Abstract:

A rapid, accurate and efficient method to conduct inflation, volume and leak tests on pressure containing personal protective garments was developed and validated. The new system consists of a computer data acquisition and process control system that integrates flow rate over time to calculate volume. Validation of the new test system was accomplished by comparing the volumes calculated by the computer with volumes actually measured via a wet spirometer. Results from the validation study showed that the computerized system was highly accurate. In addition, the computerized system allows suits to be rapidly and effectively evaluated.
