Technology Overview: SafeGuard™ H2O In-situ Reagent Generation

SafeGuard™ H2O is an advanced on-site, on-demand, automated non-toxic reagent generation system that is advancing the treatment of inorganic and trace metal contaminants and supporting carbon reduction targets by replacing the need to deliver and handle toxic bulk chemicals to treatment plants. The technology helps to remove a wide range of heavy metals and nutrients from water and wastewater as well as inhibit lead, copper and iron corrosion in water transport systems. The novel in-situ process produces reagents at a cost demonstrated to be significantly below that of the same reagents delivered in bulk form. On-site reagent generation is an affordable, non-hazardous and environmentally sustainable solution — providing a 60% cost savings and a rapid return on investment.

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’ Introduces ‘Micro-Piloting’ for SafeGuard™ H2O Trace Metal Remediation System to Reduce Costs and Deployment Time of Pilots

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.

Mercury Remediation System Reduces Contamination in Power Plant Wastewater

Aqua Metrology Systems’ innovative mercury remediation system, SafeGuard H2O, proven to address dissolved (ionic) mercury from power plant wastewater, was recently featured in Power magazine. SafeGuard H2O is a proprietary approach based on electrolytic stannous reagent generation on demand, making it free of the drawbacks of using a traditional stannous chloride reagent while providing a simple, efficient and cost-effective alternative to highly challenging and expensive existing mercury treatment processes.
