When using compressed gas as the source of breathing air, numerous factors can affect the quality and safety. To avoid the possibility of contaminated air and ensure the safety of your staff, breathing air should be tested at least every 3 months.


Our Breathing air quality testing services measure the content of Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Water, Oil Mist, and Oxygen along with checking the airflow, temperature, pressure, and relative humidity.
