  • Common Types Of UV Lamps For Chemical-Free Water Disinfection

    When it comes to water and wastewater treatment systems, operational and performance variation will come from different components, including what treatment processes are deployed, whether chemicals are utilized, or how much power the treatment processes require. With many treatment systems, there is much consideration given to a particular central component akin to the heart and soul of the process. In the case of a UV system, the ultraviolet (UV) lamps are this component.

  • Coronavirus And The Water Cycle — Here Is What Treatment Professionals Need To Know

    As the global health community tracks the spread of this virus, it’s important for water and wastewater professionals to keep updated on potential impacts.

  • 4 Benefits Of Electrocoagulation For Arsenic Removal From Water

    In water and wastewater treatment, arsenic is classfied as a heavy metal. It is well known for its toxicity and it can cause numerous health problems in humans if consumed at high enough doses. Arsenic can affect the skin, liver, kidneys, bladder, and prostate as well as the nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, and endocrine systems. Due to the many health risks associated with arsenic, the U.S. EPA has set the drinking water standard at 10 ppb as the maximum allowable concentration in drinking water. Therefore, this is the goal of all treatment systems for arsenic removal from water.

  • Cost Benefits Of Process Water Disinfection Via UV Light Sterilizer Technology

    For the sake of the productivity and quality of products, as well as the proper upkeep of process equipment, treating process water prior to use is very beneficial, if not vital. One step in treating process water is often disinfection. While there are several chemical options for disinfection, ultraviolet technology can provide several key cost benefits for onsite treatment systems.

  • EPA Researchers Investigate Effectiveness Of POU/POE Systems To Remove PFAS From Drinking Water

    PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been in use since the 1940s. PFAS manufacturing and processing facilities, facilities using PFAS in production of other products, airports, and military installations are some of the contributors of PFAS releases into the air, soil, and water.

  • Progressive WTP Positions Growing Colorado City For The Future

    Facing source water issues that demanded a new water treatment plant (WTP), the City of Thornton turned to progressive design-build to deliver a modern, flexible fix.

  • Top 5 Drinking Water Issues To Be Resolved

    These comments address five major current topics that U.S. EPA has on its agenda: the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) proposal, perchlorate, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Legionella, and distribution systems. The latter two, Legionella and distribution systems, provide the greatest public health risks associated with drinking water and warrant the highest priorities for management, investments, and health and safety improvements.

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Realizes The Importance Of Using Genuine Replacement Parts In Its UV Disinfection System (Case Study)

    The UV system installed at the Lucas County Water Resource Recovery Facility includes a total of four banks, with 48 UV lamps per, for a total of 192. The facility was experiencing disinfection inefficiencies and, even after repeated inspection and analysis, staff couldn’t figure out why. They started to question if the issues were stemming from the use of non-OEM, non-genuine UV lamps, quartz sleeves, and ballasts.

CONTAMINANT REMOVAL SOLUTIONS

  • Z-92® Uranium Removal Process

    WRT's Z-92® process is the most effective and environmentally responsible choice you can make for removing uranium from drinking water and the community. That's because after removing the uranium, we dispose of it at a licensed facility

  • NeoTech D328™

    The NeoTech D328™ is specially designed to disinfect water and is an essential component in advanced oxidation processes.

  • Pipeline Flash Reactors for Mixing & Contacting

    Pipeline Flash Reactors™ (PFRs or spool pieces) utilize high velocity mixing to transfer ozone or oxygen-enriched sidestreams into bulk water flow, all within a compact footprint. With a PFR, ozone or oxygen mass transfer occurs in the pipeline within seconds, eliminating the need for additional tanks or basins. Whether it is providing ozone for water purification or increased dissolved oxygen for wastewater, Mazzei’s PFR uniformly distributes gas into the water and minimizes the size and cost of gas contacting.

  • SureSafe™ Filter Cartridges

    SureSafe™ Filter Cartridges will inhibit the growth of Legionella on your filter cartridges. Silver has been used to help sanitize liquids for more than 4,000 years. Permanent Silver Zeolite fibers are used to manufacture HARMSCO® SureSafe™ Filtration Media which inhibits the growth of biofilms on and in the filtration media.

  • Capital Controls® CHLOR-A-VAC® Series 1520 Chemical Industion Unit

    The Series 1520 CHLOR-A-VAC® affords high efficiency addition and mixing of gases and liquid chemicals resulting in substantial chemical cost savings.
