A gas-filled recoil separator for heavy element research was installed at the experimental hall of RIKEN linear accelerator facility. An acceptance of the separator was measured using α-particles from 241Am source. Measured acceptance was 12.2 msr. Transmissions of the separator were measured with low-energy Pb (0.26 AMeV) and Bi (0.11 AMeV) recoils. It was found that the transmission for Pb (0.26 AMeV) was 0.84, and that for Bi (0.11 AMeV) was 0.33. Equilibrium charge states for Pb and Bi in helium gas were deduced.
