Automated Filter Tester 8150

SKU: 8150

The Automated Filter Tester 8150 is designed for 100% quality assurance testing of P100, FFP3, P3 and similar respiratory filters and cartridges directly in the production line. The 8150 is a highly compact automated filter tester with a very small footprint that easily fits into any existing and new production lines. Using many of the same technologies, it provides matching results to the Automated Filter Tester 8130A while being optimized for high-volume throughput and around-the-clock remote operation with repeatable and accurate test results. Its highly flexible configuration and robust Modbus communication capabilities go beyond current standard performance in the market while minimizing downtime.

Product Details

TSI’s Automated Filter Testers have been used in quality control and manufacturing for more than 35 years. The model 8130A is used by the leading filter and filter media manufacturers, test laboratories, and government agencies around the world due to its proven performance, durability and reliability.

The model 8150 is an evolution of the 8130A, that has been optimized for demanding in-line production testing applications, giving you faster measurement and cycle times for high-throughput.

It incorporates two simultaneously measuring photometers - upstream and downstream of the filter - to eliminate measurement uncertainties due to any change in aerosol concentration. The 8150 also utilizes an innovative concept for aerosol delivery that reduces the number of valves and improves uptime. Even though the 8150 is compact with a very small footprint, sometimes versatile solutions are needed for especially tight spaces: the photometer box can be split from the base unit. The 8150 operates through a PLC driven interface (with Modbus TCP) which offers high flexibilty and reliability in your measurements. The 8150 contains a comprehensive set of internal diagnostics to provide you with complete confidence of your filter efficiency measurements and minimize downtime.
