Lab/Quality Control ,SAWACO LABORATORIES : Where the heart of Sawaco is.
The high quality of our product is what our customers rely on, while the solid dedication of our quality control department in checking every parameter ensures that every detail and aspect of our products conform to the best international water standards like WHO , SASO and in compliance with HACCP guidelines.
The quality of each and every batch of water produced and every shipment leaving our desalination plants to our customers'premises is checked against world standards as well as against our customers’ specific standards.
Morethan 40 different daily tests are carried out on water produced at SAWACO desalination plants and throughout the production processes. In addition to its own local tests, SAWACO water is tested daily by at least 60 institutional customers (factories, hospitals, complexes, hotels, etc.).
The SAWACO water is also tested by laboratories outside the borders of the Kingdom, including National Testing Laboratories Ltd in Cleveland, Ohio, US, Spectrum Laboratory in the US, Severn Trent Laboratories inthe UK.
