IX Blü: Machine for eliminating arsenic in private household and agricultural water systems, based on award-wining technology from Los Alamos National Laboratory, the University of Texas, and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
IX Blü granular filters have large amounts of surface area and an affinity for arsenic to adhere to its surface. Although these filters are fairly new to the community treatment market, the principals behind them have been used by public water suppliers for many years.
IX Blü media is housed in a centralized treatment area for entire communities. IX Blü can be used to enhance the performance of reverse osmosis systems by preventing a biofilm build-up on subsequent RO membranes and dramatically increase water recovery. The media can be disposed of as non-hazardous waste.
• EPA allowable limits for arsenic in drinking water is 10 parts per billions (10 ppb) or 10 micro gams per liter (ug/L); while most medical professionals have agreed that anything over 5 ppb / 5 ug/l can have long-term hath impacts.
