you need to use two large ziploc bags

 

one for the respirator and one for the cartridges.

 

store them separately so the cartridges dont contaminate the inside of your respirator

 

i need to wear one at work and this is the standard procedure.

how detrimental to your health is it if you dont do this & just throw it in a single bag..?

 

does the filtered bullshit actually seep out in a way? what if you keep it in one bag, but clean out the inside of the respirator each time..?

 

if you could elaborate..

In a perfect world you should break it down and clean it (soap and water) after every 40ish hours of use. The cartridges should be tossed after 8. The mask portion should be replaced yearly because the rubber gets brittle and starts cracking. I understand shit is expensive but in the long run what is a couple bucks compared to cancer?

Think about it, your cartridges absorb all those VOC's, then off-gas them in to their surroundings. If it's in an air tight bag with your mask then gets saturated with those chemicals. As for the cartridge change out schedule, I'm working off the standard that my old job used, and granted it does error on the side of caution. I was painting airplanes, and surrounded by organic vapors (paint fumes, atomized solvents and polyisocyanates). So you could probably squeeze 16 to 20 hours out of them with spray paint, unless you are painting in an enclosed space where the PPM is exponentially higher due to saturation.
