Water Analysis

Water Analysis

Water, one of the indispensable substances of human life, is consumed in large quantities not only as food but also for cleaning purposes. But Access to clean water resources is becoming an increasingly serious problem because of today's changing climatic conditions and deteriorating ecological balances. Yet it is a right for all people to use reliable and clean water. The decision taken by the United Nations states that clean, reliable, clean and accessible water should be provided for everyone and efforts should be made to protect human health in this respect.

In natural spring waters, a number of substances such as carbonate and bicarbonate ions are dissolved. Bicarbonates are the most important form of the alkalinity of water, ie the ability to neutralize acids. Bicarbonates are formed by the activity of carbon dioxide on the basic substances in the soil. In natural waters, algal growth is the main factor in the high alkalinity of carbonate and hydroxide. Especially in surface waters, algae take carbon dioxide and increase the pH value of water. PH measurements are made to determine the alkalinity of water.

If the density of chloride in the water is high, it causes taste and erosion problems and negatively affects the operation of the water network system, washing machines and dishwashers and water heaters. Chloride content of all natural waters are available in different concentrations. Essentially, the amount of chloride is increased by increasing the mineral content of water. Therefore, the density of chlorides is low in water sources in the mountains, in groundwater and in rivers and streams. High in the sea. In general, this is caused by sodium chloride. The maximum amount of chloride in natural waters is 5 mg / l. Water containing excess chloride damages network systems and metallic pipes. The determination of chloride in surface waters is an important parameter when determining chloride controls.

Heavy metal sulfides in nature are oxidized and dissolved in water due to weather conditions. Sulfates are formed in this way. Sulfates are very common in natural waters. Density ranges from several mg to several thousand mg per liter. The main source of sulphates encountered in groundwater is gypsum. Gypsum is a water-soluble substance. However, lead, barium and calcium sulfates in the water are insoluble. On the other hand, sodium, potassium and ammonium sulphates are highly soluble. The presence of sulphates in water is undesirable. Gravimetric method, chromatographic method and other methods are used for determination of sulfate in water.

There are also a number of other tests and analyzers carried out in laboratory laboratories for carbonate and bicarbonate ions, alkalinity of water, drinking water and drinking water other than chlorides and sulphates.

Like many testing and inspection bodies, our company also provides a wide range of measurement, testing, analysis, inspection and control services to ensure safety in drinking and using water. The main services provided in this context are:

  • Physicochemical analyzes
  • Microbiological analyzes
  • Pool water analysis
  • Sea water analysis
  • Water quality analysis

In addition to the existing legal regulations, many standards published by domestic and foreign organizations are taken into consideration in water analysis studies.

Our organization, UAF From the Accreditation Agency, Based on the accreditation authority obtained in accordance with TS EN ISO / IEC 17025 standard, it performs water analysis.
