The Avon CBRNCF50 canister meets the NIOSH CBRN APR standard at the 15-minute classification level (CAP 1), the EUROPEAN STANDARD, EN 14387 (A2B2E2K1P3), and the relevant criteria specified in the NATO AEP-73 for protection against chemical and biological warfare agents in aerosol and gas/vapor form.
It provides effective protection against all the gaseous agents specified in the NIOSH CBRN standard, as well as excellent performance against a wider range of both chemical warfare agents and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). A particulate filter element exceeding the requirements of NIOSH 42 CFR Part 84 P100 and EN 14387 (P3) is incorporated, ensuring effective performance against all dusts, mists, fumes, biological agents (bacteria, virus, fungal spores, etc.), including radioactive dusts. When combined with an appropriate chemical protective mask, the CBRNCF50 filter canister protects the face, eyes, and gastrointestinal tract of the wearer against known chemical and biological agents in aerosol, liquid, and vapor form including:
A unique standard humidity indicator is located on the top of the CBRNCF50 filter and visually displays performance degradation due to moisture uptake over time. The indicator turns white to blue signaling that the unit pack was compromised and the filter must be discarded.
