MPF Installation Requirements

  • Qualified electrician for electrical connection
  • Plumber for drain, air and water connections
  • HVAC installer (or other qualified personnel) for chamber vent connection
  • Level floor
  • Access to the outside via a roof vent or side wall vent
  • Floor drain
  • Pressurized 450 – 690 kPa (60-100 psi) ASTM D1193 reagent grade type IV water. Best chamber performance is obtained at the higher pressure ratings
  • Clean dry compressed air regulated to 655– 698 kPa(95-100 psi)
  • Customer specified electric power from a lockable disconnect with appropriate amount of electric cord and conduit for the chamber location
  • 1.9 cm (3/4”) plastic (PVC) plumbing fittings and ball valve for chamber drain to connect the chamber to the floor drain
  • 10.2 cm (4”) outside diameter (O.D.) CPVC schedule 40 “T”, CPVC 10.2 cm (4”) to 1.9 cm (3/4”) reducer
  • 10.2 cm (4”) O.D.(CPVC) plumbing fittings for the chamber vent
  • 5.08 cm (2”) O.D.(CPVC) plumbing fittings for the chamber vent
  • 9.525 mm (3/8”) O.D. poly tubing from the compressed air line source to the chamber compressed air installation fitting
  • 9.525 mm (3/8”) O.D. poly tubing from the pressurized DI line to the chamber inlet

Improper installation will affect the operation of the instrument and compromise test integrity. We strongly discourage installation in a warehouse, boiler room, garage, factory floor, paint room, powder mixing room, where outside doors are frequently opened, where dust is frequently airborne, or where humidity, air pressure or temperature vary widely.
