AMS Talks: A Proven, Cost-Effective Solution for California Water Utilities Impacted by Proposed Cr6 Ruling

In December 2022, the State of California published its long-awaited recommendation for a regulatory limit for hexavalent chromium (Cr6) in water of 10 parts per billion. According to the California State Water Resources Control Board, there are more than 2,600 community systems with elevated Cr6 levels serving nearly 13 million people.

This proposed regulation unequivocally identifies AMS and its in-situ stannous generation technology, SafeGuard™ H2O, as the best available technology to treat Cr6 and provide safe drinking water to the millions of consumers across California, many of whom live in underserved communities.

SafeGuard™ H2O has been thoroughly evaluated and proven to reduce Cr6 to non-detect levels. The technology features an automated treatment design that incorporates real-time online Cr6 monitoring to ensure regulatory standards are met continuously.

Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring AMS CEO Rick Bacon and Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud who discuss how this proven and cost-effective solution can treat most of the wells with high Cr6 levels, giving a peace of mind to water utilities impacted by this new regulation.

SafeGuard™ H2O System Testing for NSF/ANSI 61 Standard

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.

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!

AMS Installs SafeGuard™ H2O Cr(VI) Remediation Full-Scale Pilot in California

AMS installed a full-scale pilot of its SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent Cr(VI) remediation system in a Central Valley California Community. SafeGuard™ H2O is an innovative technology based on a proprietary approach that generates on demand a stannous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process. The goal of the pilot is to demonstrate the system’s ability to effectively and affordably treat water with elevated Cr(VI) levels to non-detect levels (less than 2 ppb) by converting toxic Cr(VI) to insoluble nontoxic Cr (III), which then can be removed by filtration along with tin dioxide — the product of the conversion. The stannous generator system features automatic dosing and incorporates continuous, real-time monitoring of Cr(VI) levels at the influent and effluent to ensure optimal treatment and compliance with regulatory and operational targets 24/7/365. Through the onboard online analyzer the technology’s ability to effectively reduce Cr(VI) was seen immediately.

AMS Talks: SafeGuard H2O Cr(VI) Remediation System Piloted at City of Los Banos, California

Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses AMS’ pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at the City of Los Banos, Calif. The goal of the pilot is to demonstrate how SafeGuard H2O can effectively and affordably treat Cr(VI) down to non-detect levels and how the system can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely without the presence of personnel on site.

SafeGuard™ H2O – An Inside Look

AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O, an innovative in-situ stannous (Sn2+) generator, harnesses the power of tin to address trace metal contaminants, such as hexavalent chromium and more. Traditional treatment systems are expensive and associated with high capital and operating costs. SafeGuard H2O is the first truly intelligent trace metal remediation system that demonstrates how innovation can reduce the costs of drinking and wastewater treatment, support tighter regulatory standards for contaminants of concern and widen access to safe drinking water for all.

Accurate, Affordable and Effective Chromium Treatment

Traditional chromium remediation systems are expensive and have high operating costs. SafeGuard H2O, the first truly intelligent chromium remediation system was specifically developed to help drive down the costs of treatment. The technology also features an online analyzer to control and monitor system performance, in real time, by providing a high density of actual data on influent and effluent chromium levels. This video highlights this new accurate, affordable and effective chromium treatment technology.
