Compressed breathing air quality testing is there to protect employers and employees.
All over Victoria compressed air is used in breathing applications where harsh working conditions exist. Moisture, carbon monoxide, oil and oil vapours can pose a threat to workers in industries including sandblasting, welding, powder coating, spray painting in automotive repairs, mining, underground and in confined spaces.
Compressed breathing air must conform to Australian Standards AS1715:2009, in some states an bi-annual or annual inspection is a requirement of Worksafe.
DS Filtration will undertake a comprehensive air sample test onsite testing:
Oxygen (O₂) Carbon Monoxide (CO)
Carbon Dioxide (CO₂) Oil
Relative Humidity Water Vapour.
The test takes approximately 15-20mins, each spray booth or airline requires a separate test. Discounts for additional tests at the same site location are applicable.
If the levels meet the Australian Standards, we then issue a certificate of compliance which indicates the Compressed breathing air quality is to Australian Standards AS1715:2009.
It is also recommended that any filters used in the breathing air system are regularly checked, replaced and maintained in good operating conditions - if you have any concerns about your breathing air filtration please ask us - we are here to help!
We recommend you get your air tested to make sure you and your staff are protected!
