Stack Emission Testing

Stack testing is our specialty. We have been growing and developing with the industry for nearly 40 years. When you need accurate, timely data, Ektimo delivers.

Whatever your industry; energy, mining, manufacturing or processing, Ektimo can service your stack testing and other emissions testing needs.

"Dependable, Versatile, Innovative"

We have the capacity to design testing equipment to suit the particular location.

Each project is assigned a Project Manager who is technically qualified and highly competent in emission testing. The Project Manager discusses your project needs, prepares quotations, schedules testing, handles all pre and post-test communications, coordinates the work of the test team and laboratory, and oversees the reporting effort.

“Clients always have direct and immediate access to the person responsible for their project, which enables us to consistently meet scheduling requirements and report deadlines.”

Ektimo normally carries out on-site assessment visits prior to monitoring. This enables checking for safe access and the adequate location of the sampling points. It is also important to ensure that monitoring work is scheduled for times when normal work, or production is under way.

Ektimo is accredited with the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for an extensive range of air emission testing methods, including the industry standard AS, USEPA and ISO methods.
