Abstract:

When performing protection factor testing in alternate chambers, aerosol sampling must be conducted to verify that the chambers can provide the necessary challenge concentrations as stated in the 1992 Joint Service Standardization Agreement for Fit Factor Testing of Military Masks. A total of four mobile air beam chamber configurations were identified to support protection factor testing in the field. It was determined that all chamber configurations satisfy the requirements set forth in the 1992 Joint Service Standard for protection factor testing.
