Delivering Best-in-Class Performance and Low Cost of Ownership

The 100X is a highly accurate, flexible test rig for a wide range of filter media types designed to optimize production yields while delivering the lowest cost of ownership.

100% Sampling Aerosol Detection System

The 100% Sampling Aerosol Detection System is capable of testing a wide range of HEPA and ULPA filters, up to 99.9995% efficiency. Its innovative design provides a single source of truth, reduces potential sampling errors inherent in legacy designs and with fewer, more robust parts, reduces serviceability costs while increasing equipment uptime.

Best-in-Class Pressure Management

The 100X can be configured with pressure transducers specific to your needs, providing highly accurate, repeatable results that minimize false failures, while increasing both production yields and confidence in the test results.

Automatic, Hybrid & Manual Configurations

The 100X can be configured at time of order to operate three ways:

  • A Manual version is ideal for lab use or production lot testing that requires the operator to initiate the test using ergonomic photoelectric actuators. A test fixture for 100 cm2 flat sheet media is included.
  • The Automatic version integrates seamlessly with a customer designed, PLC-driven, automated production line and is ideal for 100% in-line non-destructive product testing. The unit is controlled via communication ports and becomes a client device to the automated production line.
  • The Hybrid version provides the versatility to operate in Manual mode using the local test fixture or can be switched to Automatic mode using a remote fixture in an automated production environment.

Wide Range of Aerosol Flow Rates

The 100X is capable of air flow rates between 10-170 liters per minute, providing flexibility to test a wide range of filter types. Integrated flow controller keeps flow rates constant leading to more accurate results.

Oil or Salt Aerosol Generation

The 100X is available in either an Oil (DOP, PAO) or Salt (NaCl) aerosol generation models. The patented Aerosol Solution Replenishment System is a separate 2-liter reservoir tank that increases productivity by eliminating the need to shut down production to refill the generator. For salt-based test systems, the replenishment system mitigates aerosol concentration and size / distribution shifts due to dynamic salinity.

Other Features include:

  • LCD touch screen user interface
  • USB; RS232; PLC-Controls (for Automatic, Hybrid version)
  • Compartmentalized design, with easy access for filter replacement and serviceability
