A filtering facepiece (FFP3) device is a mask that provides a high level of filtering capability and face fit, and generates an effective barrier to both droplets and fine aerosols.
Filtering facepiece respirators focus on comfort and easy handling
: Half mask respirator; full facepiece respirator; filtering facepiece air-purifying respirator (APR); powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR).
Without any operating dust collection equipment, workers in the Concentrator area must be provided with Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPRs), or supplied-air respirators in continuous flow mode, to protect them against inhalation exposures to silica dust, instead of the paper filtering facepieces currently in use.
It is a well documented fact that, especially during prolonged use, many filtering facepiece respirators can become uncomfortable to wear, often due to a build up of warm moist exhaled air within the mask.
Laboratory performance evaluation of N95 filtering facepiece respirators, 1996.
To combat this, Draeger Safety have introduced the Piccola Filtering Facepiece, which combines high filter efficiency with low breathing resistance.
