SIR-700 Chromate Selective Media Receives Gold Seal Approval
ResinTech, Inc. has received the WQA’s Gold Seal of approval for its chromate selective resin, ResinTech SIR-700. ResinTech SIR-700 now meets “NSF/ANSI-61: Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects” for use in all potable water applications.
SIR-700 has been used successfully for years at several Superfund sites to remove hexavalent chromium from groundwater, in one case offering projected savings to the federal government of up to $20M. The unique chemical structure of ResinTech SIR-700 provides tremendous throughput capacity with the ability to load more than 7 pounds of chrome per cubic foot of media under ideal conditions.
Hexavalent chromium in water poses a significant health threat and often appears in groundwater sources as a legacy contaminant from the use of sodium dichromate as a corrosion inhibitor.
“We are all proud to supply a product that provides substantial health benefits,” said ResinTech’s President, Michael Gottlieb “and we look forward to providing this media to the municipal drinking water market.”
ResinTech, Inc. is a manufacturer/supplier of ion exchange resins, activated carbon, and specialty media to the water and wastewater marketplace.
The Water Quality Association (WQA) is a not-for-profit international trade association representing the household, commercial, industrial, and small community water treatment industry.
