The Apollo 600 CE was specially developed and approved for blasting (MSHA - NIOSH).
The helmet has an assigned protection factor of 2000 inconsideration of BS EN14594.
The following Warnings and Limitations have to be followed:

The main components for the minimal version from a respirator are as follows:
               · Helmet with cape attachment strap, suspension and adapted cape
               · Breathing air-hose (length: approx. 1000mm)
               · Breathing air-supply hose (length: 10m) with quick-fitting pipe union (female)
               · Air control valve

Before using your Apollo 600 helmet

1. Adjust Helmet Suspension

- Adjust the helmet suspension by turning the knob to suit your head size and adjust chin strap to correct length.

2. Check that the lens system is in place

- Inner lens
- Intermediate Lens
- Perforated outer lens
The respirator assembly must never be used without the fixed inner lens, intermediate and the outer lens.

3. Air supply Hose

- Use the quick release coupling to attach the air supply hose to the air control valve.
- Check air supply hoses and connections for tightness and leaks.

4. Air Supply

- Start compressor
- Open service valve or pressurize the air supply line.

5. Check Air Pressure

Pressure must be set with the connected respirator.

6. Check Equipment

Check all safety and breathing equipment used in conjunction with the respirator, as recommended by the manufacturer.

7. Put the respirator on

- Put the respirator on (keep it as upright as possible to prevent abrasive from falling inside.)
- Position the knit cuff on the inner collar so that it fits comfortably. The collar assists in the prevention of dust entering the helmet. Do not allow shirt collars or other matter to interfere with the fit the cuff provides around the user’s neck.
- Pull the cape down to fully extend it, and connect the straps on each side under the arms.
- Put the belt and control valve on over the cape, buckle the belt around the waist and tighten it using the adjusting slide.


Pull out suspension assembly carefully from the six adaptors.
The clips are supposed to fix the suspension in the helmet crown. The curved side has to face the centre of the helmet.
When placing the new suspension check that the chinstrap is placed in front of the suspension assembly.
