AIR QUALITY AND VOLUME
3B
The responsibility of maintaining the quality of the air supply is yours. The air breathed by the person
wearing a Supplied Air Hood Respirator must be of a proper quality and quantity (sufficient volume or
flow rate) to satisfy all the respiratory needs of the wearer and to prevent any contaminated air from
entering under the face seal.
Government standards require that the air supplied to the respirator contain at least 19.5% oxygen by
volume. Unless safety and health codes in your area specify otherwise, the quality of the air must meet
the applicable minimum grade requirements for Type 1 gaseous air set forth in the Compressed Gas
Association Commodity Specification for Air, CGA G7.1 (Grade D or higher quality).
The air taken into a compressor for ultimate use in a Supplied-Air Hood Respirator must meet this
standard before and after compression. Use of low pressure, oil-less ambient air pumps must be located
in a contaminant-free area in order to deliver air to the respirator.
INLET AIR PRESSURE
To assure the volume of breathing air entering into the Supplied Air Respirator is within the prescribed
limits, it is necessary to consider the air pressure at the POA (Point of Attachment) and the length of the
supplied air hose. (see “Special User Instructions”)
Warning
ALLEGRO INDUSTRIES air hose is approved for use with this Supplied-Air Hood Respirator. Using
any other hose will automatically void the approval of the respirator and may be hazardous to the
wearer.
PUTTING ON (DONNING) THE RESPIRATOR
When properly worn, this Supplied Air Hood Respirator is attached to the wearer at two points. One is
around the waist by a belt which is attached to a breathing tube; the other is by the headband assembly
inside the hood assembly.
The assembled respirator should be put on in uncontaminated air, as follows:
1. Remove the headband assembly from the hood and adjust the headband to assure a snug but
comfortable fit.
2. Reinstall the headband assembly into the hood by lining up the Velcro® tabs.
3. Remove the protective tissue from the front of the hood’s lens.
4. Attach a removable lens cover (if required) to the outside of the lens to protect it from overspray.
5. Check to make sure that the breathing tube is not kinked or crushed and that it is fully inserted
into the collar of the hood assembly.
6. Secure the waist belt around your waist. Don the hood and headband assembly. Connect the
approved air supplied hose to the male connector plug on the end of the breathing tube.
7. Once connected to the air hose, turn on the air supply, check air flow, and enter the work area.
HOOD REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR P/N’S 9910 & 9910R
1. Exit from the hazardous environment and remove the supplied air hood.
2. Turn off the air supply and disconnect the breathing tube from the air line hose at the waist.
3. Unbuckle and remove the waist belt.
4. Remove the plastic hose clamp from the hood and breathing tube.
5. Remove the breathing tube from the hood. Dispose of the hood.
6. Install the breathing tube into the replacement hood. Be sure to insert the breathing tube
fully into the collar of the hood. (See drawing “Underside View”)
Underside View for 9910 & 9910R
7. Install the white clamp over both the hood and breathing tube. Squeeze the clamp until
the clamp teeth engage. Be sure that the clamp is snug so the breathing tube does not
disengage.
WARNING!
Do not kink or crush the breathing tube. This could restrict airflow and allow the user to be
exposed to contaminants.
8. Return to instructions for putting on (donning) the respirator.
HOOD REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
P/N’s 9910D & 9910DS
1. Exit from the hazardous environment and remove the supplied air hood.

MAINTENANCE, CLEANING, AND STORAGE
Before each use, a respirator must be carefully inspected to assure that it is complete and in good
operating condition. A respirator that is not complete must not be used until such time as it is completely
repaired. Only approved parts should be used as replacements and to make repairs. Using other parts
will void the NIOSH approval for the respirator and may result in bodily injury or death.
The hood and its components used by an individual should be inspected and, if possible, cleaned and
sanitized after each day of use.
The 9910D and 9910DS series hoods are intended to be a disposable type hood. If the hood is damaged,
torn or contaminated in any way that would affect its performance or cause any possible hazard to the
user it should be disposed of properly.
INSPECTION
Inspect the hood for damage such as tears or rips.
Inspect the lens for scratches, cracks, creases, dents or any other type of damage. Inspect all sewn
seams.
Inspect the breathing tube for signs for cracks, holes, kinks, or other damage, as well as flaking or
deterioration of the foam baffle inside the breathing tube.
Inspect the fittings for proper attachment.
Inspect belt for unusual wear such as cuts, tears, fraying, or damaged hooks or buckles.
WARNING!
Inspect the hood assembly before each use.
CLEANING
Replace lens cover when it becomes difficult to see through the lens. Replace hood when contaminant
penetration occurs, or when soiled or damaged. Clean the breathing tubes of the 9910 and 9910R outer
surface with mild soap and warm water. Rinse with clean water. Shake to remove excess water and let
air dry.
WARNING!
Do not allow the foam baffle inside the breathing tube to get wet. Do not use solvents to
clean any part of the hood.
WARNING!
DO NOT damage the lens with abrasive cleaners or pads.
REPAIR
Replacements are limited by the user to those components listed on the NIOSH label in this manual.
STORAGE
Store the Supplied Air Hood away from dust, sunlight, temperature extremes, moisture, and chemicals.
Before storing these hood assemblies, they should be inspected, repaired if necessary, cleaned, dried,
and given a final inspection. Only fully operable hood assemblies should be stored.
While in storage, the hood assemblies should be protected from distortion from the weight or pressure of
surrounding objects or being placed in too small a place.
