AIR TESTING FOR AN EFFICIENT PRODUCTION SYSTEM
Implementing dust control devices such as spark detection, abort gates, backflow preventers, fans, dust collectors, and other components installed in your facility is simply not enough to ensure an efficient production system - proper maintenance and care of the installed systems is also required.
Why You Should Consider an Air Test
- Air testing plays a large role in the requirements that ensures that the airspeed and volumes within the ductwork of your systems are to the design parameters required to safely move the materials. This also prevents plugging as well any explosive risk due to incorrect volumes.
- Air testing is a primary way to identify the toxins or debris that employees may be exposed to and machines might be collecting. It also helps determine the fire risk in your facility by pinpointing the amount and size of dust and debris in the atmosphere.
- Air testing in an industrial facility is critical because of the wide range of pollutants that might be present in the air. Dust and mold are often a constant threat but in manufacturing - harmful and volatile organic compounds are also very common.
- Smoke and fumes from machinery, disinfectants, paints, varnishes, formaldehyde, and asbestos are frequent toxins found in an industrial setting.
The Air Testing Process
- Air testing in an industrial facility is accomplished by both monitoring and evaluation. Devices can be installed that will detect a harmful presence in real time. Air samples can be captured and tested to give a more definitive answer as to what type of pollutants may be inhabiting your facility’s air supply.
- Preventive maintenance and monitoring the systems to ensure that these items are working correctly and documentation of this maintenance is part of the compliance required by NFPA.
