WASTEWATER BASED EPIDEMIOLOGY FOR THE DETECTION OF ILLICIT DRUG USE

Use of illicit drugs is a significant social, public health and public safety issue in the United States and worldwide. There have been numerous studies over the last few decades attempting to determine effect and extent of criminal activity, health issues and productivity issues related to illicit drug use. Estimates […]

TM-01-72 (NACE Analysis, Corrosion)

We perform petroleum quality and conformance testing by NACE TM-01-72 to evaluate the corrosive properties of petroleum products transported in pipelines. Petroleum product pipelines are subject to general surface corrosion caused by traces of moisture condensed from the products. Rusting can be prevented with corrosion inhibitors. Sample quantity required: 200 ml Contact […]

SAE ARP5996 (HLPS Dynamic Coking)

We perform HLPS testing to evaluate the coking propensity of aviation lubricants under single phase flow conditions found in parts of gas turbine engines. A lubricant’s tendency to form deposits in an engine oil system is a critical factor that can influence engine design, engine performance, and maintenance intervals. This method […]

NAS 1638 (Particle Count)

We perform hydraulic fluid quality testing by FTM 3012 to determine whether aerospace hydraulic fluids meet the NAS 1638 cleanliness standard. NAS 1638 is not a test method, but is a cleanliness standard for hydraulic fluids used in aviation applications.  It is widely used in industrial and aerospace applications. The particle count is determined […]
