Description:

Testing of the Kinetico Inc. and Alean Chemicals Para-FloTM PF60 Model AA08AS with Actiguard AAFS50 arsenic adsorption media filter system was conducted at the Orchard Hills Mobile Home Park (MHP) Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Carroll Township, Pennsylvania. The source water, with an average total arsenic concentration of 14 ug/L and a pH of 7.6, received no treatment or chemical addition prior to entering the treatment unit. The system removed arsenic from the feed water to less than the detection limit (2 ug/L) for approximately 8,000 bed volumes, to less than 10 ug/L for approximately 25,000 bed volumes, and to less than the predetermined test endpoint (11 ug/L) after approximately 2,350 hours of total equipment operation for a total of approximately 29,000 bed volumes.
