GreenFlo LayneRT Arsenic 10 Filter System
|Online Auction Description|
12-inchx52-inch Vortech resin tank
The upflow system eliminates the need for backwashing or electricity to operate. Additionally, the system requires no chemicals or additives. This results in a low maintenance system with low operating costs.
LayneRT Arsenic Media
LayneRT is comprised of a hybrid resin bead that is attrition resistant and does not generate fines. It has been developed as a significant improvement on the efficiency and longevity of adsorptive arsenic media, thus lowering the operating cost associated with removing arsenic. It’s ideal blend of selectivity and durability means that it can reliably and efficiently reduce arsenic to safe consumption levels.
Removes High Arsenic Levels
Removes arsenic levels up to up to 300 ppb (.300 mg/L or ppm).
Vortech Resin Tank
Vortech resin tank has an integrated flow distribution plate that creates a stronger and more even flow through the media than standard filter gravel. This eliminates the need for gravel and ensures a more effecient system, and a cleaner, longer lasting media
These systems are intended for water supplies with minimal levels of other contaminates. See the "More Info" tab for these contaminate levels and the different methods of removing them prior to the arsenic system.
7.5 GPM Continual Flow*
Treats a continuous flow rate of 7.5 GPM and maximum flow rate of 15.0 GPM peak flow
Simple head eliminates moving parts to reduce maintenance costs
Designed for 3 bathroom and 5-6 people and/or homes with flows matching system capacities
Simple system connections and detailed installation instructions allow most homeowners to install this system themselves. For those who prefer to leave the work to a professional, most plumbers can install the system in 1-2 hours.
LayneRT has been developed as a significant improvement on the efficiency and longevity of adsorptive arsenic media, thus lowering the operating cost associated with removing arsenic (arsenate and arsenite) from water. It&roquo;s ideal blend of selectivity and durability means that LayneRT can reliably and efficiently reduce arsenic to safe consumption levels. LayneRT is a long lasting, high capacity technology that provides rapid adsorption kinetics without generating any fines. Not only does LayneRT provide optimal flow dynamics, no backwashing (no onsite residuals), and a low pressure drop, but spent media passes Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP), thereby mitigating the liability associated with waste disposal.
Arsenic is a semi-metal element in the periodic table. It is odorless and tasteless. It enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices.
Higher levels of arsenic tend to be found more in ground water sources than in surface water sources (i.e., lakes and rivers) of drinking water. The demand on ground water from municipal systems and private drinking water wells may cause water levels to drop and release arsenic from rock formations. Compared to the rest of the United States, western states have more systems with arsenic levels greater than EPA’s standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb). Parts of the Midwest and New England have some systems whose current arsenic levels are greater than 10 ppb, but more systems with arsenic levels that range from 2-10 ppb. While many systems may not have detected arsenic in their drinking water above 10 ppb, there may be geographic "hot spots" with systems that may have higher levels of arsenic than the predicted occurrence for that area.
EPA has set the arsenic standard for drinking water at .010 parts per million (10 parts per billion) to protect consumers served by public water systems from the effects of long-term, chronic exposure to arsenic. Water systems must comply with this standard by January 23, 2006, providing additional protection to an estimated 13 million Americans.
Non-cancer effects can include thickening and discoloration of the skin, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting; diarrhea; numbness in hands and feet; partial paralysis; and blindness. Arsenic has been linked to cancer of the bladder, lungs, skin, kidney, nasal passages, liver, and prostate.
When it comes to removing arsenic from your drinking water, there are several options depending on your application and contaminate level. The EPA has stated that the following methods have proven to be effective for removing arsenic to below 0.010 mg/L or 10 ppb: adsorption media, ion exchange, coagulation/filtration, oxidation/filtration, and point-of-use or point-of-entry treatment using activated alumina or reverse osmosis. The LayneRT arsenic removal media is an adsorbtion media.
