Chemical laboratory

The Chemical Laboratory provides research and measurement services and produces gas mixtures both at Customers from the mining industry, as well as all those who want to benefit from highly specialized staff, technical and laboratory facilities and extensive experience of the company.

The reliability and competence of the laboratory are confirmed by meeting the requirements of PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-02  and two accreditations certificates issued by the Polish Centre for Accreditation – AB 1584 for research laboratory and the AP 028 for calibration laboratory.

Continuous improvement of the effectiveness of the management system, research methodologies and techniques developed over many years, as well as experienced and qualified staff allow us to maintain a high level of services. This is confirmed by the positive results of national and international interlaboratory comparisons and numerous references letters issued by our customers from the mining industry, as well as industrial partners.

Chemical Laboratory is also a member of the POLLAB club. Participation in the research club enables the exchange of experiences between laboratories and the exploration of specialist knowledge, which directly contributes to the improvement of laboratory work.

We invite you to contact us and get acquainted with the laboratory’s offer.

TESTING OFFER IN THE RANGE OF ACCREDITATION01

In the scope of PCA accreditation No. AP 028, laboratory performs measurements
of standard gas mixtures, reference materials (4.01) containing:

  • oxygen in the gas mixture,
  • carbon dioxide in the gas mixture,
  • carbon oxide in the gas mixture,
  • methane in the gas mixture,
  • hydrogen in the gas mixture,
  • ethene in the gas mixture,
  • ethane in the gas mixture.

In the scope of PCA accreditation No. AB 1584, laboratory measures the content of gaseous components in air samples, mine air samples, mine gas samples, technical gas mixtures in order to determine the content of:

  • methane,
  • carbon monoxide,
  • nitrogen,
  • carbon dioxide,
  • oxygen,
  • hydrogen,
  • ethane,
  • propane,
  • ethylene.                                                                                                                                                                                       Gas chromatography and conductometric methods are used to determine the composition of gas mixtures in the laboratory. A detailed list of our laboratory’s tests can be found in the “ACCREDITATION RANGE” tab.
