Banana Oil Qualitative Fit Test Kit
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires fit
tests to ensure proper fit for workers who use respirators. There are
two accepted methods to verify an adequate face-to-facepiece seal: quantitative
and qualitative testing.
Quantitative testing methods rely on objective data to determine a proper
fit. With this type of test, special facepiece adapters or probed facepieces
allow air samples to be drawn from inside a facepiece to determine if
there are any breaks in the facepiece seal. As a result, the test produces
Qualitative fit test methods are subjective in nature and rely on the
judgment of the test subject. A proper fit is determined if the respirator
wearer does not detect the taste or odor of a test solution in a controlled
environment. We offer a wide range of accessories for both test programs.
Easy, effective and cost-efficient way to ensure proper fit of MSA tight-fitting
half-mask and full- facepiece respirators. Testing can be done in accordance
with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) protocols.
Accessories available for both qualitative and quantitative fit-testing
programs. QuikChek™ Series Adapters attach easily to MSA facepieces;
eliminate need for special probed facepieces for quantitative tests.
MSA’s Banana Oil Fit Test Kit differs from the other kits in that
it relies on a test subject’s ability to detect a 95 percent pure
solution of Isoamyl Acetate (banana oil). It includes a clear polyethylene
bag, a 24-inch diameter top frame with spring clamp, eyebolt and pulley,
a 50-foot cord, four one-liter glass jars with metal lids, one eye dropper,
a syringe, Isoamyl Acetate solution and detailed instructions on how
to conduct the test according to OSHA protocol.
