The 3M 7093 P100 is a HEPA filter sold by the pair for use on a 3m 6000 respirator and a 3m 7500 respirator. It has a hard plastic case that makes it especially useful when sparks from welding or grinding might damage the 2000 Series filters. Also helpful where some water splash may occur, such as in asbestos abatement. As compared to the 3M 2091 Filter, you may also notice that the filter media is contained within the case. This keeps the trapped lead or asbestos dust particles out of reach. For a wide variety of organic vapors, you can use the 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge that is NIOSH-approved and attaches to the 3M 6000 and 7500 series masks. If you are looking for a reliable filter for protection against toxic dusts, such as 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.

When working inside the home, please take care to isolate the work are from the rest of the house. This might mean using plastic sheeting to contain the dust and fumes until cleaned up with a HEPA rated vacuum. Wearing protective clothing like a Tyvek suit should help with keeping your work clothes out of the laundry where it could deposit lead particles on other family members' clothing. For a suggestion, please take a look at our Lead and Asbestos Removal Kit.

Contractors engaged in residential renovation use either the 3M 7093 or the 3M 2091 HEPA Filters attached to a 3M Half Mask Respirator. Lead dust particles from paint in older homes can become airborne when working on windows or other woodwork in the home. When replacing or disturbing the molding around a door or window, lead in the paint will be released into the air. Protecting your lungs, whether a window installer or a DIY homeowner, should be your first concern.

This also goes for removing paint from wood moldings. Scraping is one method, but many homeowners take on the popular DIY approach of using a heat gun or infrared heat source to lift the paint off. In this case, please also take care with the vapors released. If done outdoors or in a well-ventilated area, the 3M 7093 Filter will be adequate. However, if indoors with less than optimal air movement, we would suggest that you use the 3M 60926 Filter/Cartridge combo. This adds a layer of charcoal to the P100/HEPA Filter. The 60926 is a little harder to breathe through, while also weighing and costing more. That said, ignoring the chemicals being released when you heat that old paint is not a good idea.

Since most homes with molding worth the effort of paint removal are quite old, lead paint is most surely present. Please don't take chances with your health or that of your family. Lead dust and fumes are serious business. You may want to take a look at our 3M Lead Dust Respirator. This combines the 3M 7093 P100 Filter with the 3M 6000 Half Mask Respirator.

When properly fitted, the 3M 7093 P100 Filter may be used in a variety of applications including welding, brazing, torch cutting, metal pouring, soldering, and exposure to lead, asbestos, cadmium, arsenic, and MDA for concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) with half face pieces or 50 times PEL with full face pieces. Full face pieces must be quantitatively fit tested to claim assigned protection factor above 10 in negative pressure mode.

    Do these work for arc welding?

      Yes, the 3M 7093 P100 filter is rated for arc welding. The hard plastic case is resistant to sparks, and the HEPA rating, combine to make a good welding filter. One additional thought is that some folks like to have some ozone protection. The filter that would fit that bill is the 3M 2097. This combines the P100 with a thin layer of charcoal to absorb nuisance organic vapors, such as ozone. The downside is that the polypropylene exterior of the soft ‘pancake’ style filter is susceptible to sparks burning holes in the filter. Okay if you keep the hood down while welding.
      These are the only 3M filters that will fit comfortably under a welding hood.

    I am looking for a respirator when I am in my woodworking shop. In addition to sawdust from woodworking I sometimes work with oil based stains and oils. Please recommend a respirator and filter?

      The 3M 7093 P100 filter is a good choice for the sawdust. When using solvent based stains or oil compounds, an organic vapor cartridge is indicated. The 3M 6001 cartridge should do the trick. If you are going to be spraying, then we will want add a pre-filter, such as the 3M 5P71, along with 501 retainers to hold them on. Just switch back and forth as your tasks change.

    Is this respirator cartridge good for aluminum welding? We are dealing with vapors such as chromium, manganese, nickel, beryllium and amorphous silica fume. We are using the 3M 6001 cartridge right now but it's a little bulky under the hood.

      <p>It would only be beneficial because it would only filter out aluminum particulates in the air. If you're dealing with all those fumes also, the 6001 would be the better option and if you want to go max protect please see this:</p>

    1. Do these work for coal dust situation?
    2. How long we can use this respirator for this condition?

      Yes, this can work for coal dust as coal dust is a particulate and the 7093 will catch it.

      In terms of length, unfortunately there is no visual indicator at the moment. The only indicator to know when to change out is through smell.

      Yes, since it protects from particulate matter, in this case, concrete being broken into fine matter.

    How long will the filter 7093 for lead last and how often should it be changed

      It works like a sponge. And like a sponge, there is a limit to how much it can hold. Once the filters have soaked up all the organic vapors they can, you will start to taste or smell the offending item through your mask. Once you start to smell the things you are trying to block out, it is time to change your filter. Only you can tell if it is becoming difficult to draw a breath, or if smelly vapors are making their way through your mask. Now that you are aware of the capabilities and limitations of these filters, you’ll recognize the signs that it is time for replacement.
