Apollo Low Pressure (LP) NIOSH-Approved, Type-CE Respirator Systems and Accessories


LP respirator systems for intermittent abrasive blasting or for blasting in moderate temperatures when breathing air is supplied by an ambient air pump.

Abrasive blasting is difficult and dangerous. The last thing you or your crew needs on their minds is worry about their safety. Apollo LP Respirators and accessories meet OSHA safety requirements for protection from inhalation hazards and protection from rebounding abrasive. Your crew will literally breathe easier with a Clemco Constant Flow Connector Air-Flow Device or a CMS-4 In-Helmet CO Monitor-Alarm. Provide your crew with the comfort, convenience, and safety they need to stay focused and remain productive—with Clemco’s Apollo LP Respirator Systems and accessories.

  • 180° Wide View Window – Industry’s largest view window for maximum visibility.
  • Quick-Change, Three-Lens Window System – Keeps Out Dust and Media:
    • Sturdy Inner Lens that is held in place by a molded gasket seals out dust and media.
    • Middle Lens further seals out dust and media while providing a layer of protection over the inner lens.
    • Up to Three Perforated, Tear-Away Outer Lenses protect the middle lens from pitting.

Safety and Certifications

  • NIOSH-approved, Type-CE supplied-air respirator ensures your operators have safe breathing air and are compliant with safety regulations.
  • OSHA assigned protection factor of 1000 x permissible exposure limit (PEL) for hazardous substances.
  • ANSI Z89.1-2003 Type 1, Class G Protective Hard Hat Rating
  • ANSI Z87.1-1989 Face and Eye Protection
  • ANSI Z 3.19: Noise Reduction Rating (NRR): NRR 9 with DLX Comfort-Fit Suspension / NRR 8 with Web Suspension.

Ambient Air Pumps

Clemco Ambient Air Pumps are a cost-effective option when a high-pressure air compressor is unavailable for supplying breathing air or when operators are wearing low-pressure respirator systems.

  • Clemco Ambient Air Pumps convey breathing air from a clean-air environment outside the work area into Apollo 600 or 20 LP Respirators.
  • The units are portable and oil-free.
  • They pump Grade D breathing air without introducing CO, oil, or other contaminants into the air supply.
  • Calipso – Supplies Air for One Operator
    • Enclosed, fan-cooled electric motor.
    • For LP respirators that operate at 8 CFM up to 10 psi.
    • Technical Data Sheet
    CAP-4 – Supplies Air for One to Four Operators
    • For LP respirators that operate at 9 CFM up to 10 psi.
    • Can also supply breathing air for up to six operators wearing full face masks.
    • Powered by compressed air; works where no electric power is available.
    • Protective cage shields critical components from damage.
    • Optional integral, two-wheel cart with an extendable handle is available.

    Air-Flow Device: Constant Flow Connector (CFC)

    Clemco’s Constant Flow Connector allows operators to focus on the work at hand rather than worrying if enough breathing air is reaching their respirators, which helps them remain productive and safe:

  • No Adjustments Needed – Ensures that a fixed volume of breathing air reaches operators without adjustments, which makes for one less variable for operators to monitor, simplifying their job.
  • Maximum Flow – Supplies breathing air at maximum flow rate.

  • Carbon Monoxide Monitor-Alarm: CMS-4 In-Helmet Monitor

    Breathing air contaminated with carbon monoxide can cause serious, even fatal, injuries. Carbon monoxide has no odor, color, or taste—so by the time operators are aware of its presence, it may be too late. Protect your crew’s safety and give them peace of mind so that they can focus undistracted on their work with Clemco’s CMS-4 In-Helmet CO Monitor-Alarm:

  • One-of-a-Kind, In-Helmet Design – Unique, compact design quickly attaches inside the helmet of an Apollo 600 or 20 LP Respirator.
  • Operators Self-Monitor – In-helmet placement allows an operator to self-monitor his/her CO exposure.
  • Three Alarms – Unit triggers audible, visual, and vibratory alarms.
  • 10 ppm or 5 ppm Threshold – Unit’s threshold can be reset from 10 ppm to 5 ppm.

    Abrasive blasting (formerly known as sandblasting) also is called grit blasting, bead blasting, media blasting, soda blasting, dry blasting, sponge blasting, shot blasting, and shot peening. However, sand should never be used when abrasive blasting because breathing abrasive containing crystalline (free) silica can lead to serious or fatal lung disease.
