Imission Tests

Imission Tests

All kinds of gases and particles in the air, inhaled and measurable are called imissions. The major air pollutants found outdoors in major cities are carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, suspended particulates and lead. In addition, the amount of toxic substances in the air, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), is increasing.

The main tests carried out by laboratories in this context are: measurement of air quality (air quality), determination of airborne particulate matter (dust), measurement and analysis of precipitated dust and air quality modeling.

Dust measurements in the environment are important in the enterprises that work with dusty substances, where filling, sieving, separating, crushing, conveying and grinding operations are performed. Dust measurements in the environment (PM10) are especially important in mines, ready-mixed concrete companies, crushing and screening plants, cement factories and enterprises where dusty substances are stored.

Particulate substances have serious effects on human health and climate change. These substances represent a mixture of organic and inorganic substances. The particulate matter is an air pollutant consisting of liquid or solid mixtures of air or powder mixtures which can be suspended in either case. The effects are different according to their size, composition and sources. PM10 particulate matter is coarse particles that can reach people's upper airways and lungs, and their aerodynamic diameter is smaller than 10 μm.

People spend most of their time indoors. However, particulate matter measurements are usually made outdoors. This is an important shortcoming.

During the environmental test studies, the current legal regulations and the relevant standards published by many domestic and foreign organizations are taken into consideration. In line with the needs of enterprises, our company conducts imission tests within the framework of environmental tests.

In the meantime, our company complies with the TS EN ISO / IEC 17025 Standard for the Adequacy of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. From ÖSAS Accreditation Agency has been accredited and serves within this framework.
