ASG has developed a water-purification technology that removes contaminants such as Arsenic, Fluoride, Lead, Iron and Manganese. The ASG oxidation media also kills bacteria and other organisms on contact in the water. Although many competing systems also remove contaminants, ASG technology offers several advantages. It’s more efficient. A given volume of ASG media removes more contaminants than competing systems. The exact amount depends on the level of contamination and the rate of water flow through the media. ASG media doesn’t require electricity to work. Some purification systems need supervision and monitoring. ASG doesn’t need someone watching over it, so water purification systems using ASG media can be applied without the need for operators. The adsorption media binds the contaminants tightly, so disposing of the media doesn’t pose a pollution risk. It is a non-hazardous solid waste. Some water purification systems require exposure to the incoming water stream for 10 minutes or more in order to take effect. With ASG media, the time needed runs between one and two minutes. Inorganic Arsenic in water is found in both the trivalent and pentavalent forms. Most filtration systems have only a limited capacity for adsorbing trivalent Arsenic, which is far more toxic than the pentavalent variety. ASG media are effective against both types. Unlike Chlorine water-purification treatments, ASG media technology doesn’t leave a chemical residue that includes a bad odor and taste. With ASG media, there’s no wasted water due to reject or back wash streams. 100 percent of the inlet water or fluid is treated and available for use. Some fluid steams have more acid or alkali than is allowable for drinking water. ASG media provides a “buffering” affect that modifies these fluid streams to a more neutral pH level, which meets the regulatory requirement.
