AMS Introduces MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ Lead Corrosion Risk Management System

AMS introduces MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ — a novel automated and unattended real-time lead corrosion risk management system for monitoring the risk of exposure to lead contamination. MetalGuard Lead Alert! is specifically designed to address lead contamination concerns by providing high frequency, timely and accurate predictive data on dissolved and total lead in water samples to alert utilities and consumers of an increased risk of lead contamination, before lead contamination occurs and impacts consumers and their health.

Read the press release.


SafeGuard™ is an automated lead analyzer for monitoring exposure to lead contamination from lead pipes, solder and brass fittings. It is designed to be used independently or in conjunction with MetalGuard™ Lead Alert! ™ when this warns of an increase in contamination risk.

The benefits of using this novel analyzer include the rapid analysis of the safety of drinking water in homes, schools, day-cares exposed to the risk of lead contamination, delivery of results in minutes to identify contamination sites far faster than laboratory-based analysis, accurate measurement of total lead, a feature not available with hand-held analyzers and rapid delivery of results ensures quarantined sites can be released more quickly after lead remediation.

TRUMPF Optimizes Ion Exchange System With Reliable and Continuous Data From Real-Time Arsenic Analyzer

Faced with high IEX process waste disposal costs, TRUMPF, a manufacturer of laser diodes made from Gallium Arsenide substrates (GaAs) wafers, undertook efforts to optimize the IEX process and produce less hazardous waste. One of the process improvements included the installation of the MetalGuard Arsenic online arsenic analyzer to continuously measure influent and effluent arsenic levels in real-time, providing TRUMPF with a stream of accurate and reliable arsenic data to measure the performance of its IEX system and ensure regulatory compliance. Timely and accurate arsenic results enabled TRUMPF to optimize rinse water reuse as well as to optimize and reduce IEX backwash frequencies, increasing media performance and reducing hazardous waste generation. These process improvements have resulted in an estimated annual cost savings of $100K for the facility.

AMS Dedicated to Reducing Drinking Water Lead Contamination Risks

Recent drinking water lead contamination crises in Flint, Mich., and Newark, N.J. are raising concerns about the ability of traditional lead monitoring programs to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. AMS is dedicated to the development and commercialization of the company’s solutions for reducing the risk of lead contamination by providing water systems and communities real-time lead monitoring solutions to protect public health.
