01AR-02-APRD - Canister, CS/CN, APR

Description:

CS/CN canisters for Item 01AR-02-APR.   Note that NIOSH approves complete respirator systems, including specific canister(s).  Only canisters identified as part of the approved APR configuration should be purchased.  See the NIOSH NPPTL Certified Equipment List for details.

Grant Notes:

Use of CBRN cartridges in a known CS/CN threat environment has two significant drawbacks:  first, CBRN canisters are more expensive, wasting valuable grant funds; second, the higher breathing resistance of CBRN canisters used with APRs can contribute to user stress and even create a safety issue in a high-effort environment.
