in accordance with your employer’s directions.
  • Use other personal protective equipment, as directed by your employer. Where appropriate use protective gloves when handling or removing the respirator and dis-pose of the respirator and then gloves in accordance with your employer’s directions.
  • If CDC or other Local, State or Federal agency issues new or revised guidelines for respirator use against specific hazards, users must strictly comply.

WARNINGS FOR USE OF PARTICULATE RESPIRATORS AGAINST TB
OSHA and CDC have recommended the use of any of the particulate respirators approved under 42CFR84 as a means of providing help in complying with a program designed to reduce occupational exposure to tuberculosis. The level of effectiveness of respiratory protection from tuberculosis cannot be determined with currently available data. However, proper use of appropriate Moldex respirators in conjunction with a comprehensive respiratory protection program may reduce, but will not eliminate, risk of infection.

  • Be sure to read the Limitations outlined below and strictly follow all Warnings set forth under the WARNINGS FOR ALL USERS.
  • When using any Moldex respirator, filter replacement and/or disposal must be handled in accordance with your Healthcare Facility’s comprehensive respiratory protection program.
  • If disinfectants are used to sanitize reusable facepieces, you must consult with your Healthcare Facility and run tests to ensure the compatibility of any disinfectant with Moldex reusable facepiece materials. Use of disinfectants could impair the efficiency of the respirator and result in a loss of protection.

LIMITATIONS

  • Respirators may reduce but do not eliminate wearer exposure to airborne hazards or the risk of contracting any disease or infection. Only use this respirator as part of a comprehensive respiratory protection program. You will receive no respiratory protection if this respirator is not properly fitted and worn. Additionally, potentially hazardous particles, including infectious agents, smaller than the particle sizes used in NIOSH certifications are likely to exist in certain environments. Some published data indicates that these smaller particles may not be filtered out as effectively as the particle sizes used by NIOSH [N Series Count Median Diameter (CMD) 0.075 ± .02µm Geometric Standard Deviation 1.86 (GSD), and R & P Series CMD 0.185 ± .02µm 1.6 (GSD)] when certifying respirators. It is imperative that you determine the size and potential hazards of the particles that may be present in the environment before selecting appropriate respiratory protection, and that you refer to CDC guidelines when selecting and using any respiratory, particularly in environments where smaller types of particles, such as those referenced above, may be present.
  • If the respirator comes in contact with blood or fluids, including body fluids, leave the contaminated area as soon as possible and discard and replace the respirator.
  • Moldex respirators must not be used on children.
