The Latest Advances in Removing PFAS from Water

PFAS has made headlines recently and caused concern because these compounds have been detected in drinking water supplies across the country. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry has determined that PFAS accumulation in the human body can have adverse health effects, and in response, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set a drinking water lifetime health advisory limit of 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA and PFOS. These are some of the lowest limits ever established for a contaminant.

Storage Challenges of Wastewater Treatment Chemicals

Wastewater treatment requires more aggressive chemicals—and in larger amounts—than municipal drinking water treatment. As a result, it is vital to properly store the chemicals used in the wastewater treatment process.

How To Store De-Icing Fluids Safely

Winter is approaching fast. With below freezing temperatures and snowstorms affecting millions of people each year, municipalities need to be ready to clear roadways and maintain equipment. De-icing fluid is used to break down ice and frost on roadways and aircrafts.

The type of substance used for de-icing depends on its application, the amount of snowfall and winter temperatures. There are several chemicals used in the de-icing process, including brine, magnesium chloride, propylene glycol, and ethylene glycol. Brine is the most popular of these chemicals, but it can damage vehicles or rebar on roadways.

Why Are Water Treatment Plants Converting from Chlorine Gas to Bleach?

There are several types of chlorine sources that water treatment plants can use: chlorine gas, liquid sodium hypochlorite, or onsite production. Chlorine gas can be more cost effective, but a growing number of states are converting to bulk sodium hypochlorite or bleach. If chlorine gas is more economical, why would water treatment plants convert to sodium hypochlorite?

Proper Storage Protection for Your Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Since 2010, the EPA has required every diesel truck to have a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank onboard. The DEF system sprays the fluid into the exhaust to help eliminate the NOx emissions in diesel engines. DEF is a combination of urea and deionized water, and it is critical that the solution stay pure. Impurities will cause the DEF system to stop, which will shut down the operation of the truck.

We work with DEF manufacturers and distributors to provide reliable storage solutions that ensure their DEF stays 100% pure.

How to Save on Wastewater Treatment Chemical Storage Costs

It comes as no surprise that a new wastewater treatment plant can cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Upgrading a plant can cost several million dollars as well. Yet, the chemical storage tanks that go into those plants are one of the least expensive items ranging from $1,000 to $40,000 each depending on the size and chemical configuration. That’s just a drop in the bucket (so to speak) of the total project cost.

Trends in the Potable Water Industry


In 2014, the
water storage systems market in North America was valued at $2.45 billion, and it’s projected to top $4 Billion by 2020. As freshwater resources are becoming more scarce in growing population centers, and concerns over water conservation are increasing, potable water storage is becoming a big deal. Municipalities, commercial industries, and even residential markets need to make the most of their potable water storage systems.
