FREE Indicative Oil and Air Quality Testing

To raise awareness of the importance of regularly checking the effectiveness of oil filtration and mist extraction systems for both productivity and employee health, we are currently offering free indicative oil and air quality testing.

Productivity - Are your fluids and filtration systems working as effectively as when they were new? We'll test their performance so you can check they are still running effectively and giving you the performance you expect.

Health - Exposure to cobalt and oil mist particles can cause a number of serious skin and lung diseases such as allergic dermatitis, asthma and other respiratory problems (e.g.‘heavy metal lung’) that, in their worst cases, can lead to an early death. We’ll check if your oil filtration and mist extraction systems are working effectively and helping reduce the risk of a hazardous working environment for you and your workers.

The Testing - Using our specialist equipment, one of our trained service engineers will carry out a short visit to your premises to assess the level of particles found in your workshop air and take some samples of your coolant, which will be analysed by our laboratory for:

  • the presence and nature of any contaminants (e.g. tramp oil, cobalt);

  • performance indicators of the fluid including viscosity, foaming, density, acidity and flash point.

Report - Following the testing you will receive a report detailing our findings and any suggestions for enhancing safety and productivity we may find.

For more information or to book your test, call us on 01745 814 777

P.S. Please let us know if there’s anything in particular you would like us to look at when booking your test so we can plan to bring additional equipment, if required. We are always happy to have a no-obligation chat about any issues you may be experiencing.
