Cleaning, Inspection and Storage
  1. The following cleaning instructions are made using OSHA and CSA guidelines
  2. Cleaning is recommended after each use. In Healthcare settings, disinfection frequency will be based on the facility infection control policy but should also reference guidance from OSHA that states "...respirators must be cleaned as often as necessary to prevent them from becoming unsanitary. In addition, respirators worn by more than one user must be cleaned and disinfected before being worn by a different user."
  3. Nitrile or vinyl gloves should be worn during cleaning as well as other personal protective equipment (PPE) as indicated.
  4. Disassemble the respirator by removing the filter, shell and straps. Discard the filter.
  5. Inspect all the components per the inspection instruction to identify any damage or overuse. As per OSHA regulations, inspection shall include the following:
    • Conditions of component parts (i.e., shell, seal and disposable filter)
    • Tightness of connectors
    • End-of-service-life indicator
    • Shelf-life
    • Proper functioning of regulators, alarms and warning systems
  6. Manual cleaning: Wash with warm water not exceeding 43C (110F), using soft brush to thoroughly clean all surfaces. Use mild detergents as cleansers. Solvents/strong detergents are not recommended as they may cause deterioration of the respirator components. Rinse thoroughly with warm water until residual cleansers are washed off.
  7. Disinfection: when the cleaner used does not contain a disinfecting agent, respirator components should be immersed for two minutes in one of the following (Per OSHA's guidelines):
    • Hypochlorite solution(50ppm of chlorine) made by adding approximately one milliliter of laundry bleach to one liter of water at 43C(110F)
    • Aqueous solution of iodine(50ppm iodine) made by adding approximately 0.8milliliters of tincture of iodine(6-8grams ammonium and/or potassium iodide/100cc of 45% alcohol)to one liter of water at 43C(110F)
  8. Rinse components thoroughly in clean, warm and preferably running water until all residual disinfectants are washed off. [NOTE:Residual disinfectants may cause deterioration of the respirator components. Through rinsing is important.]
  9. Hand dry components with a clean, lint-free cloth or air dry.
  10. Reassemble respirator following the assembly instructions.
  11. Test respirator before use to ensure all components work properly.
  12. This product can be used for the maximum of 200 cleaning cycles.
