Carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons (oil) or other chemical vapors, and toxic gases can all be extremely hazardous to your health. These toxic contaminants may be present in the atmosphere while performing such tasks as spray painting, sandblasting, tank cleaning, or repairing gas pipelines. Normally any compressed air will contain liquid water and oil, gaseous hydrocarbons, dirt, rust, scale, and may contain other potentially hazardous contaminants, thus making the compressed air unsuitable for breathing.
Now you can provide the highest level of respiratory protection while using air from your existing compressed air supply. The La-Man Air Breathing System removes the undesirable contaminants from the compressed air and efficiently reduces the level of hydrocarbon (oil) vapors, tastes, and odors well below the OSHA limits for breathable air. Each unit comes equipped with a CO monitor, which alarms both visible and audibly when the contaminant concentration exceeds allowable limits, ensuring continuous safety. Choose from the optional NIOSH approved Supplied-Air Masks, Supplied-Air Hoods, and Hoses to make your breathable air system complete.
WARNING! The LA-MAN Air Breathing System does not remove carbon monoxide. Nor will it affect the concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide contained in the compressed air. However, most ambient air (and therefore compressed air) falls well within the Grade D requirements for these gases. Do not attempt to use the LA-MAN Air Breathing System if the concentration of any of these gases is outside of the OSHA allowable limits.
