Filtration Systems

Company Reference: 

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. 

Disinfection System

Company Reference: 

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.

From Lower DOC to Lower DBPs

The town of Hudson Bay, with a population of 1,500 people, is located in the Red Deer Valley, between the Porcupine and Pasquia Hills in northeast Saskatchewan, Canada. It is widely known for its forestry, agriculture and wildlife.

Like many rural communities in the province, Hudson Bay is faced with treating a challenging potable water source. Its raw water is high in dissolved organic carbon (DOC), which can vary by 4 mg/L throughout the year. DOC is a known precursor to the formation of halogenated organic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) such as trihalomethanes.

Scaling Back Bacteria

The Legionella bacterium, Legionella pneumophila — the fundamental agent of Legionnaires’ disease — is a water-based organism that causes infection when inhaled in aerosol form. Legionnaires’ disease acquired its name in 1976, when an outbreak of pneumonia occurred among attendees of a convention of the American Legion in Philadelphia. Later, the bacterium causing the illness was named Legionella.

Catalytic Carbon for Chloramine Removal

Many water utilities across the U.S. are transitioning to chloramine for disinfection as an alternative to chlorine. This change is in response to stricter U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations on disinfection byproducts (DBPs), which are created when chlorine reacts with organics in water. Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is more stable and does not create DPBs.
