Water Quality Testing

Formerly Wagtech International, focused on researching and developing water testing technology, Wagtech International manufactured a wide range of portable water testing equipment for testing potable water, groundwater through to soil analysis, industrial effluent and wastewater.

Wagtech International became market leaders when they introduced the Arsenator, a field based digital arsenic testing device capable of detecting arsenic down to ppb levels. The Arsenator reduces the significant costs, both in time and monetarily, of analytical laboratory testing. The product has been proven to be reliable and effective and is now widely regarded as the most effective way of measuring arsenic in the field.

All Wagtech Internationals kits were developed to conform to accuracy standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and with over 20 years experience in the aid sector, Wagtech Projects are suppliers to many UN organisations and major NGOs.

Now working with other industry-leading manufacturers, we have since sold the water testing division of the business to Palintest Ltd. Wagtech International have become Wagtech Projects, and the company remains a worldwide distributor and supplier for customers seeking to perform in-situ analysis of microbiological and physico-chemical water quality tests, including waste and groundwater.

In addition to field kits and portable laboratories, Wagtech Projects can equip water testing laboratories at both basic, intermediate and advance levels. This service is complemented by a full installation, commissioning and training service.

Heavy Metals: The Metalyser HM1000

The Metalyser HM1000 is our newly developed instrument that allows for heavy metals analysis to be undertaken in the field. Obtaining results down to low ppb levels that would otherwise only be achieved through laboratory work, the instrument provides a simple and efficient solution for in-field monitoring of heavy metals.

At present, the handheld instrument tests for Arsenic, Cadmium, Copper, Mercurt & Lead found in a variety of waters, with bench top and online expansions currently under development.

Multi Disciplinary Projects and Tenders

Our specialities lie in multi-disciplinary project work, supplying clients with a wide range of scientific testing equipment across the environmental, agricultural, health, education, mining and construction industries. The projects division works solely on large scale competitive tenders released by the European Union, World Bank and similar donors. Beyond environmental and scientific applications, Wagtech Projects is also involved in the supply of vocational equipment, our Projects & Tenders Division provides a complete turnkey service.

Water testing and environmental surveys frequently require the analysis to be carried out in remote areas.  The use of a well equipped mobile vehicle laboratory is often the ideal solution for extensive field work surveys. Wagtech Projects manufacture a range of mobile laboratories customised to meet all possible requirements and which are designed for rugged use in cold or tropical climates. We source a wide range of products and accessories to tailor our vehicles for a range of different applications.
