Analytical Risk Assessment, atmospheric contamination

  • This illustration is taken from an article in New Scientist, during 2008.  It shows the relative proportions of 'Greenhouse' gases, generated by mankind.
Additional data suggest that mankind's contribution of Carbon Dioxide to the atmosphere is less than one eight-hundredth of that created by natural sources

Product Description

  • Using the latest (and some of the oldest) scientific techniques, we topically record and assay the atmosphere in working environemnts and  check the purity of compressed air, in services used for breathing air.

  • Records are maintained for five years following testing (in accordance with CoSHH Regulations) and levels of accuracy or other relevant recording tolerances are stated on your report, which remains client confidential.

  • Where required; recommendations are made, to mitigate impurities discovered and identified and so assist you to manage your environment and work-place.

  • Dependant on the task, there are several methods we use, from simple reagent and pH testing to spectrometry and gas chromotography.

Usually, customers require us to identify and quantify impurities in compressed air, as part of their regular, compressor maintenance programme.

The costings illustrated here are based on this task and represent one hour on site, which is usually adequate to record and analyse impurites from up to three air test points. Where more time is required, either through analytical complexity or from greater sampling scale, there is a further time charge of £49 per hour on site.

(The illustration we have used is taken from an article published in New Scientist, during 2008. It has nothing whatever to do with us analysing your topical risks but is an interesting abstraction of global data, showing the relative proportions of 'Greenhouse' gases, generated by mankind! Other data suggest that mankind's contribution of Carbon Dioxide to the atmosphere is less than one eight-hundredth of that created by natural sources).

  1. Supplier's CoSHH data was erroneous - Helios solved the problem

    Posted by Sue on 25th Nov 2012

    Thanks to Helios, we identified that our supplier's CoSHH data (de-greasing agent) was inaccurate and, in fact, had included chlorinated hydrocarbons.
    The error had caused Hydrochloric acid to be generated by our spot welding operations and some operatives had been affected by what at first seemed an inexplicable skin and mucosal disease.
    Helios analysed the welding smoke to discover its components parts contained Hydrochloric acid and then made useful recommendations how to amend production and material so that the problem was solved. Big thanks.


  2. Compressor problem enlightenment

    Posted by Brian on 22nd Nov 2012

    At our safe factory, compressed breathing air for face-masks is an essential safety need.
    Helios had regularly checked our air for contamination and there appeared a sudden elevation in Carbon Dioxide, which usually recorded around 250 ppm - suddenly rising to more than 800 ppm. What was of equal concern, was that Carbon Monoxide was also present.
    The Helios engineer assessed our compressors and found nothing untoward. Unwilling to leave matters, he asked permission to access our roof, where he discovered that recent changes to the roof line and an oven flue quite close to the compressor intakes, had caused the pollution.
    The flue stack was later amended by the contractor who had installed it below the specification required for roof elevations.
