MFP 3000 FTD

MFP 3000 with additional test duct for 400 cm² filter test area

The MFP 3000 FTD filter test rig comprises the test rig MFP 3000 with a test surface of 100 cm2 and the additional conduit FTD 3000 with a test surface of 400 cm2, which can be operated in turn.

The MFP 3000 FTD operates in suction mode. This ensures an exceptionally uniform dust cake formation even at high inflow speeds.

Operation principle

Your special advantages

  • Additional test channel in FTD 3000
  • Enhanced comparability of inhomogeneous filter media
  • Optional: The FTD 3000 can also be used as stand-alone device (special model) without MFP 3000
    • Can be directly connected to the suctioning and compressed air connections of the MFP 3000 2 channels: 1 suctioning channel, 1 compressed air channel
  • Virtually simultaneous particle measurement in the raw gas and clean gas
  • Particle size measurements from 0.2 – 40 µm
  • Measurement of Cn max= 106 particles/cm3 without dilution
  • Internationally comparable measurement results
  • Widespread distribution of the measurement system
  • High reproducibility of the testing method
  • Easy use of different test aerosols, e.g. SAE Fine and Coarse, NaCl/KCl, DEHS
  • Highest raw gas concentrations of up to > 1000 mg/m3 (ISO Fine) or > 5000 mg/m3 (ISO Coarse) with measurement of the fraction separation efficiency for burden tests
  • Flexible filter test software FTControl
  • Sequence programs for pressure loss measurements, measurements of fraction separation efficiency and burden measurements
  • Easy to operate, even untrained personnel can be instructed quickly in the use of the equipment
  • Short set-up times
  • Cleaning and calibration can be performed autonomously by the customer
  • Easy use of the measurement technology components – even in other applications
  • Mobile setup, easy to move on castors
  • Reliable operation
  • Validation of the clear function of individual components and the overall system during pre-delivery acceptance testing and upon delivery
  • Low-maintenance
  • The unit will reduce your operating costs

Individual solutions for various industries
