§ 84.207 Bench tests; gas and vapor tests; minimum requirements; general.
(a) Bench tests will be made on an apparatus that allows the test atmosphere at 50 ±5 percent relative humidity and room temperature, approximately 25 °C, to enter the cartridges continuously at predetermined concentrations and rates of flow, and that has means for determining the test life of the cartridges.
(b) Where two cartridges are used in parallel on a chemical cartridge respirator, the bench test will be performed with the cartridges arranged in parallel, and the test requirements will apply to the combination rather than to the individual cartridges.
(c) Three cartridges or pairs of cartridges will be removed from containers and tested as received from the applicant.
(d) Two air purifying cartridges or pairs of cartridges will be equilibrated at room temperature by passing 25 percent relative humidity air through them at the flow rate of 25 liters per minute (l.p.m.) for 6 hours.
(e) Two air purifying cartridges or pairs of cartridges will be equilibrated by passing 85 percent relative humidity air through them at the flow rate of 25 l.p.m.
(f) All cartridges will be resealed, kept in an upright position, at room temperatures, and tested within 18 hours.
(g) Cartridges will be tested and shall meet the minimum requirements set forth in Table 11 of this subpart.
