Radium Pilot Studies

WRT has conducted more than 100 pilot studies nationwide on many different water quality parameters. Below is a small list of typical pilot studies that have been conducted by WRT. Please contact us to inquire about other pilot studies that may be applicable to your specific water quality and treatment concerns.

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of radium in water source was as high as 6.0 pCi/L, exceeding MCL standard of 5 pCi/L.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.2 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of radium in water source was as high as 9.4 pCi/L, exceeding MCL standard of 5 pCi/L.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.4 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of radium in water source was as high as 13.7 pCi/L, exceeding MCL standard of 5 pCi/L.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 2.0 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Radium and gross alpha levels in water source were as high as 54.0 pCi/L for radium, and 140.0 pCi/L for gross alpha; both exceeding MCL standards.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.3 pCi/L, and gross alpha levels to an average of 5.0 pCi/L.

 

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of radium in water source was as high as 10.6 pCi/L, exceeding MCL standard of 5 pCi/L.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.9 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Radium and gross alpha levels in water source were as high as 12.8 pCi/L for radium, and 66.9 pCi/L for gross alpha; both exceeding MCL standards.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.6 pCi/L, and gross alpha levels to an average of 0.7 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of radium and gross alpha in water source was as high as 30.4 pCi/L for radium and 91.5 pCi/L for gross alpha, both exceeding MCL standard.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced radium levels to an average of 0.5 pCi/L for radium and 6.9 pCi/L for gross alpha..
