SafeGuard™ H2O Advanced Intelligent Water Treatment Systems

The SafeGuard™ H2O in-situ reagent generation technology offers an economical, reliable remediation system proven 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 process is simple, effective and carbon neutral.

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. On-site reagent generation is an affordable, non-hazardous and environmentally sustainable solution — providing a 60% cost savings and a rapid return on investment.

SafeGuard™ H2O features a compact modular design that easily integrates into existing infrastructure and low power consumption to support carbon reduction goals. SafeGuard™ H2O can be powered by renewable energy sources, and the reagents can be stored safely to enable electricity load balancing by end-users.

This advanced intelligent remediation system incorporates proprietary continuous, real-time monitoring of contaminant levels at the influent and effluent to ensure optimal treatment and compliance with regulatory and operational targets 24/7/365. The in-situ system can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely; the presence of onsite staffing and supervision personnel is minimized.

Real-time Fluoride Measurement in Petrochemical Industry

British Petroleum (BP) replaced one of its existing Tytronics online fluoride analyzers at the Castellón refinery in Spain with the online Instran™ Fluoride analyzer. Monitoring fluoride levels in real-time with a reliable and accurate online water quality analyzer is integral to maintaining safety of the alkylation zone and overall refinery. Since its installation in January 2022, the Instran analyzer has been operating continuously and has met the facility’s needs to monitor fluoride levels in real-time within the alkylation zone.

Isleton Water System Demonstrates In-situ Ferrous Generation Technology for Arsenic Remediation

SafeGuard™ H2O is an innovative arsenic treatment approach that generates a ferrous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process to address arsenic contamination effectively and economically. The demonstration of SafeGuard™ H2O at California American Water’s Isleton Water System proved the effectiveness of the technology 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.

Isleton, Calif. SafeGuard™ H2O Arsenic Treatment System Demonstration Report

California American Water’s Isleton Water System underwent an evaluation of SafeGuard™ H2O, an intelligent arsenic remediation system manufactured by AMS. This innovative technology generates a ferrous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process to address arsenic contamination. The objective of the project was to demonstrate the ability of the electrogenerated ferrous reagent produced on demand by the SafeGuard™ H2O system to remove arsenic from unchlorinated well water reliably and effectively. The SafeGuard™ H2O system consistently treated arsenic below 10 ppb and the technology’s modular design can be easily integrated with the facility’s existing coagulation/filtration system; replacing the use of liquid ferric chloride and providing the facility with operational and capital savings.
