The importance of in-situ Legionella testing is becoming increasingly more relevant for all medical  and facilities and nursing homes.  Traditional laboratory testing  can deliver inaccurate results not to mention long delays before the results are known . Rapid Legionella testing can mitigate those risks and  by being able to  get the results within half an hour and hence immediately enable staff to take remedial action. More reasons below why traditional lab culture testing is loosing its relevance. Time's Up on Lab [...]

Many Australians rely on rainwater as their water supply for their daily needs. The general public perception is that rainwater is safe to drink. In most areas of Australia, the risk of illness arising from consumption is relatively low, providing it is visually clear, has little taste or smell and, importantly, the storage and collection of rainwater is via a well maintained tank and roof catchment system. Australian Households using rainwater. Source ABS 2010   This water may be used as if it [...]

citric acid anhydrous

Citric acid is a weak organic acid that is produced as a white crystalline powder. It is a natural food preservative that is also used to add an acidic, or sour taste to foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, it is important as an intermediate in the Krebs (citric acid) cycle and therefore occurs in the metabolism of virtually all living things. Citric acid can also be used as an environmentally benign cleaning agent. It is also commonly used [...]

A large proportion of Australians rely on untreated or minimally treated water supplies,  for their daily water requirements.   Recent events have highlighted the dangers of untreated water supplies, even when the water is not consumed.  Naegleria infects people by entering the body when water containing the amoeba goes up the nose. This may occur when people swim, dive or fall into warm freshwater containing Naegleria.  Also see Australian Story . The dangers lurking in stagnant waters-Source: Wikipedia Infections have occurred following [...]

Buying a new water purifier or reverse osmosis system for your home can be simplified if you get in prepared with the necessary knowledge. Before buying a new unit consider this: 1.Any RO system should comprise of at least three pre-filter stages – one sediment pre-filter rated at 5 microns, and two granular activated carbon filters. The granular activated carbon filters should ideally be catalytic carbon to remove chloramines. 2. The pre-filters are an important part of your Reverse Osmosis Filter, [...]

What are Chloramines ? Most of us are familiar with chlorine, which is the disinfectant of choice in swimming pools  and also our public water supplies. Now, in the case of our drinking water supplies, it is being rapidly replaced by a substance called chloramine, a mix of chlorine and ammonia. The decline in the use of chlorine began with the relatively recent discovery of a group unsavoury and often deemed carcinogenic disinfection by-products called trihalomethanes (THMs) that are formed when [...]

Rotameters for Liquids and Gases. Pacific Water Technology is an Australian  supplier of high quality  rotameters for liquids and gases including specialised applications like ozone compatible rotameters. Rotameters are the most widely used type of variable-area (VA) flowmeter. In these devices, the falling and rising action of a float in a tapered tube provides a measure of flow rate. Rotameters provide economical measurement and visual indication of fluid flow Rotameters are known as gravity-type flowmeters because they are based on the opposition [...]

You probably have heard about the benefits of minerals in alkaline water and the benefits of  alkaline water .  However,  you don't have to look too far to read about  negative publicity relating to  alkaline water . The negative  publicity  claims that your stomach fluids are acidic and you need the acidity to digest the food.  Others argue, that the amount of minerals in water can hardly make an impact  on the overall pH of your body.   The reality is [...]

Do you know what is in your water? An increasing amount of Australians are relying on private water supplies either to supplement their municipal water supplies, or entirely.   Some private water users may also alternate between different water sources like rain water and dam water.   With our more extreme weather we are forced to become more resourceful in using our water supplies irrespective of quality.   For all those not sure what is in the water, it is [...]

Pacific Water Technology is an Australian supplier of a various high performance ion exchange resins including chelating resins used in a multitude of applications.  Ion exchange resins are polymers that are capable of exchanging particular ions within the polymer with ions in a solution that is passed through them. Ion exchangers are insoluble acids or bases which have salts which are also insoluble, and this enables them to exchange either positively charged ions (cation exchangers) or negatively charged ones (anion [...]

Pacific Water Technology has launched a range of alkaline water purifiers and RO water filters into the Australian market.   Also known as alkalisers, these alkaline water filters remove unwanted contaminants from your water and replace with  a healthy balance of minerals . These systems all ensure a healthy balance of minerals are added to the purified water whilst also providing a higher pH and increased buffering capacity.  High pH  alone is not sufficient to deliver healthy alkaline water- [...]

Pacific Water Technology , the Australian Distributor for Longer Pumps, has recently opened a new warehouse and distribution centre in Brisbane.   A large range of peristaltic pumps and parts  will be kept in stock to support the local business. Peristaltic pumps (also known as hose pumps, tube pumps) are a type of positive displacement pump which are widely used in  laboratories, water treatment, chemical processing and food processing industries. It creates a steady flow for dosing and blending [...]

Activated Carbon Filters for pre-treatment in Reverse Osmosis Water Filters   Activated carbon filters are an intrinsic part in any residential or commercial reverse osmosis water filter.   Without activated carbon filters,  RO  membranes will rapidly deteriorate due to the presence of chlorine or chloramines in water supplies treated with secondary disinfection chemicals. To prevent oxidation on thin-film RO membranes, the feed water must be dechlorinated. Most membranes will have some chlorine tolerance before there is an observable decrease in salt rejection. [...]

Waste to pure water ratio explained. Discerning buyers who are in the market for a new reverse osmosis system look at a number of factors to ensure they get value for money.  One of the more common question asked is; what is the waste to pure water ratio on your Reverse Osmosis Units?    The answer I have is be very careful when a water filter company tells you they have a 1:1 ratio and we see this a lot: “NEW [...]

The best water filter  system for your home. There are a vast number of different water filters or purifiers on the market today, and choosing the best water filter system  can be a rather daunting and cumbersome task.  There is some confusion in the water industry about the meanings and differences between water purifiers and water filters. Many industries use the two terms interchangeably to describe the same process, i.e. filtration. The accepted definition of "pure" water for most water [...]

There is a vast range of different sediment filters in the market place, and selecting the right filter for your application can be a real challenge with unforeseen caveats.   To decide what sediment filter would be fit for purpose depends on a number of factors particularly the source of water, flow rate required and the application.   More often than not, it does involve some trial and error and trialling various types of filters and micron sizes and find which [...]

Rainwater Filtration systems for potable water sources.      Securing your water supply. It seems like the weather has become so unpredictable – our endless summers, especially in the subtropics, seem to abruptly change into a mild winter. The other seasons seems to have vanished without a trace, leaving us no opportunity to acclimatise. We certainly seem to be experiencing some extremes, with long periods of droughts more frequently. Just when we think it will never rain again, the heavens open and we [...]
