    • Indicator Filter

      Respirators offer workers valuable protection against harmful organic gases and vapours in hazardous environments, but if the filter is not changed in time, contaminants can break through.

      A revolutionary new product from 3M tells workers when they need to replace the filter using a colour changing indicator bar. This visually tracks the course of organic vapours as they travel through the filter, giving wearers plenty of warning that it is coming to the end of its life.

      The 3M™ Organic Gas and Vapour End of Service Life Indicator Filters can be used with any 3M half or full-face respirator across a variety of applications and industries. The indicator bar also gives health and safety managers an easy way to audit filter status for individual users in real time.
