The field trial program deploys the system in a real world environment to ensure the system will reliably operate to its design specifications. These two trials were done with ocean water to test the de-salination capability, one of the most rigorous tasks of the treatment train.
Laboratory tests show that the purified seawater meets or exceeds the EPA Primary and Secondary Drinking Water standards, PureSafe said. “99 percent removal of sea salts and the elimination of Ecoli and Coliform bacteria from the source water are just two of the many successes we achieved during these trials,” COO Rod Stoehr said.
“The results from the field trials in combination with the Gold Seal certification testing done with the WQA validates our treatment train on a variety of contaminants and shows that our system is capable of purifying water from any source, on a continuous basis, in remote locations,” CEO Leslie Kessler said.
The trials were completed over two separate weeks and involved 24-hour operation under the system’s own power source.
