The City of Alamosa, Colorado, evaluated the SafeGuard™ H2O arsenic removal technology to replace the use of bulk ferric chloride. The evaluation demonstrated the technology’s ability to provide effective and reliable arsenic removal below 5 ppb with a ferrous dose of 6.5-8 mg/L that was generated on-site and on-demand. The demonstration also evaluated the purity of the in-situ electrogenerated ferrous reagent compared to bulk ferric chloride, showing SafeGuard™ H2O’s ferrous reagent precursor to be of higher quality. In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Roy Sanchez, CWP, Water Plant Operator for the City of Alamosa, and Dr. Vladimir Dozortsev, Senior Product Manager for AMS, who discuss insights about this project and what prompted the City of Alamosa to undertake this arsenic removal demonstration.Watch the video.

Ferric chloride is a water treatment chemical widely used to remove impurities in water and wastewater. While ferric chloride is effective and approved for use in a range of applications, there is a lack of adequate quality controls and certification for this bulk chemical. Ferric chloride contains a range of contaminants, including manganese, chromium, arsenic, zinc, lead, and copper that can be found in high concentrations and can be very harmful to human health. In addition, ferric chloride is an extremely corrosive and potentially hazardous substance that requires it to be handled and stored with care, driving the cost of treatment. In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud discuss the use of ferric chloride as a water treatment chemical, and the need for alternative solutions that do not contaminate our water supply.Watch the video.
In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, speaks with Joshua Webster, water treatment operator for California American Water about the demonstration of SafeGuard™ H2O arsenic removal technology at the Isleton Water System. The demonstration at Isleton showed the effectiveness of SafeGuard™ H2O to mitigate total arsenic contamination in drinking water below 10 ppb, and its ability to deliver an affordable and reliable fully automated treatment process that does not require the use of bulk chemicals like conventional treatment approaches (e.g., coagulation/filtration).Watch the video.
AMS Sr. Product Manager, Vladimir Dozortsev, Ph.D., offers a quick preview of the innovative SafeGuard™ H2O in-situ reagent generation system undergoing testing for NSF/ANSI 61 Standard. A 10 gpm SafeGuard H2O stannous generation system was used in the test. The fully automated system generates a reagent on demand, providing economical and reliable treatment of a wide range of contaminants for small and large water systems.Watch the video.
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!Watch the video.
Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, discusses the key challenges faced by leaders of technology startups in the water industry, including funding strategies, setting expectations, and building an expert team.Watch the video.
In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Marcie Demmy Bidwell, Executive Director for the Mountain Studies Institute in Colorado, discuss the environmental impact of abandoned mines and efforts to protect water quality. Colorado has roughly 23,000 abandoned mines. Because of the financial scale of this challenge and the existential threat posed by these mines to human health and the environment, Bacon and Bidwell discuss the importance of bringing together the voice of governments, mining companies, and technology solution providers to share ideas and work together toward a solution to this pressing issue.Watch the video.
In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, discusses innovations in arsenic removal treatment technologies and why it might be time to implement a more stringent federal standard for this carcinogenic contaminant than the 10 ppb limit set by the EPA in 2001.Watch the video.
