3M Qualitative Fit Test Apparatus Kit & Accessories


Ensure your protection fits and works as required by law! The biggest contributor to reduced respiratory protection is poor fit.

Conducting a fit test to ensure that a respirator with a tight fitting facepiece provides an adequate seal to the wearer’s face has long been considered best practice as part of a general respiratory protection program. Reflecting this, a fit test for wearers of tight fitting respirators is now required for compliance to AS/NZS1715:2009.

The 3M Qualitative Fit Test apparatus FT-10 Sweet (Saccharin) and FT-30 Bitter (Bitrex) are designed for fit testing disposable and half face reusable respirators fitted with particulate or combination gas/vapour and particulate filters.
