Set Point Water Laboratories was established in Johannesburg in 1998 as a minerals laboratory, then generally identified as Set Point Laboratories. เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันโลหิต launched water testing in 2013 and expanded with the launch of a Cape Town water laboratory in 2019, reaching accreditation of the Cape Town Laboratory in 2020, and thereafter focusing only on water analysis.
เกจวัดแรงดันถังแก๊ส , general manager of Set Point Water Labs, outlines their providers, ‘Our laboratory technicians select the relevant checks for the water sample relying on the needs of the client.

These techniques obtain the best possible results in chemical and microbial evaluation of effluent/wastewater, ingesting water, processed water, floor water and groundwater.
Industrial operations
‘In the case of commercial operations needing to eliminate wastewater into a river system, the sea or even merely down the drain, there are strict by-laws that must be adhered to, outlining the “acceptable” ranges of contaminants earlier than disposal, to stop attainable fines and even prosecution. Our water technicians decide the precise levels of contaminants and advise on acceptable ranges for safe discarding.
‘Many of our mining clients function boreholes, using the water in the mining process. We frequently monitor the water quality from the boreholes to check whether contaminants from the mining course of have leached into the water provide.
‘As an instance – cyanide is usually used in gold mining, the presence of this toxin have to be continually monitored. Uranium is usually discovered within the ore with gold, and as uranium is radioactive, you will want to monitor the degrees and verify whether or not it has leached into the water supply. This is even an issue on disused mines and mine dumps – many of our customers dwelling close to these come to us to check the quality of their drinking water.
