Information : Indoor Air Quality
The Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant offers on-site surveys and indoor air quality (IAQ) analyses for flue gas, cooling-tower water quality, sick-building syndrome, and hazardous work environments. The IAQ team consists of biologists, chemists, American Chemical Society-certified technicians, and a certified industrial hygienist. This diverse staff’s credentials include averaging 23 years of experience; authoring more than 125 technical publications; holding two patents for mass spectrometry environmental analysis; and winning the R&D Magazine I-R 100 Award for innovative development work on the Fourier transform infrared (IR) mass spectrometer.
With a fully EPA-accredited laboratory, the IAQ team uses state-of-the-art field instruments and mass spectrometers to measure various substances such as CO, NO, NOx, radon, asbestos, lead, microbes, dust, and volatile organic compound emissions. In addition, the IAQ team can efficiently identify IAQ problems; develop practical, cost- effective plans for solutions; address worker health and safety concerns; reduce the possibility of IAQ-related work disruptions; and minimize potential liability.
