Alfa Chemistry’s Laboratory Increases Capability for Water Analysis, Resin Analysis, and Chromatography Analysis
Alfa Chemistry, a New York-based chemical supplier specializing in analytical and testing services for various fields, has announced the expansion of its laboratory capabilities to meet the industry's demand for water analysis, resin analysis, and chromatography analysis using the expertise gained over the past two decades.
Previously, the company has already released various ion exchange resin products that were developed and manufactured with relentless efforts, including various cation exchange resins, anion exchange resins, mixed bed resins, adsorption resins, and nuclear grade resins, to customers worldwide.
"Ion exchange resin is a popular technology used in several industries, including water treatment, pharmaceuticals and food processing. It is a polymeric material that acts as a 'sponge' to remove contaminants from solutions through ion exchange processes," said a senior scientist at Alfa Chemistry. "The ion exchange resin works by exchanging one ion for another of equal charge, resulting in a reduction in the concentration of unwanted contaminants in the solution. Our investment in people and advanced equipment is an integral part of Alfa Chemistry's larger strategy to expand our resin analysis, process development, optimization and design capabilities to better serve our customers' growing needs.
Equipped with a suite of advanced equipment and technology, Alfa Chemistry is able to conduct analysis for drinking water, industrial water, groundwater, surface water, wastewater, and micro-pollutants. In most cases, water analysis will rotate through physical characteristics, metals & minerals, inorganic substances, radioactivity, organic compounds, and microorganisms.
Resin Analysis Laboratory
Alfa Chemistry performs resin analysis to determine factors such as exchange capacity, density, moisture, particle size, mechanical strength for ion exchange resins. In some cases, when customers need more sophisticated data, Alfa Chemistry's laboratory team can further specify the swelling rate of ion exchange resin, neutral salt decomposition capacity, heat resistance analysis, adsorption performance, oxygen consumption, ash and iron content. The ultimate goal is to improve the overall performance of the ion exchange resin.
Ion chromatography has become one of the fastest-growing technologies in recent decades for analyzing a wide variety of substances in various fields, to name a few: anions and cations, biological amines, and sugars. Other research also demonstrates the ability of ion chromatography to separate and purify macromolecular substances. In fact, combining ion chromatography with a number of technologies such as membrane dialysis, atomic fluorescence spectroscopy and ultraviolet detectors can provide better detection and separation results. Alfa Chemistry offers the most comprehensive chromatographic analysis services on the market, including but not limited to: anion detection, organic acid detection, bio-amine detection, metal ion detection, sugar detection, amino acid detection, and purification & separation for peptides, proteins, fermentation products, and viruses.
