Aqueous Vets (AV), a solutions provider for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) treatment, has launched a water treatment cartridge system designed to remove PFAS, arsenic, and other contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) from groundwater. The plug and play system treats flows from 5-400gallons/min (gpm). It offers leasing options to eliminate capital expenditures, attractive to communities lacking capital funding.
“Upcoming PFAS regulations will be challenging, expensive, and a drain on the resources of water systems, particularly those in small or underserved communities,” said AV president and CEO Rob Craw. In a statement, he said that this new product line expands AV concept to commission commitment and provides treatment options that address range of flow applications and capacities, “from rural 10gpm plant to the largest utilities requiring 30 million gallons per day (MGD) or more”. He added, “This customisable system enables utilities of all sizes to remain in compliance and achieve treatment objectives without the capital expense.”
Furthermore, its new NSF certified product line offers the flexibility of increasing flows or treating multiple contaminates by selecting the specific filter to meet treatment goals. These systems also reportedly address long term waste concerns with responsible and certified media disposal with a self-disposal system.
“It also puts control of ongoing operations and maintenance back into the hands of the utilities, where it belongs,” said Craw. “It eliminates the need for outside design, install or service, giving utilities independence from third-party media service providers.”
