Q: What is its shelf life of the iEvac Smoke Mask / Fire Hood?
Per supplier: 5-1/2 years from the date of manufacture.
Q: Can this iEvac Smoke Mask / Hood be used to filter fungus, and what size micron filter?
The iEvac has a HEPA P100 particle filter which is the highest grade particle filter - what the military uses. It will filter out 99.996% of particles as small as 0.2 microns. A spore is usually at least 20 microns in size. We can safely say the iEvac will protect against fungus.
Q: How long are the filters good for once the iEvac Smoke mask is put into service?
5-1/2 years from date of manufacture.
Q: Is this good for cockpit use in case of engine fires on GA aircraft?
Yes, this is the intended application.
Q: Question 3: I think wanted to know once its opened how long is it good for, or is it one use only?
If you are in a smoke/fire condition it is one time use, the filters have a catalyst that will convert CO to CO2 and will last about an hour.
