Advanced Lead Corrosion Control and Risk Management

Screenshot 2022-02-25 at 00.39.24.pngCommunities across the world are plagued by lead contamination and corrosion concerns, which often come to light during testing of children’s blood and after the event has occurred. However, per the World Health Organization, “There is no level of exposure to lead that is known to be without harmful effects.” Current lead corrosion management solutions are not effective. They are uninformed, employ a central dosing scheme that is not adequate or responsive to localized risk of lead contamination and rely on orthophosphates that pose a huge environmental impact. Furthermore, there is lack of actionable data from existing monitoring methods because of their inadequate, infrequent or even inaccurate sampling and analysis.

Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS) has developed advanced solutions for lead corrosion risk management and control. AMS’ online lead corrosion monitoring technologies are backed by actionable, high-frequency data, providing a comprehensive risk map that informs public health authorities, water treatment plant operators and consumers. AMS’ intelligent in-situ corrosion inhibitor generation and delivery technology offers a localized treatment solution that displaces orthophosphates and provides a responsive, point-of-care, effective approach to manage the multi-variant challenge of lead corrosion risk.
