Filters for Elipse & Integra Respirators
Options for P100, OV, OV/AG, Multi-Gas, and Nuisance Odor Protection
Dust filters are able to retain airborne particulates and are offered in various constructions, which enhance the filters characteristics with use of various types of filter material with different thickness, porosity and surfaces, to protect against particulates, gases and nuisance odors. Activated carbon cartridge filters contain specific activated carbon, which retain certain gases and vapors by adsorption, while combined filters can remove both gases, vapors and particulates.
There are various types of particulate dust filters which have different filtration efficiency. Depending on which you choose, you can have the most suitable means of protection again environmental pollution conditions. The airborne particles are retained by the filter by means of mechanical and/or electrostatic action.
In the case of gas filters, substances are retained by the chemical -physical action of the activated carbon contained in the filter, able to adsorb and neutralize contaminants. It is assumed that the efficiency of gas and vapor interception on adsorbent material is 100%, at least until the completion of the capacity of the filter material. For gas filters, we refer to ; time to completion or, rather, the period beyond which the filter is saturated and the pollutant begins to pass through the filter. This ‘breakthrough’ time depends on the quantity and quality of the adsorbent material used, on the active area of the cartridge, on its filtration capacity against the pollutant and on environmental concentrations and conditions.
Patented HESPA™ P100 Filters
The Encapsulation is a patented technology owned by the GVS Group that enable to produce a compact and light filter capturing the pleated media with a soft TPE ring. High Efficiency Synthetic Particulate Air-filter is a technology that enables the patented "encapsulation" production process. The 7 layers combined filter media is using exclusively mechanical filtration technology, giving the filter guarantee that the efficiency stay above 99,97% during the usage. Those filters are also water-repellent thanks to the nature of those media.
Protection Against Nano Particulates
GVS Elipse P100 particulate filters protect against nano particulates, and have been tested down to 40 nanometers (0.04 microns) still giving an efficiency of >99.97%.
Effective against dust and fumes containing substances such as micro-organisms, marble, gypsum, titanium oxide, soapstone, rock wool, wood, detergents, textile fibers, spices, salt, feed, etc.
Protects against dust that can cause lung disease. In particular, protects against coal, silica, cotton, iron ore, graphite, kaolin, zinc, aluminum dusts. Protects against harmful dusts such as asbestos, bauxite, coal, silica, iron, and against toxic dusts such as manganese, lead and chromium.
Pleated, interchangeable P100 filters have a minimum efficiency of 99,97% at 0,3 microns and a breathing resistance of 3 mbar at a flow rate of 47,5 l/min for each filter.
The gas cartridges contain specific activated carbon granules with optimized characteristics such as pore size, grain size, activity level, density etc, which provide a maximum adsorption performance and a really low breathing resistance. The respirator is supplied with two specific activated carbon filtering elements for the protection against a range of gases, vapors, dust and mists. Once these are finished, they can be replaced with replacement filters. These offer versatile protection against dust and mists up to 50 TLV.

Type of filter / class
HESPA™ (High Efficiency Synthetic Particulate Air Filter) + P100 R D > 99.97% (minimum efficiency). Available with activated carbon pad filter, P100 Nuisance Odor (R D), for removal of small concentration of organic vapors/odors and a higher comfort.
Full traceability of each batch against each material used.
On line testing
100% of filters are efficiency tested with NaCl to ensure the highest performance and quality.
5 years for P100 filters, 3 years for all other filters.
Filters: Mechanical type HESPA™ Synthetic media with TPE over molded / encapsulated. Filters are water repellant and re-usable.
Filters can be used until fully clogged and / or the wearer feels uncomfortable or until the activated carbon is exhausted and the wearer can smell / taste the contaminant. The lifetime will depend on the concentration in the workplace and the activity level. The filtration level will stay constant all along the usage. All masks are supplied with an aluminum zip foil bag for storage to maximize the life expectancy of the activated carbon. The P100 element is designed for a longer lifetime with up to 5 times the amount of material usually put in other ranges.
