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.
Specialized carbon products improve chloramine removal
Aquasana releases a pitcher and under the counter system
Aquasana introduced two filtration products at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, held March 2 to 5, 2013.
Researchers in India develop filter system to remove fluoride
Researchers in India have developed a filter system based on a medicinal herb, which they say can quickly and easily remove fluoride from drinking water. The technology described in the March issue of the International Journal of Environmental Engineering uses parts of the plant Tridax procumbens as a biocarbon filter for the ion.
MF-1000 Series pressure filters clarify water by removing sediment, turbidity, iron, unpleasant tastes and odors, suspended particles, and unwanted color. They can be used in industrial, municipal and institutional applications. Standard features include a carbon steel tank at 100 psi, epoxy and certified interior coating, digital controller, automatic valves, NEMA 1 enclosure, vent and drain ports, PVC face piping, internal piping, distributor, and high-quality media.
Zeolite natural media is an inorganic, micro-porous, alumino-silicate material with filtration properties that include a high cation exchange capacity. It is a cost-effective, environmentally safe solution for treating water, wastewater and air pollution contaminants. The media has applications in water and wastewater treatment, pollution control, aquaculture, mining, industrial oil and gas, agriculture, horticulture, food and beverage, and air filtration.
Rosedale filters can remove large quantities of sediment, hydrocarbons and protozoan cysts such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium, and are ideal for groundwater remediation and environmental concerns. They feature high flow rates and dirt-holding capacities, and are easily disposed of by incineration or at solid waste landfills.
AXEON CBF Carbon Blocks feature acid-washed, high-purity coconut-based activated carbon. Batch tested and approved, the carbon in these cartridges has been specifically developed to reduce chlorine, sediments, color, SOCs and VOCs. With high chlorine reduction and reduced carbon fines, the CBF series may become your carbon blocks of choice.

The Doulton Rio 2000 offers superior flow rates for domestic and light commercial environments. The module does not require a power supply and uses six bespoke Sterasyl ceramic filter candles to maximize flow rates even at low water pressure. The module is reusable—only the filter candles need replacement—and is available with or without a jumbo Big
WWIF founder travels to Ghana to expand the foundation's humanitarian efforts
Guillermo Guzman, founder of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF), is travelling to meet with members of the Safe Water Ghana (SWG) team to witness and assist with the deployment of filters to 50 more families in the village of Bagliga in northern Ghana. This latest deployment completes the project initiated by the students at St. Paul Lutheran School in Boca Raton, Fla.
