DEFINITION OF SANITIZATION:
Sanitization is not an absolute phenomenon. It is a partial removal of organisms. Depending on the system, a sanitization operation should reduce the organism population by some 90%. In water, sanitization is frequently defined as a 3-logarithm (log) or 1,000-fold reduction in the number of bacteria.
THERE ARE TWO BASIC APPROACHES FOR CONTROLLING BACTERIAL GROWTH IN A POTABLE WATER SYSTEM.
Counterfeiting affects business-to-business activity in many industries; recycled items, unapproved components, stolen goods all play a part. With industrial process filters, how can you guarantee authenticity? This blog explores what to look out for when identifying a counterfeit product. Read on to find out.
Effective water filtration means saving money, improving your eco-credentials and benefiting your health. However, what happens when you don’t maintain your water filters? There are many implications that can occur when water filtration is not maintained to a high standard. Regularly changing water filters is crucial to ensuring safe water.
Water is a universal solvent. It is vital to life from drinking, to manufacturing processes, washing, cleaning, and its essential applications in science - the list is endless. It is easy to take safe and clean water for granted; filtered water ensures we can conduct reliable experiments, consume safe and great tasting food and drink. If this process is disrupted or compromised in any way it can wreak havoc.
This three part blog will explore what water filtration is, its importance, the implications for unkept filters and will take a glimpse into the underworld of counterfeit filters.
What are the most common water contaminants? A basic principle in research is to eliminate as many variables as possible during a study. Water quality is an important variable to consider. Many contaminants are found in water such as particles, organics, dissolved ions, pyrogens, bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms.
