How often should i change my filters?
Unfortunately there is no one time fits all answer to this question as it depends on frequency of use, the level of exposure in the environment, and what you are exposing yourself to. Filters work like a strainer, trapping particles out of the air. When the filter fills up with these particles, the filter is no longer functioning. Once the filters have absorbed all they can, the particles start passing through and can lock up your motor.
Simple answer: when the filter looks dirty, the air flow indicator is showing lower air flows, or you are starting to smell or taste fumes; it's time to change your filters.
How should i clean my powercap?
To get the best use from your powercap, you should be cleaning the pre-filters by removing them from the filters, and either dusting them off or using a vacuum hose on them; however, you should never use a vacuum on the filters themselves.
Please refer to the user manual for cleaning instructions on the visor and unit in general. The powercap active is susceptible to damage if certain products are used on it.
How can i best maintain my powercap?
To keep your powercap in the best possible condition you should be replacing your filters as often as necessary (See: How often should I change my filters?) and using the peel-off visor protectors we have available for purchase under the powercap accessories. This will prevent your face shield from getting scratched.
Is the powercap active compatible with beards and people who wear glasses?
The Powercap Active is a powered air, positive pressure respirator. It does not require a tight face seal or fit test making it compatible with people who have beards or wear glasses.
How can i troubleshoot my powercap active?
Your Powercap Active comes with an Airflow Indicator test. Turn your Powercap with the bumpcap lying on a flat surface. Insert the Airflow Indicator, and turn your Powercap on. Then observe the white meter from the side of the Airflow Indicator that the red-to-green scale is on. If when the unit is fully charged the meter reaches the green part of the scale, then your Powercap is working optimally. Please keep in mind that the meter will never reach the full scale of the green area, and it is normal for it to be relatively close to the red scale.
However, if the meter does not reach past the red scale, then it is an indication that either the filters aren’t working properly, the unit is not properly charged, or there is an issue with the unit’s motor. Please do the following:
- Check that your battery is charged- a low battery can result in low air pressure
- Make sure that your filters have been properly cleaned and maintained, replacing them as often as recommended.
- Clogged filters can affect the airflow of your Powercap active.
Once you have take these steps, if you are still experiencing issues then please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

After years of working with wood professionally, I've developed an asthmatic reaction to the dust. I've tried just about everything, but most masks limit the time I can spend due to the heat build-up. I tried what seems to be the Powercap's main competitor but found too many problems for it to be used regularly. I decided to give the Powercap a try and I absolutely love it. It's extremely light and comfortable. Instead of fitting your head with plastic bands, it fits more like a baseball cap with an elastic band in the back.
I work in a confined space and the power cap has proved invaluable in making it more comfortable and safe. My glasses no longer fog up and breathing is so much easier.
I’m a hobbyist knife maker, and I frequently use micarta or G10. The dust from synthetic materials can be pretty gross, and I can’t even tell I’m grinding anything while wearing this. I also tend to be pretty allergic to exotic hardwood dust, but I’m not affected by them at all while wearing the powercap. The battery life is solid. It’s also as comfortable as something like this can be. This cap is more comfortable over extended periods of time than traditional half face respirators are.
Very helpful and professional 😁
Fit is very comfortable and not heavy on the head. I have had a Trend for 2 years and was happy with it but it was a little top heavy. I ordered and it said there would be a delay in shipping but I received the PowerCap in a week. I also ordered a spare face shield and also received it in less than a week. Filters easy to clean with a vacuum.
