Advanced Lead Corrosion Control and Risk Management

Communities across the world are plagued by lead contamination and corrosion concerns, which often come to light during testing of children’s blood and after the event has occurred. AMS has developed advanced solutions for lead corrosion risk management and control. AMS’ online lead corrosion monitoring technologies are backed by actionable, high-frequency data, providing a comprehensive risk map that informs public health authorities, water treatment plant operators and consumers. AMS’ intelligent in-situ corrosion inhibitor generation and delivery technology offers a localized treatment solution that displaces orthophosphates and provides a responsive, point-of-care, effective approach to manage the multi-variant challenge of lead corrosion risk.

AMS Delivers an Affordable Treatment Solution for Hexavalent Chromium Removal in California

Hexavalent chromium (Cr6) in drinking water is a controversial topic in California. More than 20 years after the film Erin Brockovich was released raising public awareness and concern about Cr6, high levels of the contaminant continue to pose a threat to the health of thousands of consumers. To meet the need for an affordable treatment system that eliminates Cr6 from drinking water supplies and removes the barrier to a lower regulatory limit for this carcinogen, AMS developed SafeGuard™ H2O. The technology ensures a safe and affordable treatment approach to meet the Cr6 public health goal of 0.02 ppb while saving California taxpayers millions of dollars. During a pilot demonstration at the City of Los Banos, Calif., AMS’ SafeGuard H2O Cr6 treatment system proved to reduce Cr6 to non-detect levels at an annual cost per household in small communities of less than $5 per day.

Research Shows That AMS’ Online THM Monitoring Technology Is a Viable Method to Accurately Predict THM Precursor Content and Network THM Levels

A research project collaboration between the Water and Energy Technology Center at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Ma., and AMS tested a novel method for near real-time analysis of disinfection byproduct precursors and natural organic matter properties in water supplies. AMS’ online THM and THM Formation Potential monitoring technology was shown to be a viable method to accurately predict THM precursor content and network THM levels. The collaboration was funded by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

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.
