Title (EN) FIT-TEST METHOD FOR RESPIRATOR WITH SENSING SYSTEM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ESSAI DE RÉGLAGE POUR RESPIRATEUR DOTÉ DE SYSTÈME DE DÉTECTION
Abstract:
(EN) A method of fit testing includes providing a respirator donned by a wearer, providing an aerosol generator with a known aerosol output parameter, providing an enclosure that is physically supported around the wearer's head, where the aerosol generator delivers aerosol with the known aerosol output parameter that is at least partially contained within the enclosure around wearer's head, providing a sensor in electrical communication with a sensing element, where the sensor is operably connected to the respirator, and where the sensor is configured to monitor a particulate concentration parameter within the respirator, and providing a reader configured to communicate with the sensor, where the reader is configured to provide a respirator fit parameter based on a comparison of the particulate concentration parameter to the known aerosol output parameter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé d'essai de réglage consistant à prendre un respirateur porté par un utilisateur, à prendre un générateur d'aérosol comportant un paramètre de sortie d'aérosol connu, à prendre une enceinte qui est physiquement maintenue autour de la tête de l'utilisateur, le générateur d'aérosol distribuant un aérosol présentant le paramètre de sortie d'aérosol connu qui est au moins partiellement contenu dans l'enceinte autour de la tête de l'utilisateur, à prendre un capteur en communication électrique avec un élément de détection, le capteur étant connecté fonctionnellement au respirateur, et le capteur étant configuré pour surveiller un paramètre de concentration particulaire à l'intérieur du respirateur, et à prendre un lecteur configuré pour communiquer avec le capteur, le lecteur étant configuré pour fournir un paramètre de réglage de respirateur sur la base d'une comparaison entre le paramètre de concentration particulaire et le paramètre de sortie d'aérosol connu.
