New Year, New Initiatives

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

When you send the exhausted resin to ABA, we regenerate the strong acid component to split the water’s salts, and also regenerate the strong base component to remove chlorides and sulfates and complete the regeneration process. We carefully control the chemical mix, temperatures, flows, dwell times and other factors to optimize performance. We produce a consistently high quality resin for single bed or mixed bed use. During regeneration, we also strip away toxic byproducts, such as zinc, copper, and other metals which could otherwise lead to environmental control problems. The process restores the deionizing resin’s hydroxide form, and regenerates the hydrogen form as well. So we're able to return to you regenerated resin that equals and, depending on the original brand and mix, even exceeds the performance of virgin resin.
