Cummins and DuPont partner to use filter technology to supply critical material for N95 respirator masks
The first masks featuring the filter technology are being used as part of a project to supply masks to Minnesota’s M Health Fairview network

Columbus, Ind. – As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and DuPont (NYSE: DD) are helping address the nation’s shortage of N95 respirator masks. Cummins’ NanoNet® and NanoForce® Media technology, which uses DuPont’s Hybrid Membrane Technology (HMT), can typically be found in air, fuel and lube filtration products used in heavy-duty diesel engines to prevent long-term engine wear, but also can be used in the N95 respirator masks worn by healthcare professionals to filter harmful airborne particles that can spread COVID-19.

Cummins and 3M partner to respond to COVID-19 pandemic
Cummins will utilize labor and equipment typically used for producing diesel engine filters to manufacture high efficiency particulate filters for use in 3M’s Powered Air Purifying Respirators

The partnership has the potential to more than double the current production of filters for 3M’s PAPRs. The additional filters are needed as 3M has ramped up production of PAPRs to meet a surge in demand for personal protective equipment due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
 
“Cummins has been striving to find ways to help during the COVID-19 crisis,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cummins. “Working with 3M, we discovered our technologies and manufacturing expertise could be relevant as we partner in new ways to help protect healthcare professionals.”
