Service Life of Chemical Cartridges and Filters
3M™ 6000 Series Chemical Cartridges should be used before the expiration date on cartridge packaging.
The useful service life of these cartridges will depend upon activity of wearer (breathing rate); specific type,
volatility and concentration of contaminants; and environmental conditions such as humidity, pressure,
and temperature. Cartridges must be replaced in accordance with an established change schedule or
earlier if smell, taste or irritation from contaminants is detected.
Filters must be replaced if they become damaged, soiled or if an increase in breathing resistance occurs.
N-series filters should not be used in environments containing oils. R-series filters may be limited to 8
hours of continuous or intermittent use if oil aerosols are present. In environments containing only oil
aerosols, P-series filters should be replaced after 40 hours of use or 30 days, whichever is first.

Cleaning and Storage
Cleaning is recommended after each use.
Do not clean respirator with solvents. Cleaning with solvents may degrade some respirator components
and reduce respirator effectiveness. Inspect all respirator components before each use to ensure proper
operating condition. Failure to do so may result in sickness or death.
1. Remove cartridges, filters and/or breathing tubes. The center adapter, lens and faceseal can also be
removed if necessary.
2. Clean facepiece (excluding filters and cartridges), by immersing in warm cleaning solution, water
temperature not to exceed 120° F (49° C), and scrub with soft brush until clean. Add neutral detergent
if necessary. Do not use cleaners containing lanolin or other oils.
3. Disinfect facepiece by soaking in a solution of quaternary ammonia disinfectant or sodium
hypochloride (1 oz [30 ML] household bleach in 2 gallons [7.5 L] of water), or other disinfectant.
4. Rinse in fresh, warm water and air dry in noncontaminated atmosphere.
5. Respirator components should be inspected prior to each use. A respirator with any damaged or
deteriorated components should be repaired or discarded before use.
6. The cleaned respirator should be stored away from contaminated areas when not in use.

REPLACEMENT PART INSTRUCTIONS
Respirator parts should be inspected prior to each use. Replace worn or deteriorated parts with new parts.
3MTM Lens 7884
The lens should be inspected for cracking or crazing. Replace if necessary. Replace as follows: Remove
two screws on either side of lens with a Phillips screwdriver, remove the top and bottom lens frame and
remove the lens. To reassemble, first align the center of the lens with the centerline of the facepiece. The
center of the lens is marked by two small lines, one at the top center and second at the bottom center of the
lens. Place the lens into the facepiece and then reattach the lens frame. Replace the two center screws and
tighten.
3MTM Exhalation Valve Cover 7918 and Exhalation Valve 7283
Remove the 3M TM Exhalation Valve 7918 cover by lifting out on the two top prongs on either side of the
center opening and sliding down. Remove the exhalation valve by grasping and pulling on the edges of the
valve. Replace the valve if it is warped, distorted, cut, split or if it will not seal tightly on the valve seat.
Replace by pushing the valve onto the exhalation valve post.
3MTM Speaking Diaphragm Kit 7895
Remove the nose cup. Using the diaphragm removal tool, turn diaphragm retaining ring counter
clockwise and remove. Push diaphragm assembly out of the facepiece from underneath using the eraser
