Mesdan develops testing kit for protective face masks
With the huge market demand for protective medical mask testing, Mesdan, manufacturer of yarn splicers, knotters, and laboratory quality control testing equipment, has developed a new testing kit, Airtronic, which can test both fabrics for protective masks and masks themselves. Airtronic is one of the most popular air permeability testers on the market.
Mesdan has developed a ‘medical mask testing kit’ according to EN 14683:2019 and ASTM F2100:2019 (both referring to differential pressure and measuring the difference between airflow above and below the specimen) as well as EN 149 (Particles filtering), the company said in a press release.
With the new kit both fabric and ready-made mask can be tested, the kit could be either integrated into a new Airtronic or installed onto an existing Airtronic. Two different models are available, small bench top and movable stand-alone unit. For Airtronic, the unique average pore size assessment software is also available.
