Resin Analysis

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.
