Asbestos Fibre Identification in accordance with our UKAS accreditation and HSG 248.
Envirochem offers a competitive Asbestos Fibre Identification service returning results by email within 24 hours in most cases.
In the United Kingdom, the three most common forms of asbestos are chrysotile (white), amosite (brown) and crocidolite (blue). They are found in common building materials such as insulation board panels, spray coating, bonded cements, gaskets, insulation, textured coatings and vinyl flooring.
Samples can be delivered to our laboratory, or collected by our analysts.
An Asbestos Fibre Identification certificate is produced for each batch of samples analysed, which is available most commonly in PDF format via email.

The most commonly requested suite of water analysis is our effluent water suite. This includes suspended solids, ammonia and biological oxygen demand (BOD) and is often carried out on the inlet and outlet sections of water treatment systems to check the efficiency of the process.
In addition to tests required to satisfy Environment Agency (EA) guidelines, we can also accommodate testing requests to meet extra guidelines set by individual local authorities, such as testing for pH, metals, anions and organics. We can also look at the particle size of the suspended solid to determine the correct size of filter needed to remove it from the water.

Envirochem are pleased to announce that we have applied to expand our UKAS accreditation of metals in soil to include mercury, molybdenum, selenium, thallium and vanadium. The method used to produce this data combines our previously accredited microwave digestion method for lead and chromium in paint and accredited analysis using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry.
We can also analyse for metals in a range of other sample types including water, oil and concrete.

We were recently provided with samples for phosphine analysis, which had been sampled on a charcoal tube. We were able to employ a documented method, which used hydrogen peroxide to oxidise the phosphine to phosphate. This was then analysed using ion chromatography. A similar method has also been employed to analyse for sulphur dioxide and hydrogen sulphide.
