The BNG 2 was an Italian industrial half mask.
Mask overview Edit
The BNG 2 half-face respirator was made of an injection moulded faceblank to which the following were attached:
- A 2-straps system
- An exhale valve at the front
- A threaded inlet
The faceblank itself covered the mouth and the nose, and it had a peripheral seal.
The two straps were made of either of rubber or elastic cloth. The upper one split into two parts around the back of the head to allow a better grip. The lower strap had a hook system for easier donning.
The exhale valve was either like the T.35 or custom.
The inlet was like the T.35 too. On later variants, a rubber ring was inserted.
First variant EditThe first version on the BNG 2 half mask was made of black rubber and sported a typical T.35 exhale system and straps made of elastic cloth. This variant came in only one size.
Second variant EditThe second version of the BNG 2 half mask was made of grey rubber and sported a modernized T.35 exhale system and straps made of rubber. The mask came in multiple sizes and had the E.N.P.I. marking on the left cheek. The inlet was provided with a rubber ring to allow the use of filters without a one.
The mask comes in a small metal box. When needed, the mask was issued with special glasses to protect against certain substances.
The mask was issued with various filters depending on the use, usually Dirin types.
