The KN95 is a standard for respiratory equipment which filters 95% of particulates greater than 0.3 microns. KN95 masks are a PPE. They offer significant protection over standard surgical blue 3 ply masks and are approved by the CDC as acceptable replacements if N95 masks are unavailable.
Filtering Performance: equal to 95% @ 0.3 Micron or greater.
Personal Protective Equipments
Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) are protective gears designed to safeguard the health of
workers by minimizing the exposure to a biological agent.
Components of PPE
1. Face shield and goggles
a) Triple layer medical mask
b) N-95 Respirator mask
4. Coverall/Gowns with hood and attached shoe covers
An infrared thermometer is a thermometer which infers temperature from a portion of the thermal radiation sometimes called black-body radiation emitted by the object being measured. They are sometimes called laser thermometers as a laser is used to help aim the thermometer, or non-contact thermometers or temperature guns, to describe the device's ability to measure temperature from a distance. By knowing the amount of infrared energy emitted by the object and its emissivity, the object's temperature can often be determined within a certain range of its actual temperature. Infrared thermometers are a subset of devices known as "thermal radiation thermometers".
