Dust in the lungs can cause physical stress, fatigue, and shortness of breath. In the long term, it can cause congestion, coughing or wheezing, sensitivity to dust and infections such as colds, bronchitis and pneumonia. 

Exposure to dust over time can cause diseases such as farmer's lung, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and other irreversible diseases that cannot be cured. You can now easily find the best system for explosion isolation via

To avoid respiratory problems, farmers must wear a respirator when working in dusty conditions. Respirators can be an excellent choice for those who are already blocked or who have difficulty breathing, who are usually concerned about dust, or who are concerned about the amount of foreign particles entering their bodies.

There are several factors to consider when selecting a new respirator or evaluating an existing respirator.

(1) All respiratory protective equipment used in agricultural activities must be approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

(2) Always use the appropriate respirator for the task. Many problems arise from improper use of breathing apparatus. Powder masks, for example, do not reduce chemical fumes. Chemically approved respirators must not filter dust. Specific pollutants approved by respiratory protective devices are listed on the cartridge filter or in the instructions for use of the respiratory protective device.

(3) Choose a respirator of the appropriate rating. As part of the test, the respirator is assigned a "protection factor" or PF score that indicates how well it can do its job. Always use a respirator with a PF of 10 or higher for agricultural activities.
