Water Analytics Inc.
Aquametrix has been manufacturing state-of-the-art, durable and cost effective water quality analysis equipment for over 50 years. Its roots date back to the differential pH/ORP probe that was developed for the Canadian market from the original Great Lakes patent. Over the years the company added probes for pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and flow. Two generations of controllers cemented the Aquametrix reputation as the manufacturer of instrumentation for the harshest of environments. In 2010 Aquametrix changed ownership and moved to the United States as the sole product line of the newly formed Water Analytics name. Under this new ownership Aquametrix continues to add instrumentation that exemplifies the hallmark characteristics of durability, precision and simplicity.
Aquametrix products are used extensively in the following industries:
- Municipal Water Treatment
- Municipal Sewage Treatment
- Industrial Water Treatment (Reverse Osmosis, De-ionization, Desalination)
- Industrial Waste Water Processing
- Food and Beverage Processing and Manufacturing
- Pulp and Paper
- Chemical Manufacturing
- Fume Scrubbers
- Aquametrix products are distributed around the world through a network of stocking distributors.
AquaMetrix products have been manufactured for more than five decades. The original manufacturer, Lisle-Metrix, was licensed to build GLI (Great Lakes Instruments) products for the Canadian market. GLI probes and controllers earned their place as some of the most rugged and reliable water analysis equipment in the market place. Following the signing of NAFTA in 1992, Lisle-Metrix expanded to provide products for the global market under its own name. In 1998, Lisle-Metrix became Aquametrix, and in 2010, the company became the foundation for Water Analytics, Inc.
Throughout the changes in both ownership and name, the original probes and controllers, that have been known for their quality, have continued to be made to be interchangeable with their GLI precursors. A steady stream of improvements have made them even better, while a suite of new products have grown to supply even more options to the water treatment industry. Water Analytics continues to build Aquametrix probes and controllers to even more exacting standards and to incorporate changes that make them all the more rugged and more reliable. We will continue to strive to ensure that Aquametrix products are both the most dependable in the marketplace and priced to represent the best value as well.
