TSI 8127 Certitest Automated Filter Tester

The TSI 8127 Certitest Automated Filter Tester is designed to comply with commercial respirator standards around the globe. It has a proven track record of durability, reliability, and minimal maintenance, meeting the demanding requirements of 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, CertiTest AFT’s are up to the challenge. Specially designed aerosol generators and detectors enable highly repeatable and reproducible filter-efficiency measurements. In addition, the 8127 features a high degree of automation and self-diagnostics that greatly simplifies operation, increases throughput and improves overall measurement performance. As a result, TSI filter testers are ideally suited for QC testing.

The 8127 measures efficiencies up to 99.999 percent (penetrations as low as 0.001 percent). A variety of oils may be used because it produces oil aerosol without using heat. Operators are able to load and test over five filters per minute.

TSI offers a variety of optional accessories to diversify the capability and applicability of the 8127. These include custom filter holders and external adaptors for testing a wide variety of filter types and an external control interface for automated tester operation.
