Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud and Sean Burke, who recently became AMS’s Director of Business Development. In this interview, Sean shares what drew him to AMS, his first impression of the company’s highly motivated team, and his thoughts on AMS’s diverse portfolio of analytical and treatment solutions designed to address trace metal, inorganic and organic contaminants. Sean also discusses the growing need for more carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly treatment options in the water sector and how the AMS SafeGuard™ H2O innovative technology solves that critical need by reducing chemical costs, minimizing supply chain disruptions, reducing logistical costs, and providing a fully automated, remotely controlled treatment option. In his new role at AMS, he will drive growth in the industrial sector and build partnerships with OEMs and distributors.View Resource
To reduce dependence on imported bulk chemicals, minimize carbon footprint and ensure final effluent discharges are within regulatory limits, wastewater treatment facilities can benefit from the SafeGuard™ H2O phosphate removal system. The novel technology, manufactured by AMS, generates a ferrous/ferric reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process, providing a sustainable and effective approach to phosphate removal. SafeGuard™ H2O has been proven in multiple bench-scale demonstrations to have repeated success removing phosphate.
Through a unique platform of advanced water treatment solutions that help enterprises of all sizes achieve water treatment process optimization and a reduction in the use of chemicals and energy, AMS is positioned for accelerated growth in 2024 across its AMS Analytics and AMS Environment divisions. In this exclusive piece “Building a Sustainable Future Through Radical Innovation,” Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, shares how AMS is advancing sustainability in the global water sector through transformative ideas, innovations, and a unique approach to customer service.View Resource
In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with AMS Senior Product Manager Vladimir Dozortsev, Ph.D., about the evolution of the SafeGuard™ H2O technology into new markets and applications by expanding into the on-site generation of a strong iron-based oxidizing reagent. The reagent can be used to treat a range of contaminants across municipal and industrial applications, including food and beverage, mining, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor. SafeGuard™ H2O provides sustainable, cost-effective and reliable water and wastewater treatment for facilities seeking environmentally friendly solutions that also reduce their reliance on bulk chemicals.View Resource
For more than a decade, the Brunswick & Topsham Water District (BTWD) in Maine has been using the AMS THM-100™ online THM analyzer to help manage THM concerns. Over the years, the online THM analyzer has been proven a valuable tool for the utility, enabling it to better understand its treatment processes and optimize operations. In this episode of AMS Talks, Craig Douglas, P.E., General Manager at BTWD, discusses the district’s unconventional THM management journey and how the real-time data from the THM-100™ analyzer opened the utility staff’s eyes to the impact of the operational decisions they were making.View Resource
In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS), about the significance and impact of the company’s recent achievements and award recognitions. First, AMS was selected by Sacyr iChallenges for its open innovation programs as one of the three companies appointed as Sacyr’s global partner for online water quality monitoring. In addition, it was recently announced that AMS was chosen as the North & Northwest Breakthrough Winner of The Spectator Economic Innovator of the Year Award in partnership with Investec.View Resource
With increasing concerns about the quality of bulk reagents such as bulk ferric chemicals that are widely used in the water treatment industry, utilities are seeking alternative, more carbon neutral, and environmentally friendly treatment methods. AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O technology is a sustainable alternative that responds to that need. SafeGuard™ H2O has numerous advantages over traditional coagulation processes that depend on bulk ferric chloride. The system’s on-site generation of a ferrous/ferric reagent requires a smaller footprint, and it offers greater reliability to utilities looking to reduce GHG emissions. SafeGuard™ H2O also has a 30 – 50% lifetime cost advantage, considering the cost of purchasing bulk chemicals, manual process supervision, and waste disposal. SafeGuard™ H2O is poised to replace the use of hazardous bulk reagents since it does not compromise the quality of drinking water, harm the environment and it can be produced using renewable energy sources and stored for later use when these are unavailable.View Resource
Join AMS at the Membrane Technology Conference (MTC23) being held in Knoxville, TN from February 20-23, 2023. Dr. Vladimir Dozortsev will be presenting results from a demonstration of the SafeGuard™ H2O arsenic removal technology on Thursday, February 23, 2023, from 8:15-8:45 am (Session THU01-02). Join us to hear more on “City of Alamosa Evaluates In-Situ Electrogenerated Ferrous Reagent to Replace Bulk Ferric and Support Arsenic Removal”.
SafeGuard™ H2O is a proven solution for utilities looking to reduce GHG emissions and remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to non-detect levels while lowering the cost of treatment (energy and operation). SafeGuard™ H2O can be powered by renewable energy, and tin sulfide, a valuable resource to multiple industries, can be recovered from the process. As a low-carbon approach to H2S removal, SafeGuard™ H2O has achieved 100% removal of H2S from reverse osmosis treated water and raw water supplies.
Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, recently visited Joaquín Murría Martín and the BIOBOX team at their facility in Zaragoza, Spain, to see the first BIOBOX® Nitrate being prepared for shipment to the US. BIOBOX Nitrate transforms nitrates in drinking or wastewater into harmless nitrogen gas through a biological process, eliminating nitrates without producing polluting byproducts. This fully automated, turnkey containerized nitrate treatment system integrates AMS’ online Instran™ nitrate analyzer for continuous, real-time control of system performance. The patented BIOBOX biological denitrification system, which is certified by SGS and NSF for the treatment of drinking water, urban or industrial wastewater, and reuse, can be deployed rapidly at the thousands of sites in the US where nitrates put at risk human health and the environment. Together, AMS and BIOBOX are delivering a transformative, intelligent and reliable nitrate treatment solution.View Resource
