In Detail

Evolution 1 Year Guarantee

This positive pressure powered respirator eliminates the drawbacks encountered with standard negative pressure face masks. The motor unit blows filtered air down over your face at a rate of 160L/min. Fatigue caused by having to suck through a filter is no longer a problem; breathing is normal and comfortable. The air exiting around the sides and bottom of the mask is at slightly higher pressure than that outside, so forms a most effective seal. Beards are not a problem. If you wear glasses, these will not fog or mist up as you breathe out. With the motor and filters mounted on the peak of the bump cap and the battery at the rear, the balance of the APF 10 Evolution unit is excellent. Combined with the low overall weight (680g), it is very comfortable. The Li-Ion batteries give you a run time of 8 hours on a full charge. The filters are easy to inspect and replace. The bump cap’s outer cover is removable for washing. The unit provides FFP2 respiratory protection to EN12941:1988 TH1P. The bump cap gives head protection to EN812. The clear visor gives you a wide field of vision along with impact protection to EN.166.B.1. Supplied with an 8-hour battery, plus charger, two filters, a flow-rate meter and complete instructions all within a strong storage box. You only get one pair of lungs.

You would not know you had it on except that you are not breathing in the dust

The order was delivered very promptly. It was easy to assemble and is comfortable to wear. It provides a dust free atmospher for your face making any dusty job much more comfortable.

APF10 vs 10-year old Trend Airshield

As a hobby woodturner, I bought the APF10 because I expected it to be far superior to my 10-year old Trend Airshield as regards weight, noise and comfort.

1. Weight. My Airshield weighs 772 grams with one battery (4 hours capacity), and 861 grams with both batteries (8 hours capacity). The APF10 weighs 668 grams with its 8-hour capacity battery fitted. So the APF10 is noticeably lighter than the Airshield.
2. Noise. The APF10 does not sound perceptibly quieter than the Airshield. A decibel app on my smart phone measured similar noise levels at low 60s dB. An accurate noise level meter would be needed to determine if there is any significant difference. The noise level is more than that of an air conditioner (60 dB) but not as much as a vacuum cleaner (70 dB).
3. Comfort. The AFP10 is better balanced and more comfortable to wear that the Airshield. I can envisage wearing the AFP10 all the time while woodturning, rather that wearing the Airshield only for particularly dusty operations like sanding.

In conclusion, I am pleased that the APF10 is lighter and more comfortable than my Airshield, but disappointed that the motor/fan is just as noisy given all the improvements that have taken place over the last 10 years in small electric motor technology.

Good Piece of Kit

Much imporoved on its predecessor. Comfortable to wear, light weight and only minor reduction in field of view. Convenient to use due to the battery pack and on/off switch located on and to the rear of the helmet. (no trailing wires, weighty battery and hard to find power switch!) Well pleased with the purchase despite the not inconsideable price.

An advance on non-powered masks.

From first experience - very comfortable and effective. There is a temptation to turn power off as soon as a dusty operation is complete but, inevitably, this rapidly produces mist-up. Care will be needed to avoid scratching of the visor.
