Web Service Life Software
It offers users an easy method for calculating end of service life for 3M™ Respirator Cartridges. This information can be used to establish an appropriate change schedule. The software contains a database of properties for about 200 organic vapor contaminants as well as a database of 3M™ Cartridges. It calculates service life based on workplace conditions such as contaminant concentration, temperature, work rate and atmospheric pressure.

This software is made available to you free of charge, and you can run it on the web.

Online Respirator Selection Software
This software helps make the process of selecting a respirator easier and faster. It can analyze more than 700 different chemicals and provide an audit trail of your respirator decision logic. Knowing the contaminants and their concentrations, the program can then lead you to an appropriate respirator recommendation. The software combines contaminant reference information from a variety of resources. This includes immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH), exposure limit, odor threshold, molecular weight, and more. Just point and click and follow the prompts to help in your selection of an appropriate respirator.

The interactive user's manual is on-line.
