PMFT 1000

PMFT 1000 M: Atemschutzfiltern, Filtermaskeneffizienz
PMFT 1000 for development and production monitoring of half masks. Test of total penetration better than the standard, exact analysis of filter mask efficiency from 120 nm to 40 µm

The PMFT 1000 tests respirators 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.
