“What are the differences between the different RZ Mask® filters? How do I choose the right one for me?”
These are some of the most common questions we receive here at RZ Industries®. This blog post will provide all you need to know about our industry-leading filters, to help you select the best one for your needs. Keep in mind that, no matter which RZ® filter you choose, you’ll receive unprecedented protection for you and your loved ones.
Filter Testing & Performance
All RZ® filters trap particulates down to .1 micron in size, which is 400 times smaller than a human hair! In addition, RZ® filters have been laboratory proven to be up to 99.9% effective at removing these particles. Testing was performed at the world-renowned Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City, UT.
Note that this performance far surpasses that of fabric or cloth masks, homemade masks, bandanas, surgical masks, and paper masks. Even N95 masks are only rated to filter 95% of particulates down to .3 micron! RZ Industries® prides itself on offering world-class performance and protection.
RZ® Filter Models
The F1 is our standard RZ Mask® filter, consisting of two layers. The first layer is our highly effective particulate filter. The second layer is an Active Carbon Element, which helps to reduce harmful fumes and odors. Two F1 filters are included with all RZ Mask® purchases.
The F2 is our High-Flow filter, with 40% better breathability than our standard F1 filter. It uses a highly effective Electrostatic Filter, which promotes better flow – with no loss in filter effectiveness. Note that the F2 does not contain an active carbon element, eliminating the filtration of fumes and odors.
The F3 is our premium RZ® filter, and combines the best technologies from our F1 and F2 filters. It has a two-layer design, using the High-Flow Electrostatic Filter – along with our odor-reducing Active Carbon Element. We’re proud to offer it as our flagship model, for times when nothing less than the very best will do.
Don’t forget that all of our filters come in three sizes – Medium, Large, and Extra Large. These correspond with the three sizes of RZ Masks®. It’s important that you only install the correct size filter in your mask, to ensure proper fit and filter performance – to keep you safe from harmful contaminants in the air.
