countrywide rep,also jsp Oxford rep say ok??
Just bought the above full face mask to use when handleing methanol. I intend to use axp3 filter which is suitable for organic vapour with a boiling point less than 65C. Anyone else using one of these or similar? I assume I have bought the right thing!

Audi a4 1.9 tdi pd B100 (165K of which 80K Bio) during summer months, hibernia winter months , no problems so far
GL reactor MK2, water pd condensor, water wash then settle for a week before use. KOH. 2 stage using double eductor

To my knowledge, there is no respirator-filter that will protect against Methanol....

--Be worth checking with its Makers, but I dont think that it will be suitable.

Best bet is not to expose yourself in the first place!

If you look here-the methanol vapours question
http://www.protecdirect.co.uk/forum/Board.asp?i=1&o=0
i contacted Protec filters back in 08 and they recommended the one you mention above but then i was told,on here maybe? that they only work once so i agree with HC,best avoided in the first place

i do intend to keep exposure to a minimum - mix outside, vent outside etc. The mask was intended as being a belt and braces job really. The filter seems to cover methanol as it is an organic vapour with a boiling point less that 65c. I will check with the manufacturer. Thnaks

if you have a compressor, and really want to be sure, a 2pack suitable visor would do you.

i (rightly or wrongly) have more fear of the cyanide compounds that 2k paints give off than i do methanol...

just remember though - you need the compressor in a sepperate location!

I was looking at a mask from jsp face mask with twin filters
ABEK 1 combination filter.
The colour code is for the different elements in it?
Waiting for supplier/rep to get back to me to state pro\'s con\'s of it.
Face shield also reccomended .

this question came up on another forum about ozone. the general consensus was as hc says avoid it in the first place. if you have a mask with the wrong filter rather than protecting you it is concentrating the fumes around your face instead. also you can get a false sense of security and might not be as careful as i you might be without a mask. when i worked at a inkjet manufacturing factory we used a lot of MEK. this was in its own area with a fume cupboard and all the right extractors. the one thing they forgot was the canteen was right next to to the exhaust from the MEK area.! so we all got some with our lunch. moral is experts can get it wrong sometimes. if you know it is bad news to breathe in the fumes do it outside on a windy day.

Yes ta for that- It is never worth relying on these things, as avoidance and minimising and or removeing the risk is the best way?

I investigated all this some time ago, only ones I found were 3M AXP3 6098 cartridges which are suitable for use with methanol fumes. Hope that helps
