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
Chemical purity of water is assessed for a wide variety of different chemicals depending on the type of water and applicable local legislation.
Chemical analysis of water can include testing for nitrogen compounds, dissolved heavy metals, and total and dissolved organic carbon.
Common water monitoring applications include:
Determination of suspended solids in waterusing for example glass fiber filters.
Chemical analyses of for example heavy metals, dissolved organic carbons (DOC), and ions.
The coating and finishing of surfaces using electroplating techniques is a highly sophisticated process. Be it the finishing of metal parts or the coating of printed circuit boards, the quality required in the intermediate and end products is only achieved if the composition of the process baths is right. At the same time, rising costs of raw materials and energy make it absolutely essential to drive production as efficiently as possible. As a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis we know...
Got oil on metal? Need to test parts for oil residue to ensure the parts are clean and oil free? Sitelab's analyzers are easy to use or send samples to Sitelab for laboratory analysis. Samples are extracted in solvent using test kits available. Wipe samples can also be tested.
Companies involved in mineral extraction, metal work and other mining activities have recently begun to understand the necessity for controlling their processes with robust testing, monitoring and process risk assessments. While many laboratories in this sector still run Excel sheets for data management, others understand the role of LIMS for measuring staff safety, improving productivity and adhering to regulation.
Maxxam provides the mining industry with comprehensive analytical testing services including water, soil and air quality parameters. Analytical testing ranges from metal leaching and acid rock drainage, to Ecotoxicology services and environmental chemistry. We are accredited for specific analytical tests related to mining test regulations and requirements. Along with being accredited for tests such as environmental chemistry and acid mine drainage, below is an excerpt of the laboratory’s current scope of accreditat...
