Operating

The CleanSpace Respirator lights are blinking, switching on and off or the airflow is constant low flow?

The CleanSpace Respirator should be manually re-calibrated. More information on manual re-calibration, refer to the question below: How do I manually re-calibrate the Respirator? Or download the Troubleshooting Guide. If the fault continues, contact your safety equipment supplier or report a fault using one of the troubleshooting forms above.

What do I do if the Respirator does not switch off when I removed it?

The CleanSpace Respirator should be manually re-calibrated. More information on manual re-calibration, refer to the question below: How do I manually re-calibrate the Respirator? Or download the Troubleshooting Guide. If the fault continues, contact your safety equipment supplier or report a fault using one of the troubleshooting forms above.

What do I do if the Respirator does not start?

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 only one green LED is on, the respirator is on standby mode and the battery is charged. When both green and blue LEDs are on, the respirator is in ON mode. If no lights are on, then the Respirator may need to be charged. To charge, connect the Respirator to the charger. Turn the Respirator over and check that one of the green LEDs on the keypad is flashing. If none of the LEDs is flashing, the unit is not charging. ALWAYS start the shift with a fully charged battery (3 green LEDs).

How do I manually re-calibrate the Respirator?

To perform a recalibration on your CleanSpace respirator, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure the battery is fully charged before recalibrating the unit.
  2. Remove mask and filter before recalibrating the unit.
  3. During the recalibration, place the unit on the flat surface.
  4. Make sure both air outlets are not blocked by any objects.
  5. Place a finger over the Power Button and Airflow Button at the same time.
  6. Press and hold both buttons at the SAME TIME.
  7. Press the buttons for approximately 1-3 seconds until both the BLUE & RED lights appeared, and then release the hold.

The lights will stay on for 10 seconds while the respirator recalibrates itself. The recalibration process is now complete when the blue and red lights switch off.

How do I clean the CleanSpace Respirator and masks?

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.

What does it mean if the Respirator beeps during 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.

What happens if the Respirator gets wet?

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 CleanSpace Technology Pty Ltd for further information.

Battery & Charging

How long does the battery last ie operating run time?

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).

How do I re-charge the battery?

To charge, connect the Respirator to the charger. Turn the Respirator over and check that one of the green LEDs on the keypad is flashing. If none of the LEDs is flashing, the unit is not charging. ALWAYS start the shift with a fully charged battery (3 green LEDs).

Can the Internal battery be changed?

The internal battery of the CleanSpace Respirators cannot be changed. Any attempt to open the CleanSpace Respirator casing will void the warranty.

How long before the CleanSpace Respirator automatically turns off (“go into standby mode”) after doffing?

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

What size mask should I choose?

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 2 sizes (small and 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: CleanSpace Respirators are accredited Respiratory Protection Equipment. We recommend that the wearer be clean-shaven when using CleanSpace Respirators.

How long do the filters last?

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).

Can I clean the CleanSpace filters?

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.

How do I know that my filter needs to be changed?

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.

Is there a risk of the filter catching fire from sparks?

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.
