Hydrogen Sulfide Treatment

Hydrogen sulfide

Hydrogen sulfide is a common nuisance contaminant. Although it is usually not a significant health hazard, hydrogen sulfide can have a temporary laxative effect on humans and young livestock. They also may clog plumbing and stain clothing. Hydrogen sulfide produces an offensive “rotten egg” odor and taste in the water, especially when the water is heated.

Treatment options depend on the form and quantities in which hydrogen sulfide occur in untreated water. Therefore, it is critical that a comprehensive water analysis be conducted.

AdEdge provides treatment for hydrogen sulfide using AD26 oxidation/filtration media in our systems. By using our water filtration systems we are able to reduce the amount of hydrogen sulfide in a water system.

We also offer a line of packaged, pre-engineered APU systems, which are the ideal solution for public water systems, schools, subdivisions and more. We also have a line of modular treatment systems that arrive unassembled, ready for hook-up when they are installed on site. These solutions can incorporate the oxidation/filtration and/or coagulation/filtration treatment processes with pre-and-post treatment for a complete integrated system.
