Introducing the new PASport device that will revolutionize the clean room industry,
and change the way you think about HEPA filter validation.

PASport Device

Introducing PASport Terminal Air Filtration Test Port System

With our 100% made in the USA HEPA Filter Filtration Validation Test Ports, you can be assured to have the highest quality product providing the highest quality service for clean air environments.

Terminal HEPA filter validation really can be this easy.


Benefits Of Our PASport System

There are so many benefits to the PASport device. We’ve listed 6 of them just to name a few. To get the complete overview of this device, please download our technical documentation found here.


Cleanroom Suitability

The 316 grade stainless steel as well as the acrylic PASports have smooth clean exterior surfaces suitable to be installed in most cleanrooms and are compatible with the disinfectants and cleansers used in cleanrooms today.


HEPA Filter Validation

Certifiers equipment is compatible with PASport challenge and test ports and allows them to decrease their time validating your filter by as much as 75% which should result in decreases test cost and an increase in your bottom line.


Fewer Contaminants

The valve system prevents unfiltered air entering the room during the attachment or disconnection process by the certifier. PASport can be installed in the ceiling next to the filter or in the wall outside room.


Increased Accuracy of Test

Loss of aerosol to leaks in duct work or plenum become a non-issue. The PASport assures photometer will read the concentration of aerosol introduced into the backside of the HEPA filter.


Reduced Staff & Downtime

Production can resume quickly. Easy connectivity to our valve system all but eliminates any particles or unfiltered air from entering the room. No breaching of the ceiling, no need for a full terminal clean post testing reduces test time and allows staff to resume work quickly.


Decreased Financial Impact of Certification

Improvements in efficiency of testing, and reduced down time results in increased staff productivity. Return to production sooner adding to your bottom line.


HEPA Filtration Must Be Tested Regularly.

HEPA filtration must be tested periodically to ensure performance has not been compromised by physical damage or over-loading. The Aerosol Challenge (DOP testing) is a widely used and accepted method for this test. This method requires the operator or “Certifier” to introduce an aerosolized inert oil upstream of the filter media while counting the particles which pass through downstream of the media with a calibrated Photometer.

In most cases, this process requires gaining access to the upstream airflow to the filter. This “breach” can result in a complete “terminal clean” due to contaminates entering the space. This is especially true for areas with multiple filters which require individual access points. In the case of facilities, where crawl spaces have been provided to introduce the aerosol may require a second operator, and in some cases a second aerosol generator to introduce the aerosol, while the first operator scans the filter media.

Once the challenge begins the “certifier” must calculate the concentration of the aerosol in the air stream to scan the media for leaks.

All of these conditions require time and effort for performance of the test, as well as increased downtime in the production cycle of your sterile area.


The Clear Advantage Of the PASport Closed Loop System.

Our patented design is the only CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM on the market with both a challenge and test port as well as aerosol dispersion system for HEPA validation testing.


  • Only stand alone system with both a challenge and test port.
  • Only system to ensure proper mixing of the aerosol into the upstream airflow.
  • Only system that allows certifier to accurately read the concentration of the aerosol at the filter plenum.
  • The only system that protects the certifier, and the staff of the potential harmful effects of the aerosol.


Easy Plug & Play Hookup

Plug in the aerosol generator to PASport challenge port and photometer to test port using our supplied inserts.


Release Aerosol

Turn on the aerosol generator and introduce aerosol challenge to the system.


Measure Upsteam Concentration

Using the photometer, measure the upstream concentration of aerosol returned through the test port.


Scan Filter

Scan the face of the filter and assess results.


Quick Disconnect

Once the scanning is complete, a simple turn of a screwdriver is all that’s needed to disconnect from one port and be ready to connect to the next.


Frequenty Asked Questions

View our frequently asked questions to find the value and benefit of having PASport devices installed at your facility. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach us directly by calling Performance Assurance Systems (888) 296-7775

How does the PASport device save money?
In a small facility ( 5-6 ceiling mounted HEPA filters) the PASport device can save between $600 to $1200 per certification. Savings increase as the number of filters and complexity of accessing them increases.
How does the PASport device increase the reliability and accuracy of my tests?
The PASport provides you the ability to know with 100% certainty that the aerosol injected into the upstream airflow reaches the filter medium and is proven by the photometer reading. PASport provides greater accuracy than the calculations currently employed.
Why would I spend money on the PASport device?
There are 6 Key benefits when using the PASport device.

  • Decreased downtime.
  • Decreased cost of certification.
  • Increased accuracy of testing.
  • Fewer contaminants entering classified space.
  • Reduced unproductive staff time.
  • Ease of testing, plug and play.
Who do I get to install the PASport?
Our PASport device can be installed in about an hour per filter following our instructions by:

  • Your current HVAC company.
  • Your certification company.
  • Your Facility Management Team.
  • Performance Assurance Systems can send an installation team to your site.
