Facilities

In June 2001, EMAX relocated to a new 27,000 square foot facility in Torrance, California. With the firm’s two prior laboratory facilities also located in Torrance, EMAX had extensive familiarity with the City of Torrance and Los Angeles County’s stringent environmental control ordinances and waste reduction mandates.

EMAX has learned over the past fifteen years that its Torrance location, within fifteen miles from the Los Angeles International Airport, offers “around the clock” accessibility to the nation’s common carriers, air freight, and United States Postal Service facilities for the expeditious shipment and receipt of samples from literally any point in the United States and abroad.

With the input of local regulatory and public works staff, our design architects, and senior management staff had the opportunity to develop and construct a true state-of the art physical plant that ranks among the largest and most well equipped laboratories of its type in the western United States. Our new laboratory has the following design features:

  • segregated volatiles laboratory with separate positive-pressure HVAC system
  • segregated extraction laboratory with separate negative flow HVAC system
  • space to extract up to 48 water samples per shift by continuous liquid-liquid extraction
  • separate room within the extraction laboratory for GPC, ACE and TCLP equipment
  • open design for all the semivolatile organics and non-volatiles/metals/wet chemistry
  • space of 7,000 square feet for up to 10 GCMS, 10 GC, 2 HPLC, 3 ICP, 2 Mercury analyzer, 2 GFAA, wet chemistry and other instruments
  • segregated rooms to extract and analyze samples with radioactivity


Facility Floor Plan

EMAX ’s current 27,000 square foot facility at 1835 205th Street, Torrance, CA 90501 was designed in full accordance with City of Torrance and other applicable building codes, USEPA and State of California guidelines, statutes and regulations relating to facilities handling hazardous, flammable, and/or radioactive materials, and all current standards relating to Good Laboratory Practice design criteria as promulgated by the USEPA. Primary concern in the design of this facility was an extremely high level of awareness relating to the health and safety of our employees, clients, and the community in which we work.
