At South East Laboratories, we work extensively with stakeholders and service providers in the building services industry.
One area of our expertise is in testing the quality of water in closed heating and chilled water systems.

Microbial activity can affect efficiency and lead to loss of control of organic descaling and corrosion treatments which can be effectivley reduced with regular water analysis form South East Laboratories Ltd.

The process of sampling of closed circuit heating and cooling systems, from the initial construction stage, pre-commissioning cleaning to routine operation is to provide vital information in regards to the condition of the system and the water within it, that may include, but not be limited to, water quality, microbiological contamination and corrosion activity.

The objective and requirements for water sampling and analysis will vary according to the life stage of a closed system. A detailed sampling and analysis plan to achieve these objectives should be prepared in accordance with the following guidelines;

BS8552:2012 Sampling and Monitoring of Water from Building Services Closed Systems – Code of Practice

Water Treatment for Closed Heating and Cooling Systems (BG 50/2013)
