Commercial Diving Compressed Air Testing

Easy to Use

The AirCheck Kit™ is compact, lightweight, and holds multiple sampling containers for testing your compressed air source. It’s ready to go wherever your job takes you. No bulky containers to return; and since you own the sampling hardware, there are no onerous external deadlines to return the sampling kit. The only thing you have to return is a three ounce air sample when you have completed your compressed air quality test.

Did we mention how fast we are?

Our standard turnaround time could possibly be the fastest available. And if that’s not fast enough, we can perform a rush air analysis for an additional fee. You get the sample to us and we’ll have the results back to you the same day! If your project is at a standstill, with thousands of dollars on the line – divers out of the water and thousands of dollars on the line, the AirCheck Lab can help you with your OSHA or Corps of Engineers compressed air quality requirements.
