3M™ Powered and Supplied Air Respirator Care and Maintenance
3M Powered & Supplied Air (P&SA) Respirators require regular checks and maintenance to ensure optimum performance and protection for the wearer.
In addition to potentially reducing protection levels, poor maintenance can also reduce the effective lifetime of a system, resulting in the additional cost of replacement. Guidance on the appropriate checks is provided in the instruction booklets with each new system/turbo/headtop.
The Care and Maintenance Pack sheets and posters make this information accessible on a day-to-day basis and are a strong visual reminder.
Care and Maintenance Posters
These A3 posters highlight the main 'Before Use', 'After Use' and 'Monthly' checks for each P&SA modular component or system. They also provide a breakdown of the various Consumables, Accessories and Repair Parts with Part Numbers and pack quantities. All posters are available to download below.
Additional Record Card
As part of the COSHH regulations, record cards must be used to record monthly checks on equipment. Download and print additional record cards for use with your Care & Maintenance Pack.
