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.

Demolition and construction projects release a combination of dust and bio-contaminants which are irritating and potentially harmful. The dust generated during these projects must be contained and captured. Depending on the risk assessment, HEPA air scrubbers can be used to purify air at a work area or negative pressure containment. HEPA negative air machines can be used to prevent the spread of dust and other contaminates to the outside area. The air filtration equipment, pressure monitors, and purifiers for bio-contaminants are briefly described below with interactive links to more detailed information.
In June 2002 an Al-Qaeda cell was captured in Rome just before they poisoned the water supply of the US Embassy. This event demonstrates the added risk that government buildings, military contractors, royal palaces and other high-security facilities can encounter. These facilities should not trust an outside company to deliver bottled water, but instead must stay in full control of their own water supply at all times. Our secure drinking water systems are in over 100 US Embassies around the world because they provide a consistent supply of fresh, distilled water, which is the highest level of protection against the full range of possible contaminants. We provide premium water distillers for these high-security facilities as well as small systems to protect the staff at home. We also provide risk assessment and water education services.

Containment and safety issues are a critical consideration when working on any mold remediation or abatement projects. Improperly contained, the dust and bio-contaminants released can, be very harmful for both on-site workers and occupants in neighboring areas. Exactly how you approach your containment and capture solutions will depend on the individual site’s risk assessment report. If you need help identifying solutions to the issues raised in the report, feel free to contact our customer service department and we can review your options together. In most cases, however, there are four common considerations that will be relevant: Meeting Containment and Air Change Requirements. Monitoring of Containment Pressure. Sterilization of Filtered Air. Removal of Odors, Mold Spores, VOC’s and other Airborne Bio-Contaminates.
In 1985, the University of Surrey in collaboration with Oxfam developed the Oxfam DelAgua Portable Water Quality Monitoring Test Kit. The Oxfam DelAgua kit enables field workers to test water quality in remote and isolated situations and in circumstances where there is no access to a water testing laboratory. Since its development in 1985, the water test kit has been used by all the major International NGO-s and other aid agencies in over 130 countries around the world.
In 2006, The University of Surrey and other investors founded DelAgua Water Testing Limited to take over the management of the DelAgua organisation. Since then, various improvements have been made, including:
- The upgrading of all kits
- The upgrade of the design, manufacturing and distribution functions
- R&D to produce a portable microbiological testing kit that provides quantitative results in less than 20 minutes.
- The upgrade of existing services and the introduction of new services, including:
- Free access to a water quality risk assessment software program on DWT`s website
- Free access to a library of reference documents on DWT`s website
In addition to distributing its own kits and consumables, DWT also offers a distribution service for other manufacturers` products. The most popular products are detailed on this website, but those not detailed can also be supplied - DWT is able to source in excess of 60,000 products from numerous manufacturers.
DWT is committed to providing services and products to enable the provision of clean drinking water for everyone around the world.
