TSI Incorporated announced the launch of the newest automated filter tester, the model 8150, which is designed to meet the high demand for quality assurance of respirator filters and cartridges such as P100 and FFP3. The model 8150 is a compact automated filter tester that can be easily retrofitted into any existing production line. It utilizes much of the same technologies as in the model 8130A and provides matching results, while being optimized for high-volume throughput and 24/7 remote operation.
“We know that high testing speed and reliable results are important for in-line production testing,” said Jürgen Spielvogel, senior global product manager at TSI. “The 8150 will ensure that each of your respiratory filters complies with standards such as NIOSH 42 CFR 84, GB2626, and EN143/EN149.”
TSI’s Automated Filter Testers have been used in quality control and manufacturing for more than 35 years. The 8150 is an evolution of the 8130A, further optimized for performance and robustness. Two simultaneously measuring photometers – upstream and downstream of the filter – eliminate measurement uncertainties due to changing aerosol concentrations. The 8150 operates through a PLC-driven interface and contains a comprehensive set of internal diagnostics for you to know the tester operates correctly.
