Described in this report are the USAFSAM sodium chloride respirator quantitative fit test RQFT instrument and its application in fitting respirators to aircrew personnel for chemical warfare defense. The performance evaluation of a respirator is quantified by a parameter known as a protection factor PF. Also discussed are the sodium chloride aerosol generation, sampling, and detection subsystems. The analytical methods used to collect and reduce the PF data are presented, as well as detailed operational and maintenance procedures.
