We provide solutions to businesses and industries that require clean water. We know how many industrial processes face challenges and even breakdown if their water supply is compromised. It’s just as important to us as it is to our customers to provide fast, precise answers to their questions about their water quality.

Our Bacteria Testing & Cleaning Kit

  • Easy-to-follow directions
  • FDA-approved chlorination agent
  • Post-chlorination test included at no charge
  • Gloves


oor-quality water can result in corrosion in many industrial settings. Cooling systems, circulating systems and boiler-feed systems can all avoid corrosion as well as scale formation when their water supply is high quality. Organic slime and sediment can also be avoided when water testing has pointed out the correct treatment needed before water enters the system.

With careful monitoring of the impurities in various streams, facility operators can proactively reduce damage from corrosion, deposits, and scaling. Regular industrial water testing is essential for quality control and process optimization across industry.


Here at ETR Labs, we work with a wide variety of businesses, government agencies, and academic and medical organizations to provide fast, accurate industrial testing. With both our testing and our consultations on the results, we have enabled industries to eliminate water issues that could affect their operations and the bottom line.

Areas we have successfully assisted in addressing include:

  • Unknown analysis
  • Reverse engineering
  • Resolving manufacturing process changes
  • Verifying product purity
  • Dialysis water


Our labs are state-of-the-art to provide you with the most accurate results possible. Our high-tech equipment includes:

  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer (NMR)
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM)
  • Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)
  • Endotoxin meter
  • Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)


Industrial water testing serves the needs of manufacturers, medical facilities, academic institutions and government agencies, all of whom have an interest in the quality of water used in their industry. We know that manufacturing processes and precise equipment of all types need to maintain certain standards of water quality to prevent health hazards, equipment damage or interference with manufacturing processes. In medical settings, for example, water testing is of particular importance, as water will be used in food preparation, cleaning surgical tools and hydrotherapy as well as dialysis. ETR Laboratories has a wide range of tests available to industries, depending on their needs. We can test for chlorine, sediment, pathogens, heavy metals, molds, alkalinity, volatile organic compounds or dozens of other contaminants. To initiate industrial water testing for your facility, please contact us.

When industrial water supplies are contaminated with trace sodium and transition metals, trace anions, chloride, sulfates or other minerals, the problems caused can be expensive. Scale may form on surfaces, slime can develop and equipment can be compromised. 

Any industry that relies on pure water supplies has a water treatment process in place. Regular testing is needed to ensure the effectiveness of the system. Failure to detect an inefficient water treatment system can lead to clogged lines, system corrosion, inaccurate temperature sensing and interference with your manufacturing processes. 

Our lab is outfitted with sophisticated testing equipment, including a scanning electron microscope, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS). We are dedicated to the accuracy of our tests for industries that rely on pure water for their processes. To start your industrial water testing, call us at 800.344.9977.

The exact costs of your tests depends wholly on the substances you need to detect. These needs vary greatly by industry. For example, our tests can advise you on the effectiveness of your water treatment facilities in removing organic slime or sediment, or the presence of any ionic impurities in boiler water, cooling water or condensate water in power plants. Please consult us about your industrial water testing needs. We can create a water testing package specific to your facility. Please contact us to get started.
