Industrial Plastics offers a range of commercial fabrication products including water testing columns often for a university. Our testing columns are made with clear acrylic for the tubing, base, and top to allow for optimal vision inside the column. The water testing columns are primarily used by universities as a teaching tool to see the separation of liquid and other substances. Additionally, this product can and is used within industries where water testing is required for professional or educational purposes.

Why Use Water Testing Columns? 

Traditionally water testing has been described as the various procedures used to analyse water quality in all senses whether that be educational or regulatory. This practice is very important for environmental and health reasons. To aid in these procedures the use of water testing columns are utilised to help determine the response and resistance of a particular material to water intrusion. Through the use of our water testing columns, people can see inside the column to get accurate results for their chosen objective. Without the use of testing columns, reliance is placed on human and/or mechanical measuring.
