Industries and Applications
Galgo's customers come from a wide variety of industries and sectors, including the following. Please click the category below for more information.
Clean Water and Wastewater Treatment
CHEMetrics products are applicable in both drinking water treatment works (WTW) and waste water treatment works (WWTW). WWTWs monitor influent, settling tanks, and effluent waters. WTWs monitor residual disinfectant products.
Environmental and Waste Management
CHEMetrics kits are used extensively in the environmental sector as part of site assessments, monitoring, remediation projects and waste management. Kits are typically used by environmental contractors, official bodies, waste management companies and education, particularly universities. Monitoring applications include surface water monitoring for nutrient run off and industrial effluent contamination and groundwater monitoring. Please see the video below regarding water quality and dissolved oxygen testing at Chesapeake Bay estuary, VA, USA.

Process, Boiler and Cooling Water Treatment
CHEMetrics kits are used to monitor a variety of water dosing applications such as process water, boiler water, cooling water, as well as for the analysis of waste water and effluents. Additionally, in systems that employ on-line analysers, CHEMetrics kits are used for regular system checking and validation, troubleshooting, and as back ups in periods of downtime.

CHEMetrics is the undisputed worldwide leader in colourimetric, low-level Dissolved Oxygen analysis. CHEMetrics test kits and meters are used throughout the power generation industry to monitor corrosive and deposit forming elements in water, and also to monitor corrosion inhibitors and biocides (e.g. chlorine in cooling towers).

CHEMetrics test kits are widely used in oil refineries to monitor influent and waste water/effluent monitoring, as well as internal power generation applications such as boiler and cooling water analysis - from power plant applications to closed loop systems, field tests to lab testing.
Oil Drilling and Production
CHEMetrics test kits are used in both exploration/drilling and oil production - on offshore oil platforms and oil fields - to monitor injection water, hydraulic fracturing fluid, drilling fluid, drilling discharge, produced/formation water and synthetic completion fluid brines; as well as testing potable drinking water. CHEMetrics Iron test kits are suitable for most applications, whilst the Iron in Brine test kit has been specially developed for testing synthetic fluid completion brines.

Mining and ore processing requires large quantities of water, for instance, for chemical treatment of crushed tailings. Large quantities of waste material are produced, which can affect run off and surface drainage. Potential source of water pollution include acid mine drainage, processing chemicals, heavy metals from excavated rock that come into contact with water, and sediment from erosion. A number of CHEMetrics test kits and meters can be used for spot checks of influent, process and effluent water for quick, convenient and reliable testing.
Applications for CHEMetrics kits in these industries include a variety of tests for manufacturing plants such as textile & steel mills, and electronics & automotive plants. Whether testing for contaminants on the influent side or spot checks of effluent water, CHEMetrics can equip your lab or field personnel with accurate, easy to use, reliable test kits.
Pulp and Paper Manufacturing
The primary applications for CHEMetrics products in pulp and paper plants are in boiler and cooling water and waste water and effluent water treatment. Since water is used in nearly every mill operation, this industry also requires analytical products for processes including bleaching, cooking and washing, pulp processing, and pulp liquor recovery.
Food and Beverage Manufacturing
CHEMetrics products are used throughout the food and beverage industry in processing, production, packaging, and sanitising processes. Bottled water plants, breweries, and carbonated beverage facilities test impurities in their production water. Packaging operations, particularly aseptic packaging, use CHEMetrics kits to verify sterilisation and to monitor the efficacy of sterilisation solutions. COD vials are used to monitor waste water conditions, particularly at dairies, creameries, and meat processing plants. Our ozone test method has been approved for worldwide use by a major bottler to monitor trace ozone levels in bottled water plants. Our Sulphite in Wine test kit is used by many wine makers and vineyards.

Medical and Clinical
In hospitals and other medical facilities, CHEMetrics test kits are used to validate sanitisation and to check for detergent residuals, as well as testing for low-level contaminants. CHEMetrics Detergents test kits are used to monitor the efficiency of cleaning cycles of manufacturing equipment used in drug research and pilot batch prototyping evaluations.

CHEMetrics FoalWatch is the world leader in colostrum testing, used by horse breeders to eliminate the requirement for nightly foal watching in the weeks before a mare's expected foaling date. A mare's gestation period is typically about 340 days, but it can vary up to ±20 days. The FoalWatch test kit is used to accurately measure the mare's daily colostrum calcium levels, thus providing a reliable positive indication of when the birth is imminent.
