CONTAMINANT REMOVAL RESOURCES
The Highly Consolidated U.S. UV Water Treatment Equipment Market
The U.S. ultraviolet water (UV) water treatment equipment market for industrial and drinking water applications is competitive, mature, and saturated. The market is dominated by a few leading players holding significant market shares.
Understand The Risk Of Stagnant Water To Reopen With Safety And Reliabilty
The year 2020 has marked a time when the risk of disease has altered plans for how we work, shop, learn and travel. As the work force re-enters offices and more industrial and commercial facilities reopen, there looms another risk waiting in our water systems – Legionella.
Managing Your Potable Water System During The Pandemic
The government mandated business closures and travel restrictions, due to the COVID-19 virus, have caused many businesses to reduce water flow in various complex building water systems. While the COVID-19 virus is not associated with building water systems, there are other pathogens and water quality issues that can potentially develop due to stagnant or reduced water flow in buildings.
Innovation And Teamwork To Address PFAS Treatment
When you need to solve a pressing problem, one that is complicated and requires out-of-the-box thinking, you need to focus your attention, minimize distractions and barriers, and work with others to come up with innovative ideas. That’s exactly what EPA’s PFAS Innovative Treatment Team (PITT) is doing to help address PFAS.
Resilience In The Face Of Emerging Contaminants
There are over 150,000 public drinking water systems in the United States and more than 80 percent of the population receives their potable drinking water from these systems. And today - according to the EPA, our water systems are faced with a growing list of challenges.
Optimal Ultrafiltration Uses For Beverage And Dairy Companies
When you’re sipping on a cold soda or snacking on a creamy piece of cheese, you probably don’t really think about what went into making your food or beverage. Aside from the automated production-line machines, one of the most important things that goes into the making of any soda, juice, wheel of cheese, or gallon of milk is water. Producing beverages and dairy products uses substantial amounts of water within production processes.
Controlled Coagulant Dosing Utilizing Zeta Potential In A Direct Feed To UF Approach
San Jose Water (SJW) decided to implement a novel coagulant dosing control approach for purposes of achieving the following: limit UF membrane fouling, mitigate rain event turbidity spikes, and conserve operating costs.
Mastering The Application Of UV Advanced Oxidation Using Chlorine In California (Article)
Installed at the Albert Robles Center (ARC) in California is the TrojanUVPhox™. Arranged in two parallel trains, the UV AOP system was designed to operate with sodium hypochlorite being injected into the treatment stream instead of more traditional hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This is commonly referred to as a UV/chlorine or UV/Cl2 approach to UV AOP.
Warm Weather Water Treatment: Optimizing Coagulation With Standby Advanced Oxidation
Seasonal variations and peak events can impact the water quality in ways difficult to anticipate, requiring tools and monitoring methods to optimize drinking water treatment at a moment’s notice.
COVID-19 Requires Management Of Building Water Systems Now
Controlling the spread of COVID-19 requires the collective effort of physical distancing. While this is imperative to save lives from the novel disease, many hotels, resorts, offices, and other buildings are now partially or entirely shut down. As a result, the water systems in these buildings are experiencing low to no flow, loss of disinfectant residual, tepid water temperatures, and other hazardous conditions that can increase Legionella amplification, which can cause Legionnaires disease.
