Industrial Testing

Solutions: Business and Industry

Clean water is important to industry. Different industrial processes experience particular challenges with their supply and maintenance. For example, water used for cooling needs to resist corrosion and be free from organic slime and sediment. Circulating systems often experience fouling and corrosion problems that require chemical treatment. Boiler-feed water requires an especially high quality to prevent corrosion and scale formation. 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.

ETR Laboratories works with a wide variety of business, government, academic and medical organizations to provide industrial testing and to resolve issues that affect their operations. Areas we have successfully assisted in resolving include:

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

ETR Labs has the latest high-tech equipment to test industrial water, including:

  • 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)

If you have questions regarding any issues affecting your operations which you believe may be resolved by chemical and/or biochemical analysis, contact the laboratory at (800) 344-9977 or
