The MWF refrigerator filter is NSF-certified and removes cysts plus a range of contaminants, including lead and mercury. In addition, it has been tested by a third party to remove more than 94% of five trace pharmaceuticals: ibuprofen, atenolol, fluoxetine, progesterone and trimethoprim. The filter is available for use in GE side-by-side and French door refrigerators.
The UGACR chloramine reduction cartridge is a cost-effective POU option for reducing chloramines in municipal water supplies. The cartridge uses catalytic coconut shell carbon that acts as a chloramine “grabber.” It is available in 10- and 20-in. lengths, as well as 2.5- and 4.5-in. ODs, making it compatible with most standard filter housings.
Report says smart strategies and products can tap growth rates in emerging economies
Product differentiation and innovation are key in targeting the $14 billion market for point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) water treatment products in developing nations, some of which will grow at an annual rate of nearly 20%, according to Lux Research.
Overall, the market is growing at a modest 2.2% annually as countries such as China and South Korea reach maturity. But poorer countries such as Bangladesh and Myanmar offer remarkably high annual growth rates of up to 19%.
The 3M Pro RO drinking water filtration system uses multistage filtration and includes a high-pressure booster that keeps consistent pressure. It is able to deliver 36 to 50 gal of clean water per day. The system has an electronic pressure switch set to activate at 40 psi and shut off at 60 psi. It is compact and can be installed centrally in a home. With its quick tank recovery, the system is convenient for sinks in kitchens, baths, wet bars and refrigerators.
Nearly everyone involved in the restaurant industry has an interesting experience to tell. One such situation occurred in the northeastern U.S., in a town where serious water contamination issues were found in the municipal water (and were later immortalized in the John Travolta film, “A Civil Action”). A customer walked into a local restaurant years after the situation was resolved. When the customer approached the counter, the following dialogue took place:
RO treatment system provides high-quality water for better ice
A group of 400 native Peruvian Amazonians known as the Maijuna desperately searched for answers to help reduce their high child mortality rate when it became clear that their drinking water was one of the major culprits.
Water filtration system provides Amazon villages with cleaner water
The UV-Pearl uses UV-C LED technology, allowing instant full intensity on startup and mercury-free water treatment. The compact system can operate as a standalone unit or be integrated into OEM devices, ultrapure water generators, medical sterilization equipment and other POU applications. It uses UV LED lamps, which emit waves of light in the deep UV spectral range that destroy microorganisms on a cellular level. The lamps can be tuned to different wavelengths to target specific pathogens.
Gravity-based device will first be launched in India
HaloSource Inc. has entered into a development and production agreement with Tupperware Brands Corp. to provide its patented HaloPure technology in cartridges for Tupperware’s new line of gravity-based water purifiers, which will be initially launched through Tupperware India.
The DayOne Waterbag provides water supply collection, transport, treatment and protected storage
International Medical Corps announced at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting a commitment to action to address the lack of clean water following natural disasters, when the number of deaths caused by disease can exceed those caused by the disaster itself. International Medical Corps will pilot and pre-position the DayOne Waterbag, which uses water purification packets developed by Procter & Gamble (P&G).
