I wear my HEPA H11 nose mask to make a small 750g bags of pellet carbon from 25kg bag. There are dust in the air during packaging. I change the filter every half day. The HEPA filter can block the dust of carbon and keep the nose clean.

What is the wildfire smoke? small particle, toxic! June 09 2023, 0 Comments
The wild fire burned everthing: trees, homes, glass, trucker, cars, animals and more. The visible distance is reduced.
So the wild fire smoke is black with smell and odor, it is toxic. The smoke is flying thousand KM away. The are small particle less them PM2.0 will go into blood. It is harmfull for your body.
I had cough in third days during my 7 days business trip from Canada to China in 2013, the visible distance was less than 2KM in Taiyuan. There was very high air pollution in China. I feel to wear activated carbon face mask is much better than medical face mask. The medical face mask is uneless.
I had dry cough for two months in Toronto after return from China. I had to see my family doctor. I spent C$200 on drug.
Therefore, I started to do research on face mask, and decide to make the nose mask in 2017.

Rocky Air will submit for NIOSH Respiratory Fit Evaluation Challenge April 28 2023, 0 Comments
There are issues with the current state of fit evaluation on filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs), especially for those working outside of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulatory oversight.
- Research and anecdotal information reveal that health workers at doctors’ offices, nursing homes, dental facilities, and home health settings may not conduct initial or annual fit evaluation on a consistent basis due to lack of resources and fit evaluation procedures being impractical to implement widely across an organization
- From a global pandemic, to wildfire smoke, and air pollution in urban areas; now more than ever the general public is wearing tight fitting respirators without the benefit of a fit evaluation to know if the respirator selected is properly providing the intended level of protection.
- Under serious outbreak conditions, current approaches to quantitative and qualitative fit evaluations are constrained and lack the ability to efficiently scale.
We know the face mask has a big prolem of leaking, so we are going to submit materials to this challenge!
It is true! The both surgucal face mask and N95 mask is a uniform mask for every one, it is wrong! Each people has different shape and size, even twin's face are different. The face mask can not perfect fit the face with leaking make millions doctors and nurses are sick by COVID-19 in past 3 years.
I will update this information.
