For more than a decade, the Brunswick & Topsham Water District (BTWD) in Maine has been using the AMS THM-100™ online THM analyzer to help manage THM concerns. Over the years, the online THM analyzer has been proven a valuable tool for the utility, enabling it to better understand its treatment processes and optimize operations. In this episode of AMS Talks, Craig Douglas, P.E., General Manager at BTWD, discusses the district’s unconventional THM management journey and how the real-time data from the THM-100™ analyzer opened the utility staff’s eyes to the impact of the operational decisions they were making.Watch the video.

In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS), about the significance and impact of the company’s recent achievements and award recognitions. First, AMS was selected by Sacyr iChallenges for its open innovation programs as one of the three companies appointed as Sacyr’s global partner for online water quality monitoring. In addition, it was recently announced that AMS was chosen as the North & Northwest Breakthrough Winner of The Spectator Economic Innovator of the Year Award in partnership with Investec.Watch the video.
With increasing concerns about the quality of bulk reagents such as bulk ferric chemicals that are widely used in the water treatment industry, utilities are seeking alternative, more carbon neutral, and environmentally friendly treatment methods. AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O technology is a sustainable alternative that responds to that need. SafeGuard™ H2O has numerous advantages over traditional coagulation processes that depend on bulk ferric chloride. The system’s on-site generation of a ferrous/ferric reagent requires a smaller footprint, and it offers greater reliability to utilities looking to reduce GHG emissions. SafeGuard™ H2O also has a 30 – 50% lifetime cost advantage, considering the cost of purchasing bulk chemicals, manual process supervision, and waste disposal. SafeGuard™ H2O is poised to replace the use of hazardous bulk reagents since it does not compromise the quality of drinking water, harm the environment and it can be produced using renewable energy sources and stored for later use when these are unavailable.Read the full article.
SafeGuard™ H2O is a proven solution for utilities looking to reduce GHG emissions and remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to non-detect levels while lowering the cost of treatment (energy and operation). SafeGuard™ H2O can be powered by renewable energy, and tin sulfide, a valuable resource to multiple industries, can be recovered from the process. As a low-carbon approach to H2S removal, SafeGuard™ H2O has achieved 100% removal of H2S from reverse osmosis treated water and raw water supplies.
Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, recently visited Joaquín Murría Martín and the BIOBOX team at their facility in Zaragoza, Spain, to see the first BIOBOX® Nitrate being prepared for shipment to the US. BIOBOX Nitrate transforms nitrates in drinking or wastewater into harmless nitrogen gas through a biological process, eliminating nitrates without producing polluting byproducts. This fully automated, turnkey containerized nitrate treatment system integrates AMS’ online Instran™ nitrate analyzer for continuous, real-time control of system performance. The patented BIOBOX biological denitrification system, which is certified by SGS and NSF for the treatment of drinking water, urban or industrial wastewater, and reuse, can be deployed rapidly at the thousands of sites in the US where nitrates put at risk human health and the environment. Together, AMS and BIOBOX are delivering a transformative, intelligent and reliable nitrate treatment solution.Watch the video.
In this episode of AMS Talks, Industry Consultant Nadia Abboud speaks with Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, about the company’s recent nomination to The Spectator Economic Innovator of the Year Award in partnership with Investec. For the past six years, The Spectator has been recognizing British organizations for their entrepreneurship. Bacon explains what it means for AMS, its shareholders and colleagues, and him personally to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. Winners will be officially announced in November 2023.Watch the video.
A SafeGuard™ H2O demonstration system with a capacity of 3 gpm (150 mL/minute) was installed onsite for testing at the City of Banning’s Facility Well C2 from June-September 2022. The scope of this demonstration focused on the safe, reliable reduction of Cr6 to Cr3 using SafeGuard™ H2O electrogenerated stannous reagent. The demonstration validated the effectiveness of the SafeGuard™ H2O technology to treat Cr6 and Cr(T) below 10 ppb, granting it conditional acceptance from the California SWRCB Division of Drinking Water for use of the technology by public drinking water systems to treat Cr6 contamination.Read the full article.
SafeGuard™ H2O is an advanced intelligent treatment solution that is driving down the lifetime costs of ownership and GHG emissions of water treatment. This NSF-approved technology provides significant cost savings and a rapid ROI for facilities seeking reliable treatment for a wide range of applications (corrosion control, drinking water, resource recovery, wastewater). The SafeGuard™ H2O in-situ generation reagent technology displaces traditional treatment technologies such as Ion Exchange and Reverse Osmosis, and replaces bulk chemicals including ferric chloride, ferric sulfate, orthophosphates, organosulfides, ozone, alum and more.Read the brochure.
A recent demonstration at the City of Banning, California, validated the effectiveness of the AMS SafeGuard™ H2O technology to treat Cr6 and Cr(T) below 10 ppb, granting it conditional acceptance from the California SWRCB Division of Drinking Water for use of the technology by public drinking water systems to treat Cr6 contamination. SafeGuard™ H2O generates a non-toxic stannous reagent on demand via an electrolytic process, offering utilities of all sizes an affordable, effective and sustainable Cr6 remediation solution.Read the case study.
MetalGuard™ Iron is the first fully automated, online iron analyzer that provides dependable real-time data on dissolved, organic and total iron levels to support the delivery of safe drinking water and monitor corrosion in water transport systems. With reliable, continuous, high-frequency data on influent and effluent iron levels, MetalGuard™ Iron aids in the control and optimization of water treatment and iron contamination removal processes.Read the brochure.
