Calgon Carbon Corporation announced the introduction of a family of adsorption systems that remove arsenic from drinking water. The systems incorporate CalMedia technology, a full line of modular adsorption equipment, laboratory and pilot testing services, and aftermarket field services. Calgon Carbon also provides flexible financing options.
The arsenic removal systems enable customers to meet the approaching implementation date for EPA regulations that lower the maximum contaminant level for arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. By offering a broad portfolio of adsorptive media, such as activated alumina, titanium- and iron-based adsorbents, and ion exchange resin, Calgon Carbon can match the technology and package of equipment and services that is best suited to address the customer's specific water quality issues.
The new arsenic removal systems are just one component of the company's CalSolutions technologies that were developed to remove a variety of contaminants such as perchlorate, nitrate, and MTBE/TBA in both drinking water treatment and groundwater remediation applications.
