Before now, arsenic treatment systems for farms, ranches, and small communities would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. IX Water Blü is a simple machine that adds on to your existing water treatment system and is 100% effective at eliminating arsenic and other metalloids – for less than 8.6 cents per 1,000 gallons.
The challenge with the removal of arsenic, lead, and other contaminants from drinking water is twofold: cost and ease of use.
IX Water Blü solves both of these issues by providing an inexpensive, robust, and easy to use cartridge-based centralized system that treats enough water for a small community, ranch, dairy, or farm. Created to be part of a complete community treatment train, IX Water Blü consists of a series of standardized scalable modules that provide treatment specific to customer needs without the costs and uncertainty of investing in a full-size water treatment plant.
IX Blu modules are charged with the media appropriate to the desired function and outcome, and linked together with standard fittings.
IX Water Blü Module to eliminate arsenic at 60 gpm. These models can be ganged together or reduced to create greater or lesser throughput. IX Water Blü is based on a simple-to-replace cartridge system. Cartridges of IxMZ media only need replacement three to four times a year and are supplied as part of a IX Water maintenance agreement.
We don't want o be alarmists, but long-term exposure to arsenic leads to skin and other cancers, cognitive development problems, diabetes, stroke, and a host of other illnesses.
The chart below lists the impacts of having arsenic above 10 parts per billion (ppb) in water for drinking, bathing, and general household use. The standard of 10 ppb arsenic is generally used world-wide, but new evidence shows that as little as 5 ppb arsenic can cause these same ill effects. IX Water Blü reduces arsenic to below 5 ppb.
|Most Affected Body Parts||Lungs, skin, liver, kidneys|
|Acute Symptoms||Vomiting, headaches, confusion, bloody urine, cramping, hair loss, convulsions|
|Long Term Effects||Cancer, skin thickening & pigmentation; damage to nervous system, blood vessels, brain, death|
|WHO Guideline Values||0.01 mg/l (10 µg/l; approximatley 10 ppb)|
|Contamination Source||Mining, metal refining, timber treatment. Some excessive concentrations naturally-occurring|
Hundreds of millions of people all over the world are affected by arsenic and other metalloids in their drinking water.
Nearly 20 million people are at risk of arsenic exposure in Europe and in China, and another 13 million U.S.A. residents drink arsenic contaminated water every day. Lead is even more prevalent, with over 120 million Europeans and millions of U.S.A. and Chinese citizens at risk of exposure to levels exceeding regulations. The problem of contaminated water is ever present, and IX Water Blü is part of the solution.
