3M Filter Organic Vapour Cartridge 6051 A1 – Pair
The 3M Filter 6051 Organic Vapour A1 provides protection against Organic Vapours. The 3M 6051 filters provide A1 protection ideal for applications including mixing paint thinners or glue, where organic vapours are present.
Vapour is the gaseous form of a substance which is solid or liquid at room temperature.
3M makes organic vapour respirator cartridges to help reduce user exposure to many different organic vapours. Organic vapours are compounds primarily derived from fossil fuels such as oil or coal.
For example, solvents or petrol release organic vapours.
33M Filter Organic Vapour Cartridge 6051 A1 Features:

* Low breathing resistance
* Well balanced when fitted to a mask
* Provides excellent field of vision as a result of the unique trapezoidal shape
* Bayonet fitting system ensures precise and secure locking
* Standards/Approvals: Complies with AS/NZS 1716:2012
Respirator cartridges are filled with a material called activated carbon. Activated carbon is typically made from coal or renewable resources like wood or coconut shells. It is “activated” by heating the material in nitrogen or steam at approximate temperatures of 800 – 900°C.
The resulting material has a significant number of micropores that help adsorb various organic vapours. These micropores can be measured and optimised for specific product needs and performance.
3M Filter Organic Vapour Cartridge 6051 A1 Protection Factors:
Note that any filtering respirator should not be used for protection at airborne concentrations of contaminants above the relevant Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) levels.
This cartridge/filter, when used for protection against the contaminants as specified, is capable of providing the following protection levels:
– With a 3M 6000/7500 Series Half Face Respirator: for airborne concentrations up to 10 times the Workplace Exposure Standard (WES) or 1000 ppm, whichever is the lower
– With a 3M 6000/7800 Series Full Face Respirator: 50 x WES or 1000 ppm, whichever is the lower
3M Bayonet Connection System ensures precise and secure locking
Low profile and well balanced twin filter design
Suitable for use with 3M™ 6000/7500 Series Half Face Respirators and 3M™ 6000/7000 Series Full Face Respirators
Common Applications/Hazards: For protection when cleaning with or using organic solvents e.g. toluene, xylene and MEK. Also degreasing, mixing, using paint thinner, lacquers and glues.
