First post…haven’t found an answer on the Internet or this forum.
How do you remove and store the filtered Respirator Mask so that there are no dust particles on the inside of the mask when you put it back on the next time you want to use it?
If you take it off inside the shop, small, invisible dust particles floating in the air can adhear to the inside of the mask. There are dust particles adhering to the outside of the mask as it is. If I store the mask, with air ciculating, dust will creep into the inside of the mask. If I store the mask in a plastic bag, there are still dust particles on the outside of the mask that will end up circulating – some of them – and end up on the inside of the mask, ready to be breathed in.
It’s the same question with clothing…If I wear a plastic covering over my clothes, where do I take that off and how do I ensure that no dust that was attached to the outside of this plastic suit flakes off and adheres to the iside of the plastic suit / covering, thereby transferring to my clothing anyway….or, how do I store the plastic suit so that no dust is on the inside when put it back on for the next time I use it?
The only solution I can think of is standing in a positive air pressure chamber that will suck all of the air out of the chamber in a vacuum.
Have you thought of this safety issues before? And, if so, what was the solution you came up with?
