Introduction to Laboratory Practices


Any compilation of knowledge represents a compromise, and the Manual on Industrial Water and Waste Water is no exception. It was prepared for maximum usefulness to the broadest segment of water analysts and to provide industrial management with background information. The technical ability and experience of analysts vary greatly. Success in using the methods will depend not only on detailed compliance with specified procedures but on proper preparation, general practices, and interpretation. Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide complete technical guidance with the methods. Consequently the “philosophy” of laboratory operation is an individualistic responsibility.
