Perchlorate Removal

Perchlorate is a relative newcomer to the growing list of contaminants. It is generally a remnant of munitions and explosive manufacturing as well as rocket fuel. Fortunately, there are ion exchange resins that are highly selective and can produce very high throughput capacities for perchlorate. Purolite A530E (NSF listed) is one such resin and is widely used throughout the world by municipalities and residential users as well. Flow rates for municipal systems are generally 5 to 7.5 gpm/cu ft and residential systems are often designed around one cu ft with lead/lag units of equal size.

Capacities ranging from 250,000 to 500,000 gallons per cu ft are typical. Disposal of spent resin is generally considered as hazardous waste.

Systematix can also supply 10 and 20 inch Aqualine™ Cartridges for under-counter systems or R/O polishing applications for the removal of perchlorates.
