3M FT-11 Sweet Sensitivity Solution - Saccharine
The FT 11 is a sweet solution comprised of sodium saccharin and is used to check the face to respirator seal on any mask. The solution is used to ensure the test subject can detect the presence of the sweet flavor at low levels prior to performing the actual fit test. If the subject can't detect the sweet flavor, then the FT-31 bitter test solution should be used.
Confined space, oil rig and refinery workers should all be fit tested with any new equipment, prior to commencing work, to ensure they are adequately protected from potentially harmful particles and gases.
The FT-11 sweet solution comes in one 55ml bottle to act as a replacement should you run out or taint the original bottle supplied as part of the 3M Fit Testing Kit.
