Supported databases and some actions you can take
This software tool supports import from a few types of databases, namely AQC, SQL and VBH, while you can also create a new one, in an AQC format, with the help of a template (TPL) from the hard drive.
In addition to that, it is possible to perform unit conversions, create charge balances, compare samples and mix them, analyze trends and generate statistics, so that you can make certain decisions easier.
A color-coded system and types of plots
A customizable database of water quality with different actions levels for each parameter is available, and it paired with a color coded system, so that you can easily figure out if a sample exceeds the selected standard and thus avoiding potential problems.
AquaChem comes bundled with many commonly used techniques of plots, so that you can represent data regarding the chemical characteristics of water quality, such as probability plots, radial, stiff, pie, frequency histogram, Ludwig-Langelier, Ternary and detection summary plots.
Conclusion and performance
The computer’s performance might be affected from time to time, as some processes might take up a little more CPU and memory. The interface is user-friendly and the response time is good.
All in all, AquaChem is an efficient piece of software, dedicated to professionals, and we did not discover any errors, crashes or hangs in our tests.
