WRT introduces an affordable solution for chromium removal.

WRT's proprietary SMR™ (Selective Metals Reduction) Process for the removal of chromium and other metals, is the most cost effective and environmentally responsible choice you can make for removing chromium from drinking water and the community. This innovative process provides an affordable, operator friendly solution for removal of chromium 6.

The SMR™ Process removes chromium by passing contaminated water through a fluidized bed of proprietary WRT SMR™ Media, which facilitates simultaneous reduction, oxidation and precipitation. A final filtration step completes the treatment process. Solids from the filter are settled and thickened for solid waste disposal by WRT.

Onsite pilot testing was conducted in cooperation with the Mission Springs Water District in Desert Hot Springs, California. Discussions are currently underway regarding a full scale installation at their well 29 site.

The treatment process is much simpler to operate than conventional ion-exchange treatment processes that require brine regeneration of the treatment media; and it produces no liquid treatment residuals. The result is significantly lower operating costs.
