I have thousands of hours wearing respirators both full face and half mask APR's and supplied air in the oil and gas as well as mining industries.
We always use North respirators and cartridges.
We work with some nasty stuff at times and they have always preformed well.
The cartridges the op is asking about as was said are only good for airborn particles and dust. They will do nothing for fumes or vapors. For that you need OV (organic vapor) cartridges.
We change out our cartridges daily (we work 12 hour days)as instructed by our industry professionals(safety personnel and Industrial hygenists).
They might well last longer but where I work we don't take chances with our health.
I can guarantee you without using respirators and doing what I do and have done I would be dead long ago from lead poisioning, benzene, calcium hypochlorite. and a laundry list of hazardous chemical fumes.
