MBP 116 – Manual Dusting Test

Performance of filter media is essentially defined by parameters such as differential pressure, gravimetric filtration efficiency and dust holding capacity. The Topas Manual Filter Media Test Rig MBP 116 can be applied to determine these filter parameters at flat sheet materials. This test rig has been designed as universal testing equipment. It combines a simple and robust setup with a manual and therefore cost efficient handling and operation. Because of its vertical test channel setup it is especially suitable for the testing of filter media according to ISO 5011.


  • Reliable timesaving testing of gravimetric filter efficiency, dust holding capacity, differential pressure and fractional filtration efficiency
  • Simple operation in combination with a robust, modular design
  • Holders for test filter and backup filter separately removable, weighable without filter removal 
  • Adjustable flow rate from 1.5..18 m³/h
  • Backup filter for protection of the flow rate unit in case of a filter breakthrough
  • Integrated Solid Aerosol Generator SAG 410 for feeding rates from approx. 1.5-20 g/h
  • Port to connect a vacuum cleaner
  • Customized test rig specification


  • Quality assurance of flat sheet filter media in terms of a final clearance and a receiving inspection
  • Performance testing of filter materials during research and development stage
