Contaminants

Chromium

WRT's SMR™ (Selective Metals Reduction) Process for the removal of chromium and other metals, is the most cost effective and environmentally responsible choice you can make for removing chromium from drinking water and the community. This innovative process provides an affordable, operator friendly solution for removal of chromium 6. The SMR™ Process removes chromium by passing contaminated water through a fluidized bed of proprietary WRT SMR™ Media, which facilitates simultaneous reduction, oxidation and precipitation. A final filtration step completes the treatment process. Solids from the filter are settled and thickened for solid waste disposal by WRT. We provide a complete solution, from process equipment to the handling and transportation of treatment residuals.
