Q. How long can I use a CC20 hood?

Bullard CC20 Series respirators have a limited service life. Therefore, a regular inspection and replacement program must be conducted. Bullard CC20 Series respirators and all component parts and assemblies should be inspected for damage or excessive wear before and after each use to ensure proper function. Immediately remove the respirator from service and replace parts or assemblies that show any sign of failure or excessive wear that might reduce the degree of protection originally provided.  

Inspection before and after every use, inspect the hood material for rips, tears, or damage from excessive wear that might reduce the degree of protection originally provided. The respirator’s plastic lens should be inspected for cracks, scratches or any other signs of damage. If damage is detected, remove the hood from service and discard immediately.
