The contract renews a five-year agreement with the FDA
Evoqua Water Technologies has been awarded a renewal contract to supply the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) Arkansas Regional Laboratory in Jefferson, Ark., with its ultra-pure laboratory deionized water system.
The success of FDA activities to protect public health often depends on the ability of its laboratories to quickly and accurately analyze samples. Ultra-pure water is key to accurate analysis and suggesting corrective action.
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.
Everyone wants pure drinking water, but traditional point-of-use (POU) purification systems sometimes drive consumers toward bottled water. Pitcher-based filtration systems remove few contaminants. Conventional RO systems treat water at low flow rates and generally require a storage tank. Another factor is taste. For example, RO filtration systems remove nearly all of the minerals that contribute to taste.

Higher pH solutions, through the addition or use of alkalis such as sodium hydroxide, sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate, will result in severely decreased uranium regeneration.
Measures to reduce uranium in the drinking water supply
Frequently there are inconsistencies between the effectiveness of two regenerations even though the same procedure was followed.
Ion exchange resins are regenerated every day, and whether regenerating in huge vessels or regenerating in small laboratory columns, mixed beds or two beds, the object of the regeneration is the same: to restore the exhausted resin back to its proper ionic form for service.
Troubleshooting regeneration systems
There are many niche markets for the water treatment dealer to pursue. A multitude of industries rely on a consistent source of deionized water for manufacturing and production, and as a source of makeup water for power generation and process water.
