3m N95 mask 8511

3m N95 mask 8511The 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8511 features a proprietary 3M™ Cool Flow™ Valve and helps provide comfortable, reliable respiratory protection. It is ideally suited for hot/dusty work settings that require long periods of wear.

The 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8511, N95 is a disposable particulate respirator designed to help provide reliable respiratory protection against certain non-oil based particles. This respirator can help reduce inhalation exposure to certain airborne biological particles, such as mold, Bacillus Anthracis, and Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, but it cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness, or disease. Soft inner material provides added comfort while the respirator’s cup design makes it spacious and durable. Braided headbands and an adjustable M nose clip help provide a custom and secure seal. The respirator incorporates 3M’s proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media designed for ease of breathing. This respirator is compatible with a variety of protective eyewear and hearing protection. Fitted with a 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve, this respirator is ideally suited for work situations involving heat, humidity, or long periods of wear. The proprietary valve is designed to release hot, humid exhaled breath quickly, helping to prevent an unpleasant build up of heat inside the facepiece – a significant cause of discomfort to respirator wearers. The valve’s efficiency in keeping breathing cool and comfortable has been demonstrated through testing*: the atmosphere inside a respirator with a Cool Flow valve is on average 7.5°F (-13.6°C) cooler than a similar product without the valve. This makes 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve respirators ideal for long periods of wear, especially where conditions are hot, humid or physically demanding. *Testing conducted in a 3M laboratory. Testing protocol, data generation, and conclusions were reviewed and approved by an expert from The University of Minnesota.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some differences between dust masks and 3M N95  mask 8511 respirators?

Although a dust mask and a 3M N95 mask 85111 respirator can often look similar, they actually have different purposes and protection levels. Typically, a dust mask has a single strap and has the same cup shape as a disposable 3M N95 mask 8511 respirator. However, dust masks can also come in the form of a loose fitting rectangular piece of material with an ear loop on each side, or straps to tie behind the head. Additionally, dust masks typically do not have any information printed on them.

The most significant difference between dust masks and 3M N95 mask 8511 respirators is that dust masks aren’t NIOSH-approved disposable filtering facepieces. A common misconception is that dust masks protect the wearer from hazardous exposures, but in reality, they do not protect the wearer at all. Dust masks are designed to be used for one-way protection only – capturing large particles or droplets from the wearer and preventing them from being spread to their environment.

Dust masks should be worn when there is no risk of being exposed to hazardous dusts, gases or vapors. They are ideal for non-hazardous environments and are not considered to be a personal protective device that can provide respiratory protection to the wearer. They are intended to be used in non-regulated situations, such as when mowing grass.

What are some characteristics of 3M N95 mask 8511 NIOSH-approved respirators?

All 3M N95 mask 8511 respirators designed to help protect the wearer from hazardous environments have been tested and certified by NIOSH. This includes air-purifying respirators (disposable, reusable and powered air) plus supplied air respiratory devices (airline or SCBA).

Types of tests conducted by NIOSH include key performance criteria, such as filter efficiency, breathing resistance and if a disposable respirator has an exhalation valve, it’s tested for leakage.

Other characteristics of NIOSH-approved tight fitting particulate respirators, such as a disposable respirator, are as follows:

  1. Designed to fit tightly – they have a seal around the wearer’s face which helps prevent air from leaking into the respirator, thus protecting the worker from particular hazards.
  2. Approval levels are: ​
  • N – no oil present;
  • R – resistant to oil mist; or
  • P – oil mist proof
  1. Have an efficiency of 95%, 99% or 99.9%
  2. Require fit testing
  • Before initial use;
  • Every two years (according to CSA Standard Z94.4: Selection, use and care of respirators);
  • If the wearer fails their user seal check when they don a respirator; or
  • If there is a change to the wearer, such as weight loss or gain, changes in oral structure or piercings that interfere with the facial seal
  1. Requires that a respiratory protection program be developed and implemented.

It includes:

  • Hazard identification and assessment
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Selection of the appropriate respirator
  • Training
  • Health surveillance of respirator users
  • Respirator fit testing
  • Cleaning, inspection, maintenance, and storage of respirators
  • Program evaluation
  • Recordkeeping
