Description / Features / Spec


TSI PortaCount (8048-1) with UK Version (Mini-Tablet)

The 8048-1 Pro Portacount Respirator is a fit-tester which does not have an embedded displays and instead comes with a Microsoft Surface Go as its interface.  TSI’s Portacount 8048-1 fit-tester has the ability to fit-test full face masks, half face masks and disposable masks (FFP3, FFP1 and FFP2).

Use the Portacount 8048-1 to carry out quantitative fit testing and stay compliant with fit-testing standards.  It’s an effective way of ensuring your staff are fully protected and will prevent them from using poorly-fitting masks.

TSI’s Portacount is a real-time monitor and will provide real-time readings and measurements to quickly identify the correct size of mask for your employee or subject.  An additional advantage to this fit-tester is the compatible software.  This will allow you to automatically record your test results within a database.  These results can then be exported, shares and managed.
