For a no cost, no obligation wastewater filtration test, ALAR will show you how our technology can help your specific problem. Ship a 5-gallon water sample for testing, and a lab technician will return a qualified Filtration Test Report along with the physical results of the filtrate and dry solids.

Based on the results, ALAR will recommend the best equipment and chemical treatment to suit your application.

Please fill out ALAR’s “Sample Data Sheet” and e-mail, fax, or ship it with your sample.
