Inhalation Port Adapter (AIP-GEN2-3MH)
Attention: Due to limited availability of the antimicrobial material, all affected items are currently blue instead of the usual red.
The Adapter-Inhalation Port, Gen 2 3MH, is a bayonet mount adapter for the 3M 6000 series half face respirators. The goal of the AIP was to adapt North/Honeywell cartridges to the 3M bayonet mount respirators while maintaining a low profile. The AIP does fit on the 3M 7000 series masks as well, but the fit may be more tight than necessary due to how the 7000 series masks use the silicone body as a face seal.
The AIP-GEN2-3MH is the second revision of our current design and features:
• Knurled outer perimeter to aid in installation and removal, though it may still be difficult to fit your fingers between the mask and the cartridge, this is a compromise to maintain a low profile
• Low profile design
• O-ring seal between the cartridge and the adapter (dash 022 o-ring installed)
• 3D Printed from specialized antimicrobial/antibacterial plastic material, and alcohol washed and bagged
The AIP relies on the o-ring seal between the cartridge and the adapter body. This is a delicate balance to lock in a good seal while not placing unnecessary stress on the printed body. We have been having good success with the included dash 022 nitrile o-rings and North 7580P100 cartridges.
