Resin Analysis

At ResinTech, we’re dedicated to making water healthier to drink and safer to use. So it just makes sense that we would have the brightest scientists and most sensitive laboratory equipment in the world necessary to measure its composition and recommend solutions to help it work better for you. 

ResinTech’s Lab Services team analyzes thousands of resin and water samples each year. Our 6,000 sqft. world-renowned laboratory is home to a team of twelve ion exchange scientists utilizing a wide array of state-of-the-art instrumentation including: 

Agilent 6890 CG/TCD/FID - Gas Chromatograph (GC) with Thermal Conductivity Detector (TCD) & Flame Ionization Detector (FID)
Agilent 7500 ICP/MS - Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Mass Spectrometer (MS)
Agilent 5975 GC/MS - Gas Chromatograph (GC) Mass Spectrometer (MS)
Agilent 6410 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS/MS - Liquid Chromatograph (LC) Dual Mass Spectrometer (MS/MS)
Metrohm Ion Chromatograph
Mettler Toledo 500C TOC Analyzer

Our experienced, professional staff offers an unbiased, quantitative analysis whether you want to better understand the composition of your water, need help developing a solution to adjust the effluent or remove unwanted contaminants, or check the health or your media or measure its performance.

One of the most sophisticated laboratories in the world for understanding and addressing your water challenges.

ResinTech® Lab Services can perform a complete analysis of your water sample. Our professional staff and state-of-the-art laboratory can provide a detailed report on your water’s composition including key metrics for:

• Physical Characteristics
• Metals & Minerals
• Inorganics
• Radioactivity
• Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs)
• Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)


If you desire, we can make recommendations about the most efficient and cost-effective media solution. We can even analyze influent used in membrane applications.


WATER SAMPLES MUST BE NON-HAZARDOUS! ResinTech lab services cannot accept solutions that are classified as Hazardous or contain high concentrations of Solvents, Acids, Bases, Radionuclides etc. Please call for confirmation if there are any questions.


Renowned for our technical expertise, ResinTech’s understanding of ion exchange performance is quite possibly the best in the world. We test thousands of resin samples for various suppliers every week. 

Your IX technologists analyze the resin samples you provide in detail and provide a comprehensive report on the physical health of the media and what it means in terms of field performance. The tests into are divided into three categories — Standard, Regenerated, and Specialty tests.  


Standard Tests
Standard tests are those needed to determine if a resin is suitable for use. Standard tests are performed with resins in their “reference” ionic forms and are used to judge the resin’s physical and chemical condition as well as a qualitative evaluation of any fouling that may be present.

• Total capacity
• Salt splitting capacity
• Moisture content 
• Visual Inspection 
• Percentage ratio
• Photography


Regenerated Resin Tests
Testing of regenerated resins is used to determine how well the customer’s regeneration procedure is able to convert a resin into a specific ionic form. Regenerated resins may or may not include a health check.

• Ionic form 


Specialty Tests
Specialty tests are those used to troubleshoot a resin’s performance, to identify specific foulants, to find out what if any cleaning procedures might be effective to remove contaminants, and to determine how a resin is likely to perform under a specific operating condition by means of bench scale columns exhaustions and regenerations. Specialty tests generally take more time and effort and increase the cost of the analysis, therefore, they are not commonly performed unless there is a specific need to do so.

• Screen size distribution 
• Organic extractables 
• Friability
• Inorganic impurities 
• Rinse requirement
• Kinetic tests 
• Column capacity 
• Oxidative stability 
• Osmotic shock test 
• Apparent density
• Void volume 
• Specific gravity 
• Identification of foulants
• Cleaning tests
• Ash analysis 
• Percent volume change 



ResinTech® offers competive pricing for quality servives. 


 Typical turnaround time for a standard analysis is one week, however “rush” analysis can be provided in most cases within three business days. NOTE:  A 50% markup to standard pricing will apply for all rush testing.
