Research Shows That AMS’ Online THM Monitoring Technology Is a Viable Method to Accurately Predict THM Precursor Content and Network THM Levels
A research project collaboration between the Water and Energy Technology Center at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Ma., and AMS tested a novel method for near real-time analysis of disinfection byproduct precursors and natural organic matter properties in water supplies. AMS’ online THM and THM Formation Potential monitoring technology was shown to be a viable method to accurately predict THM precursor content and network THM levels. The collaboration was funded by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
AMS Talks: The Value of Data to Aeration and THM Removal
In this episode of AMS Talks, Value of Data series, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Bryan Galvin, President of B&V Enterprises, discuss the challenges and opportunities in managing trihalomethanes (THMs) in drinking water systems and the role of real-time and predicative THM data in designing and operating a highly effective and cost-efficient aeration system. Learn about the operational and process benefits that can be achieved by implementing real-time online THM monitors, such as the AMS online THM-100™ analyzer, into your disinfection byproduct mitigation strategy.
Technology Overview- Effective Management of Corrosion and Biofilm in Cooling and Heating Systems with SafeGuard™ H2O
Many industries, hospitals, institutions, and buildings are faced with the inevitable task of managing corrosion and biofilm in their cooling and heating systems. With the SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent corrosion management system these facilities can extend their useful life, reduce maintenance expenditures and foster sustainability. SafeGuard H2O is an innovative electrochemical water treatment solution developed by AMS. A non-toxic and environmentally safe stannous reagent is generated on-site using only tin and electricity and is delivered in a tightly controlled dose. This all-in-one reagent acts as both a biocide and a corrosion inhibitor. The fully integrated and online SafeGuard H2O treatment approach eliminates the pitfalls of conventional corrosion and biofilm management systems and aids in the delivery of an affordable and reliable process.
Technology Overview- SafeGuard™ H2O In-Situ Stannous and Tin Dioxide Generator
SafeGuard™ H2O is a fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous (reducing agent) and tin dioxide (adsorbent), coupled with online monitoring capability developed by AMS to address waterborne and airborne contaminants. The system removes Cr(VI), Cu, and Pb from drinking water and Cr(VI), Hg and Se from wastewater; acts as corrosion inhibitor for lead pipes and cooling systems; adsorbs H2S, NOx, SO2 from industrial emissions. The fully integrated and online SafeGuard H2O treatment approach eliminates the pitfalls of conventional systems and aids in the delivery of an affordable and reliable remediation process. SafeGuard H2O is integrated with an online contaminant monitoring capability. There are no similar technologies to SafeGuard H2O that integrate a low life-time cost contaminant treatment system with real-time performance controls.
AMS Talks: The Value of Data for Corrosion Control
In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems, and Richard Lawson, Director of Southsea STS, discuss the “Value of Data for Corrosion Control.” Lawson addresses the challenges associated with managing corrosion in buildings and the value of data-driven solutions to better manage and control these water systems and ensure compliance.
AMS Selected to the AFCP and Game Changers Innovation Challenge to Treat NOx
AMS has been selected to the Advanced Fuel Cycle Programme (AFCP) and Game Changers cross-sector solutions challenge for the treatment of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from nuclear fuel recycling off-gases to minimize the environmental impact of recycling operations. AFCP is led in partnership with the U.K. Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) who are collaborating with leading industrial, academic and research institutions to investigate the role of advanced nuclear fuels and fuel cycles for a Net Zero greenhouse gas emission future. AMS has been awarded funding to complete feasibility studies based on its unique SafeGuard™ H2O fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous and tin dioxide. AMS will be demonstrating the power of tin to secure a clean energy future for all.
Manage Corrosion and Ensure Compliance with SafeGuard™ H2O
Southsea STS, a U.K.-based technical services company specializing in water quality, has a history of embracing and implementing new technologies and ideas to support compliance and control in buildings. Recently, Southsea has been evaluating new technologies for corrosion management as part of a pilot program with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) in the UK. Richard Lawson, Director for Southsea STS, gives a behind the scenes look of the pilot project on the use of AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O stannous generator to provide corrosion inhibition water treatment for closed-loop heating and cooling systems. Current corrosion inhibitors are relatively expensive, potentially toxic to handle, and can have difficulty meeting requirements imposed for disposal. The SafeGuard™ H2O stannous-based solution can help organizations better manage corrosion and ensure compliance.
When Contamination Comes a Knockin’ — SafeGuard™ H2O to the Rescue
In the fight to keep water safe and affordable, there is only one technology for the job! SafeGuard™ H2O is a fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous (reducing agent) and tin dioxide (adsorbent), coupled with online monitoring capability. SafeGuard H2O removes As, Cr(VI), Cu, Fe, Pb, and Mn from drinking water and As, Cr(VI), Hg & Se from wastewater; acts as corrosion inhibitor for lead pipes and cooling systems; adsorbs SO2, H2S from industrial emissions. Tin and electricity are the only consumables. There are no similar technologies to SafeGuard H2O that integrate a low life-time cost contaminant treatment system with real-time performance controls. With SafeGuard H2O, contaminants have met their match!
Real-Time THM Data Help Utilities Achieve DBP Compliance, Optimize Aeration Processes and Ensure Public Safety
Real-time THM data from the online THM-100™ analyzer has helped the City of San Luis Obispo to achieve DBP compliance, optimize their aeration process and ensure public safety. In 2014 and 2015, the City of San Luis Obispo experienced high THM levels and staff began to research processes and practices that could head-off high THM recurrences. To ensure DBP regulatory compliance, the city chose in-tank aeration to mitigate THMs. While effective in the removal of THMs, in-tank aeration is a high-energy consumption process. Spending approximately $10K per month on power, San Luis Obispo began searching for an effective solution that would help reduce energy expenses while optimizing the treatment process and making it more cost-efficient. The online THM-100™ analyzer from AMS was valuable for aeration treatment system design, establishing continuous real-time THM data as vital assets in meeting regulatory compliance and protecting public health.
