Drinking Water Filtration

  1. Membrane Conference Offers Networking, New Technology

    AMTA, along with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) have teamed up to offer an alternative, presenting their third “Membrane Technology Conference & Exposition,” held March 10-14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  2. Janus Nanotubes Key To Low Pressure Membranes, Molecular Level Filtration

    Janus nanotubes can be used to make membranes with pores below one nanometer that only require the application of low pressure. Such small pores offer filtration down to the molecular level. 

  3. Is This The Future Of RO?

    A Q&A with Richard Stover, executive VP of Desalitech, discussing a reverse osmosis (RO) innovation that greatly increases recovery rates and overall efficiency, while also enhancing flexibility and reliability.

  4. Biological Filtration: The Future Of Drinking Water Treatment?

    Costs of handling wastewater treatment residuals, DBP regulations, and new contaminants that are responsive to biological degradation are all on the rise — factors that make biological treatment an effective solution.

  5. A Simple Solution To DBPs, Color Issues, And Membrane Fouling

    Faced with escalating O&M and regulatory concerns due to membrane fouling, a Colorado drinking water facility discovered the key to success: chemical control.

  6. Membrane Trust: A Solution To Capacity And Contaminants

    By converting from sand filtration to membrane filtration, Forest Park Water (FPW) improved its water quality, increased capacity, and removed operational issues inherent to multimedia filters. Learn how the utility went from conventional to “advanced” while keeping its footprint and its finances in check.

  7. Solving DBPs: Priceless

    Plant upgrades for the Lima, OH, drinking water facility were nearly $14 million, and the solution chosen — post-filter granular activated carbon (GAC) adsorption — wasn’t necessarily the cheapest option. But when water quality is at stake, capital isn’t the only cost to consider.
