    Independent particle characterization services for environmental industries

    Particle size, particle concentration and other physical characterization analyses are critical to many environmental applications. Regulatory agencies in the environmental sphere demand strict compliance to standards and discharge regulations. Physical testing of samples for parameters such as particle size and concentration can give insight to the process control engineer on how effective and compliant a discharge handling system is operating. Particulate loading from both air emissions and waste water discharge...
