Physical Chemical Testing

Home » Physical Chemical Testing

We carry out Physical Chemical Testing of water pH, hardness, presence of a selected group of chemical parameters, biocides, highly toxic chemicals, and B.O.D are estimated.

pH is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration. It is an indicator of relative acidity or alkalinity of water. Values of 9.5 and above indicate high alkalinity while values of 3 and below indicate acidity. Low pH values help in effective chlorination but cause problems with corrosion. Values below 4 generally do not support living organisms in the marine environment. Drinking water should have a pH between 6.5 and 8.5. Harbor basin water can vary between 6 and 9.
