WQP spoke with Dow Water & Process Solutions Global Senior Application Development Specialist Fredrick W. Vance, Ph.D., about advances in arsenic removal research and the challenges of keeping costs at a minimum, responsible waste handling and continually improving adsorbent media.
LayneRT is an NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certified and approved arsenic removal media. It is a hydrous iron oxide-impregnated resin that efficiently binds arsenic and never needs backwashing. LayneRT was designed for use in the npXtra series of home treatment systems to effectively reduce arsenic. Tanks are connected by a proprietary control head that provides valves for sampling influent and effluent of both tanks.

Arsenic and uranium in drinking water supplies
LayneRT is a hydrous iron oxide impregnated resin that efficiently binds arsenic and never needs backwashing. It is engineered in a single-column design to treat a full cold-water flow so no special low-flow faucet is needed. The POU system provides simple installation and comfortably fits under most sinks. Because system performance is tied to site-specific water chemistry, SolmeteXWater has integrated a comprehensive sampling program into the npXtra system to ensure continued performance. Chemists regularly analyze your customer’s water quality by sending them pre-paid sample kits.
