I'm interested to connect with anyone who's had hands-on experience of the IMT PF-300 Flowanalyser Pro. I've used the IMT Citrex H5, which I'm really impressed with. The PF-300 seems to be identical to the Citrex H5, with the addition of low-flow measurements. Any comments, good or bad, about the PF-300 would be good to know.

Sorry Old Buddy ... "similar" is not the word I would have chosen.

Anyway, Justin really likes the Citrex H5.


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

The Citrex H5 is a great piece of kit. It's user interface is unrivalled - in my opinion. And it's VERY portable. If anyone is looking to replace their current vent analysers, I'd certainly recommend giving the H5 a trial.

I've arranged to trial the PF-300 later this week.

Citrex H5 It's good for quick testing, it looks like a "digital flow meter",But it is not a professional airflow analyzer, and if you want to use it for in-depth analysis, it will be more difficult.
PF-300 is derived from Respical T300, in other words, it is an upgrade of Respical T300
As a professional air flow analyzer, I think high flow, low flow, capacity calculation... these are necessary functions

Currently I own Respical T300, Timeter-RT200

I have used Bio-Tek VT Plus HF and Fluke VT650

The H5 is a flow analyser certified to calibrate respiratory devices (and recommended by a number of ventilator manufacturers). It is capable of in-depth analysis, and functional verification. A great all-rounder.

We decommissioned our RT200's many years ago, in favour of modern test equipment with equivalent accuracies.

Certified airflow analyzer, maybe it’s not the best.Because there are many business factors that affect.
For example, I have used the Fluke VT650,In low tidal volume state, VT650 cannot complete analysis,Only test parameters recommended by the manufacturer can be used for analysis.These test parameters are very moderate and have no limit values.
If you're looking to complete a standard PM job, it can get the job done,But if you hope to challenge the limit, you will fail.
Maybe VT900 can, but VT900 is too expensive
So I have been using Respical T300, Timeter-RT200.

Citrex H5 looks similar to Fluke VT650, I mean performance specs,It's capable of doing normal PM work, but if you want to test it to the extreme, I'd be skeptical
