The HSE (Health & Safety Executive) recommend that an LEV monitor (indicator) should be fitted to all LEV (local exhaust ventilation systems to provide indication of sufficient air flows.
Any LEV system installed will be designed to ensure that any airborne contaminants are safely removed, however, the improper use or maintenance of such a system can cause health risks for anyone working in the area. Installing a LEV monitor makes the worry and risk of having an unsafe working environment a thing of the past.

How to LEV Monitors Work?
The LEV monitor can be supplied as either a ‘direct’ or ‘Remote Mount’ solution. Fixing the monitor directly to the duct provides a compact anti-tamper solution with no accessible hoses or probes. For applications where space is limited, the remote mount monitor can be located remotely as is provided with a duct-fixing kit, including a hose and spigot.
Once the LEV monitor has been secured into place and two AA batteries have been inserted, a static cross will displace to indicate that calibration is complete. The LEV system should be balanced to ensure that the airflow rates meet the minimum requirements for the specific system and calibration is as straight forward as pressing a button.
Following calibration, the LEV monitor will display an animated arrow, accompanied by an ultra-bright green LED to provide assurance that the system is operating correctly and safely. If the air flow rates drop below the set threshold, the LEV monitor will display a flashing cross accompanied by a red LED to advise that action needs taking.
IT also comes with a built-in timer to advise that the LEV system is due it’s annual LEV test. The timer can be easily adjusted to 3, 6 or 14 months. We strongly recommend that the batteries are replaced each time the LEV system is inspected.
With a range of 2,000 Pa, the LEV monitor is suitable for use with most LEV systems and is an added safety feature, a minimum set point of 100 Pa is in place to ensure that the system cannot be calibrated when the system is not running.
