The new P2-02 filter offers key improvements compared to TR2
Approved for use against oil-based contaminants
The CE-Certified P2-02
filter is effective and approved for use against both solid (non-oil)
particulates as well as oil-based particulates in accordance with the requirements of the EN143:2021 standard. The TR2 Filter (Gen1) was developed to
address solid (non-oil) particulates.
Improved filtration efficiency
The CE-Certified P2-02 filter offers improved filtration efficiency compared to the TR2 Filter (Gen1).
The TR2 Filter (Gen1) achieves a 97% efficiency against solid (non-oil) particulates.
The CE-Certified P2-02 filter features a new bonding and pleat design and tests ≥99% filtration efficiency for the sodium chloride filtration challenge for both single and multiple shift use. The P2-02 also has a >97% efficiency for the paraffin oil test and a >95% efficiency when retested after 24 hrs following the initial oil penetration challenge. As a result of the high-performance levels against these challenges, the P2-02 is certified for multiple shift use (i.e. not restricted to single-use like other products in market).
EN143:2021 has three
classifications which describe the minimum filtration efficiencies required:
- P1 is >80%
- P2 is >94%
- P3 is >99.95%
Based on these thresholds,
the P2-02 was granted P2 classification despite performing well above the 94%
15% Increased Breathability
The P2-02 filter offers an
approximately 15% improved (lower) inhalation resistance compared to the original TR2 filter. The original TR2 filter has an average inhalation
resistance of 1.65 hPa (16.8 mmH2O) @ 85 LPM, while the P2-02 has an average inhalation resistance of 1.4 hPa (14.3 mmH2O) @ 95 LPM.
