Fire laboratories perform different types of tests and experiments to analyze the characteristics of products and materials , when exposed to fire. Using these data , manufacturers can improve their products, fire resistance, and their longevity. Although the fire is controlled in a laboratory, many toxic substances are formed and these must be removed before the air is released into the environment. EnviBATs technology is extremely effective for this type of application. It eliminates the particles of all sizes, which also has the advantage that it eliminates the burning smell.

Compressed breathing air is subject to strict limits of harmful contaminants defined in European standard EN 12021 and various defence standards such as DEF STAN 68-284 issue 3. The testing interval of breathing air compressors and associated equipment is 3 months and gases tested include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oil vapour defined as hexane and heavier hydrocarbons. EN 12021 covers underwater applications including self-contained open circuit compressed gas breathing (SCUBA) and compressed gas line breathing (hard-helmet diving), respiratory equipment used on ground for escaping from toxic atmospheres and for working in contaminated atmospheres. It also covers breathing gas for hyperbaric operations and synthetic air. While EN 12021 does not cover aerospace applications, the British MOD publication DEF STAN 68-284 and its counterparts in other countries cover also the breathing gases used in aviation.
