Application and non-application scenarios for n95 masks
N95 masks are designed to filter out particulate matter such as dust, smoke, and other small particles, but they are not designed to protect against gases or vapors. Poisonous gases can easily penetrate through the filters of an N95 mask and be inhaled, which can be harmful or even fatal.
How to choose another masks for specific area.
To protect against high-risk elements, such as poisonous gases, chemical smoke, you would need a respirator that is specifically designed to filter out the particular gas or vapor you are dealing with. Respirators designed for this purpose use replaceable cartridges or canisters that contain activated carbon or other materials that can absorb the gases or vapors.
It’s important to note that selecting the appropriate respiratory protection depends on the specific hazardous material that is present, the concentration of the material, and the duration of exposure. Therefore, it’s important to seek guidance from trained professionals when selecting respiratory protection for hazardous environments.
