Laboratory Services

AWC® laboratory has the capability to conduct water analysis and membrane antiscalant projections for Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration systems. AWC® can also conduct chemical dosage determinations for our antiscalants, coagulants, and flocculants. At our laboratory, we can also synthesize identical water chemistries for clients experiencing extreme scaling or inorganic fouling conditions to determine optimal pretreatment and control limits.
Our cutting edge Research and Development Department dedicates significant resources to understanding complex scaling phenomena. Our research has been presented at conferences and published in scientific journals. Since our start, we’ve developed into an independent operation providing membrane chemicals and autopsy services to water treatment plants around the world.

Materials Characterization

Our material characterization lab can analyse any unknown deposit found throughout your water treatment process.  Using our advanced analytical equipment, we identify deposits on everything from your SDI pads and cartridge filters to degasifier and scrubber media.

We are proud to state that AWC® is one of the only companies that will fully categorize the deposits as opposed to simply providing a list of elements and their percentages.

Water Analysis

We perform all water analysis at our facility using state-of-the-art Inductively Coupled Plasmas (ICP), Ion-Chromatography (IC), and Spectrophotometry equipment.  Our water analysis includes all inorganic scale forming salts as well as contaminants that are targets for removal by RO.  Sampling at multiple points allows us to perform a mass balance to ensure that your flow meters are in calibration and that you are operating at the correct recovery.
