A90 Round-Trip Respirator for travelers (Graphic: Business Wire)
ACAMP developed its line of respirator products in April 2020 in response to seeing so many unprotected people shopping and travelling. The A90™ respirator and replacement filters, are available in Canada or US at www.actionbyacamp.com.
A respirator is markedly different from paper or cloth masks as it creates a base-seal around the wearer’s nose and mouth which forces airflow primarily through the front filter. Respirators filter two ways: protecting wearers from inhaling the virus, and preventing wearers from exhaling it to loved ones and co-workers.
The A90™ filters provide 90% particle filtration efficiency, are washable and reusable, and the respirator can be easily adjusted for comfort and fit. The round-trip respirator body is made of thermoplastic and is available in one adult size at this time.
The A90™ respirator’s efficiency was tested against commercially available N90-rated models by the respiratory aerosol mechanics team at the University of Alberta Faculty of Engineering. They rated the ACAMP A90™ filters at similar levels of filtration efficiency as N90 filters.
