WQP learned which educational sessions were most popular among attendees at the 2017 WQA Convention & Exposition.
BIF, LLC a leading manufacturer in water technology, announced that NSF International completed NSF Certification of their potable water tank mixing system to NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects.
The system’s materials of construction were tested and certified against NSF/ANSI Standard 61 at the Ann Arbor, Michigan laboratories of NSF International, an independent, not-for-profit organization that certifies products and writes standards. NSF Standard 61 certification is designed to ensure that products do not contribute contaminants into drinking water that could cause adverse health effects.
"By having their product certified by NSF, BIF’s clients can rest assured that the BIF systems will not contribute harmful levels of contaminants into drinking water and will meet state requirements in regards to health safety," said Dave Purkiss, general manager of NSF International’s water distribution systems program. "I congratulate them on taking this extra step to assure product quality and customer satisfaction. NSF will conduct on-going audits and testing to ensure continued conformance to Standard 61."
According to Larry Rice of BIF, "The BIF potable water mixing system is designed to increase water circulation within the storage tank. By creating turnover in the tank, there is a more uniform distribution of disinfection chemicals. Greater consistency of disinfection chemical helps reduce the need to add chemicals down stream of the storage structure. It is this unique capability along with NSF Certification that makes the product indispensable to water suppliers looking for additional methods to improve water quality." Rice added, "We look forward to continuing our work with NSF as our business grows and we certify additional products."
