As the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread worldwide in the early part of this year, one of the first things to become clear was the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) – facemasks in particular – was not ready for the ensuing surge in demand.
Mask manufacturers have become a hot spot in 2020, and as the downstream supporting equipment of mask manufacturers, various filter performance tester of respirators
manufacturers have also become a big hot spot.Still today, states are scrambling to find N95 respirator masks, the kind that seal against the face and filter out infectious particles, protecting frontline workers from inhaling the coronavirus.
Much has changed since then, and while there are certain countries where the use of facemasks and the understanding of their capabilities is still very much in the learning-curve phase, the demand has gone from select workplace environments to a scenario where a large portion of the global population is seeking facemasks for everyday use. This has stressed the supply chain for a variety of reasons, but it has also put significant pressure on the organizations who are involved in testing and validating the performance of various types of facemasks.
Qinsun is a professional testing instrument manufacturer, and we have a strong design and production team for Automated Filter Tester series products.The Automated Filter Tester Model G506
produced by Qinsun continues to be the best solution for testing particulate respirator filters, disposable filtering face pieces, and a wide assortment of filter media.
The model G506 features a high degree of automation and self-diagnostics that greatly simplifies operation, increases throughput, and improves overall measurement performance. Whether looking for a stand-alone tester to check a few filters per day or need to integrate a tester in an automated, high-volume production line, the model G506 is up to the challenge.
Qinsun has been making efforts to make the automated filter media tester
more humanized and precise, which can save more costs. To this end, our research and development has been adjusting the equipment.Model G506 now offers higher sensitivity and resolution - up to 99.9999 percent efficiency has been produced with Emery oil at concentrations of 200 mg/m³ - at a lower cost of ownership due to the new serviceable photometers inside.
