Introduction

There are two types of fit tests: qualitative and quantitative. Quantitative fit testing uses a machine to measure the actual amount of leakage into the facepiece and does not rely upon your sense of taste, smell, or irritation in order to detect leakage. The respirators used during this type of fit testing will have a probe attached to the facepiece that will be connected to the machine by a hose. 


Service Offered

There are three quantitative fit test methods accepted:

  • Generated aerosol;
  • Ambient aerosol; 
  • Controlled Negative Pressure.

Quantitative fit testing can be used for any type of tight-fitting respirator.

Many workers need to wear prescription glasses or personal protective equipment, such as safety goggles or earmuffs, while performing a job. If you fall into this category, then you must wear these items during the fit test to be sure they don't interfere with the respirator's fit.
