Environmental, pollution, and climatic changes have made it necessary for bottled and packaged water to be thoroughly tested so that it meets statutory requirements.
Our water testing lab in Chennai carries out various tests to check the physical, chemical, and microbiological analysis of water to desired specifications. These adhere to all the guidelines laid down in this regard.
Here are some of the tests done at our water analysis centre in Chennai to ensure that the standards of drinking and other forms of water are adequate
This can show the rate of a biochemical reaction. When the water temperature is too high, it decreases organisms' ability to resist particular pollutants.
This measures the acidity of water. Most organisms can only survive within a pH range of 6 to 8.
The chloride levels of water can be raised because of minerals and industrial activity, so it is important to check this parameter.
Salts dissolved in water are measured with this test, especially for groundwater. It is also a measure to determine what will happen to topsoil if the water table rises.
This is done to check the amount of particulate matter that is present in the water. Clarity and purity are both affected by this.
This is done to determine the level of pesticides in water that may have crept in due to the ground being treated with heavy fertilisers, for example.
A metal test is important, and a rather critical one at that, as it determines the presence of harmful and or toxic metals, such as antimony, zinc, or mercury. It is, of course, imperative that the water meant for drinking be free of such contaminants.
Our FSSAI recognized testing lab offer a wide range of water testing services for drinking water, bottled water, and many more.
