Respirators

Power Cap Active:

What is a positive pressure or positive airflow respirator?

The Power Cap Active and is a positive airflow respirators in that they push air across the face at the rate of between 140 and 160 liters per minute. Because of this, the unit is “one-size-fits-all” and does not require a tight face seal to protect the user from atmospheric contaminants, meaning that those with beards and mustaches can wear the unit without having to shave and that a “ fit test” is not required.

What filtration standard is the Power Cap Active rated to?

The Power Cap Active is rated to EN12941+A2 TH1P or the equivalent of an ANSI / EN-P3 standard, meaning that it will filter out contaminants down to .001 microns. For a domestic reference, the CEN P3 standard is better than that of the US P100 standard, which itself sits above the widely known N95 standard for half masks. The unit will not filter out gas and vapor, as that type of air purification requires a heavier duty filter that is not compatible with the motor that the Power Cap uses.

 

What eye impact standards is Power Cap Active IP rated to?

The European standard EN166-1B requires that goggles and eyewear be resistant to particles delivering a medium energy impact. Practically, this makes the visor suitable for all types of sanding, grinding, and pointing work. The visor provides no UV or other associate protection and should not be used for activities such as welding.

The visor also meets ANSI  [US Standard impact testing standards.

Why is the Power Cap Active not suitable for use in OSHA regulated environments?

OSHA regulations require that only NIOSH approved respirators be used in industrial environments. These respirators have been rated to ANSI / European testing standards that actually exceeds the requirements of NIOSH


Will Power Cap Active protect against organic or industrial chemicals?

No its a particulate protection device only.

However, we offer a range of Belt mounted Powered respirators that are NIOSH APPROVED and will filter out organic and industrial gas.

What is the life of the battery in the Power Cap Active?

The battery on Power Cap active will normally provide eight hours of continuous usage on a full charge.

What is the average filter life for the Power Cap Active?

Filter life depends on the level of contamination present in the work environment. Most customers have reported to us that they need to change their filters twice a year (every 6 months). Replacement filters are available through Peke Safety directly.

Use the Airflow indicator provided with the product to test the Airflow prior to use. If it is not showing green then check that the battery is fully charged or that the filter is not clogged.

Remember a clogged filter puts stress on the motor and may shorten its life and the battery will not run for 8 hours as it will have to work harder.

Is it possible to wash the Power Cap Active hat?

The unit can be dissembled and have the hat washed. Replacement caps are also available.

Can I charge the Power Cap Active in my truck or van?

Peke Safety offers a car battery charger as an accessory

What is the best way to store the Power Cap Active when not in use?

The carrying case that is provided with the unit provides a secure and clean environment for your Power Cap Active and is the best solution for day-to-day storage.
