Emissions Monitoring & LEV Testing

Also known as Stack Sampling or Source Testing, this is a requirement for many companies that have polluting manufacturing processes.

If you require a permit from your Local Authority to operate a polluting process involving emissions to atmosphere, it’s likely that you will need to measure the concentration of gases or particulate matter in the gas stream as it leaves your plant.

Common substances that need to be monitored include particulates, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia, formaldehyde, nitrogen oxides, etc.

Typical test parameters:

  • Pressure drop across fan
  • Pressure drop across bag filters or other arrestment plant
  • Pressure behind exhaust hoods
  • Air flow rate through main system and branch ducts
  • Air flow rate at booth face, or in front of exhaust hood
  • Visualisation of air flow characteristics at contamination source or containment interface

Information provided by the examination & test:
