GENERAL INFORMATION
Bullard’s Spectrum-CF airline respirator, when properly used, provides a
continuous flow of air from a remote air source to the respirator wearer.
Spectrum-CF 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, EPA, NIOSH or ACGIH regulations and recommendations for continuous-flow or pressure-demand class
airline respirators.
Spectrum-cf respirators are compatible with breathing air sources such as
air compressors or Bullard Free-Air® Pumps. Bullard offers the appropriate approved breathing tube assembly and air supply hose to connect the
Spectrum-CF respirator to these breathing air sources. This respirator is
available in two mask sizes. A probed mask kit is available for quantitative fit
testing. Contact Bullard or our local authorized distributor for more information about other accessories for Spectrum-CF respirators.
Spectrum-CF airline respirators are approved by NIOSH (TC-19C-322 Type
C, Continuous-Flow Class and TC-19C-321, Pressure-Demand Class) to provide respiratory protection in general purpose applications, including spray
painting, tank cleaning, chemical and pesticide handling, and other industrial
or agricultural applications. The Spectrum-CF is NOT to be used in confined
spaces or in IDLH conditions.

Arlington, VA 22202) for complete details on commodity Specifications G-7.1
AIR SOURCE
Locate the source of supplied air, whether it is an 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 the air source. Use
suitable after-cooler/dryers with filters, and carbon monoxide monitors and
alarms, like Bullard’s Alert-1™ CO monitor, 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.

AIR QUALITY
� WARNING
This respirator MUST be supplied with clean, breathable air,
Grade D or better, at all times. This respirator does NOT purify
air or filter out contaminants.
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).
The Breathing Air Pressure Tables (See page 10) define the air pressure
ranges necessary to provide Spectrum-CF respirators with a volume of air
that falls within the required range of 4-15 cfm (Ref. 42 CFR, Part 84, Subpart
J.84.150) when operated in continuous-flow mode. Meets pressure-demand
class requirements when operated within the pressure ranges listed in Table
2 (Ref. 42 CFR 84.157). Make sure you understand the information in the
Breathing Air Pressure Table (see page 10) before using this respirator.
1. Determine the type of air source you are using (column 1), then find the
breathing tube assembly (column 2).
2. Be sure your Bullard air supply hose(s) (column 3) is approved for use
with your breathing tube assembly.
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 breathing tube assembly and air supply
hose type and length. Accurate pressure readings can only be attained
when air is flowing into the respirator.
www.bullard.com
Operations
Supplied breathing air must AT a minimum meet the requirements for Type
1 gaseous air described in the Compressed Gas Association Commodity
Specification G-7.1 (Grade D or higher quality), as specified by Federal
Regulations 42 CFR, Part 84.141 (b) and 29 CFR 1910.134 (i).
Failure to supply the minimum required pressure at the pointof-attachment for your hose length and type will reduce airflow and may Cause injury, disease or death.

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-of-attachment to
the air supply (see Figure 1). NIOSH-approved Bullard quick-disconnect fittings MUST be used to connect V20 hose lengths together. When connecting lengths
of V10 hose, only use Bullard V11 hose-to-hose adaptors. Secure connection(s) until wrench-tight 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 10) and the respirator’s
NIOSH approval labels (see pages 1 and 2). The breathing tube connection fitting MUST be secured to the belt that is supplied with this respirator. Securing
the air entry connection fitting helps prevent the air supply hose from snagging, disconnecting or pulling the respirator off your face.

replacement parts on this respirator. Refer to the parts list for correct part
numbers.
The respirator should be cleaned, inspected and sanitized at least weekly or
more often if subjected to heavy use. 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.
REMEMBER, THE AIR YOU BREATHE WILL NOT BE CLEAN UNLESS THE
RESPIRATOR YOU WEAR IS CLEAN.
Inspection Cleaning and Storage
Mask
10
Immerse the facepiece in warm water (about 120 degrees F) with mild
detergent or a
germicidal disinfecting detergent. The respirator body and parts may be
scrubbed gently with a cloth or soft brush. All foreign matter must be
removed carefully from all surfaces of the exhalation valve flap and seat.
Rinse the respirator in clean, warm water (about 120 degrees F). Shake to
remove excess water, and allow to air-dry away from direct heat, sunlight or
contaminants.
Breathing Tube
Inspection: Inspect the breathing tube for tears, cracks, holes or excessive wear that might reduce the degree of protection originally provided. Be
sure the quick-disconnect fitting is screwed tightly into the breathing tube so
no air can escape.
If any signs of excessive wear are present, replace the breathing tube
assembly immediately or remove the respirator from service.
Cleaning: Hand-sponge breathing tube with warm water and mild detergent, rinse and air-dry. Do not get water inside the breathing tube. After
cleaning, once again carefully inspect breathing tube for signs of damage.
Air Supply Hose
Inspection: The hose(s) should be inspected closely for abrasions, corrosion, cuts, cracks and blistering. Make sure the hose fittings are crimped
tightly to the hose so that air cannot 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 air supply 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 hoses that are approved by NIOSH for use with this
respirator. Other hoses could reduce airflow and protection,
and expose the wearer to life-threatening conditions.
Storage
After reusable respirator components have been cleaned and inspected,
place them in a clean 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. Store the respirator so it is protected from distortion from the weight or pressure of surrounding objects.
Wipe any areas still showing accumulations of foreign matter with a cloth
moistened in a detergent or a solvent such as mineral spirits or naphtha,
until clean.
Stubborn accumulations of paints, lacquers or enamels may be removed
with a cloth containing a paint, enamel or lacquer stripping agent. Once
the dirt or paint is loosened, it may be gently rubbed or brushed off.DO

Spectrum™ Continuous Flow Airline Respirator
Instruction Manual
fit testing
According to Osha’s revised Respiratory Standard, 29 CFR 1910.134, all
tight-fitting facepieces must now be fit tested, regardless of the mode of
operation. This includes all respirator models in the Spectrum Series. Users
must pass either a qualitative or quantitative fit test, and fit testing must
be performed in the negative pressure mode. Bullard’s QNFT45 fit test kit
converts the Spectrum facepiece to the negative pressure mode, and can be
used for either type of fit testing. The instruction sheet that accompanies the
kit provides guidance on its proper use.
The options for qualitative challenge agents include: isoamyl acetate (banana
oil), irritant smoke, saccharin and Bitrex (denatonium benzoate). Quantitative
options include generated aerosol (like the fit test chamber in Bullard’s lab),
ambient aerosol CNC (Portacount method), or controlled negative pressure
(Dynatech Nevada Fit Tester 3000 method). The minimum fit factor for a fullface respirator is 500.
The qualitative fit test protocols that had existed in the substance-specific
