Water distributes from public water systems within the U.S. are required to meet EPA’s National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWR) that set mandatory water quality standards for drinking water contaminants. In addition, EPA has established National Secondary Drinking Water Regulations (NSDWRs) that set non-mandatory water quality standards for 15 contaminants. They are established as guidelines to assist public water systems in managing their drinking water for aesthetic considerations, such as taste, color, and odor.
Yet municipal water, although meeting drinking water standards, may still have levels of TDS, hardness (calcium and magnesium), iron, carbonate, sulfate and metals that are detrimental to industrial applications such as boilers, cooling towers, closed loops, and processes causing reduced performance of and damage to to facility equipment through scaling, fouling, or corrosion. Furthermore, the levels of constituents in the municipal water can vary day to day.
Aqua Clear engineers, designs and manufactures industrial filtration, reverse osmosis and deionization systems to safeguard extend the life of clients’ capital equipment and improve operating expenditures.
Aqua Clear’s product offering includes:
- Water Softeners to remove hardness
- Media Filtration including Activated Carbon Filters to remove chlorine and organic contaminants and Next Sand to remove suspended solids
- Ultrafiltration/Microfiltration (UF/MF) membranes to remove suspended solids, colloidal material and high molecular weight organics
- Nanofiltration to remove hardness as a chemical-free alternative to the use of softeners or to remove dissolved organics such as color from water
- Reverse Osmosis to remove the total dissolved solids (TDS) comprised of salts and minerals
- EDI and DI to produce ultrapure water (resistivity of 18 million ohm-cm [18 megohm] and conductivity of 0.055 microsiemens).
Aqua Clear also offers both chemical and Membrane Healthcare programs for filtration, ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis systems.
