The Water Quality Assn.’s (WQA) Gold Seal product certification program continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of the industry. This is being accomplished while maintaining quality control procedures and customer service. Regulatory acceptance of Gold Seal certification has reached a new high with the addition of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program, which is now accepting the Gold Seal program for compliance of water coolers.
WQA prepares for new and ongoing ventures in 2013
The entry-level Economy RO system is made with heavy-duty glass-filled polypropylene. It offers twice the strength and durability of ABS-constructed systems. The serviceable check valve eliminates spring noise. Clearly labeled inlets and outlets, double O-ring quick-connect fittings and a handy sump wrench make installation fast and easy. An NSF-certified storage tank, chrome faucet tubing and fittings are included.
Axeon offers a comprehensive selection of light commercial RO systems. These high-quality and compact systems offer substantial savings, low maintenance and operational costs. They come pre-assembled, fully tested and ready for immediate use in applications such as beverage production, food processing, hydroponics, aquarium, misting and more.
X2 RO systems are engineered to produce high-purity water by reducing dissolved minerals, bacteria and organic impurities with product water outputs from 57,600 to 468,000 gpd. The systems are ideal for customers seeking efficient water treatment solutions for drinking water, cooling towers, boiler feed, food processing, bottling, agriculture and a variety of other applications.
The PuroPro1200 RO system is designed for applications requiring a green solution with a small footprint, low energy requirement, high TDS rejection and ease of service. The system treats 1,200 gpd at 50-psi feedwater pressure, eliminating the need for a feedwater pump. It can be installed with sumps mounted vertically or horizontally, and is ready to go right out of the box. The system can operate with either captive or atmospheric RO water storage applications.
Water purity issues in developing nations and third-world countries populate the news, but pure drinking water can be just as difficult to achieve in developed countries. In the U.S., significant amounts of tap and well water are not fit for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution that result in water contamination. Even low-level exposure to some contaminants can cause illness, including liver damage, cancer and other serious ailments.
Keeping Treatment on Track
Combination of treatment methods results in purest drinking water

In any membrane filtration system, scaling is inevitable. There are many forms of scale, some of the most common being calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate and strontium sulfate. Left unmanaged, crystal scale will accumulate and become a mass of crystals on the surface of the membrane, causing blockage. This is harmful to reverse osmosis (RO) systems because it increases operating pressure. High pressure can put stress on the system and reduce product output and efficiency levels. A severely scaled membrane easily can reduce its gallon output by more than half.
