TSI's Mask Integrity Test Accessory (MITA) Offers Confidence to CBRN Respirator Users

MITA assesses the overall integrity of masks by performing an aerosol leak test using the PortaCount ® Respirator Fit Tester as a particle detector.


SHOREVIEW, MN - TSI, the industry leader in the design and production of quantitative fit testing technology and biohazard detection equipment announces the release of their Mask Integrity Test Accessory (MITA) 8120. MITA works in tandem with the PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester to test full face respirators for leaks and ensure they are functioning as designed.

MITA assesses the overall integrity of masks by performing an aerosol leak test using the PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester as a particle detector. While under conditions of negative pressure and constant flow, the mask is tested on a full head form with an enhanced bladder seal system to provide a tight seal for most gas mask and full face respirator types and sizes. Testing the mask on this full head form configuration allows for use of the mask’s head harness, mimicking a real-life application and providing better representative results.

MITA is based on TSI’s proven PortaCount® quantitative fit testing technology and its features include an easy-to-read display, a streamlined menu structure and a step-by-step testing sequence, which allows for minimal operator training.
