Ion Exchange Resin Performance and Quality Testing From Siemens

Ion Exchange resin testing helps determines the quality of your resin and can help to diagnose your water and wastewater system's operating problems.  Periodic testing of your resin helps to ensure that your system continues to operate optimally and efficiently.

Testing of your resin begins with gathering a sample.  Evoqua can either provide you with a resin sample kit for gathering the sample using your own site personnel, or if you prefer, we can also arrange for a service technician from one of our local branches to assist in the sampling process. 

In addition, Evoqua can also provide expert evaluation of new ion exchange products for your conventional and special liquid processing applications.

Standard Laboratory Resin Testing offered:

  • Ion Chromatography for both routine anion analysis in water and special analytical needs
