As winter becomes nothing more than a memory and the days get warmer, our thoughts are quickly turning to the lazy, hazy days of summer. And nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a dip in the pool.
UV systems offer treatment option with fewer chemicals
About 55% of adults in the U.S. drink coffee daily, according to the National Coffee Assn. Coffee shops have helped consumers develop an appreciation for specialty coffee. Higher-grade coffee beans, improved roasting methods and better brewing equipment have improved product quality and increased customer expectations. Because coffee is about 99% water, water quality is critical to the brewing process.
Treatment systems provide high-quality water for coffee chain
The High Output (HO) line of UV water treatment systems is designed for commercial and industrial applications. These products are intended for disinfection, ozone destruction and total organic carbon reduction, and are available in flow rates from 30 to 800 gpm. Each system is specifically engineered to provide optimized flow and retention time to effectively reduce bacteria by up to 99.9%. Dosage levels of 30,000 µw seconds per sq cm and higher at rated flow provide effective UV treatment.
For our protection, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established enforceable guidelines by which municipalities must abide and well owners should abide. These guidelines are known as maximum contaminant levels (MCLs).
Filtration systems remove arsenic from school’s drinking water
Membrane processes can be classified in many ways, based on nature, structure or driving force. Hydrostatic pressure differences are used in microfiltration (MF), nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO) and gas separation as the driving force for mass transport through the membrane.
Growing range of applications spans the water treatment spectrum
UV Superstore Inc. launched a new website for improved user experience and enhanced functionality. It features an extensive search and cross-reference of replacement UV lamps, quartz sleeves and other consumables for use in most UV water and air treatment systems. The new website features UV Superstore brand UV treatment systems, with models for residential and commercial/industrial applications. Designed to give the user access to the company’s knowledge base, which comes from many years of experience, the new website is designed as an online tool to find “anything UV.”
Rosedale offers a wide variety of filtration systems for environmental and remediation markets. The automatic backwashing filtration system determines when the dirt load is too great and backwashes the element clean, all unattended. Rosedale filters can remove large quantities of sediment, hydrocarbons and protozoan cysts such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium. With high flow rates and dirt-holding capacities, they will meet a wide variety of needs. Elements are easily disposed of by incineration or at solid waste landfills.
No-Drip faucets have a chrome-plated polypropylene HFSL body with ¾-in. 16 UNF threads. They mount to dispensers and containers with a ¾-in. hole dia-meter. They use standard H Line uppers, including the 2-5PSC bonnet and child-resistant Touch Guard upper. Rated for ambient and cold temperatures, the faucets have flow rates of 1.51 gpm. They are ideal for glass, plastic and ceramic beverage and water dispensers and containers.
The RIO Zuni generates 1 or 2 lb of chlorine-equivalent mixed oxidant solution chemistry from salt for biofilm and airborne bacterial control in process and makeup water disinfection per day. The system is designed for minimal maintenance with no storage or handling of hazardous chemicals. It can handle up to 170 mg/L hardness without softening and has an optional integrated brine tank and remote monitoring capabilities. This cost-effective solution is ideal for industrial and commercial cooling towers.
The Hybrid DI with Crosscharge technology offers the benefits of traditional water softening and RO in a single system without requiring salt. This capacitive deionization system uses low-voltage direct current to deliver bottled-quality water where cost and space limitations are key considerations.
