Scientific and Laboratory
Many of our process customers have in house laboratories and full time laboratory staff working with their engineers to further develop new techniques and processes.
As our measurement and control equipment is often used on the industrial production side we're often tasked with supplying laboratories with our pH, Redox, Conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen and Temperature measurement equipment, for laboratory usage.
As with our instrumentation and sensors designed for industrial usage, our equipment for laboratory usage maintains our principle on providing reliable, accurate and repeatable measurements, to ensure that the tests taken in the laboratory can be as accurate as possible so that an error can be eliminated before taking to a trial or scaled proposition.
In addition to providing the electrochemical sensors and instrumentation, our service engineers are also able to provide laboratory calibration services. Following each calibration the instrumentation can be issued with a calibration certificate which is traceable to national standards.
We understand the importance of properly calibrated and accurate laboratory testing equipment and part of our service is ensuring that both laboratory and field measurements are as accurate as possible.
Working with one of our manufacturing customers who produce high quality products in a highly pH sensitive environment, we were asked to provide pH controllers and Conductivity Controllers for pH correction and solution strength control on their industrial processing.
With changes to environmental regulations, some chemical reagents were approaching their sunset date and we were asked to assist with the development of a new technique with a replacement chemical reagent. As the effluent treatment was critical to the customers consent to discharge agreement, we worked closely with the them to develop laboratory versions of our field equipment, to ensure harmony between the laboratory testing and what was currently in place in the processing vessels.
The very clever chemists at the customers facility concluded that the new processing technique was viable, and having used the same instrumentation in the laboratory environment as the field environment, the customer was able to quickly initiate trials at scale, allowing them to work towards full compliance with the law.
