CBRN PARTICULATE TESTING
Twenty (20) canisters will be tested against DOP Additionally nine canisters from cyclohexane service life tests will be tested against DOP The concept of testing using “Equivalent Face Velocity” was removed from the concept. Using docket comments and meetings with stakeholders showed that this was not effective for certification.
