SafeGuard™ is an automated lead analyzer for monitoring exposure to lead contamination from lead pipes, solder and brass fittings. It is designed to be used independently or in conjunction with MetalGuard™ Lead Alert! ™ when this warns of an increase in contamination risk.
The benefits of using this novel analyzer include the rapid analysis of the safety of drinking water in homes, schools, day-cares exposed to the risk of lead contamination, delivery of results in minutes to identify contamination sites far faster than laboratory-based analysis, accurate measurement of total lead, a feature not available with hand-held analyzers and rapid delivery of results ensures quarantined sites can be released more quickly after lead remediation.
AMS Dedicated to Reducing Drinking Water Lead Contamination Risks
Recent drinking water lead contamination crises in Flint, Mich., and Newark, N.J. are raising concerns about the ability of traditional lead monitoring programs to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. AMS is dedicated to the development and commercialization of the company’s solutions for reducing the risk of lead contamination by providing water systems and communities real-time lead monitoring solutions to protect public health.
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.
Hidden Valley Lake Community Services District Pilots Innovative Hexavalent Chromium Remediation System
Kirk Cloyd, General Manager, Hidden Valley Lake Community Services District, joined AMS at the Tri-State 2019 conference to deliver a presentation on the innovative hexavalent chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system that was piloted at the district.

AMS Radio: The Role of Real-Time Selenium Data for Reliable Selenium Removal Treatment Processes
Listen to the latest podcast from AMS Radio featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses the role of real-time, continuous and accurate selenium data for reliable selenium removal treatment processes. Field-based sampling and laboratory analysis approaches to measuring selenium have struggled to accurately measure the contaminant. Online selenium analyzers provide timely and accurate data on selenium speciation at critical remediation process stages to help protect public health and the environment.
AMS Opens New Innovation Center with a Focus on Real-Time Solutions for Lead Remediation
AMS is opening a new Innovation Center in Wyckoff, New Jersey dedicated to the development and commercialization of the company’s innovative SafeGuard H2O system for reducing the risk of lead contamination. SafeGuard H2O is an Intelligent Water Treatment System incorporating real-time contaminant analysis with a proven in-situ trace metal remediation technology. It integrates AMS’s online lead analyzer for accurate, continuous and dynamic assessment of the presence of total lead in buildings or zones exposed to events that are the cause of acute lead contamination.
California American Water Manages Hexavalent Chromium Contaminant Levels in Real-Time
California American Water turned to AMS’s MetalGuard™ fully-automated, online multi-stream Cr(VI) analyzer to have higher visibility of Cr(VI) contaminant levels in real-time and allow them to better monitor and address critical steps in their remediation process.
AMS to Demonstrate SafeGuard™ H2O Cr(VI) Remediation System at AWWA ACE19
AMS will conduct a demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O hexavalent chromium remediation system during AWWA ACE19 show in Denver. The demonstrations will take place on Monday, June 10 at 11 a.m. and Tuesday, June 11 at 2 p.m. at the AMS booth #1408.
AMS Radio: Why Water Treatment Systems Need A Brain
Listen to the latest podcast from AMS Radio featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses why water treatment systems are inherently stupid and they need a brain. As water utilities are increasingly turning to real-time data to identify contaminant threats and diagnose critical treatment system performance once a solution has been put in place, online and real-time water quality analyzers contribute to the development of intelligent water treatment systems.
AMS Delivers Real-Time Water Quality Data and Remediation Solutions to California Utilities
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.
