General Information
Bullard’s MB30 airline respirators, when properly used, provide a
continuous flow of air from a remote air source to the respirator
wearer. MB30 respirators offer protection from airborne
contaminants that are not immediately dangerous to life or health
(IDLH), as defined at 29 CFR 1910.134(b), or that do not exceed
concentrations allowed by applicable OSHA, EPA, NIOSH or ACGIH
regulations and recommendations.
MB30 airline respirators are approved by MSHA/NIOSH (TC-19C314 Type C and CE). Bullard has determined that these respirators
may be used to provide respiratory protection in general purpose
applications such as painting, glass etching, monument blasting,
automotive and aircraft body repair, architectural paint removal,
furniture and ornamental paint removal.
The materials from which the MB30 airline respirator is
constructed are not durable enough to withstand repeated
exposures to abrasive blasting. Repeated use for abrasive
blasting and/or use in industrial or heavy blasting operations may
tear holes in the material which could allow the intrusion of
contaminants and/or toxic substances. If this MB30 respirator is
used for abrasive blasting, it should only be used for occasional,
light duty, outside blasting or for abrasive operations where the
blaster is physically separated from the blasting nozzle.
Bullard models 88VX and Lancer abrasive blasting respirators
with hard-shell helmets would be better suited for industrial or
regular abrasive blasting applications.
WARNING
Read all instructions and warnings before using these respirators. Save this manual for future reference.
If the MB30 airline respirator is used in abrasive blasting operations, it is imperative that the employer and user be diligent in complying
with all OSHA regulations including those pertaining to inspections of the respirator for worn or deteriorated parts and the immediate
replacement of same. Failure to follow this warning or any other user instructions may result in death or delayed lung disease.
MB30 respirators are compatible with breathing air sources such as breathing air compressors or Bullard Free-Air® Pumps. Bullard offers
the appropriate approved breathing tube assembly and air supply hose to connect the MB30 respirator to these breathing air sources.
MB30 respirators are approved by NIOSH for use with optional Bullard climate control devices: AC1000 Series, HC2400 Series, Frigitron®
2000 Series and Dual-Cool®.

WARNING
1. Failure to observe all warnings and instructions could result in death or serious injury including delayed lung disease.
2. This respirator, when properly fitted and used, significantly reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the breathing of
contaminants by the respirator wearer. You may obtain better respiratory protection from a pressure-demand self-contained
breathing apparatus respirator. Bullard makes no representation that such a respirator can be used for abrasive blasting.
3. If this respirator is used for abrasive blasting, it should only be used for occasional, light duty, outside blasting or for abrasive
blasting operations where the blaster is physically separated from the nozzle. The material from which this airline respirator is
fabricated is not durable enough to withstand repeated exposures to abrasive blasting. Bullard models 88VX and Lancer abrasive
blasting respirators with hard-shell helmets would be better suited for industrial or regular abrasive blasting applications.
4. If the MB30 airline respirator is used in abrasive blasting operations, it is imperative that the employer and user be diligent in
complying with all OSHA regulations including those pertaining to inspections of the respirator for worn or deteriorated parts and
the immediate replacement of same. Failure to follow this warning or any other user instructions may result in death or delayed
lung disease.
5. Before using this respirator, be sure your employer has determined that airborne contaminant concentrations do not exceed those
allowed by applicable OSHA, MSHA, EPA, NIOSH or ACGIH regulations and recommendations for continuous-flow airline respirators.
Before using the above respirator, Federal law requires that the employer shall identify and evaluate the respiratory hazard(s) in
the workplace, and that this evaluation shall include a reasonable estimate of employee exposures to respiratory hazard(s), and an
identification of the contaminant’s chemical state and physical form.
6. Improper respirator use may cause certain life-threatening delayed lung diseases such as silicosis, pneumoconiosis or asbestosis,
which may damage your health and/or cause your death.
7. DO NOT wear this respirator if any of the following conditions exist:
- Atmosphere is immediately dangerous to your life or health (IDLH). IDLH is defined at 29 CFR 1910.134 (b).
- You CANNOT escape without the aid of the respirator.
- Atmosphere contains less than 19.5% oxygen.
- Work area is poorly ventilated.
- Unknown contaminants are present.
- Contaminants are in excess of regulations or recommendations (as described in item 2 above).
8. Bullard recommends that you DO NOT wear this respirator until you have passed a complete physical exam (perhaps including a lung
x-ray) conducted by qualified medical personnel, and have been trained in the respirator’s use, maintenance and limitations by a
qualified individual (appointed by your employer) who has extensive knowledge of the Bullard MB30 respirator.
9. DO NOT modify or alter this respirator in any manner. Use only MSHA/NIOSH approved Bullard MB30 components and replacement
parts manufactured by Bullard for use with this respirator. Failure to use MSHA/NIOSH approved components and replacement
parts such as lenses, hoses, flow-control devices, capes and climate-control devices, voids MSHA/NIOSH approval of the entire
respirator, invalidates all Bullard warranties, and may cause death, lung disease or exposure to other hazardous or life-threatening
conditions.
10. 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. Immediately replace worn or damaged components with
MSHA/NIOSH approved Bullard MB30 components or remove respirator from service. (See INSPECTION, CLEANING AND
STORAGE section on page 10 for proper maintenance of the MB30 respirator.)
11. Be certain your employer has determined that the breathing air source provides at least Grade D breathable air. This respirator
must be supplied with clean breathable air at all times.

Head
Air Source
MB30 respirators with the 20TG or 20RT headband DO NOT provide head protection.
IF head protection is required, order a hard hat which can be accommodated in the
MB30.
Locate the source of supplied air, whether it is a breathing air compressor or an
ambient 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.
This respirator is MSHA/NIOSH approved (TC-19C-314) for Type C and CE operations.
MB30 respirators, used in conjunction with Bullard 5100 or 3000 hard hats, meet
ANSI Standard Z89.1-2003 Class E and G requirements for protective headwear for
industrial workers. These hard hats are designed to provide limited head protection
by reducing the force of falling objects striking the top of the hard hat shell.
Face
The respirator’s inner window meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 Impact and Penetration
requirements for face protection. It provides limited face protection from flying
particles or spray of hazardous liquids, but is not shatterproof.
Eyes
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.
Breathing Air Pressure
Air pressure must be continually monitored at the point-of-attachment while
operating this respirator. A reliable air pressure gauge must be present to permit you
to continually monitor the pressure during actual respirator operation.
MB30 respirators DO NOT provide eye protection. Wear approved safety glasses or
goggles at all times.
Ears
MB30 respirators DO NOT provide hearing protection. Use properly fitted earmuffs,
earplugs or other protection when exposed to high noise levels.
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. Failure to
observe this warning could result in death or serious injury.
Air Quality
Respirable, breathable air must be supplied to the point-of-attachment of the
approved Bullard air supply hose. The point-of-attachment is where the air supply
hose connects to the fitting on the air supply that contains a pressure gauge, which is
used to monitor the pressure of air provided to the respirator wearer (See Figure 2).
Supplied breathing air must AT LEAST meet the requirements for Type 1 gaseous air
described in the Compressed Gas Association Commodity Specifications G-7.1 (Grade
D or higher quality), as specified by Federal Law 42 CFR, Part 84, Subpart J, 84.141.
Pressure Gauge
The Breathing Air Pressure Table (see page 6) defines the air pressure ranges
necessary to provide the MB30 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.
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.

tube assembly (column 2).
Breathing Air Requirements
Air Supply Hose
WARNING
Figure 2
MSHA/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 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 hood off your head.
Operations
MSHA/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 6) and the respirator’s
MSHA/NIOSH approval label (see page 2).

MB30 Respirator Use
NOTE
WARNING
DO NOT put on or remove this respirator in a hazardous
atmosphere. DO NOT remove this respirator in a hazardous
atmosphere except for emergency escape purposes. Failure to
observe this warning could result in death or serious injury.
Donning
Before using your MB30 respirator, complete the assembly
instructions given on pages 7-8.
1. Connect MSHA/NIOSH approved Bullard air supply hose to air
source supplying Grade D breathing air. Turn on breathing air
source.
2. With air flowing, connect breathing tube assembly to air supply
hose (see Figure 14). 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.
If using V20 Series (1/2” I.D.) air supply hose,
the hose quick-disconnect coupler does not
have a shut-off valve. Therefore, air will
continue to flow freely after disconnecting hose
from respirator.
WARNING
Failure to observe 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
Breathing Air Pressure Table (page 6).
- Breathing becomes difficult.
- You become dizzy, nauseous, too hot, too cold or ill.
- You taste, smell or see contaminants inside respirator hood.
- Vision becomes impaired.
DO NOT leave respirator in work area. Respirable dust
contaminants can remain suspended in air for more than one
hour after activity ceases even though you may not see them.
Proper work practice requires that you wear the respirator
until you are outside the contaminated area. Failure to doff and
store respirator outside of contaminated area could result in
exposure to contaminants.
Figure 14
3. Adjust air pressure at point-of-attachment to within the
approved pressure range (see Figure 2). See the Breathing Air
Pressure Table (page 6) for approved pressure ranges.
4. With air still flowing, put on MB30 respirator hood, inserting
chin first.
5. Position headband or hard hat for a comfortable fit. See
instructions on page 7 for proper sizing.
7. Be sure that the knitted inner neck cuff fits snugly around your
neck to help provide a barrier to airborne contaminants.
Straighten knitted cuff by gently pulling the cuff downward.
8. With breathing tube assembly attached, fasten belt at waist or
hip level and adjust for comfort.
9. Recheck air pressure and adjust if necessary.
10. With air still flowing into your respirator, you are now ready to
enter work area.
Doffing
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 quickdisconnect fittings.
MB30 Respirator Use/Donning/Doffing
6. Pull elastic chin strap under your chin and adjust for a secure

Inspection, Cleaning and Storage
Bullard MB30 Series respirators have a limited service life.
Therefore, a regular inspection and replacement program must be
conducted.
The Bullard MB30 Series respirator 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 complete MSHA/NIOSH approved Bullard MB30 Series
components and replacement parts on this respirator. Refer to
parts list for correct part numbers.
Because 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.
This respirator should be cleaned 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
Hood and Headband
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.
Remove the headband suspension and chin strap from the hood.
Inspect headband for cracks, frayed or cut crown straps, torn
headband or size adjustment slots, loss of pliability or other signs
of excessive wear. Check the chin strap for loss of elasticity, cuts
or cracked hanger clips.
If damage is detected, replace immediately with Bullard
replacement part(s), or remove the respirator from service.
Cleaning: We do not recommend laundering the hood. When the
hood becomes dirty, it should be cleaned with warm water and
mild detergent, rinsed and air dried. The respirator’s plastic lens,
headband suspension and chin strap 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.
Do not use volatile-type solvents for cleaning this respirator or
any parts and assemblies. Strong cleaning and disinfecting
agents, and many solvents can damage the plastic parts.
Hard Hat
Inspection: Inspect the hard hat shell for nicks, gouges, cracks,
and any damage due to impact, rough treatment or wear.
Remove the headband suspension and chin strap from the hard
hat. Inspect the headband for cracks, frayed or cut crown straps,
torn headband and size adjustment slots, loss of pliability or other
signs of excessive wear. Check the chin strap for loss of elasticity,
cuts and cracked hanger clips.
If damage is detected, replace part(s) immediately with Bullard
replacement parts or remove the respirator from service.
Cleaning: The hard hat shell, headband suspension and chin
strap 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.
Breathing Tube Assembly
Inspection: Inspect the vinyl 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.
Check to see that the adjustment knob on the flow control device
is not cracked or damaged. Be sure the airflow control device is
screwed tightly into the breathing tube so air cannot escape.
If any signs of excessive wear are present, replace the breathing
tube assembly immediately or remove the respirator from service.
Cleaning: To clean the breathing tube assembly, hand-sponge
with warm water and mild detergent, rinse and air-dry. Do not get
water inside the flow control device or breathing tube. After
cleaning, once again carefully inspect breathing tube for signs of
damage.
CAUTION
DO NOT cut or remove foam that is inside the 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.
Air Supply Hoses
Inspection: The starter and extension 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 hoses that are NIOSH approved for use with this
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.
