If your business is one where your compressed air comes into contact with either your product or is used by your employees as Breathing Air, you have a legal obligation to ensure it meets the relevant requirements in terms of Air Quality. Compressed air used in a wide range of industries, including food production, pharmaceutical and vehicle repair needs to reach specific levels of purity, depending on whether it comes into direct contact with the product being manufactured. Wearside Pneumatics can help you ensure that your compressed air installation meets the standards applicable to your industry through Air Quality Testing.
Why you need Air Quality Testing
Compressed air normally originates from a compressor system installed or operating at the place of use and there are various factors that can affect the quality and safety of this air. These can include airborne contamination from local processes or vehicle exhaust fumes, a failure in the filtration equipment or issues with the performance of the compressor itself.
Air Quality Testing carried out by Wearside Pneumatics will measure the level of particulates in the air and provide you with documentary evidence that your compressed air meets the standards demanded of your industry.
What Air Quality Testing involves
Using our state-of-the-art Factair testing equipment, Wearside Pneumatics can provide accurate analysis and certification of your compressed air and tell you exactly how much Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Water and Oil are present within it. We will also provide you with certification of the results to ensure that you meet your duty of care as an employer.
