Draeger Announces New Multi-Gas Plus Cartridge
Date:5/28/2009

PITTSBURGH, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Draeger is pleased to announce the introduction of the new Multi-Gas Plus cartridge to fit our X-plore 3300/3500/5500 twin filter masks. These cartridges are unique because they do not carry the "escape only" designation for H2S protection, and can be used to work in environments up to 100ppm (IDLH level), providing proper change out schedules and OSHA guidelines are followed (service life graphs are available). This cartridge utilizes the same low-profile, swept-back design and two-point bayonet connection as the other X-plore cartridges.

Draeger's exclusive two-point bayonet connectors are standard on all dual type filters and cartridges. The user simply lines up the indicators, turns the filters one quarter turn in the direction of the arrows and the combination is ready for use. The low profile, swept back design provides an unobstructed field of vision while staying close to the user's face so they do not get in the way.

There are two versions available which protect from toxic gases such as Organic Vapors, Chlorine, Chlorine Dioxide, Hydrogen Chloride, Hydrogen Fluoride, Sulfur Dioxide, Formaldehyde, Ammonia, Methylamine and Hydrogen Sulfide.

For individuals who currently use supplied air for low levels of H2S, use of these cartridges provides an opportunity for the user to be free of any connections to a positive pressure air flow. The Multi-GasPlus cartridges can also improve cost effectiveness by requiring only one pair of multi-gas cartridges rather than other more expensive means of protection during operations.
