Clemco CPF 80 and CPF 20 filters are designed as sorbent beds and filters to fulfill applicable OSHA regulations. These filters do not assure breathing-air quality as outlined in OSHA regulations: 1910.134(i)(1)(ii) Compressed breathing air shall meet at least the requirements for Grade D breathing air described in ANSI/Compressed Gas Association Commodity Specification for Air, G-7.1-1989.
Employers and operators must read and understand the CPF 80/CPF 20 owner’s manual before use. This manual is available for access and downloading from the Clemco website: CPF 20/80 Particulate Air Filter.
The CPF housing is rated 150 psi. Operating above 150 psi could cause the housing to rupture and cause severe injury or death.
The CPF filter cartridge is specifically designed to comply with OSHA regulation 1910.134(i)(5)(iii). Use of non-Clemco replacement parts may violate this OSHA regulation.
The filter cartridge is designed for a life of approximately 500 hours or three months in a 40-hour workweek. Documented inspection and replacement of the cartridge is mandated by OSHA regulation 1910.134(i)(5)(iv).
These types of filters are not part of the NIOSH-approved supplied-air respirator system required for abrasive blasting. The NIOSH-approved components begin at the point of attachment where the air line connects to the air source after the air regulator.
