LEV Testing and Air Tracing
Why do you need LEV testing?
In the UK, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulation 9.2 requires all employers who use LEV techniques to test and examine the ventilating equipment every 14 months. This clarifies whether it is still up to the mark, or if it needs some tweaking. Over time, LEV systems tend to develop air pockets and clogs that have to be tested in order to eliminate.
Smodens’ smoke machines for LEV testing and air tracing
LEV testing identifies if there are any obstructions to the airflow in your ventilation systems. The best way to conduct LEV testing and air tracing is through a smoke machine. Smodens’ smoke generators produce dense, persistent smoke that spreads throughout the room and seeps into ventilation ducts to identify possible blockages. The plug and play technology of our smoke generators eliminate downtime and make them easy to operate.
The thick, pigmented fog from our smoke machine lurks long after it is disconnected from the source, allowing for precise clearance examination and airflow visualization. These fog machines are lightweight and easy to lug around. They guarantee longer output periods without compromising on efficiency.
Here’s why you should invest in Smodens’ smoke machines for LEV testing and air tracing:
- Easy tracking: Smodens’ smoke generators emit a pigmented and thick fog that can easily be traced. This allows you to clearly see the movement of air in the room, by observing how the smoke flows through the ventilation ducts. This way, any clogs or areas of concerns can be easily identified.
- Variable smoke: LEV testing generally demands thick, persistent smoke. This is because the flow of smoke has to be monitored over long distances and time periods, in order to identify possible loopholes within the ventilation system. While Smodens’ smoke generators excel in doing exactly that, they are equally capable of producing less dense, easily dispersible smoke if need arises.
- Built-in timer: For LEV testing, it is essential to measure the time taken by the extraction system to clear the area. For this purpose, Smodens’ smoke machines are equipped with a built-in auto-timer function with a digital remote that can be easily rehoused. This allows you to keep a track of the time elapsed for the ventilation system to clear the smoke out completely.
- Safe to use: Smodens’ smoke machines do not leave any foul, lingering smell and are safe to inhale. They leave no measurable residue or accumulation in your air ducts.
