3.1 Test method for air leakage coefficient for the wearing of facepiece (oil mist method)
3.1.1 Principle
After a person wears a respirator, the ratio OF the concentration c of harmful substances
leaked into the facepiece through the facepiece sealing frame, exhalation valve and
facepiece component assembly parts AND the external concentration c0 is called the air
leakage coefficient of the facepiece, which is expressed in percentage (%).
3.1.2 Test device
See Figure 1 for the test device system.
c. Speak and take a deep breath for about 1 minute. The oil mist concentration in the oil mist chamber shall be within the range of 1
000 ~ 2 500 mg/m3. The filtration efficiency of the canister for oil mist shall be higher than 99.995%.
During the test, measures shall be taken to make the canister absorb the air outside the
oil mist chamber. The air tightness of the exhalation valve and the air tightness of the assembly of
the tested facepiece shall meet the standard requirements. Mount a sampling tube on the tested facepiece; ensure air tightness of the
interface; make the tube end close to the mouth and nose area.
3.1.4 Test procedures Preparation Prepare the tested facepiece; mount the sampling tube; take measures to make
the canister absorb the air outside the oil mist chamber; prepare alcohol cotton balls for
disinfection; Select the subjects; register the selected head and face size and special features;
inform the subjects of the test requirements; Check all instruments and equipment to make them in normal working
condition. Test Pass the oil mist into the oil mist chamber, and make its concentration meet
the requirements and be basically stable. Start the air pump to take a sample of the
airflow; measure it through the oil mist turbidity meter; adjust the instrument indication
to 100%, which is c0; Let the subject wear a respirator; conduct a preliminary air tightness inspection
according to the use method; adjust it properly; connect the sampling tube to the
turbidity meter; Start the air pump; measure the concentration of air flow when the subject
breathes in the smoke-free air outside the oil mist chamber; take 5 samples, and get the
background concentration ce on average; Let the subject enter the oil mist chamber and act according to the regulations
in; measure the concentration of air flow in each case, 5 data for each; obtain
the air leakage concentration c on average;
d. Make the instrument in a state available for working according to the instructions
of the selected CO2 analysis instrument;
e. Start the ventilation equipment to keep the indoor CO2 concentration indoors not
greater than 1%. Test
a. Unscrew the CO2 steel cylinder; inflate about 3 ~ 5 L into the air storage bag 1
and drain it. Rinse 2 times in this way; fill 1 bag with about 3/4 volume, and slow
down the inflation speed;
b. Put the facepiece under test on the standard head-face; pay attention to wearing it
correctly, properly loose and tight, and the sealing frame is airtight;
c. Start the mechanical lung to breathe for about 0.5 min; then, remove the air storage
bag 5 to exhaust air; repeat it twice; at this time, the concentration of the air bag
and the mechanical lung sampling system reaches a stable balance;
d. Stop the operation of the mechanical lung 1 minute after the formal breath
sampling; take off the facepiece under test;
e. Detect the gas sample concentration of the CO2 analysis instrument supplied from
the gas storage bag 5; analyze the gas sample 3 times each time; calculate the
average value. Retest
a. For each facepiece, follow the steps in and repeat 3 ~ 4 times;
b. During the test, sample and analyze the CO2 concentration from the surrounding
environment of the facepiece to obtain c. If c is not greater than 0.5%, when
calculating P according to Formula (4), c can be ignored.
3.2.5 Test result

each facepiece.
3.2.6 Test report
According to 3.1.6.
3.3 Test method for the field of view of the facepiece
3.3.1 Principle
Mount a low-voltage light bulb at the eyeball position of a standard head-face, so that
the solid angle of the light is equal to the solid angle of the average Chinese adult’s field
of view. After wearing the facepiece, the light cone shrinks due to the limitation by the
eye window of the facepiece; and the percentage it preserves is equivalent to the
preservation rate of field of view after the standard head-face wears the facepiece. Use
a medical perimeter to measure the field of view after wearing the facepiece. Measure
the total area of field of view of the two eyes together and the area of the binocular field
of view of the common part of the two eyes. Find their corresponding percentages when
not wearing a facepiece, and use the correction coefficient to correct the total field of
view preservation rate and the binocular field of view preservation rate. The lower field
of view (degree) of wearing the facepiece is then determined by the position of the
lower cross point of the binocular field of view.
3.3.2 Test devices Perimeter: consists of three parts:
a. Semi-circular arc bow: radius 300 ~ 340 mm; can rotate around the horizontal
radius passing through the midpoint of 0°; there is a scale every 5° from 0° on
both sides, extending to 90°; the arc bow is equipped with a slidable white visual
b. Recording device: the recording needle is linked with the visual target through the
shaft wheel and other components; record the orientation and angle of the visual
target on the visual field drawing;
c. Stand: used for supporting the semi-circular arc bow and fixing the recording
device. Standard head-face: shall comply with GB 2428; with black paint on the surface,
6.3 V small light pools installed in the pupils of the two eyes; the connection line of the
light bulb vertexes is 7±0.5 mm behind the midpoint of the two eyes; the field of view
of the head-face itself shall comply with the average Chinese adult’s field of view. The
standard head-face shall be installed on the workbench so that the left and right eyes
can be placed at the center of the semi-circular arc bow respectively and look directly
at its “0” point. Recording paper: used together with the recording device, with the average
visual field curve printed on it. Planimeter: for measuring the graphic area, with an accuracy of 0.1 cm2.
3.3.3 Test conditions According to the number of the facepiece under test, select the standard head-
face of the corresponding number. The test work shall be carried out in a dark room.

cavity shall be airtight, perpendicular to the horizontal plane, and the valve plate
shall not be deformed by force.
3.5.4 Test procedures Check the air tightness of the instrument system; close the constant-volume
cavity and the through-hole of the exhalation valve; pump air to a negative pressure of
1 180 Pa; no pressure change shall be observed within 2 minutes after closing the pump
control valve. Prepare test samples according to test conditions. Install the exhalation valve on the constant volume cavity. Pump air at a flow rate not greater than 500 mL/min until the negative pressure
in the constant volume cavity is 1 250 Pa; close the control valve. Starting from the negative pressure of 1 180 Pa, start the stopwatch and record
the negative pressure change value in 45 s or the time required to return to 0. Replace the exhalation valve and repeat the above test.

It is unqualified when any of the following conditions occurs:
a. The pumping flow rate has reached 500 mL/min, but the negative pressure cannot
reach 1 180 Pa.
