Seawater desalination system provides free, clean drinking water to residents and workers in Uribia La Guajira, Colombia
AMPAC USA has supplied the Red Cross Society in Uribia La Guajira, Colombia, with its most recent water purification system. The company designed and fabricated the mobile seawater desalination water maker SWRO100K-LX to help the Red Cross Society workers and local residents have free access to pure drinking water. This project was completed in January 2015 and the latest reports state that the Red Cross Society is satisfied with the results.
Arizona correctional facility reduces TDS with reverse osmosis system
In 2013, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by Valentine Eng. to participate in a design/build project that was ongoing at the Red Rock Correctional Center facility in Eloy, Ariz. CCA is the parent company and is an operator of privately owned and operated prisons throughout the U.S.
R14 Series reverse osmosis (RO) systems for water purification in commercial settings are ideal for applications including municipal water treatment, steam boiler and steam sterilizer makeup, laboratory use, spot-free car washes, food processing, and metal plating and finishing, as well as for water for humidification.
The compact, wall-mounted, heavy-duty RO systems come in three models for flow rates up to 5,400 gal per day (gpd). They are available with brass or stainless steel fittings.
The Casarte washing machine is equipped with Dow Water & Process Solutions’ Purinze UF technology, allowing it to reduce water consumption by 30% and improve water quality by removing up to 99% of common bacteria. The porous hollow fibers of about 20 to 30 nm in diameter allow water to pass through while blocking bacteria and mites.
AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
Configurable RO housing optimizes membrane serviceability and footprint
Evoqua Water Technologies introduced its new Vantage M41 reverse osmosis (RO) system for industrial applications to Asia.
The system is suitable for the production of process ingredient water, rinse water, food ingredient water, safe drinking water, boiler feedwater, ion exchange pretreatment, RO reject reclaim, wastewater recycling and many more uses. The compact skid system requires a footprint of 32.5 by 32 in. and has a height of 72.7 in., which allows it to fit through most standard doorways.
New L1-Series light commercial RO systems are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food and beverage preparation, aquariums, hydroponics, misting and more. The 200- to 300-gpd systems feature a new single-pump design, extra-low-energy membranes with auto flush, pre- and post-filtration, and a compact wall-mount space-saving design that is simple to install. They also are energy efficient.
New 2.5-in. HF5-Series ultra-low-energy membranes feature a low nominal operating pressure of 80 psi. The membranes can produce up to 2,500 gpd with 98.5% salt rejection for improved system performance. They are ideal for use in applications with cold feedwater temperatures, or where there is a decrease in required operating pressure. Quality tested to ensure they meet the high standards, the membranes also are manufactured in the U.S.
Water scarcity is a universal and growing issue. With huge projected population growth, this problem will only continue to increase. The World Economic Forum reported that the world’s population surpassed 7 billion in 2011, and is expected to reach 9.3 billion by 2050. Urbanization, industrialization, pollution, increased energy needs and climate change all reinforce the stress of population growth, making water accessibility an even more pressing issue.

Filtering water in the washing machine reduces water consumption by 30%
Through a joint development with Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), Haier Group has commercialized the first Casarte eco-friendly washing machine using Dow ultrafiltration (UF) technology. The washing machine is designed and built with the new Dow Purinze UF module, which facilitates more than 30% reduction in water consumption while improving water quality by removing as much as 99 percent of common bacteria.
