TTHMs, DBPs and TOC
TTHMs, DBPs and TOC … these are acronyms that keep water treatment plant managers up at night.
EarthTec has a solution.
Plant managers are constantly battling disinfection by-products. They have been forced to reduce chlorine, switch to chloramines, add permanganate, install ozone, etc. Still, they are often right on the edge of their limit for DBPs.
EarthTec can help solve these problems.
Here are the real issues
- The source of the problem may be unknown.
- Using oxidizers can create DBPs.
TOC is a tricky number. It is seasonal and often at its highest levels during months with the largest demand. If this is your situation, EarthTec has a solution.
Many of chemicals commonly used to treat TOC are oxidizers that can cause spikes in disinfection by-products (DBPs). EarthTec is not an oxidizer and does not create DBPs. EarthTec is an algaecide and bactericide*. By reducing algae and bacteria EarthTec can also reduce TOC.
Plants that use EarthTec at intake screens can reduce or eliminate other chemicals and oxidizers that create DBPs. The result is an optimized approach, targeting specific TOC issues.
