AqueoUS Vets launches water treatment cartridge system

Oct. 2, 2023
The new system can treat flows from 5-400 gpm and it capable of removing PFAS, arsenic, and other contaminants of emerging concern from groundwater.

AqueoUS Vets (AV) has announced the launch of a water treatment cartridge system designed to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), arsenic, and other contaminants of emerging concern from groundwater.

The plug-and-play system treats flows from 5-400 gallons per minute (gpm), is easy to install, operate and maintain, and offers leasing options to eliminate capital expenditures – a particularly attractive alternative for communities lacking capital funding.

“Upcoming PFAS regulations will be challenging, expensive, and a drain on the resources of all water systems, particularly those in small or underserved communities,” said Rob Craw, AV president and CEO. “With this new product line, AV expands its Concept to Commission commitment and can now provide treatment options that address the complete range of flow applications and capacities, from the smallest, rural 10-gpm plant to the largest utilities requiring 30 million gallons per day (MGD) or more. This customizable system enables utilities of all sizes to remain in compliance and achieve treatment objectives without the capital expense.”

AV’s new NSF Certified modular product line offers the flexibility of increasing flows or treating multiple contaminates by selecting the specific filter to meet treatment goals. These systems also address long-term waste concerns with responsible and certified media disposal with a convenient self-disposal system.

“Not only does the new system offer convenience and flexibility, but it also puts control of ongoing operations and maintenance back into the hands of the utilities, where it belongs,” said Craw. “It eliminates the need for outside design, install or service, giving utilities independence and freedom from third-party media service providers.”
