Automated Filter Tester 8127

SKU: 8127

Testing of respiratory masks, filters and filter media ensures continued quality and protection to users. There are several respirator standards worldwide, e.g. US 42 CFR 84, GB 2626, that define specifications that need to be met. The model 8130A and 8127 automated filter testers (AFTs) are designed to comply with these standards and have a proven track record of durability, reliability, and minimal maintenance, thus meeting the demanding requirements of the manufacturing and quality control environments. Whether you are looking for a stand-alone tester to check a few filters per day or need to integrate your tester in an automated, high volume production line, the CertiTest AFTs are up to the challenge.

*A newer model of this product is now available.
