According to OSHA 1910.134, if hazards are present in the working environment with concentrations above the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL), and the hazard cannot be eliminated or reduced with engineering or administrative controls, then, according to the standard, a written respiratory protection program should be established. As part of that program, a respirator should be selected and used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Clean Air Boxes/Panels
Bullard Clean Air Boxes (CAB) offer superior breathing air filtration in a durable easy to use format. OSHA requires that employers provide their workers wearing airline respirators with Grade D breathing air. Bullard Clean Air Boxes provide 3-stage filtration and carbon monoxide (CO) monitoring to help meet this requirement.
This compact, durable unit connects easily to any compressed breathing air source (connection kit included). The monitor is factory set to sound a 93 dB alarm when CO level exceeds 10 ppm, the OSHA limit. Monitors are also available with a CO alarm set point of 5 ppm to meet CSA and certain international requirements. External operation lights show green for normal and red for alarm for easy visual monitoring. An alarm jack to allow connection to remote alarm devices is standard.
When placed in a clean air environment, Bullard Free-Air® pumps offer a low-cost means of supplying clean, breathable air to respirator wearers working in contaminated environments up to 300 feet away from the pump. They are easy to operate and maintain. Free-Air pumps do not require temperature alarms, CO monitors or airline filters, so they can be a cost-effective alternative to compressed air.
