Chemical Analysis

Determining the exact composition of material can be critical for many industries and to operation of large plant.

Also important is knowing the composition of, and identifying the presence and level of any contaminants. This may include a spectrum of substances from water, effluent, water treatment chemicals, deposits, materials, minerals, food, organic compounds, waste products, glass and raw materials and polymers. Expert chemical analysis may be required to identify the exact composition and ensure that critical issues are controlled.
