WARNING
• The PA20 respirator does not supply oxygen.
• Use only in adequately ventilated areas containing at least 19.5% oxygen.
• Do not use when concentrations of contaminants are immediately dangerous to life or health.
• Do not use these respirators for respiratory protection during abrasive blasting.
• Do not use in circumstances where the airborne concentration level of contaminant exceeds maximum use
concentration for this type of respirator as established by regulatory standards.
• Leave area immediately if:
Breathing becomes difficult;
Dizziness or other distress occurs;
You taste or smell the contaminant
Unit becomes damaged;
Low voltage alarm sounds.
• Use strictly in accordance with instructions, labels and limitations pertaining to the PA20 respirator in use.
• This apparatus must not be worn with the blower unit switched off. If switched off, a rapid build-up of carbon dioxide
and depletion of oxygen may occur, which could result in death or serious injury.
• Never alter or modify this respirator. Use only NIOSH approved PA20 components and replacement parts for this
respirator.
Failure to follow all of these instructions could result in death or serious injury.
