Product Details

Based on TSI’s established model 8130, currently 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. The new serviceable photometers are lowering the cost of ownership and enable proactive scheduling of maintenance for minimal impact to production schedules.

The model 8130A features a high degree of automation and self-diagnostics that greatly simplifies operation, increases throughput, and improves overall measurement performance. When looking for a stand-alone tester to determine penetration or filter efficiency and pressure drop of your media, filter cartridges, filters, and respiratory masks the model 8130A is up to the challenge.
