The Parat 4920 escape-hood respirator (photo) recently received approval by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for an extended service life of 16 years, provided that the filter is exchanged after eight years. Replacing the filter halfway through the hood’s lifecycle not only prolongs the service longevity, but also greatly reduces the total cost of ownership and longterm maintenance costs. The 4920’s high-performance combination filter protects against a variety of toxic industrial gases, vapors and particles. The multi-gas filter is approved according to NIOSH 42 CFR Part 84 for Respiratory Protective Devices for escape from ammonia, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen sulfide, methylamine, organic vapors, sulfur dioxide and particles. Additionally, the filter is independently tested and provides some levels of protection against formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide and mercury vapors. — Dräger Inc., Houston
