AMS Talks: The Value of Data to Aeration and THM Removal

In this episode of AMS Talks, Value of Data series, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Bryan Galvin, President of B&V Enterprises, discuss the challenges and opportunities in managing trihalomethanes (THMs) in drinking water systems and the role of real-time and predicative THM data in designing and operating a highly effective and cost-efficient aeration system. Learn about the operational and process benefits that can be achieved by implementing real-time online THM monitors, such as the AMS online THM-100™ analyzer, into your disinfection byproduct mitigation strategy.

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.

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.

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.

AMS Selected to the AFCP and Game Changers Innovation Challenge to Treat NOx

AMS has been selected to the Advanced Fuel Cycle Programme (AFCP) and Game Changers cross-sector solutions challenge for the treatment of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from nuclear fuel recycling off-gases to minimize the environmental impact of recycling operations. AFCP is led in partnership with the U.K. Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) who are collaborating with leading industrial, academic and research institutions to investigate the role of advanced nuclear fuels and fuel cycles for a Net Zero greenhouse gas emission future. AMS has been awarded funding to complete feasibility studies based on its unique SafeGuard™ H2O fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous and tin dioxide. AMS will be demonstrating the power of tin to secure a clean energy future for all.
