NSF/ANSI 419: Public Drinking Water Equipment Performance – Filtration evaluates the performance of municipal water filtration technologies in removing Cryptosporidium
Global public health organization NSF Intl. published the first consensus-based American National Standard to evaluate the performance of municipal water filtration technologies in removing Cryptosporidium from public drinking water supplies. The new standard—NSF/ANSI 419: Public Drinking Water Equipment Performance – Filtration—incorporates state and federal regulatory requirements, assisting state regulators in verifying compliance while reducing time and costs for manufacturers by streamlining the testing process.
When industry moves into a neighborhood, residents might say, “Not in my backyard.” Jobs, an infusion to local economy and ancillary businesses are great—“just don’t build it within sight of my yard.”
But the naysayers should look on the bright side. Most industry requires cooling towers, and cooling towers scrub pollen, insects, dust, debris and other allergens from the air throughout the surrounding community. So industry can be a good neighbor after all, if it helps alleviate your hay fever.
Automatic self-cleaning filters ease the task of removing suspended solids in cooling towers
The availability of commercial-grade high-flow filters and housing systems offers benefits for manufacturers across all industries, particularly for reverse osmosis (RO) prefiltration or filtering water and wastewater. These types of large, pleated filters offer a large filtration area, lowering cost and frequency of filter replacements and reducing environmental impact.
High-flow filters can increase efficiency & lower costs
