Metal-free flowmeters are well suited for ultrapure water, deionized water and highly corrosive applications. The float is guided by polysulfone ridges that are molded into the meter body. Floats are constructed of PTFE, allowing no metal contaminants into the fluid path. Adapters are constructed of polysulfone, PVC or PVDF, depending on model; and O-ring seals are FKM (EP is optional). Optional socket-fusion 63-mm fittings also are offered.
The Neo Pure High Efficiency Melt Blown Filter Series consists of 100% polypropylene depth filters. These cartridges effectively and economically reduce sediment, dirt and particulates for commercial and industrial applications, and are offered in a variety of lengths and end cap configurations. Each of the filters is made in the U.S., utilizes FDA-compliant materials and is certified by WQA to NSF/ANSI standards 61 and 42.
New Axeon L1-Series light commercial RO systems are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food and beverage preparation, aquariums, hydroponics, misting and more. The 200- to 300-gpd systems offer quality and reliability. They feature a new single-pump design, extra-low-energy membranes with auto flush, extensive pre- and post-filtration, and a compact wall-mount space-saving design that is simple to install, energy efficient and competitively priced.
Filmtec Seamaxx RO elements offer low energy consumption and an optimized module design that helps maximize the productivity of a desalination system with low differential pressure, low cleaning frequency and high cleaning efficiency. Producing up to 99.7% water purity, up to 10% energy savings and less fouling at high operating flux, they are ideal for applications that treat medium to high TDS, brine and high-salinity brackish water.
The island of Anguilla in the British West Indies is one of the northernmost Leeward Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Like many Caribbean islands, tourism is its main industry, with more than 100,000 visitors each year.
Firm designs reverse osmosis systems for two Anguilla resorts
In 2007, Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins organization began constructing Target Field, an approximately 40,000-seat stadium located in the heart of Minneapolis. The organization’s goal was to make it a LEED-certified professional sports venue, which would recognize its sustainable building strategies and practices.
Target Field receives LEED certification with innovative rainwater reuse system
The Reo-Pure LP3 Series of light commercial RO systems is the next generation of the Reo-Pure LP-ES series. This new design offers even lower energy consumption, added safety features, and the same high production capabilities, all inside a single compact system. The systems are fully assembled, factory tested and sure to provide years of trouble-free operation with quick and easy maintenance. The LP3 series has capacities ranging from 50 to 1,750 gpd.
The technology was selected based on permeate quality, energy consumption and chemical consumption compared with competitive products
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) installed its Puron HF ultrafiltration (UF) modules at a major steel mill in Inner Mongolia, China. The system is the first large application of the product in the metals industry, with a capacity of 57,600 cu meters per day (15.2 million gal per day).
Residential drinking water treatment unit products have many standards and protocols available to companies to demonstrate that their products have been tested and certified to verify that the materials that come into contact with drinking water are not harmful, the products are structurally sound and the performance reduction claims are accurate. Commercial products were seemingly left in the dust, however, and end users do not have a significant amount of guidance within the standards to make the same distinctions about these larger systems.
Testing & certification options for commercial water treatment systems
On April 11, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its 2014 to 2018 Strategic Plan, with goals that include protecting U.S. waters, ensuring the safety of chemicals, and protecting human health and the environment through enhanced compliance activities.
