PMFT 1000 F

PMFT 1000 M: Atemschutzfiltern, Filtermaskeneffizienz
PMFT 1000 F as an all-rounder in the testing of almost all mask and filter types. Test of total penetration better than the standard, exact analysis of filter mask efficiency from 145 nm to 5 µm

The PMFT 1000 F tests respiratory protection particle filters better than the standards EN 143, ISO 16900-3, and NIOSH 42 CFR 84 with additional accurate analysis of filter mask efficiency for SARS-CoV-2 (size approximately 120 nm to 160 nm). In addition, testing face masks based on EN 149/EN 13274-7 standards is possible. Both total photometric penetration and fractional efficiency are tested, e.g., the efficiency in the whole size range, respectively, the particle size-dependent penetration.
