Customer Q & A

Q1: I have the 3M 6006 multi gas vapor mask. I have it all assembled. I have 2 questions. How can I test the mask to make sure it is functioning? When I cover the cartridges...the mask does not pull against my face my second question is: where is the end of use indicator located on the cartridge? Please respond! Thank you.

A: The easiest fit test is to cover the filters with your hands and inhale. Don't inhale extremely hard as this can possible disrupt the function of the exhale valve and cause air to enter through it. That exhale valve is a thin rubber flap so if you inhale hard enough to pull it into the interior of the mask, it won't work properly until you readjust it. If air is not entering in there, then it's likely simply fit, which with this mask means tightening the straps. The mask doesn't have to pull in against your face, but you shouldn't be able to draw air in with you have the filters completely covered with your hands. An easier way to test fit since the filters have a larger surface area, remove the filters and cover the openings in the mask where the filter attach with your hands. Lastly, there is no indicator. These cartridges do have a small white area on one of the short edges. You can date them with a pen or sharpie. After 50-60 hours of use, three months or use, or if you notice "breakthrough", replace them. Breakthrough is when you'll start to notice odors passing through the mask. At this point, the cartridges have adsorbed all that they can and are allowing smoke/odors/chemical vapors to pass through. Hope that helps!
