Water & Pure Water Systems for Higher Education Environments

It can feel overwhelming for colleges and universities to make higher education water systems and processes successful amidst strict regulations and tight budgets. We help some of the most prestigious colleges and universities stay safe, compliant, and productive all within a tight budget.

If your institution’s water systems aren’t functioning exactly as they should be, you can quickly amass hefty fines, miss critical deadlines, and even put your students, faculty, and staff at risk.

Practical Applications’ team of scientists, engineers, and compliance specialists has decades of experience helping some of the most prestigious institutions solve complex water challenges.

How We Help Colleges and Universities Achieve Success

Practical Applications can evaluate and improve your institution’s water treatment systems so you can avoid contamination, minimize the need for emergency maintenance, and save money.

1. Avoid Contamination

Many laboratory pure water systems often have bacteria control issues. If you discover that the bacteria in your institution’s laboratory’s pure water system is high, it’s critical to have it evaluated; otherwise, you risk significant effects on experimental outcomes. Practical Applications can help make sure you have ultrapure water on demand.

And while Practical Applications proudly offers 24/7 emergency maintenance for local clients, we can also help evaluate and redesign your water systems to significantly improve performance, perform routine maintenance, and minimize or completely eliminate downtime/emergency maintenance.
