WWIF challenges Safe Water Team to a dollar-for-dollar match towards the purchase of 500 filters
Guillermo Guzman's recent visit to Bagliga and neighboring villages in northern Ghana reinforced his desire to do more. Upon his return to the U.S., the founder and CEO of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) contacted Jim Bodenner, Safe Water Team (SWT) executive director, to discuss future collaboration between the two organizations in Ghana and other countries where SWT oversees distribution centers, including Kenya, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Honduras.
FX ChloraGuard carbon blocks provide five times more chloramine reduction capacity than standard carbon blocks. With more than 70 million Americans drinking chloraminated water, the need for chloramine filtration products has never been greater. These carbon blocks are available in all standard sizes for POU, POE and light commercial applications.
Dust-free GreensandPlus finely granulated media for drinking water applications requires minimal backwashing upon installation — usually less than 10 minutes. It removes iron, manganese, arsenic, radium and hydrogen sulfide for municipal, industrial, POU, POE and other applications. It has WQA Gold Seal certification and is available in 1⁄2-cu-ft bags on pallets or 2,205-lb bulk sacks.
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.
