Product Details

The Automated Filter Tester Model 8130A continues to be the best solution for testing particulate respirator filters, disposable filtering face pieces, and a wide assortment of filter media. The TSI filter testers have been used in quality control and manufacturing by leading filter and filter media manufacturers and test centers around the world for more than 20 years.

Based on TSI's established model 8130, the world's most-used filter tester, model 8130A now offers higher sensitivity and resolution - up to 99.9999 percent efficiency has been produced with Emery oil at concentrations of 200 mg/m³ - at a lower cost of ownership due to the new serviceable photometers inside. The model 8130A features a high degree of automation and self-diagnostics that greatly simplifies operation, increases throughput, and improves overall measurement performance. Whether looking for a stand-alone tester to check a few filters per day or need to integrate a tester in an automated, high-volume production line, the model 8130A is up to the challenge.
