Process water is used in all industrial branches: medicine, color, metal, textile and food industries. Inadequately prepared process water can lead to problems on production lines, so it is important to regularly monitor at least some basic parameters of water purity.

The quality of protected surfaces depends directly on the chemical composition of the bath and the parameters set. The most successful galvanizing companies monitor the concentration of active substances and impurities and regularly conduct analysis of galvanic baths. We perform tests according to the standards and other procedures listed below, all tailored to your requirements.

The right information allows you to eliminate errors and upgrade your product

Product failure analysis

Product failure analysis is an important discipline in the production industry and it is used in development of new products and improvement of existing products on the market. 

Complex problems on the production line are not easily solved. In such cases, often the companies do not have enough resources, knowledge and analytical methods to ensure a  comprehensive approach to the problem. LOTRIČ Metrology laboratories are your partner in problemsolving, using chemical and mechanical methods in the field of chemistry, mechanics, polymer technology and metallurgical sciences.
