Since 1987 Martech Services Company has been designing, manufacturing, and distributing our Quality Air Breathing Systems products and services throughout the world. We have provided sales and marketing training, and have been the presenter in hundreds of group presentations providing information on the topic of proper supplied air respiratory protection.
It is a fact that isocyanate paints, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, oil vapors, and other toxic gasses are extremely hazardous to your health.
While working in contaminated air spaces, the use of a supplied air respirator is mandated by OSHA [29CFR 1910.134 (d)(1)]. A NIOSH approved supplied air respirator must be provided with Grade “D” breathable air. Martech Services Company’s Quality Air Breathing Systems remove moisture, oil vapors, gaseous hydrocarbons, dirt, rust, scale and other potentially dangerous contaminants, to provide clean, safe compressed breathing quality air. Then the on-board carbon monoxide monitor continuously samples the supplied air for compliance with current OSHA standards. Carbon Monoxide (CO) when compressed, becomes a very toxic air contaminate. It reduces the ability of the red blood cells to carry the necessary oxygen to the body tissues. This potentially dangerous condition is extremely hazardous, when you consider that carbon monoxide is absorbed twice as fast as oxygen. This is true even when the supply of Oxygen is abundant. All breathing air compressors can intake carbon monoxide and other contaminants. Therefore it is imperative that all supplied breathing air be properly monitored.
