Water Sampling & Water Quality Testing
We can arrange for samples to be taken by our trained staff and analysed in our laboratory. AMES also offer full certification and an explanation of all samples taken.
We offer water sampling to test for Legionella bacteria or Potable water quality (drinking water). If other health problems such as infections are believed to have arisen from pond or pool water, a ‘Pseudomonas’ sample can be taken.
Water Sampling Tailored For Your Needs
We can arrange to carry out scheduled water sampling, or just a one-off sampling or quality test for piece of mind. Our team are more than happy to advise you regarding your exact sampling requirements.
Process water used in numerous manufacturing systems can also be tested.. COD and BOD water quality testing can also be provided.
Fast & Effective Process Water Quality Analysis
Unfortunately, process water can easily provide an idea growth medium for legionella and other bacteria which are harmful to humans. As it is often used in and around machinery which creates debris and is often sprayed, squirted or poured onto moving equipment. This warming and cooling and aerosol creating movement gives bacteria the kind of environment that it needs to thrive.
Process water used by the food industry will probably also have increased levels of organic matter, this makes it even more hospitable to bacteria. Clearly there are a variety of risks involved with the use of process water which must be properly assessed and controlled on a regular basis.
Water analysis can be carried out to check the quality of water to be used in consumable products and in the manufacturing process itself. Call 0800 197 1650 for more details.
Other industries which use large quantities of water such as the chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, pulp, paper and printing, metal-working and automotive sector benefit from having a consistent water quality monitoring system in place.
Analytical Testing Of Water Quality
AMES technicians carry out analytical testing of water quality for customers including industrial and manufacturing sites, leisure facilities, NHS sites, council and food manufacturing facilities.
By taking water samples from the relevant components of your system, we can ensure that you have an accurate picture of the health of your system. We can take samples from your tanks, pipework, equipment and any outlets.
The UCAS approved laboratories that we use, can test for elevated levels of several types of bacteria in your water. While legionella bacteria are one of the most dangerous water-borne bacteria, it is not the only form of biological contaminant and where required, samples can be tested for other specific problems.
We can also evaluate your potable (drinking) water. I.e how balanced, clean and safe your water supply is. Water with poor wholesomeness may not threaten the life of those on your site.
We can consult on the results of your chemical and microbiological tests which enable us to advise you on how to maintain the correct water conditions for your facilities.
