3M engineers say the TR-600 respirator is intended for those who work in environments with dirty air. The active air filter is the result of comprehensive research to gain an in-depth understanding the needs of those who work in less than clean air. Designed to endure heavy use and long wear, the respirator can help enhance comfort, endurance and ease of use. Company engineers say represents an evolution of technology.
The lightweight respirator is engineered to increase comfort, even for long shifts. For instance, the ergonomic design fits close to the body, allowing for greater movement in tight work spaces. It offers multiple airflow rate options for user comfort, and wide and contoured belts along with flexible air channels to minimize heat buildup.
The TR-600 has two powerful lithium-ion battery options that reduce downtime by performing up to eight hours. Audible, visual, and vibratory alarms reflect filter and battery status to keep workers informed and to help avoid low-airflow situations and automatic low-power shutdowns.
“The user-friendly design features intuitive, interactive touch points, and provides tool-free maintenance,” said Chris Sneden, marketing manager, 3M Personal Safety Division. “It also meets IP67 standards with cleaning and storage plugs to enable full submersion, for easy cleanup and decontamination.”
The respirator can be used in a wide variety of applications, such as demolition, grinding, metal finishing, and casting, leveraging an extensive range of NIOSH-approved filters and cartridges. It also is compatible with a variety of headgear, offering integrated protection for eye, head, face, skin and respiratory protection.
3M offers a portfolio of Personal Protective Equipment for respiratory protection, hearing protection, fall protection, reflective materials for high-visibility apparel, protective clothing, protective eyewear, head and face protection, welding helmets, and other adjacent products and solutions, such as tactical safety equipment, detection, monitoring equipment, active communications equipment and compliance management.
