Our highly trained and skilled emergency spill response team deploys to 1-2 mercury spills per month. Trying to handle this type of spill without proper training and equipment creates significantly greater risk of exposure.
Liquid mercury typically scatters into thousands of tiny droplets once it is spilled. The larger the quantity spilled, the more mercury vapor is generated. This vapor has a time-weighted average exposure limit (TLV) of 0.025 mg/cm3, making it one of the more hazardous substances we clean up. Due to its reliability and capacity to monitor low levels, we maintain Lumex Mercury Vapor Meters, the preferred instrument for residential and commercial mercury exposure monitoring.
Lumex Mercury Vapor Meter Info
We use this instrument to provide real-time data on mercury vapor. It's considered the "gold standard" for measuring minute amounts of vapor in the air and ensures that cleanup has been properly completed. Facilities for whom we typically perform such services include:
- Hospitals & clinics
- Private residences
- Community & technical colleges
- Public & private schools
- Industrial facilities
