LEV Testing services

LEV Testing is a quantitative test that measures whether an extraction system (Dust/vapour or fume) is providing adequate control of the hazards created by your processes, Testing is required by law at least every 14 months – sometimes less in some applications – and will indicate if your LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) is providing sufficient protection for workers or operators.
