3M helps food sector workers adapt to change

03 September 2010

3M has introduced a range of powered and supplied air respiratory protective systems which offer the food production industry a comprehensive, modular approach to protection

Diversified technology company 3M has introduced a new range of powered and supplied air respiratory protective systems which offer the food production industry a comprehensive, modular approach to protection.

3M Versaflo Respiratory Protective Systems supply clean, safe air to the workers’ breathing zone and so allow them to work comfortably for long periods.

Boasting streamlined, lightweight, stylish, intuitive design for optimum comfort and ease of use, the new systems offer protection with the flexibility for changing environments, needs and comfort preferences. They are also easily cleanable – a key consideration given the vital importance of hygiene in this sector.

Among the new products being introduced is the 3M Versaflo TR-300 Powered Air Respirator range, which combines optimal comfort and performance with a high level of protection. Its intelligent lithium battery quickly charges, has no memory effect and incorporates a useful charge indicator. It also has an audible and visual electronic alarm that activates in case of low battery or low airflow.

All of the headtops feature adjustable air flow, allowing the user to select whether they wish the air to flow over their face, head or visor. 3M’s soft head tops are also specifically designed to maximise protection against respiratory sensitisers such as flour.

The range of hoods available includes 3M’s S-655 Premium Hood, which was this year recognised in one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world, receiving a red dot award for design from the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen.

Caroline Smith of 3M’s Occupational Health & Environmental Safety group commented: “3M respiratory protection products have always led the field in protection and performance and the new Versaflo Respiratory Protective Systems offer the same benefits alongside unrivalled comfort, styling and ease of use.

“The versatility of the range means many applications can be safely catered for, to meet both user preferences and the many legal requirements facing the food sector, and buyers can have confidence that they are purchasing high-quality products from a proven and trusted manufacturer.”
