Annual opacity inspections are not just a good idea, but enforced by law in California. We offer opacity testing on-site, run by our certified technicians.
Technicians provide accurate service and up-to-date knowledge of opacity testing requirements. We use a Wager smoke system, nationally accepted and used for its accuracy. When the smoke meter is activated, the transmitter emits a light beam at a known intensity. As the light passes through the smoke plume, some or all of the light is diverted.
The sensor head consists of two components: a light source (transmitter) and a light detector (receiver). The light detector measures the amount o flight received, and compares this with the amount of light being emitted. The difference between the two values is opacity.
