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.

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.

Technology Overview- SafeGuard™ H2O In-Situ Stannous and Tin Dioxide Generator

SafeGuard™ H2O is a fully automated, on-demand, in-situ generator of stannous (reducing agent) and tin dioxide (adsorbent), coupled with online monitoring capability developed by AMS to address waterborne and airborne contaminants. The system removes Cr(VI), Cu, and Pb from drinking water and Cr(VI), Hg and Se from wastewater; acts as corrosion inhibitor for lead pipes and cooling systems; adsorbs H2S, NOx, SO2 from industrial emissions. The fully integrated and online SafeGuard H2O treatment approach eliminates the pitfalls of conventional systems and aids in the delivery of an affordable and reliable remediation process. SafeGuard H2O is integrated with an online contaminant monitoring capability. There are no similar technologies to SafeGuard H2O that integrate a low life-time cost contaminant treatment system with real-time performance controls.
