Come over to Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) technologies for your Breathing Air Analysis...

  • Fully compliant with National standards including BS EN12021 DEF STAN 68-284;
  • FTIR is by far the more accurate - published standard deviations of up to +/-30% for stain tubes results;
  • Provides single run analysis of over 300 contaminants - eliminating the "grey" areas of other contaminants and reduces the need for costly tube variations;
  • No need for an oil impactor or expensive O2 analyser to ensure that you are complying fully with standards;
  • FTIR provides a permanent record of your analysis which stain tubes fail to do;
  • There are no initial costs for our FTIR analysis and no shelf life as the sample equipment is sent to you as and when it is required for testing;
  • There is no risk of cross contamination;
  • No disposal costs as the sample vessel is returned to us;
  • We can test your air wherever you are - ensuring that no matter where you, your air will be tested by a known competent laboratory;
  • Provides a safe and satisfactory quality assurance of air purity.

As opposed to high pressure sampling bottles which require dedicated expensive transport, we have developed a failsafe, user friendly postal kit for the analysis of your Breathing Air. Our light weight bottle is International Air Transport Association (IATA) approved and can be safely carried by air.
