CLEANSPACE POWERED RESPIRATOR:
Operating the Respirator
OPERATING
IMPORTANT: Before use ALWAYS CHECK THE RESPIRATOR is complete (with a filter), undamaged
and fully charged. Don the respirator before entering the contaminated area.
Press the “On” button on the power unit.
Note: the motor will not trigger until it detects breathing.
Note: There is no “Off” button, the unit will go to standby mode in approximately 5-10
seconds when no breath is detected.
IMPORTANT: Always doff AFTER leaving the contaminated area
The Alarms
The CleanSpace Respirator has alarms to alert the wearer for low battery charge and end-of-life filter
(particulate ONLY). CHECK the respirator before use:
 If less than 2 GREEN battery lights ON - charge the unit.
 If the RED Filter light is ON - change the filter.
1. LOW BATTERY CHARGE
2. END-OF-LIFE FILTER
Hear 3 beeps repeated every second. A single
battery (GREEN) lights will be flashing.
Hear 2 beeps repeated every second with the
filter (RED) light illuminated.
YOUR ACTION: There is 5 minutes to leave the
contaminated area and RECHARGE the battery.
YOUR ACTION: Leave the contaminated area
and CHANGE the filter
IMPORANT: When using the combination filters for gas or vapour hazards always consult your safety
manager or respiratory specialist to confirm the required frequency of gas filter replacement.

STEPS FOR RECALIBRATING THE RESPIRATOR
To perform a recalibration on your CLenSpace2® respirator follow these steps:
1. Place a finger over the Power Button and Airflow Button at the same time.
2. Press and hold the Buttons at the SAME TIME.
3. The buttons should be held until both the Blue and Red lights come on (approximately 1-3
seconds)., after which the Buttons should be released
The lights will stay on for 10 seconds while the respirator recalibrates itself. The recalibration is
completed when the blue and red lights switch off.
CLEANSPACE POWER UNITS: AIR FLOW RATE TEST
INSTRUCTIONS
PRODUCT CODE: PAF-0034, PAF-0060 and PAF-0070
PRODUCT NAME: CleanSpace™ PAPR Power Units
STEPS TO CONDUCT AN AIR FLOW RATE TEST
This test checks that the power unit air flow and can deliver the Manufacturer’s Minimum Design Flow of 120
litres/minute. Follow the steps below to conduct the air flow test.
1.
Fit the yellow Flow Test Cap to the left bellow. See Figure 1.
To avoid unnecessary filter changes, it is
important to fit the Flow Test Cap to the LEFT
bellow.
No air flows out of the right bellow. Fitting the
Flow Test Cap to the right bellow will result a
FAIL result, even if the filter is clean and
battery fully charged.
Figure 1 - Flow Test (Note – respirator shown here with Filter Adaptor fitted, but test is the same regardless of
respirator configuration)
2.
Make sure nothing is blocking the Flow Test Cap or the filter inlet. Place CleanSpace Ultra flat on a table or other
support.
3.
Press and release the button marked “Flow Test”
4.
CleanSpace Ultra automatically runs the Flow Test. The motor will run fast and air will be discharged from the
Flow Test Cap.
5.
After 2 seconds CleanSpace Ultra reports the result of the test using the LEDs on the keypad. Use the table below
to interpret the LEDs.
LIGHTS
DEFINITION
3 LEDs:
PASS (Excellent: flow >180 l/min)
2 LEDs:
PASS (Good)
1 LED:
PASS (Acceptable)
ALL LEDs FLASH
FAIL (Flow <120 l/min)
Do NOT use CleanSpace PAPR. REPLACE THE FILTER and ensure the BATTERY IS FULLY
CHARGED. Before use repeat the airflow test for a PASS result. Reset the respirator by
pressing the Power button. Repeat the flow test. If filter is new and battery fully charged
AND CleanSpace PAPR™ fails the test, contact PAFtec Australia and do not use.

RESPIRATOR BATTERY INFORMATION
BATTERY CHARGE INDICATOR
ALL CleanSpace Respirators are
equipped with an indicator of battery charge.
There are three (3) battery indicator lights. Three green lights are lit up when the battery is
fully charged and has minimum four (4) hours of operating time. The Respirator should be
fully charged before use.
CleanSpace Respirators will function with one (1) or two (2) green battery lights illuminated. If two (2) battery
indicator lights are on, the Respirator has between 25% and 75% charge and will typically operate for between 1
and 3 hours. If only one (1) battery indicator light is on, the battery has less than 20% charge and we recommend
that you charge the Respirator before use. When the battery approaches a level at which it would not be able to
supply the Manufacturer’s Minimum Design Flow, an alarm sounds (3 beeps, repeated once per second). All green
battery lights are extinguished. If the low battery alarm sounds you must leave the contaminated area immediately
and recharge the battery.
Operating time is strongly affected by work rate, altitude, and other factors. The operating times quoted above
are average durations at moderate work rates at sea level. Actual operating times may vary widely from average
durations.
LOW BATTERY ALARM
All CleanSpace™ respirators have a battery indicator light and low battery alarm. The battery alarm is triggered when
the battery has approximately 5 minutes life remaining. If the battery alarm sounds (one beep), leave the
contaminated area immediately, re-charge the battery or attach a charged CleanSpace2™ Endurance Pack.
CHARGING THE INTERNAL BATTERY
CleanSpace respirators have internal charging circuits that require a suitable DC source to charge. The charging is
automatic and requires no user intervention. Use only the PAFtec specified power source to charge.
ONLY
™
™
CleanSpace chargers should always be used to charge the CleanSpace batteries or you will invalidate your
warranty.
STEP 1. Turn the Respirator upside down, and locate the charging
port.
STEP 2. Lift off the flexible polymer charging port cover. Slide the
charger cable connector into the charging port.
STEP 3. Ensure the charger is plugged into a power socket.
STEP 4. Charging is complete when the Power Unit shows three
(3) green solid lights. A fully charged internal battery typically gives
you 6 hours of operating time.
STEP 5. When the Respirator is fully charged, disconnect the
charger cable from the Power Unit charging port. IMPORTANT
Replace the charging port cover to prevent dirt and contaminants
getting into the port.

RESPIRATOR BATTERY INFORMATION
NOTES ON CHARGING:

DO NOT CHARGE THE POWER UNIT WHEN THE UNIT IS BEING WORN.

Your CleanSpace™ charger comes with a lead with two connectors. This is so you can charge two
CleanSpace™ Power Units at the same time.

The CleanSpace2™ Power Unit cannot be charged at temperatures below 0°C.
GENERAL BATTERY INFORMATION
The CleanSpace™ Respirator has an internal 13.5V lithium ion (Li-ion) polymer battery. Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries
have the highest energy density of all battery types, and are widely used today in portable electronic devices across
many different industries. The commonly available Li-ion polymer batteries are similar to Li-ion batteries, except
they are packaged in a soft polymer film as opposed to the metal case commonly used for Li-ion cells. The soft
packaging allows the cells to expand slightly under extreme heat, making them safer. The optimal performance for
an internal lithium ion polymer battery lasts for 3 to 5 years. After 3-5 years, the battery's operating time will
reduce and will require to be charged more often.
RESPIRATOR STORAGE AND CARE
To maintain the integrity of the internal battery, the Respirator should be stored under the following conditions
when not being used:
Long term storage (> 3 months)
18°C to 28°C @ 45-85% RH
Medium term storage (< 90 days)
-10°C to 35°C
Short term storage (< 30 days)
-10°C to 45°C
For added safety, all CleanSpace™ internal batteries have a built-in Protection Circuit Module (PCM) to ensure the
batteries are protected against over-charge and over-discharge.
Like all batteries, care must be taken to ensure best performance, battery life, reliability and safety. The following
precautions must be followed during use:
 Avoid mechanical shocks or impacts from any sharp or hard objects

Do not use or place the Respirator in extreme heat, such as in direct sunlight, near heat sources, etc. The battery
will be damaged if its temperature goes above +100°C. Note: The CleanSpace™ will stop functioning if its
internal temperature rises above +60°C

Do not dispose of the Respirator or Endurance Packs in fire

Do not use CleanSpace™ Respirator in heavy rain, or allow it to get wet or immersed in liquid

Do not disassemble the Power Unit case. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Dissembling the power unit
will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Do not use the CleanSpace™ Respirator if there are any signs of severe mechanical damage
IMPORTANT: IN THE EXTREMELY RARE CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE THE BATTERY
IS DAMAGED AND ELECTROLYTE COMES IN CONTACT WITH EYES,
FLUSH WITH WATER IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK URGENT MEDICAL ATTENTION
