Uranium 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: Uranium, radium and gross alpha levels in water source were as high as 43.7 pCi/L for uranium, 13.6 pCi/L for radium and 85.6 pCi/L for gross alpha; all exceeding MCL standards.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced uranium levels to an average of 2.6 pCi/L, radium levels to an average of 1.3 pCi/L, and gross alpha levels to 5.5 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Uranium, arsenic and gross alpha levels in water source were as high as 99.9 µg/L for uranium, 13.5 µg/L for arsenic and 57.0 pCi/L for gross alpha; all exceeding MCL standards.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced uranium levels to an average of 0.2 µg/L, arsenic levels to an average of 1.2µg/L, and gross alpha levels to 2.6 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Uranium and gross alpha levels in water source were as high as 31.0 µg/L for uranium, and 45.0 pCi/L for gross alpha, both exceeding the MCL standard of 30 µg/L for radium and 15 pCi/L for gross alpha.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced uranium levels to an average of 0.2 µg/L and gross alpha levels to an average of 3.2 pCi/L.

PROBLEM: Uranium levels in water source were as high as 241 pCi/L, exceeding the MCL standard of 20 pCi/L.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced uranium levels to an average of 0.7 pCi/L

PROBLEM: Feed concentration of uranium in water source was as high as 370.0 ppb, exceeding MCL standard of 30 ppb.
RESULTS: Pilot unit reduced uranium levels to an average of 1.2 ppb.
