Tackling Arsenic With A Cost-Effective Strategy

Arsenic presents a wide array of negative health impacts, which is why it is such a big concern for many municipal water systems. The contaminant is linked to multiple types of cancer — including bladder, lungs, skin, kidney, and liver, among others — and is known to cause a variety of other problems such as skin issues and intestinal issues.

The Effects Of Water Quality On Arsenic Removal

When considering an arsenic treatment option for a water system application, it’s important to obtain and review the proposed design criteria carefully. A good system design will have evaluated critical water quality parameters such as pH alongside arsenic, phosphate, silica, iron and manganese, vanadium, sulfide, and other heavy metal concentrations.

Deploying Iron-Based Adsorption Systems For More Efficient Arsenic Removal

Removing arsenic from source water can be an expensive and tedious process. Anion exchange treatment technologies, for example, produce a brine/contaminant discharge, while reverse osmosis solutions generate a concentrated arsenic reject. By comparison, the only cost of a properly designed iron-based adsorption system is periodic media changeout.

E33 Adsorption Systems

AdEdge Water Technologies’ Bayoxide E33 adsorption media is the industry standard for arsenic removal. This granular ferric oxide media reduces up to 99% total arsenic, including both Arsenic (III) and Arsenic (V). It is ideal for integrated water system solutions, municipal water treatment systems, commercial installations, remediation, and residential point of entry (POE) systems.
