Quantitative respiratory fit testing uses an instrument to measure the effect of the respirator seal that is suitable for use on all air purifying, air supplying and N, R and P series filtering facepiece respirators.
This method does not rely on your sense of taste, smell, or irritation in order to detect the leakage. Instead, the respirator fit testing equipment measures real-time fit while the user simultaneously performs a series of moving, breathing and talking exercises designed to simulate the same movements made in the field.
Every participant who successfully completes the fit test is provided with a wallet card indicating the respirator they were fitted with and its size.
