I am not against protective masks, I am a firm believer in them.
I carry two each of M-17A1's in each jeep, they are not there for chemicals like phosgene
and chlorine, which will rot you skin off without a MOPP suite.
They are not quick change filters either, but then again I don't expect
to be in a situation where I would need a change from irritants.
Unless you are in a downwind position with a healthy breeze not to worry much,
that depression between you and the plant should contain it,
The stuff is heavy and tends to cling to the ground,
now if it was VX made there I would be gone 1,000 miles.
The only phosgene plant I knew of was in NJ.
I have other masks with standard NATO filters as a replacement standard,
but are kept here, have forty filters I think,
and I have MOPP suites and boots, hoods for the masks, gloves, US mil decon equipment and chemistry.
The M17A1's will work well filtering radioactive particulates out of the air.
I can't help you with the problem, could if I had in hand.
Personally I would get a MSA mask with no shit plastic adapters required,
less shit to fail, and they are top of the line.
