I wish I knew what color cartridge that lady was using with her respirator.
She said the smell came through their respirators.. but that tells us nothing.. cause they likely just didn't have the right cartridges in the masks...

Cartridges come with a color code..

I reach for the purple cartridges for the nastiest stuff including auto body putty or polyurethane organic Volatiles and methlyamine,- Find cartridges with purple and olive color codes... I just checked the Grainger catalogue, and Industrial Supply and those cartridges at now $250! Oh wait thats for 6 pack... Oh thats not too bad.. www.grainger.com...

The last time I bought them was 5 years back and they were pricey then... and the mask I used had two of them.. and I couldn't smell anything... period, I wouldn't know that my hair was on fire until it got down to the scalp..

If you are feeling lousy from breathing this stuff, you need in increase liver clearance of the stuff...you will need N-Acetyl-Cysteine aka NAC it helps protect the liver and is prescribed to people who have damage... see beyond-a-century.com search liver support. A liver function test SGOT/SGPT and Alkaline Phosphatase will show whether the stuff it tearing up your liver..understand Im an electronics guy not a doctor blessed by the high priest at the AMA.

Activated carbon filters of anykind will soak up this stuff to a great degree... but if its heavy, they wont last long...I already told my wife to buy a case of them.

And... an ozone generator used in your house will destroy all that stuff rendering it harmless CO2 and NO2 but ozone is an irritant so do this sparingly just till the odors are gone...

ABOUT 800 Gulf oil response workers aboard 120 vessels have been recalled to shore after dozens aboard a supply boat were hospitalised from exposure to a natural gas leak, BP has said.

The crews were "brought back to shore" as a precaution after a supply vessel accidentally broke open a gas line while mooring at a gas platform in Cocodrie, southwest Louisiana, BP's Nicole Lachance said.

"There will be a review of the events that took place," with a safety review for the 800 workers who were recalled from that area of the Gulf, she said.

The move came after 36 people were taken to hospital, with two workers complaining of more serious symptoms including shortness of breath, disorientation and chest pains.
