The 3M 60921 OV/P100 (HEPA) cartridge combines a charcoal-filled organic vapor cartridge (such as 3m 6001) with a P100 filter. It is intended for use in a variety of applications including petrochemical, construction, transportation and chemical manufacturing. When properly fitted, the cartridge helps provide respiratory protection from certain organic vapors and particulates at concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) with half facepieces, or 50 times PEL with full facepieces. If you are looking for an ideal filter for protection against toxic dusts, lead, and asbestos, and for mold cleanup and remediation, use the 3m 2097 filters that fit on the 3M 6000/3M 7500 series half masks, and the 3M 6000 full face respirators.

Full facepieces must be quantitatively fit-tested to claim the assigned protection factor above 10 in negative pressure mode.

Do not use it for sandblasting or in environments that are immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH).

Sold in a bag of 1 pair.

    Does this cartridge absorb bad smells as well, like the 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge?

      Yes. This combo filter has activated charcoal inside the cartridge to absorb organic vapors like paint thinner or fuel vapors, along with a range of other bad smells. On the outside of the cartridge (under the pink cover) it has a top-of-the-line P-100 filter to keep out particles and dust down to .3 microns.

    I use your 3M 60921 half face respirator when I am cleaning our industrial wave solder machine. On average, I do wave pot cleaning about two to five times a day. The wave machine uses lead solder material (Sn63/Pb37 Bar Solder). So, I want to know how long time I have to replace these cartridges?

      Without more information about the solder machine, the type and quantity of the hazards, and the products you are using to clean the instrument, it’s difficult for us to be sure this is the right cartridge for you. But we can explain how to tell if your cartridge/filter needs to be replaced. The 60921 cartridge has two components– the particulate filter on the outside for airborne debris, and the activated charcoal to absorb the toxic smell in the cartridge. <br>
      If the filter fills up, it will be difficult to pull a breath through. This type of filter start to get clogged, but won’t let any particles through to your lungs, which is important. As the filter gets full, it becomes more and more difficult to suck in a breath. When that happens, it’s time to replace the cartridges.<br>
      The second phase is the activated charcoal. It will absorb as much of the organic vapor and bad odors as it can, but once it’s full, those vapors will start to make their way past. If you begin to smell the air you’re trying to keep out, you’ll know the cartridge is full and it’s time to replace them. <br>
      Because you use these filters several times a day, it’s especially important to keep them protected when not in use. Store them in a zip-lock plastic bag to keep the cartridges from any ambient vapors around your facility.

    Does this filter or any filter protect against H2S?

    1 answer
    1. Justin

      2014-05-12 20:38:21

      Unfortunately, the answer is no. There is no filter or cartridge that we know of which will protect against hydrogen sulfide. Your only real option, other than ventilation, is an <a href="https://www.pksafety.com/allegro-1-worker-half-mask.html">airline respirator</a> which supplies air from a remote, clean air environment.

    Does this filter work for mold as well or not?

      The 3M 60921 contains a combination of activated charcoal and a P100 rated filter. This should work fine for mold. We generally prefer the 3M 60926 for its multi-gas capable cartridge. The particular way that the charcoal is treated allows it to absorb additional gases and vapors.
      For instance, many folks working around mold will also use chlorine bleach. While household strength bleach is not terribly toxic, the acid gases do tend to irritate. The 60926 will absorb these acid gases.
      Please also wear eye protection, such as tight fitting goggles, or even a full face respirator. The mold spores are always looking for a warm moist home, and your eyes fit the bill! In addition, chlorine, as mentioned above, will attack (however gently) mucous membranes.

    I have 3M 6000 and need to know which cartridge is for isocyanates

      2014-11-12 19:50:34

      Unfortunately, 3M doesn’t make a filter specifically for isocyanates and isocyanates won’t be absorbed through carbon-lined filters. Your best bet would be to purchase a supplied airs system.

    Is this the filter for the 3M Half-Face Respirator, 7500 Series? I'm a jeweler and want protection when soldering, sanding and polishing.

      2015-03-09 23:33:48

      Yes, the 3M 60921 cartridge will fit on the 3M 7500 half mask respirator. It will also fit all of the 3M 6000 series full face and half mask respirators.

    Will this type of cartdrige to protect me while cutting and sanding electronic PCB with a rotary tool. These boards I believe are basically made of various types of fiberglass.

      This isn't an ideal cartridge for fiberglass. Please use the 3M 2097.

    Can the P100 prefilter be replaced?
    Can it be used without the prefilter?

      This cartridge encompasses the P100 filter, so it can not be replaced. If you're looking to replace the filter/cartridge, we would suggest buying these items separately.

      The P100 filter: https://www.pksafety.com/3m-5n11-prefilter.html

      This adapter holds the P100 onto the cartridge:


      and then a cartridge of your choosing.

    i have a full face mask i use while cutting and grinding steel with abrasive wheels, the air gets cloudy with metal and abrasive dust would this be the best filter for this?

    if i was to be grinding or welding on galvanized steel would it also protect from those fumes or is that a separate filter

      The 3M 60926 or 60921 that you've asked a question about would work for your scenario.
