City of Alamosa Evaluates In-Situ Electrogenerated Generated Ferric Reagent to Replace Bulk Ferric and Support Arsenic Removal

While the EPA is reviewing its MCL recommendations for arsenic, utilities are preparing for the possibility of a more stringent federal standard by evaluating the efficacy of their existing arsenic removal treatment systems. Concerned with having to increase their reliance on bulk chemicals to meet a lower arsenic MCL and the associated inherent concerns, the City of Alamosa evaluated the SafeGuard™ H2O technology that generates a ferric regent on-site and on demand. Through bench-scale testing of the in-situ generated ferric reagent, the City of Alamosa has shown it can achieve arsenic removal below 1 ppb while reducing chemical use by more than 30% compared to bulk ferric.

SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6) Demonstration at the City of Banning Water Treatment Plant

In search of a reliable and economical treatment solution for Cr6 contamination, the City of Banning undertook a demonstration of the SafeGuard™ H2O in-situ reagent generation system to remove Cr6 down to non-detect levels. The fully automated SafeGuard™ H2O technology uses a certified precursor and an in-situ electrolytic generator to create a non-toxic stannous reagent onsite and on demand. The process is simple, effective, and carbon neutral.

SafeGuard™ H2O Arsenic Removal Demonstration at California American Water’s Isleton Water System

In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, speaks with Joshua Webster, water treatment operator for California American Water about the demonstration of SafeGuardH2O arsenic removal technology at the Isleton Water System. The demonstration at Isleton showed the effectiveness of SafeGuard™ H2O 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 (e.g., coagulation/filtration).

Control and Management of THMs in Drinking Water

THM levels in a water treatment system can change rapidly and are highly influenced by changes in raw quality and water age. Without real-time and high-density actual and predictive data on THMs across their networks, water treatment systems face the risks of under-treating their water or incurring substantial costs as a result of over-treatment. When integrated into a disinfection byproduct (DPB) control strategy, the AMS online THM analyzers (THM-100™, THM-100™ FP, THM-RR™) serve as an essential solution to facilitate regulatory compliance with THM standards.

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.
