    How does Air analysis work? Also any contacts to affordable Air analysis in Europe?

    How does air analysis work?

    Is there a "self testing" kit you can buy with some cartridges which can tell you have pumped with your compressor grade E or OCA air for example? So that you can test every couple of months is your compressor giving the quality you need?

    What would be the pricing if you know something like that?

    In general what is the most affordable way to test your air?


    Alternative, companies to which you send the air sample (and how?) in Europe? And if you know the pricing?


    Thank you!

    In general you get a sampling kit from a lab, you fill it and send it back to the lab. I know of one lab in Ireland but that's about it for that side of the Atlantic. I don't know the cost over there.

    I borrow a test kit made by sabre safety, it blows a calibrated air flow through a test tube. Tests for CO, CO2 water and oil. (4 tubes, disposable, about £3 each)

    In our diving club we use Dräger Aerotest
    http://www.draeger.com/sites/en_uk/P...multan-HP.aspx


    Contact your local representant for price.


    Test tubes are not that expensive, aprox 3 EUR each, and you use four different tubes for each test ( H2O, CO, CO2 and oil).


    It is very simple to use, brake of the test tubes and put them in the tester. Attach tester to a bottle or direkt to compressor. Let the air run throug the tester for 10 minutes. Then you can read the result direktly on each tube. If you attach directly to compressor, it is important to let it run for some time in order to get a correct result.

    I've sent a mail to Drager in Croatia, got an offer for the devices of 2000€.

    Suffice to say, I was hoping for something not so expensive

    Way too expensive, knock the last zero off that 2000 number then half it and you about right for the Draeger hand pump about £90

    http://www.draeger.com/sites/en_uk/P...mp-accuro.aspx

    Tubes are about £3 each but are packed in 10 per box you need CO, CO2, Oil and water vapour
    You need to know exactly what type of oil your using also the number of pumps and the tubes vary.

    Forget the Yankee grade E and OSHA nonsence the regulations you need to achieve and maintain are BSEN 12021 air purity
    Testing every six months or 3 months if you use the 10 off stain tubes with a 2 year shelf life and cant find a friend to share them with
