Avon CTCF50 - RIOT AGENT FILTER
■ Conformal shape providing low profile
■ Unique Humidity Indicator
■ Protection against CS, CN and OC riot agents
The Avon CTCF50 Filter is a low profile combination filter
containing a pleated high-efficiency filter element for removal
of aerosols, particulate matter, smoke, fumes and a carbon bed
for the removal of vapors that may be released from trapped
particles. It is specifically designed for removal of riot control
agents and tear gases including CS, CN and OC pepper spray.
The canister body is made of a modified polyphenylene ether-polystyrene blend (PPE&PS), which is a high quality engineering construction polymer. It provides a very robust product which is extremely durable against shock and impact in operational use. The canister body is black in color and has a matte finish to reduce reflection. The high efficiency filter element is made of PTFE, PET/PE. The CTCF50 is entirely non-ferrous and non-magnetic.
The Avon CTCF50 meets the relevant criteria specified by
NIOSH 42CFR84 for effectiveness in the removal of CS/CN
agents in aerosol and vapor form.
The filtering capacity for particles of 0.3 micron diameter is
greater than 99.97%. Provides 24 hours of protection from
continuous exposure to CS, CN, and OC. A particulate filter
element exceeding the requirements of NIOSH 42CFR84 P100
and EN 14387 (P3), level is incorporated, ensuring effective
performance against dusts, mists, fumes, and biological agents
(bacteria, virus, fungal spores etc), and radioactive dusts.
When stored in its original packaging the filter canister
retains its operational effectiveness and efficiency with
no degradation to its performance under the following
environmental storage conditions:
Operational Temperature -32°C to 71°C
The filters have been exposed to high and low ambient storage
temperatures without harmful effects.
Humidity range 5% to 100% RH
The filters have been tested following storage in high humidity
environments and have been found to be effective.
The filter will retain its effectiveness in heavy rainfall conditions
and it is not prone to water ingress.
The filter will not deteriorate with exposure to salt breezes
for 24 hours.
Sand and Dust
The filter will not deteriorate when exposed to 24 hours
of wind driven sand and dust conditions.
Recommended Storage and Shelf Life
The predicted shelf life of the filter canister
(sealed and packaged) is 5.5 years when stored at 20 ± 10°C,
The CTCF50 is hermetically sealed.
