Designed to help combat dust

The Axminster Workshop APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator offers a lightweight and ergonomic solution to working efficiently in dusty environments. This makes it ideal for applications such as woodturning and power woodworking, where impact and dust protection is essential.

Positive pressure powered respirator

The Axminster Workshop APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator features a motor unit positioned above the face. The motor unit blows filtered air down over your face and away from your airways. This gives a cooling, comfortable supply of filtered air at a rate of 160L/min Assigned Protection Factor (APF) 10 TH1P. Positive pressure powered respirators help to ensure that any air movement will be outward. This eliminates the drawbacks encountered with standard negative pressure face respirators such as contaminated air occasionally leaking into the facepiece.

Comfortable, lightweight design

The Axminster Workshop APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator is very comfortable to wear. Size adjustment is a small buckle at the back of the cap which is easily adjusted for a comfortable fit. It is also very light with the low overall weight of 680g, which means it does not restrict your head movements. With the motor at the front and the filter at the back, the respirator is well balanced.

3-in-1 solution

When used with Big Blue Ear Defenders, the Axminster Workshop APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator helps to protect hearing, vision and breathing. The face shield protects against medium energy, high speed particles, dust and liquid droplets while the cap protects against bumps and scrapes. Furthermore, if you wear spectacles, the respirator fits over them without any issues. They also won’t fog or mist up as you breathe meaning you can see clearly at all times.

Work all day

With its 8 hour battery life the Axminster Workshop APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator enables you to work all day without having to worry. For convenience, the LED display lets you know when the battery pack is fully charged (green) or when it requires charging (red). To obtain maximum workable life from the unit, it is advisable to allow the battery to run down fully before recharging. What’s more, the filters are easy to inspect and replace and the bump cap’s outer cover is removable for washing.

This lightweight powered respirator gives good protection in a single unit, fitted with an impact visor this positive pressure powered respirator eliminates the drawbacks encountered with standard negative pressure face masks. The motor unit blows filtered air down over your face at a rate of 160L/min. Fatigue caused by having to suck through a filter is no longer a problem; breathing is normal and comfortable.

The air exiting around the sides and bottom of the mask is at slightly higher pressure than that outside, so forms a most effective seal. Beards are not a problem. If you wear glasses, these will not fog or mist up as you breathe out.

With the motor and filters mounted on the peak of the bump cap and the battery at the rear, the balance of the APF 10 Evolution® unit is excellent. Combined with the low overall weight (680g), it is very comfortable. The Li-Ion battery has a charge indicator so you can check your battery status, a fully charged battery can give you a run time of 8 hours. The filters are easy to inspect and replace. The bump cap’s outer cover is removable for washing. The unit provides respiratory protection to EN12941:1998 + A2:2008 TH1P. The bump cap gives head protection to EN812. The clear visor gives you a wide field of vision along with impact protection to EN.166.B.1.

Supplied with an 8-hour battery, two filters, a flow-rate meter, micro USB charge lead, and complete instructions all within a strong storage box. To extend the life of your respirator we recommend the APF 10 Evolution® Powered Respirator Pre-Filter Pad (Pkt 10) (101850) and the APF 10 Evolution® Powered Respirator Peel Off Visor Overlay (Pkt 10) (101844).

Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) should not be used as the only means of control as it should complement other control measures such as a dust extraction system. Each RPE type and class is categorised by an assigned protection factor (APF). The APF is a number rating that indicates how much protection that RPE is capable of providing. For example, RPE with an APF of 10 will reduce the wearer’s exposure by at least a factor of 10 if used properly, or, to put it another way, the wearer will only breathe in one-tenth or less of the amount of substance present in the air.

Please note: To reduce any possibility of premature motor failure/fan breaking it is imperative that the mask and filters are maintained, replaced and cleaned on a very regular basis.

When choosing respiratory protection, please ensure this is a suitable level of protection for the wood you are working with.
