Air Pollution Testing
Perfect Pollucon Services Offers Services in Air Pollution Testing for Companies from Various Industries.
Importance of Air Quality Monitoring & Testing
Once pollutants are emitted into the air, they are influenced by weather conditions. Weather all around the world is extremely variable. Only studying air pollution is not adequate to estimate air quality. Also, air pollution is very complicated in terms of pollutants and their effects on buildings and roads.
This is where air quality monitoring comes into the picture. We can utilize air emissions monitoring to measure the types and concentrations of pollutants, enabling us to further analyze and interpret the data. We can use this information to take actions based on trends.
It can also help us to determine which areas in the country are more pollutants, which type of pollutants are increasing relating to industrial pollution and traffic.
Air quality data can be used in many ways like what will be the % drop in pollution if traffic reduced by 50%. It can also answer questions like can we open a new industrial plant near the city and what will be its impact on air quality near the city or in an industry.Follow @PerfectPollucon
Air Quality Monitoring or Testing Procedure
Before starting air monitoring or air testing on-site there is some background information required of the sources/emissions, health and demographic information, meteorological data, topographical information and previous air quality monitoring information. It helps to decide whether to increase or decrease monitoring locations based on previous readings.
Air quality testing and monitoring are done in areas where pollution problem exists and it is expected e.g. Companies Premises, Industrial area, traffic intersection.
It is good to conduct Air Pollution Testing program in order to get annual average sampling as pollutants behave in each season differently. It recommended that in a year 104 Air emissions monitoring of 24 hrs. i.e. twice a week.
Also, instruments used in Air Pollution Testing must be well maintained and calibrated. Also the laboratory should be nearby from the air quality monitoring site to avoid loss due to incorrect handling in transportation.

Air Quality Monitoring Parameters
As per the notification by pollution control board Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxide NO2, Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) & Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM / PM10) are important pollutants to monitor.
Also, Monitoring of meteorological parameters like wind direction, speed, humidity and temperature should be integrated part of air emissions monitoring.
Types of Air Pollution Monitoring & Testing
It can be divided into three parts:
- Ambient air quality monitoring & Testing
- Indoor air quality monitoring & testing
- Stack emission monitoring & testing
There is also Industrial air quality testing available which includes ambient and indoor air quality monitoring for Industrial premises.
Industrial Air Quality Monitoring & Testing from Air Quality Specialist
The company can conduct industrial air quality testing or air pollution monitoring within its premises to ensure that workers are not exposed to harmful gases in the workplace, including chemical, physical, and biological hazards. This hazards can affect the health of employees and may prone to lost man-hours and additional cost. We can reduce potential exposure risks by identifying and recognizing gases and their characteristic.
Under industrial Air quality testing we can:
- Measurement of exposure
- Name and amount of presence in the atmosphere
- Health hazards
- The solution to minimizing exposure
- Determine the effectiveness of implemented controls
Air Quality Testing Laboratory
Perfect Pollucon Services operates as a well-known Air Quality Testing laboratory in India. It offers services in Air Quality for the corporate to maintain and improve air quality.
Air Quality Assessment
Air quality impact assessment is an method to measure the relative concentration of atmospheric pollutants at given time and location. An air quality specialist conducts air quality assessment to measure various parameters such as humidity, temperature, noise, lighting, etc. Employers can conduct air quality assessment in office premises for the health of their employees
Air Quality Monitoring Construction Site
Globally construction activities have increased exponentially in recent times resulting in high Air pollution.
Lets see how construction activities contribute pollution:
- Excavation: Drilling and mining activities generate Particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) along with other pollutants Sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides and HCs
- Increase in Particulate matter (PM) from loading and unloading cement and sand from trucks
- Demolition at construction site emits Particulate matter, noise pollution due to heavy machineries, movement of vehicles to carry waste
- Activities like cutting marbles, woods, steel, bricks, etc. releases Particulate matter in atmosphere and can impact lives nearby
It is very important to carry our Air quality monitoring at construction site to understand top sources of air pollution and use measures to control pollution. Important to perform air quality monitoring before construction actually begins to establish base line data for comparison post construction commencement.
It is also important to monitor temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, to understand rate of movement of dust created from construction activities.
Once we receive the air quality testing data, we can employ measures like water sprinkling to suppress the movement of dust to nearby areas. Recently few companies managed to automate it using Online Air quality Monitoring system and setting few rules to when to activate water canon in which direction to control dust movement.
