Automatic Filter Tester 8150 Increases Quality Control of Respirators


Optimized for high-volume throughput and round-the-clock remote operation, the Automated Filter Tester 8150 is for 100% quality assurance testing of P100, FFP3/P3, and similar respiratory filters and cartridges directly in the production line. The 8150 is a highly compact automated filter tester that can easily be retrofitted into any existing production line. 


Model 8150 is an evolution of the 8130A, that has been optimized for demanding in-line production testing applications, giving you faster measurement and cycle times for high throughput. It incorporates two simultaneously measuring photometers—upstream and downstream of the filter—to eliminate measurement uncertainties due to any change in aerosol concentration. The 8150 also uses an innovative concept for aerosol delivery that reduces the number of valves and improves uptime. For especially tight spaces, the photometer box can be split from the base unit or two units can be stacked.


The 8150 operates through a PLC-driven interface and contains a comprehensive set of internal diagnostics to provide you with complete confidence in your filter efficiency measurements.
