Since that time Apex Emission Testing has steadily grown to become one of the leading stack emission compliance monitoring "test houses" in Southern Africa.
Apex Emission Testing prides itself on accurate, impartial emissions testing, and atmospheric emissions reports that are compiled to meet not only the requirements of the Air Quality Act, but client's emissions abatement programme requirements too.
All of our sampling equipment is regularly and routinely calibrated as per ISO17025, SANAS, methodological and/or manufacturer requirements.
All staff members remain abreast of technological, methodological and legal advances through on-going training, seminar attendance, in-house personal development programmes and membership of professional registration bodies.
Air Quality Services and Compliance Monitoring
Isokinetic Sampling Services (Particulates, Aerosols and Mists)
Apex Emission Testing utilises US EPA Sampling Methodology to accurately determine concentrations and mass flow rates for any of the following process, or combustion, related parameters:
- Temperatures and Pressures (static and velocity),
- Stack gas molecular weight,
- Stack gas moisture content,
- Volumetric flow rates.
Concentrations and mass flows of:
- Acids (Organic and Inorganic),
- Dioxins and Furans (PCDD/PCDF),
- Metals (Antimony (Sb), Arsenic (As), Barium (Ba), Beryllium (Be), Cadmium (Cd), Chromium (Cr), Cobalt (Co), Copper (Cu), Lead (Pb), Manganese (Mn), Mercury (Hg), Nickel (Ni), Phosphorus (P), Selenium (Se), Silver (Ag), Thallium (Tl), Zinc (Zn))
- Oil Mists (Vegetable, Mineral etc.),
- Particulates (PM2.5, PM10 and Total PM)
Non-isokinetic Sampling Services (Gases and vapours)
