Contaminants from gases to vapours and particulates such as dust and fibres can be extremely harmful and sometimes deadly to those who inhale them. As a result, the level of exposure to these hazardous substances must be monitored with air sampling equipment to protect workers. As all our equipment is owned, maintained, and calibrated in-house, we are a trusted provider to many industries, including air sampling companies.
Types of Contaminants in Air Sampling
As airborne contaminants in a workplace can present significant health and safety issues for workers, identification, and quantification of these contaminants via air monitoring assessments are an essential component of any health and safety program. Contaminants that can be tested for can be classed into three main categories based on their physical properties:
Particulates – particulate matter is further subdivided into 6 types consisting of aerosols, dust, fumes, smokes, mist and fibres.
Vapours – gaseous phase of a substance that usually exists as a liquid or solid at normal room temperature and pressure.
Gases – a substance that usually exists as a liquid or solid at normal room temperature and pressure.
