LEV Testing


Based in central Scotland EFS can offer a unique independent consulting service for all LEV equipment. Our first area of expertise is within workplace exposure, this is where airborne contaminates are exposed within the workplace and LEV equipment is used to contain these contaminates.

Within this range EFS can provide LEV thorough examination and testing, LEV Design, filter life validation, commissioning and balancing, servicing and repairs, staff training of use, compliance documentation for HSE or SEPA and along with consumables and spares.


Secondly we provide specialised solutions for the air filtration industry. Within manufacturing controlling contamination is essential, Our reliable air particle filtration products, protects the environment, purifies processes, increases profits and reduces crucial downtime for the plant.

As all these areas can be very costly to any of the industries which use dust collection systems. Such as cement, metals/ aluminium, food and beverage, paper pulp and woodwork, chemicals, powder coating, plasma cutting, sandblasting, textiles and much more industries.

EFS can help improve the performance of our customers’ filtration solution and ensure high return on investment.  We do so by acting as an extension of our customer’s engineering department.

Our strong technical team and extensive laboratory facilities allow us to provide a variety of services to our customers such as:

  • Standard Analytical Tests
  • Custom Tests
  • Mullen Burst Testing
  • Microscopic Photography
  • Particle Sizing

Our Standard Analysis includes:

  • Filter Service Life Testing (how much life is left in your filter)
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Failed Filter Analysis (Cause of Failure)
  • Contaminant Analysis (Type/amount/dust loading characteristics)

Our Prototype Design Testing tests all new designs thoroughly. Custom Tests include:

SEPA - Scottish Environmental Protection Agency

Transport, energy generation, industry, waste and agriculture can all affect air quality. Emissions to air can give rise to health problems, climate change, depletion of the ozone layer and changes to habitats.

Overall, air quality in Scotland has improved in recent decades and is generally good. However, there are still hotspot areas of poor air quality and concentrations of ground-level ozone – a potentially harmful secondary pollutant generated in the presence of sunlight – have increased.

SEPA regulate and monitor certain industrial activities in Scotland that can generate airborne pollution. This involves SEPA working with and directing local authorities and other partners to manage and improve air quality. SEPA also provide policy and operational advice to government, industry and the public on pollution control and other environmental issues.

In addition, SEPA work towards Scottish and UK objectives and targets set to address global climate change and the cross-border and international transport of pollutants.

PPC – Pollution Prevention and Control

The Pollution Prevention and Control (Scotland) Regulations 2012 (PPC 2012)came into force on 7 January 2013 to implement the requirements of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), as well as consolidating the Pollution Prevention and Control (Scotland) Regulations 2000 (PPC 2000).

The revisions aim to remove ambiguities and inconsistencies, ensure clearer environmental benefits, promote cost-effectiveness and encourage technological innovation.
