Abstract : An automated procedure for calculating a respirator protection factor is presented in this report. This procedure not only reduces the sodium chloride leak test data, but also calculates a protection factor using a voltage-to- frequency converter circuit to do time-averaged integration and a least-squares curve fit computer program.
