The importance of clean water cannot be overstated. Access to clean drinking water is vital for maintaining a healthy, hygienic lifestyle. Filtering wastewater can help stop pathogenic microorganisms like rotaviruses and E. coli from being transferred. This is why effective water quality filters must be utilized.
I.W. Tremont manufactures high quality filtration media specifically for water and wastewater laboratories. Our water filtration systems have been trusted for 40+ years for water treatment plans, standing recreational waters, and more.
If you’re conducting a water quality testing procedure, we have a variety of US-manufactured products that will get the job done right. I.W. Tremont’s Glass MicroFiber Grade - TSS filters are binderless, high efficiency (HEPA type) and designed specifically for testing dissolved and suspended solids.
Suspended solids can be retained on a water filter and are capable of settling out of the water column onto the stream bottom when stream velocities are low. Examples include silt, clay, plankton, organic wastes, and inorganic precipitates.
Our range of binderless glass fiber media is among the widest in the analytical field. Their proprietary grades along with post-production processing make these filters perfect for your water quality testing procedure.
I.W. Tremont’s filtration materials have performed over 40 million water quality test procedures across the globe in the past 12 months alone. We can help you ensure the purity of the water you drink next.
According to a report conducted by The United Nations, about 80% of the world’s wastewater is dumped back into the environment. This results in polluted waters that are contaminated with unsafe substances like chemicals, microorganisms, and sewage. Water pollution is a serious problem, but there are ways that untreated wastewater can be cleaned.
I.W. Tremont’s VSS Grade Glass MicroFiber filters are ideally suited for the determination of Fixed & Volatile Solids ignited at 550C. Volatile solids represent the amount of organic matter present in the solid fraction of wastewater, activated sludge, and industrial wastes.
The more volatile solids present in the wastewater you’re testing, the stronger that wastewater is. Furthermore, organic volatile solids have more of an impact on water treatment plants than inorganic solids.
These binder-free filters can be used for wastewater analysis in recreational waters such as:
Wastewater that is tested and properly treated can be safely returned to the environment. It can also be used for industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, and more. Regardless of its end use, treated wastewater helps to reduce water pollution.
I.W. Tremont’s wastewater treatment and water filtration materials are made 100% in-house. This means that your requests for alternative diameters, materials, or material processing variations can be accommodated. Tell us about your project and we’ll be happy to find a solution that works for you.
