Manage Corrosion and Ensure Compliance with SafeGuard™ H2O

Southsea STS, a U.K.-based technical services company specializing in water quality, has a history of embracing and implementing new technologies and ideas to support compliance and control in buildings. Recently, Southsea has been evaluating new technologies for corrosion management as part of a pilot program with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) in the UK. Richard Lawson, Director for Southsea STS, gives a behind the scenes look of the pilot project on the use of AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O stannous generator to provide corrosion inhibition water treatment for closed-loop heating and cooling systems. Current corrosion inhibitors are relatively expensive, potentially toxic to handle, and can have difficulty meeting requirements imposed for disposal. The SafeGuard™ H2O stannous-based solution can help organizations better manage corrosion and ensure compliance.

Technology Overview- Effective Management of Corrosion and Biofilm in Cooling and Heating Systems with SafeGuard™ H2O

Many industries, hospitals, institutions, and buildings are faced with the inevitable task of managing corrosion and biofilm in their cooling and heating systems. With the SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent corrosion management system these facilities can extend their useful life, reduce maintenance expenditures and foster sustainability. SafeGuard H2O is an innovative electrochemical water treatment solution developed by AMS. A non-toxic and environmentally safe stannous reagent is generated on-site using only tin and electricity and is delivered in a tightly controlled dose. This all-in-one reagent acts as both a biocide and a corrosion inhibitor. The fully integrated and online SafeGuard H2O treatment approach eliminates the pitfalls of conventional corrosion and biofilm management systems and aids in the delivery of an affordable and reliable process.

Technology Overview- SafeGuard™ H2O In-Situ Stannous and Tin Dioxide Generator

SafeGuard™ H2O is a fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous (reducing agent) and tin dioxide (adsorbent), coupled with online monitoring capability developed by AMS to address waterborne and airborne contaminants. The system removes Cr(VI), Cu, and Pb from drinking water and Cr(VI), Hg and Se from wastewater; acts as corrosion inhibitor for lead pipes and cooling systems; adsorbs H2S, NOx, SO2 from industrial emissions. The fully integrated and online SafeGuard H2O treatment approach eliminates the pitfalls of conventional systems and aids in the delivery of an affordable and reliable remediation process. SafeGuard H2O is integrated with an online contaminant monitoring capability. There are no similar technologies to SafeGuard H2O that integrate a low life-time cost contaminant treatment system with real-time performance controls.

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!
