Ion Exchange

How it Works PFOS Treatment

Ion Exchange is often used in reducing metals and cations in groundwater remediation and Wastewater Treatment. It now is a proven treatment for PFOS-PFOA in groundwater remediation and surface water treatment.                

Ion exchange is a very simple method for treating PFOA and PFOS Water is taken from the source and processed through a Ion Exchange media vessel.  The vessel is sized for the flow rate and concentrations. 

We offer two media types.  One time use and regenerable.  

Our one time use has been so successful , over 150,000 bed volumes treated on one site with no breakthrough it may not be cost effective to have a regeneration system,  

We offer an ion exchange media that can be regenerated.. 


Advantages

Purofine PFA694E Exceeds EPA and State Regulations Removal Criteria

EPA Drinking water standards is 70 parts per trillion New Jersey  lowered ist standard to 40 ppt and Vermont and New Hampshire are going to 20ppt. Delaware is going to 6 ppt   The PFA694E has the capabilities of 3  or less parts per trillion in a single pass .  It is currently the most cost effective way of treating PFOA and PFOS in water.


When compared to carbon out Ion Exchange system  the systems can has  a footprint  50% less, and last 10 time longer. 


If you have a domestic use our POE system cannot be beat for efficiency.  The system has a low profile , small footprint  and can last for over a year. See or link to our POE Treatment section.
