Faced with high IEX process waste disposal costs, TRUMPF, a manufacturer of laser diodes made from Gallium Arsenide substrates (GaAs) wafers, undertook efforts to optimize the IEX process and produce less hazardous waste. One of the process improvements included the installation of the MetalGuard Arsenic online arsenic analyzer to continuously measure influent and effluent arsenic levels in real-time, providing TRUMPF with a stream of accurate and reliable arsenic data to measure the performance of its IEX system and ensure regulatory compliance. Timely and accurate arsenic results enabled TRUMPF to optimize rinse water reuse as well as to optimize and reduce IEX backwash frequencies, increasing media performance and reducing hazardous waste generation. These process improvements have resulted in an estimated annual cost savings of $100K for the facility.Read the case study.

SafeGuard™ is an automated analyzer for monitoring municipal and industrial water and wastewater that provides real-time, reliable and accurate analysis of a range of trace metal contaminants to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. The SafeGuard Duo operates in fully automatic on-line mode or semi automatic off line mode that requires just the push of a button after loading a sample to return data on contaminant levels. An optional integrated autosampler provides capacity for 40 samples.Read the brochure.

As regulatory requirements and the availability of more accurate diagnostic technologies continue to push the legal threshold limit of contaminants, utilities are turning to high-frequency data to identify contaminant threats and diagnose critical treatment system performance. Learn how El Paso Water’s Upper Valley Water Treatment Plant was able to meet regulatory requirements with the help of AMS’s MetalGuard™ automated, online arsenic analyzers.Read the full article.
A study released by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), found that a mix of pollutants in California drinking water could cause an estimated 15,500 additional cases of cancer over the course of a lifetime. While concerns about water quality and safety continue to grow, it is important to note that a number of California utilities are already implementing real-time, online monitoring to determine the presence of water-borne contaminants of concern and ensure drinking water safety at all times. AMS is helping these utilities to not only identify THM and trace metal contaminant threats, but also to diagnose critical treatment system performance once a solution has been put in place.Read the news article.
The data from AMS online analyzers fulfill mission-critical functions of process control, risk management and contract compliance for its clients. With this in mind, AMS after-sales service support aims to maximize the uptime and minimize time to repair its analyzers. Every AMS system is offered with an annual service contract (ASC).Read the brochure.
AMS a leader in the prediction, control and treatment of trace metals, introduces a “Micro-Piloting” program for its novel intelligent SafeGuard™ H2O trace metal remediation system. Municipal water systems or industrial facilities looking for new treatment options to remove hexavalent chromium, ionic mercury, and selenium contamination can use the Micro-Piloting program to deploy and assess demonstrations of the SafeGuard H2O technology far more quickly and for a cost that is a fraction of traditional technology demonstration pilots.Read the press release.
AMS announced the pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O HexavalentChromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at California’s Hidden Valley Lake Community Services District. Real-time data on the system’s performance will be streamed live, providing transparency of the pilot study and treatment efficacy of the technology.Read the press release.
