WRT’s SMR (Selective Metals Reduction) Process is a cost effective and environmentally responsible choice for removing chromium from drinking water and the community. This process provides an affordable solution for removal of chromium 6.
The SMR Process removes chromium by passing contaminated water through a fluidized bed of proprietary WRT SMR Media, which facilitates simultaneous reduction, oxidation and precipitation. A final filtration step completes the treatment process. Solids from the filter are settled and thickened for solid waste disposal by WRT.
Onsite pilot testing was conducted in cooperation with the Mission Springs Water District in Desert Hot Springs, Calif. Discussions are underway regarding a full scale installation at their well 29 site.
The treatment process offers operation ease compared to conventional ion-exchange treatment processes that require brine regeneration of the treatment media; and it produces no liquid treatment residuals. The result is lower operating costs.
Water Remediation Technology LLC, based in Arvada, Colo., is a water treatment company that removes radioactive radium, uranium, and other select contaminants from water or wastewater. WRT provides cost-effective, long-term and complete solutions to safely handle and remove treatment residuals in an environmentally sound manner.
