Breathing Air Quality Testing

F6000 Safe-Air Tester

If you are using compressed air as breathing air you have a legal requirement to regularly test the breathing air quality to ensure the health and safety of your employees. At Air Energy, we offer comprehensive breathing air quality testing.

Air Energy engineers can carry out breathing air testing, providing you with the relevant certificates to assure compliance with international standard BS EN 12021.

Requirements are specified in the standard for acceptable levels of oxygen, lubricants, oil, odour, taste, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and water content in compressed breathing air.

Together these are called Volatile organic compounds or VOCs. We check for these VOCs in our quality compressed breathing air testing process. The image to the right shows what we test for and the acceptable levels.

Breathing air testing frequency

In the UK, EN12021 advises that air quality testing and monitoring of samples should be taken and analysed at least every three months or more frequently if there has been a change in, or any concerns relating to, the production process, including if any air compressors have been moved.

Anything that may change the compressed air quality should be tested for health and safety.

Our equipment confirms the air purity in accordance with the latest BS EN 12021 requirements. You’ll receive the information you need about the quality of your breathing air to ensure you are compliant.

At Air Energy, we offer testing of the full range of organic compounds required to receive the relevant certificates for your workplace to assure compliance with international standard BS EN 12021.
