Quantative Fit Testing?

SCBA Mask users MUST be fit tested at least annually, so say NFPA & OSHA.

Save Money with our easy to use rental electronic fit testing machine; a good option for most fire & industrial organizations.

* Rent our Quantifit unit by the week or month.
* Schedule multi-year rental for better rental rates.

The Quantifit is easy to learn to use with the average fit test taking about five minutes per person.

A fit test adapter is required for each model of SCBA mask being tested. It is attached to the threaded connector of the APR Adapter and a sample tube is inserted through the APR Adapter inhalation valve. A barbed fitting on the fit test adapter body may be connected to an appropriate quantitative fit test apparatus.

American Airworks carries a full line of various quantitative fit test adapters for all SCBA brands.

Qualitative Fit Testing? click here.

Not For SCBA Face Masks. The qualitative fit test provides the user with a qualitative measure of the fit of the respirator. First, a sensitivity test is performed to determine if the test subject can detect the test agent being used.

Once it is determined that the test subject can sense the test agent, a qualitative fit can begin. The subject will perform a series of activities while wearing the respirator inside a testing chamber filled with test agent to ensure a proper fit.

Our Bitrex qualitative fit testing kit is more accurate than using the Portacount fit tester and the OHD units cannot do fit testing on N-95 and N-100 APR masks.
