PMFT 1000 M

PMFT 1000 M: Atemschutzfiltern, Filtermaskeneffizienz
PMFT 1000 M for reliable continuous operation in routine monitoring of half masks. Test of total penetration better than the standard, exact analysis of filter mask efficiency from 145 nm to 5 µm

The PMFT 1000 M tests face masks better than the standards EN 149/EN 13274-7 with additional accurate analysis of filter mask efficiency for SARS-CoV-2 (size approximately 120 nm to 160 nm). Both total photometric penetration and fractional efficiency are tested, e.g., the efficiency in the whole size range, respectively, the particle size-dependent penetration.

Operation principle

Your special advantages

  • Test rig working principle better than EN 149 and EN 13274-7
  • Equivalent to GB 2626, 42 CFR 84 and ASTM 2299-3 by additional software option
  • Test of community masks equivalent to CWA 17553
  • Meets the requirements for respirators specified by the CCF (Covid Certified Filter) quality seal
  • Includes two aerosol generators for NaCl and for oil
  • Testing of fractional efficiency, e.g., efficiency in whole size range of 145 nm up to 40 µm
  • Exact analysis of filter and filter mask efficiency for SARS-CoV-2 (size approx. 120 nm up to 160 nm). Efficiency also displayed at 145 nm
  • Future proof: Works with any kind of aerosol without adjustments
  • Further measurement of differential pressure, e.g., as well within different face velocities to simulate test of breathing resistance
  • Face velocity adjustable between 1.5 – 70 cm/s
  • Product capable of fast quality assurance and continuous optimization in R&D (display of size distribution)
  • Individual face mask adapter for your product
  • Attractive two years maintenance package for availability of test rig
  • Can be operated as Mas Q-Check with optional Mas-Q-Head

The software extension additionally offers:

  • Display of penetration results of the entire tolerance range of the size distribution according to EN 13274-7
  • Allows the comparison of different test institutes and test systems
  • Facilitates certification
  • Shows wide range of standards. Depending on the test operation – i.e., particle size distribution of the test aerosol – one and the same mask can perform very well or fail the test

Individual solutions for various industries

  • Reliable continuous operation in routine monitoring of half masks
  • Test of total penetration for respiratory masks
  • Exact analysis of filter mask efficiency e.g., Coronavirus
  • Can be operated as Mas-Q-Check with optional Mas-Q-Head
