Interesting! 3m Bought Scott a couple years ago. Didn't know that.Scott filter equipment (for use with any vintage SCBA facepiece)
P100 level filtering (with eye protection)
Scott PAPR (for use with any vintage SCBA facepiece) - Positive pressure in the facepiece. Battery powered uses NATO 40mm filters.
Any SCBA facepiece user should have a quantitative fit test. Best seal is a 2010 or new as much improved seal design (Sureseal). Used serviceable SCBA facepieces are not expensive as many FD have updated to "High Temp" facepieces in the last few years.
Agreed!My concern is why the health care field is so woefully unprepared for a viral outbreak.
There should be warehouses full of masks. They were cheap and widely available. Why is healthcare so unprepared for an obvious needed product?
And, bigger picture, if they don't have $1 masks stocked up, are we really to believe our healthcare system is going to avoid being totally swamped for the million pneumonia patients needing ICU and quarantine for 2 weeks, next month?
I googled "temp required to kill a flu virus".... and I got back 121C (121 °Celsius = 249.8 °Fahrenheit)
I googled "What is the average temperature of a hairdryer?".... and I got back 130 to 150 °Fahrenheit
you should've added the article head line... most people will just gloss over links posted without that..https://www.scmp.com/news/china/sci...vel-twice-far-official-safe-distance-and-stay
Not sure if anyone follows SCMP but this was just on their website
there are links to article's further back in the thread where it's been reported that this virus can live on surfaces up to 9 day's, as far as how long it can remain airborne? here are a few articles on that and also how far a sneeze or cough travel and remain suspended..Im not trying to stir up a fight. But mayor bill de blasio was just on CNN saying the virus dos not hang in the air and dies very quick on surfaces. I was under the impression it lasted days on surfaces. Now Im a bit confused.
