Visual screening of sample to identify asbestos contamination.
Representing a potential issue within the water
industry and the built environment as a whole, it may
be necessary to identify the type and concentration
of potential contaminants within many types of water
and effluent samples.
Landfill Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) testing
WAC testing is used to determine how a waste will
behave once buried in a landfill. This is carried out
through analysis of leachate derived from the waste
during laboratory analysis.
The Built Environment
Within many industries across the world there
remains a need to identify and understand the
composition of many types of material.
Artisan Surveyors offers a comprehensive soil sampling and analysis service. Soil samples can be collected individually or as part of a wider survey and be analysed for their asbestos content.
Past analysis of soils tended to focus mainly on the type of asbestos present within the soil, however when working
on contaminated land projects it is also important to understand the amount of asbestos present within the
soil, and how this relates to occupational exposure of operatives at the work face, and the subsequent
determination of the most appropriate removal, disposal or re-use arrangements.
Qualitative and Quantitative analysis for asbestos in soils is carried out in 3 stages:
