OPERATING
The CleanSpace Respirator should be manually re-calibrated. To perform a manual recalibration hold the “on” button and “Airflow check” button down simultaneously for 3 seconds until the “red” and “blue: lights come on. The system will take 10 seconds to re-calibrate. Check there is a clean filter in place and the system is fully charged before use. If the fault continues, contact your safety equipment supplier or report a fault using the form above.

If the fault continues, contact your safety equipment supplier or report a fault using the form above.
If the Respirator does not start, Check that Respirator is not in the OFF MODE or has no charge by pressing the ON button and putting the Respirator into Standby Mode. If both the blue and green lights are on, the respirator is in Standby Mode and the battery is charged. If no lights are on then the Respirator may need to be charged. To charge, connect the Respirator to the charger. The Respirator is charging when the ON light (blue) is lit and the charging lights (green) are flashing. If the fault continues, contact your safety equipment supplier or report a fault using the form above.

We recommended that you clean your Respirator after every use. The mask, power unit, neck pad and harness need to be cleaned separately. Disassemble the mask, neck pad and harness from the power unit before cleaning. For detailed cleaning instructions see the section on cleaning in this user manual. In brief, cleaning instructions for each component are as follows:
– Cleaning the silicone mask, harness and neck pad/supports – Wash in warm to hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly.
– Cleaning the Respirator – Wipe with dry or slightly damp cloth.
– Check the parts for damage before use.
The CleanSpace Respirators have several in-built alarms: battery, filters and airflow. Please read the instruction manual carefully to understand the operations of the CleanSpace. If the Respirator beeps during use, leave the contaminated area when you have finished your task and remove the respirator and check the lights to determine which alarm has been triggered.
If the Respirator gets wet, dry the casing thoroughly then check to see if water has penetrated the Respirator by removing the filter cover and filter. If water has penetrated the Respirator, discontinue use and contact your safety equipment supplier or PAFtec Australia Pty Ltd for further information.
The CleanSpace2 Respirator can be adjusted for comfort by selecting Level 1, 2 or 3 on the keypad. The Level is selected by pressing the fan button and listening for the number of short beeps emitted. The Comfort Setting changes the response reaction time of the motor, delivering air at a slower more measured rate (Level 1, one beep) or rapidly to match a faster breathing pattern (Level 3, three beeps). You should select the most comfortable setting depending on the type of use.

Note: All three levels can deliver a maximum 200L /min of air.

BATTERY & CHARGING
The CleanSpace respirator will operate up to 8 hours depending on the wearer’s level of exertion. The lithium polymer battery can safety receive short “top up” charges through-out the shift allowing the respirator to be used over a 12 hour shift. ALWAYS start the shift with a fully charged battery (3 green LEDs).
To charge, connect the Respirator to the charger. The Respirator is charging when the ON light (blue) is lit and the charging lights (green) are flashing. ALWAYS start the shift with a fully charged battery (3 green LEDs).
The internal battery of the CleanSpace Respirators cannot be changed. Any attempt to open the CleanSpace Respirator casing will void the warranty.
The Respirator is designed to automatically switch off the motor and go into Standby Mode within ten (10) seconds of not being in use. If the Respirator is in Standby Mode and no breathing is detected for 3 minutes, the Respirator switches into Off Mode. In Off mode you will need to press the Power Button to switch the Respirator back into Standby Mode.
MASKS AND FILTERS
The CleanSpace Respirator has several masks: half and full face masks. The half masks come in 3 sizes (small, Medium and large). The full face mask comes in a medium/large. Choose the mask that ensures a close seal on your face and fits comfortably on the face. The correct CleanSpace mask should be fitted by trained safety personnel before being issued for use. Note: The CleanSpace2 Respirator is an accredited respiratory protection device. We recommend that the wearer be clean shaven when using the CleanSpace2 Respirator.
There is no way to determine filter life for one work place without significant air quality testing. Every working environment is different regarding air bourne contaminants: hazard risk, exposure levels, and concentrations around the wearer. And the wearers breathing efforts – all impact how long a filter will last. The CleanSpace filters have two advantages to assist filter life i) the filter is located at the back away from the direct path of fumes or dust generated in front of the wearer (i.e. welding, grinding) and ii) the CleanSpace respirators are breath responsive, only pulling air through the filters when the wearer needs it (unlike other PAPRs that have a constant peak flow (>100L/min) which pulls air through the filters regardless of whether the wearer needs the air or not).
The CleanSpace filters should NOT be cleaned. Do NOT use compressed air or any other method to clean the CleanSpace filters. Cleaning the filters can damage the filters and risk the protection efficiency of the Respirator.
For particulate filters, the CleanSpace Respirators have a filter alarm. The alarm (audible and visual) detects when the particulate filters are blocked and will beep during use and the filter light (RED) will come on. For gas filters, there is no way to detect when the gas filters activated carbon is exhausted. The wearer should be aware of work place policies on the use of Respirators with gas or combination filters, if the wearer detects a noticeable taste or smell then they should immediately leave the contaminated area and change the filters.
The CleanSpace filters are constructed from flame retardant materials. Testing has shown that the filters will not ignite when exposed to sparks or open flame.
