IMPORTANT
Before use, each person using this equipment must read and understand these User Instructions.
Keep these User Instructions for reference.
Do Not Use For
Filtering and regulation of air sources when airborne contaminant concentrations are unknown or
immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH), unless used in conjunction with a back-up escape
system or a self-contained breathing apparatus/supplied air respirator (SCBA/SAR),
where applicable.
General Description
A complete 3M filter and regulator panel will operate as follows. (Fig. 1)
1. Air entering the four-stage filtration system at the inlet (A) is usually contaminated with oil,
water, dirt, rust, scale and vaporous hydrocarbons.
2. As the air passes through the first stage of the prefilter (B), particulate matter 3.0 microns and
larger are trapped and retained.
3. The air then enters the second stage of the prefilter (C) which traps particulate matter larger
than 0.3 microns and coalesces liquid aerosols with an efficiency rating of 99.97%. The liquid
contaminates are trapped in the lower chamber of the prefilter and expelled through the
automatic float drain (D).
4. The third stage (E) and fourth stage (F) contain a bed of odor absorbing activated charcoal.
5. The air is then passed through the air pressure regulator (G), which is used to adjust the air
pressure going to the respirators.
6. A sample of the filtered air is taken at (H) and passed through the carbon monoxide monitor (I).
7. The carbon monoxide monitor continuously checks the carbon monoxide concentration and
digitally displays the amount present in ppm (parts per million). An audio and visual alarm will
alert operators if carbon monoxide concentrations exceed a preset level (10 ppm USA;
5 ppm Canada).

3M Respirator Capacity
The 3M filter and regulator panel is supplied with quick-disconnects at the outlet for connection of
up to eight (8) supplied air respirators. The actual number of respirators that may be connected to
the 3M filter and regulator panel is dependent on the inlet pressure to the panel and the airflow and
pressure requirements of the respiratory protection. (Fig. 2) As the air passes through the panel
there is resistance to flow called pressure drop. The more airflow through the filter and regulator
panel, the greater the pressure drop. The air control devices approved for use with the
3M respirators must be operated within the supply pressure ranges and hose lengths stated in their
User Instructions. Use Figure 2 along with information on the maximum airflow consumption,
supply pressure ranges, and approved hose lengths as stated in the User Instructions for the 3M air
control device to determine the number of respirators of a specific type that may be connected to
the panel.
Fig. 2
Discussion on Respirable Air
Many older compressed air systems may have air that is unfit for human use without secondary air
treatment. This is due largely to the presence of objectionable oil vapors and odors. Rules and
regulations governing air quality when using compressed air for respiration are quite specific.
Precautions must be observed when using compressed air for breathing purposes.

CSA standard Z180.1. Failure to do so may result in sickness or death.
Your employer must provide breathing air that meets at least the requirements of the
specification for Grade D breathing air, as described in the Compressed Gas Association
Commodity Specification G-7.1-1997 in the United States. In Canada, refer to CSA standard
Z180.1, table for the quality of compressed breathing air. Failure to do so may result in
sickness or death.
There is no assurance that by using the 3M™ Portable Compressed Air Filter and Regulator
Panel 256-02-01, with Carbon Monoxide (CO) Monitor the filtered compressed air will meet
the requirements of Grade D breathing air. In Canada, refer to the requirements of
CSA standard Z180.1.
The line pressure must be kept within safe limits, 125 psig (8.75 kg/cm2) maximum. Dirt, oil
and water, unless trapped or filtered out, may continue downstream in concentrated form and
adversely affect the performance of the respirator and may result in sickness or death.
Oil mist from the compressor lubricating oil must not be present when the air reaches the air
control device. Excessive amounts of water vapor and any particulate matter should also be
removed as they may affect performance of the air control devices.
Where large amounts of aerosols of oil, water and other liquids are present, an optional coalescing
prefilter should be installed on the input side of the 3M filter and regulator panel.
NOTE: Carbon monoxide
Although it is theoretically possible that oil lubricated compressors can create carbon monoxide
(CO) if the compressor overheats, studies have shown that the location of the compressor’s air
intake is the most likely source of carbon monoxide contamination.1 According to OSHA
regulation [29 CFR (1910.134)(i)], periodic CO monitoring, rather than continuous CO monitoring
with an alarm, is acceptable if the oil lubricated compressor is equipped with a high temperature
alarm and automatic shut-down. In Canada, follow CSA Z180.1 regarding oil
lubricated compressors.

Set Up Procedures
The 3M filter and regulator panel, when used in accordance with the following instructions, will
remove or reduce selected contaminants from compressed air lines. (Fig. 4)
W WARNING
The 3M™ Portable Compressed Air Filter and Regulator Panel 256-02-01, with CO monitor
should not be used when the air entering the filter is oxygen deficient. These units will not
increase the oxygen content of oxygen deficient air. Use with oxygen deficient air may result
in sickness or death.
The 3M filter and regulator panel can be wall mounted right in the case. Simply drill holes in the
back of case to allow for installation of screws or bolts. Use washers on the screws or bolts to
prevent the screws from pulling out from the unit.
The user’s supply line to the inlet of the 3M filter and regulator panel should be a minimum of
3/4" I.D. The air supply entering the filter and regulator panel should meet the following criteria
to insure maximum efficiency of the filter system:
– Temperature range should be 35-150°F (2-65°C)
– Large amounts of aerosols of oil, water, and other liquids should be removed prior to
entering the filter and regulator panel (greater than 50 ppm - oil and water aerosols plus solids).
Conditioning equipment may be necessary prior to the filter and regulator panel to control the air
temperature and bulk liquid removal.
8
netzerotools.com
netzerotools.com
The filter and regulator panel must be installed a minimum of 25 feet away from the compressor.
The actual distance required from the compressor shall be determined by the temperature of the air.
The air supply temperature at the filter should be 35-150°F (2-65°C) for maximum efficiency.
Conditioning equipment may be necessary, prior to the filter, to achieve this temperature
range. (Fig. 4)
The filter and regulator panel is used to adjust the air pressure supplied to the air control devices
of a respiratory protection system. Consult instructions on your particular air control device for
pressure requirements.
The filter and regulator panel comes with a 3M™ Carbon Monoxide Monitor designed to provide
continuous, direct read CO monitoring. The carbon monoxide monitor in the filter and regulator
panel is CSA certified intrinsically safe for Class 1, Div. I, Groups A, B, C & D Hazardous
Locations when utilizing the two 9 volt batteries to power the monitor. See the carbon monoxide
monitor User Instructions. If the optional AC power adapter is used, the power cable can be
routed out through an existing vent hole or an additional hole can be drilled for this cord.
The filter and regulator panel is supplied with an industrial interchange plug (1/2" body size, 3/4" MPT)
at the inlet and eight (8) industrial interchange quick-disconnects (1/4" body size, 3/8" MPT) at
the outlet.
The filter cartridges have an average life expectancy of one (1) to two (2) months
(or approximately 160-320 hours, depending on the quality of the air in your compressed air lines)
under normal conditions. The frequency of filter change will depend on the quality of the
incoming compressed air and how much the panel is used. All three (3) filters should be changed
at the same time.
The carbon monoxide alarm will sound to alert the operator that a problem has developed.
The monitor alarm will sound due to one or more of the following conditions:
W WARNING
