THREE NBC FILTERS
The Type 80 filter canister was developed for the Israel Defense Force (IDF) to provide
Protection against all known NBC agents in the form of vapors and aerosols. It is
Supplied as an integral part of all Shalon's personal respiratory protection systems.
The Type 80 is a robust durable canister intended for military and civil defense use. It
is specially designed for comfort and extended use at a minimal physiological load,
having low breathing resistance and low weight. Its design assures optimal performance
complying with all IDF specifications as well as the performance requirements of the
American Army C2 filter canister.
The filter is supplied with a standard NATO thread (40
mm x 1/7") and is thus compatible with almost all military and industrial respirators. The
Type 80 filters are supplied sealed with leak-proof plastic caps, assuring a shelf life
exceeding 15 years.
The production of Type 80 filter canisters is controlled by rigorous quality assurance
tests and procedures. Each filter canister is tested in the production line for air flow
resistance, aerosol penetration, leakage and workmanship, and cannot leave the factory
without passing all these tests.
Shalon's QA laboratories perform gas-life
tests (cyanogens chloride, DMMP, chloropicrin, phosgene, HCN) on charcoal samples
from each drum and on completed canisters sampled from each production lot.
