Their knowledgeable team of specialists, with years of experience, is able to custom-design testing procedures to fit the needs of any business or organization with an emphasis on quality and cost-effectiveness.

Engineering Performance Solutions (EPS) specializes in assisting water utilities with the selection of their treatment chemicals in addition to conducting routine water quality monitoring. One particular specialty lies in the analyses of taste- and odor-causing compounds, specifically, 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin. Activated carbon (i.e., PAC and GAC) is commonly used among water treatment facilities to remove these displeasing compounds. Although, PAC and GAC are often purchased based on indices such as iodine number, phenol value, molasses number, and tannin value, these properties however have not correlated well with performance. Therefore, this necessitates that activated carbons be selected based on performance testing versus specifications. These results are received through Performance Based Testing, which is developed specifically for each utility.

Their Performance Based Testing services are among the best in the industry, giving clients fast and effective results. This service allows the utility to choose a carbon based on performance thus getting a true cost of use. This cost is achieved by multiply a performance factor that is generated for each carbon by the price of that particular carbon to get a true cost of use. This has the potential to save the utility thousands of dollars by helping them chose a carbon that is the most cost effective at achieving their water quality goals. This service also allows them to know how much to dose based on the performance curve generated for that carbon. This can also potentially save the utility in carbon by knowing how much to dose with any given taste and odor episode.
