Environment Applications: Water Pollution
The Xenemetrix Legacy of Innovation Continues
There are numerous regulations in place that limit the amount of toxic compounds and metals that can be released into the atmosphere. EDXRF lends itself to many important analytical applications in support of these regulations.
EDXRF can be used for analyzing metals in wastewater, such as silver emulsion from a photo lab.
Tissue samples are monitored for toxic metal contamination as a way to monitor the safety of the environment. Fish are commonly analyzed for metals like mercury in order to determine water quality and ascertain if the fish are edible.
