User Manual
Bullard RT Series Respiratory Systems provide a continuous flow of air from
a remote air source via airline. The flow of air is delivered to the respirator
wearer through a patented air delivery system. RT Series respirators
offer protection from airborne contaminants that are not immediately
dangerous to life or health (IDLH), or that do not exceed concentrations
allowed by applicable OSHA, MSHA, EPA, NIOSH or ACGIH regulations and
recommendations, or any other applicable regulations for continuous flow
airline or powered air-purifying respirators.
respirators. All Bullard parts must be present and properly assembled to
constitute a NIOSH approved respirator. For technical assistance, contact
Bullard Cutomer Service at 877-BULLARD (285-5273) or 859-234-6616.
NOTE
Bullard RT Series hoods are also NIOSH approved for certain PAPR
configurations. Please refer to your Bullard PAPR manual or call
Customer Service at 877-BULLARD (285-5273).
RT Series airline respirators are approved by NIOSH (TC-19C-412
Type C). Bullard has determined that these respirators may be used to
provide respiratory protection in general purpose applications, including
pharmaceutical manufacturing, chemical and pesticide handling, tank
cleaning, spray painting and other industrial or agricultural applications in
which hazardous compounds are present.
Bullard RT hoods are available in two different Tychem® materials. Bullard
hoods will accommodate limited facial hair without compromising the level of
protection. The hood is held in place by the inflatable neck cuff (RT1 and RT2)
or a sport material neck cuff (RT3 and RT4), which fits under the wearer’s
chin and provides a positive seal. This keeps the hood in position on the
head and prevents it from rising upwards when supplied with breathing air.
Breathing air is supplied from a breathing tube connected to the back of the
hood, and the air is routed through overhead channels that deliver the air
down across the lens of the hood.
RT Series respirators are compatible with breathing air sources such as
breathing air compressors. Bullard offers the appropriate approved breathing
tube, flow control device and air supply hose to connect the RT Series
respirator to these breathing air sources.
RT Series respirators are approved by NIOSH for use with optional Bullard
climate control devices. Contact Bullard or our local authorized distributor
for more information about these and other accessories for RT Series
WARNING
Read all instructions and warnings before using these respirators. Save this manual for future reference.
The RT Series respirator’s air source must supply clean, breathable air, Grade D or better, at all times. The RT respirator does not purify air or filter out
contaminants. Connecting the RT respirator to a line supplying nitrogen or other harmful gases could cause death or serious injury. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in death or serious injury.

RT Series Respirator Breathing Air Requirements
Air Quality
WARNING
Operations / Breathinig Air Requirements
The RT Series respirator must be supplied with clean, breathable air,
Grade D or better, at all times. This respirator does NOT purify or filter
out contaminants. Failure to heed these warnings could result in death
or serious injury.
4
Respirable, breathable air must be supplied to the point-of-attachment of
the approved Bullard air supply hose. The point-of-attachment is the point
at which the air supply hose connects to the air source. A pressure gauge
attached to the air source is used to monitor the pressure of air provided to
the respirator wearer (see Figure 2).
Supplied breathing air must AT MINIMUM meet the requirements for Type 1
gaseous air described in the ANSI/Compressed Gas Association Commodity
Specification G-7.1 for Grade D or higher quality as specified by Federal
regulations 42 CFR, Part 84.141(b) and 29CFR1910.134(i).
The requirements for Grade D breathable air include:
Oxygen. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 19.5-23.5%
Hydrocarbons (condensed) in mg/m3 of gas. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 mg/m3 max.
Carbon monoxide. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 ppm max.
Carbon dioxide. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1,000 ppm max.
Odor. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . *
No toxic contaminants at levels that make air unsafe to breathe.
*Specific measurement of odor in gaseous air is impractical. Air may normally
have a slight odor. The presence of a pronounced odor should render the air
unsatisfactory.
Contact the Compressed Gas Association (1725 Jefferson Davis Highway,
Arlington, VA 22202) or www.cganet.com for complete details on Commodity
Specification G-7.1.
Air Source
Locate the source of supplied air, whether it is a breathing air compressor
or an ambient air pump, such as a Bullard Free-Air® pump, in a clean air
environment. Locate the air source far enough from your work site to ensure
the air remains contaminant-free. Always use an inlet filter on your air
source.
Use suitable after-cooler/dryers with filters, and carbon monoxide monitors
and alarms, as necessary to assure clean, breathable air at all times.
The air should be regularly sampled to be sure that it meets Grade D
requirements.
RT Series Respirator Breathing Air Pressure
Air pressure should be monitored at the point-of-attachment while operating
this respirator. A reliable air pressure gauge must be present to permit you to
monitor pressure during actual respirator operation.
WARNING
Failure to supply the minimum required pressure at the point-of-attachment for your hose length and RT respirator type will reduce airflow and
could result in death or serious injury.
Special or Critical User’s Instructions
The Breathing Air Pressure Table (see page 5) defines the air pressure ranges
necessary to provide RT Series respirators with a volume of air that falls
within the required range of 6-15 cfm or 170-425 lpm (Ref. 42 CFR, Part 84,
Subpart J, 84.150).
Make sure you understand the information in the Breathing Air Pressure Table
before using this respirator.
1. Determine the type of air source you are using (Column 1), then find your
flow control valve/climate control device (Column 2).
2. Be sure your Bullard air supply hose (Column 3) is approved for use with
your flow control valve/climate control device.
3. Determine that your Bullard air supply hose is within the approved length
(Column 4).
4. Make sure you have not exceeded the maximum number of hose sections
(Column 5).
5. Set the air pressure at the point-of-attachment within the required
pressure range (Column 6) for your flow control valve/climate control device,
and air supply hose type and length.
RT Series Respirator Breathing Air Supply Hoses
and Hose Fittings
NIOSH approved Bullard air supply hose(s) MUST be used between the
breathing tube connection fitting on the wearer’s belt and the point-ofattachment to the air supply.
NIOSH approved Bullard quick-disconnect fittings MUST be used to connect
V5 or V20 hose lengths together. When connecting lengths of V10 hose, only
use Bullard V11 hose-to-hose adapters. Secure connection(s) until wrenchtight and leak-free. Total connected hose length and number of hoses MUST
be within the ranges specified on the Breathing Air Pressure Table (see page
5).
The breathing tube connection fitting MUST be secured to the belt that is
supplied with this respirator. Securing the breathing tube connection helps
prevent the air supply hose from snagging, disconnecting or pulling the
respirator hood off your head.

Shortening RTBT Breathing Tube Length
If you find that the RTBT disposable breathing tube is too long, it can be cut
down to a shorter length. This cannot be done for the 20BT breathing tube.
To do this, first determine how much shorter you need to make the tube. The
tube cannot be shortened more than 6 inches. Mark a line with a marker pen
where you want to make the cut. Take a sharp cutting instrument and cut
through the breathing tube and foam inside. Be careful not to damage the
remaining tube or foam. If this does occur, replacement will be necessary.
Using Climate Control Devices for RT Series
Airline Respirators
RT Series Airline Respirators are approved by NIOSH for use with three
optional Bullard climate control devices: AC1000 Series, HC2400 Series, and
Frigitron 2000 Series.

Before using your RT Series respirator, assemble the respirator using the
instructions given on page 6.
1. Connect NIOSH approved Bullard air supply hose to an air source supplying
Grade D breathable air as defined on page 4. Turn on breathing air source.
2. With air flowing, connect breathing tube assembly to air supply hose (see
Figure 7). Connect quick-disconnect fitting on breathing tube assembly to
quick-disconnect coupler on air supply hose. Once fitting is secured, release
coupling sleeve to lock fittings together. Pull on both hoses to make sure they
are attached securely.
Figure 7
3. Adjust air pressure at point-of-attachment to within the approved pressure
range (see Figure 8). See the Breathing Air Pressure Table (page 5) for approved pressure ranges.

7. Pull respirator outer bib over collar of shirt or protective clothing. Pull
the long outer bib down on the outside of clothing and secure with tie down
straps or tape (if employer operating procedures will allow.)
10. With breathing tube assembly attached to the hood, fasten belt at waist or
hip level and adjust for comfort.
11. Recheck air pressure and adjust if necessary.
12. With air flowing into your respirator, you are now ready to enter work
area.
Removing the RT Series Respirator
When finished working, leave work area wearing respirator and with air still
flowing. Once outside contaminated area, remove respirator and then disconnect the air supply hose using the quick-disconnect fittings.
Air Supply Hose
4. With air still flowing, put on RT Series respirator hood. Pull the hood over
your head until the neck cuff is securely around your neck.
NOTE
The RT3 and RT4 hoods have an adjustable velcro strap near the top of
the lens that allows the user to customize the curvature of the lens to
his/her personal preference. This strap may be removed if desired.
5. Make sure that the breathing tube is not twisted after donning.
6. Tuck inner bib of hood into shirt or protective clothing for additional splash
and overspray protection (see Figure 9).

Inspection, Cleaning and Storage
WARNING
WARNING
Failure to heed these instructions could result in death or serious injury.
LEAVE WORK AREA IMMEDIATELY IF:
- Any respirator component becomes damaged
- Airflow into respirator hood stops or slows down
- Air pressure gauge drops below the minimum specified in the
Breathing Air Pressure Table
- Pressure is felt in the ears
- Breathing becomes difficult
- You become dizzy, nauseous, too hot, too cold, or ill
- You taste, smell, or see contaminants inside respirator hood
- Your vision becomes impaired
WARNING
Inspection, Cleaning and Storage
Do not store respirator in your work area or leave it unattended in
a contaminated environment. Respirable contaminants can remain
suspended in the air for several hours after work activity ceases,
even though you may not see them. Proper work practice requires you
to wear the respirator until you are outside the contaminated area.
If you place or store the respirator in a contaminated environment,
contaminants, dirt, and dust could get into the respirator. When you put
the respirator back on, you could breathe in contaminants upon reuse.
Failure to heed these instructions could result in death or serious injury.
8
Bullard RT Series respirators have a limited service life. Therefore, a regular
inspection and replacement program must be conducted.
Bullard RT Series respirators and all component parts and assemblies should
be inspected for damage or excessive wear before and after each use to
ensure proper functioning. Immediately remove the respirator from service
and replace parts or assemblies that show any sign of failure or excessive
wear that might reduce the degree of protection originally provided.
Use only Bullard RT Series respirator components and replacement parts
manufactured by Bullard and approved by NIOSH for use with these
respirators.
Since respirator use and the quality of maintenance performed vary with
each job site, it is impossible to provide a specific time frame for respirator
replacement.
Inspect all components of this respirator system during cleaning and before
and after each use for signs of wear, tear or damage that might reduce the
degree of protection originally provided. Respirators used by more than
one person must be cleaned, inspected and sanitized after each use. If not
cleaned, contamination may cause illness or disease.
The air you breathe will not be clean unless the respirator you wear
is clean. Failure to heed this warning could result in death or serious
injury.
Hood
Inspection
Inspect the hood material for rips, tears, or damage from excessive wear that
might reduce the degree of protection originally provided. Inspect the inner
neck cuff for elasticity. The respirator’s plastic lens should be inspected for
cracks, scratches or any other signs of damage.
Disassemble the breathing tube from the hood by removing the nylon hose
clamp. To remove the hose clamp, slide the locks sideways in opposite
directions.
If damage is detected, replace immediately with Bullard replacement part(s)
or remove the respirator from service.
Cleaning
Bullard does not recommend laundering the hood. When the hood becomes
dirty, it should be discarded and replaced. The respirator’s plastic lens should
be hand-sponged with warm water and mild detergent, rinsed, and air-dried.
After cleaning and before reassembling, once again carefully inspect parts for
signs of damage.
WARNING
Do not use volatile solvents for cleaning this respirator or any parts and
assemblies. Strong cleaning and disinfecting agents, and many solvents,
can damage the plastic parts and reduce the protective properties of
the respirator. Failure to heed these instructions may result in minor or
moderate injury and/or equipment damage.

User Manual for use with supplied air respirators
Breathing Tube
Air Supply Hoses
Inspection
Inspect the breathing tube for tears, cracks, holes, or excessive wear that
might reduce the degree of protection originally provided. If any signs of excessive wear are present, replace the breathing tube immediately or remove
the respirator from service.
Cleaning
To clean the breathing tube, hand-sponge with warm water and mild detergent, being careful not to get water inside. Rinse and air-dry. After cleaning,
once again carefully inspect breathing tube for signs of damage.
Flow Control Valve/
Climate Control Device
Inspection
Be sure the hose thread is screwed tightly into the breathing tube so no air
can escape during use. Check the adjustment knob on the flow control device
for cracks and other damage.
Cleaning
To clean, hand-sponge with warm water and mild detergent, being careful
not to get water inside. After cleaning, once again carefully inspect breathing
tube for signs of damage. If any signs of excessive wear are present, replace
the flow control valve/climate control device or remove the respirator from
service.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the foam that is inside the RT Series Airline
Respirator breathing tube. The foam helps reduce the noise level of
the incoming air supply. It does not filter or purify your breathing air.
NIOSH has approved this respirator with the foam in place. Failure to
follow these instructions may result in minor or moderate injury and/or
equipment damage.
Inspection
Air supply hose(s) should be inspected closely for abrasions, corrosion, cuts,
cracks and blistering. Be sure the hose fittings are crimped tightly to the hose
so that no air can escape. Make sure the hose has not been kinked or crushed
by any equipment that may have rolled over it.
If any of the above signs are present or any other signs of excessive wear
are detected, replace the hose(s) immediately or remove the respirator from
service.
Cleaning
The air supply hose(s) should be hand-sponged with warm water and mild
detergent, rinsed and air dried. Do not get water inside the air supply hose.
After cleaning, once again carefully inspect air supply hose(s) for signs of
damage.
WARNING
Only use air supply hoses that are NIOSH approved for use with the RT
Series respirator. Other hoses could reduce airflow and protection, and
expose the wearer to life-threatening conditions. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in death or serious injury.
Storage
After reusable respirator components have been cleaned and inspected, place
them in a plastic bag or an airtight container.
Store the respirator and parts where they will be protected from contamination, distortion and damage from elements such as dust, direct sunlight, heat,
extreme cold, excessive moisture and harmful chemicals. Five-year maximum
shelf life.
