PRICING FOR CERTIFIED BREATHING AIR TESTING

       HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEMS 

       MEDIUM AND LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS

$290 - Price for Quarterly Program if you own a sampling kit (applies to any pressure system) These prices include all tests required for Grade E specifications AND rental of the AQL TEST KIT for collection of your compressed air source. NO initial capital expenditure is required to buy the sample collection kit, however, the kit is available for purchase. Purchasing and having the kit on hand may be desirable if; you require immediate sampling, you sample multiple locations throughout a given month, or you sample at a frequency greater than quarterly. In these situations it is more economical to purchase the sampling kit. For must clients, however, who have established a routine monitoring program of quarterly or less frequent it is more cost effective to use the AQL rental kit. If you already own another labís sampling kit, contact AQL to discuss conversion options. It may be possible to convert the kit for use with the technically advanced AQL gastight sampling syringe system. This will allow you to take advantage of the superior AQL collection system and lower AQL analytical testing fees.
