A wide variety of products that are used in our indoor environments may emit harmful substances, raising health and safety concerns in homes, offices, public places and vehicles. There is increasing demand to reduce VOC emissions from indoor sources, backed by European legislation. REACH regulation is a European initiative for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances. It was implemented to protect human health and the environment from harmful emissions of chemicals into the air we breathe. The REACH regulation places the responsibility on manufacturers and importers to test their products and provide safety information to the purchaser, end user or consumers.

Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.
Common air monitoring applications include:
- Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
- Asbestos sampling and analysis

CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) are generally measured to ensure process control. CO2 is the desired product and CO is undesired in combustion since it will explode in high enough concentrations. CO2 and CO concentrations can also be used to determine other process-specific efficiencies. Continuous emissions monitoring equipment that can be calibrated as a CO and CO2 analyzer is thereby essential for process control.

Engine and vehicle emissions testing involves complex routines and audit regimes to meet with exacting modern legislation. The methods for measuring gases are also prescribed by the relevant authority and so you might imagine that the equipment for emissions testing is all the same. Signal take a different approach to our competitors. By designing bespoke systems from a selection of standard modules, we supply all the equipment and features you require, but nothing that you don`t. This makes our systems the most cost effective solution, particularly when upgrading or for non-standard combination testing
