There is not a defined timeframe to replace Sundstrom mask filters and much depends on contaminant concentration, humidity and breathing capacity of the user.
Pre filters (SR 221) (SKU 1061):
The pre filter is designed to capture large particulates thus prolonging the life of the main filters. To ensure maximum efficient these should be changed every 1-3 days depending on wearer time and contaminant concentration.
Sundstrom SR 510 P3R Particulate Filters (SR510) (SKU 1059):
The SR 510 filters have a manufacturing shelf life of 10 years from manufacture and should be changed when breathing resistance is encountered or for hygiene purposes every 3 months. If the particulate filters are used in association with a power fan unit the user will be alerted when a change is required.
The Sundstrom P3 filters can be combined with all other Sundstrom gas filters to create a combined protection.
Sundstrom Gas Filter:
Gas filters have a finite life and need to be changed when they are saturated and “break through”occurs, indicated when the contaminant can be tasted or smelt. Once opened, filters should be stored in an air tight container such as the Sundstrom Storage box (SKU 1060) to prolong lifespan.
Antiseptic wipes can be used to clean all Full Face Dust Masks & Respirators. Will not dry out even if stored in warm conditions. (SR5226) Each antiseptic wipe is individually foil wrapped & complies with current regulations requiring cleaning of non-disposable respiratory equipment after use. Supplied in packs of 50.
The filter can be used with both the Sundstrom half mask and full face mask.
The SR 315 ABE1 filter can also be combined with the with the P3 particle filter, the SR 510 P3 filter to provide a combined ABE1P3 protection level for spray painting.
Sundstrom SR 316 K1 Gas Filter protects ammonia (K) and certain amine gases and vapours.
Tested and approved according to EN 14387:2004 the SR 316 filter can be combined with the SR 510 P3 filter to provide combined protection against work such as high-pressure washing.

The SR 217 & SR 218 Organic filters provide protection against organic gases & vapours such as solvents with boiling points > 65C. The A2 filter (SR218) (SKU 280) has a higher saturation point (i.e., lasts longer) than the SR217 (A1 Filter).
02. Which filters Provide Protection against Ammonia & certain amines such as ethylene diamine?:
The gas filter SR 316 type K filter provides protection from ammonia gases and certain amines. Suitable for both the Sundstrom full face masks and half mask range. (SKU 317)
03. Which Filters are Required for Spray Painting?
The SR 217 or SR 218 Organic filter should be combined with the SR 510 P3R particulate filter (SKU 1059) for a combined protection. The SR 218 organic filter (SKU 280) provides a higher saturation point than the SR 217.
The SR Spray painting kit
(SKU 282) contains the Sundstrom 100 Half mask, SR 217 filter & the SR510 P3R filter for combined spray paint protection.
04. Which Mask Filters are Required High Pressure Washing?

05. What SR Filters Protects against organic & inorganic gases & vapours & acidic gases?
The SR 315 ABE filter (SKU 309) provides protection against organic, inorganic gases & vapours. The “A” protects against organic vapours such as solvents, The “B” protects against the organic vapours and gases such as chlorine, hydrogen sulphide & hydrogen cyanide. The “E” protects against acid gases & vapours. If aerosol is created the filter should be used in combination with the SR 510 P3R filter to provide combined ABE1P3 protection.
06. Which Sundstrom filters protect against organic & inorganic gases & vapours, ammonia, certain amines & acidic gases?
The SR 297 ABEK1 filter (SKU 279) provides the increased protection to the ABE filter with additional protection with “K” against ammonia & certain amines such as ethylene diamine.
Can be used with the SR 510 P3 R (P3 filter) for a combined protection for chemical spraying etc.
If you require the mask and filter as one unit the Sundstrom SR Chemical spray kit contains the ABEK1 P3 R filters & Sundstrom SR100 half mask.

08. How do you correctly fit Sundstrom Filters?
Check that the correct filter has been selected for the contaminant and check the expiry date.
If using both gas and SR510 particulate P3 filters, click together so that the arrow on the filters point toward the user’s face.
Place the particle filter on top of the other & press hard until you hear the filters click together.
Check the edge of the filter is in the groove of the mounting & fit the filter to the mask with the arrows on the filters pointing toward the user’s face.
09. How do you correctly remove Sundstrom filters?
Remove the filters from the mask and locate the moulded tab on the gas filter.
Place a coin in the space between the lower lip and the small tab on the side of the gas filter & twist until the filters separate.
