AdEdge Technologies, Inc., announced test results rating its Bayoxide E33 media as the number one performing media in a recent SANDIA National Labs Pilot Test at Socorro, N.M.
The report, prepared by SANDIA National Laboratories, documents the results of a pilot demonstration program at the Socorro Springs, N.M. site. Performance evaluations were made on five different adsorptive media with AdEdge Bayoxide E33 outperforming the others in the pilot tests. The pilot demonstration was a project of the Arsenic Water Technology Partnership program, a partnership between the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Research foundation, SNL and WERC (a consortium for environmental Education and Technology Development).
Adedge Technologies’ Bayoxide E33 is designed to reduce up to 99% of total arsenic, including both arsenic (III) and arsenic (V), and is also effective in reducing other heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, chromium, antimony and molybdenum. Developed in the mid-nineties, this ferric oxide-based product has been successfully used in large-scale drinking water applications since 1999. The AD33 media is discardable when spent and requires no chemicals or regeneration.
“Today, pilot tests are an accepted method to estimate the performance of full scale treatment systems,” said Rich Cavagnoro, president of AdEdge Technologies. “The high adsorptive capacity of our Bayoxide E33 in full scale projects that AdEdge has installed for customers throughout North America reflects the SANDIA report findings. It’s good news for our customers and those seeking highly effective arsenic removal technology that results in lower long-term operating costs.”
