With all the radiation contamination of the Pacific
Ocean taking place with the Fukushima Nuclear power
plant it is comforting to know that we do have a way
to remove radiation from our water supply. The
subject of radiation in our water supply was already
a concern for people living near nuclear power
plants, and others who were surprised when their
water was tested positive for radiation levels in
their water which was higher than the level allowed
by the EPA. However, with the Fukushima disaster
getting worse each day, and as the contamination
makes its way across the Pacific the concern will
only grow in the years to come.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Reports now show that radiation from the Fukushima
nuclear power plant has turned up in the drinking
water of several US Cities and that Cesium-137 was
found in milk. Here is an excerpt from an article
from Forbes.com titled
Radiation Detected In Drinking Water In 13 More US
Cities, Cesium-137 In Vermont Milk dated
Radiation from Japan has been detected in drinking water in 13 more American cities, and cesium-137 has been found in American milk—in Montpelier, Vermont—for the first time since the Japan nuclear disaster began, according to data released by the Environmental Protection Agency late Friday......
Radioactive isotopes accumulate in milk after they spread through the atmosphere, fall to earth in rain or dust, and settle on vegetation, where they are ingested by grazing cattle. Iodine-131 is known to accumulate in the thyroid gland, where it can cause cancer and other thyroid diseases. Cesium-137 accumulates in the body’s soft tissues, where it increases risk of cancer, according to EPA.
Airborne contamination continues to cross the western states, the new data shows, and Boise has seen the highest concentrations of radioactive isotopes in rain so far.
A rainwater sample collected in Boise on March 27 contained 390 picocures per liter of iodine-131, plus 41 of cesium-134 and 36 of cesium-137....
As you can see radiation in water is in
fact a real cause for concern and that concern will only grow as the
contamination spreads. Thankfully there is a solution that will allow
consumers to filter out several types of radioactive contaminants and
produce clean and healthy water to drink.
Total Radioisotope Aqua Purifier
(T.R.A.P) is a custom cartridge filter capable of
removing radioactive particles from drinking water
and delivering a safe, great tasting water for your
home or office.
The T.A.R.P filter is proprietary blend of layered medias
in a single cartridge that works synergistically to
remove undesirable ions from water. These medias
are commonly used by the nuclear power industry to
reduce levels of radioactive contaminants from water
whether naturally occurring or from decay products of
man-made nuclear fuels.
The radiation removal cartridge contains pre and post filtration
contact with purified granular activated carbon. The
carbon has a high degree of microporosity which
makes it a good media for the adsorption of
chlorine, iodine-131, and organics.
The cartridge also contains a processed zeolite,
which is a microporous arrangement of silica and
alumina tetrahedral, effective for the removal of
cesium-137, radium-226, strontium-90 and ammonia.
In the final layer, a mixture of styrene polymer
beads that have been functionalized to remove
ionized contaminants are utilized for the removal of
any residual cesium-137, iodine-131 or strontium-90
that may have passed through the initial stages.
The iostopes are retained within the filter
cartridge, keeping the radioactive particles, well
below the maximum contaminant level (MCL) allowed by
the federal EPA.
The filtration capacity is 400 gallons. We recommend
that you strictly monitor the amount of water that
passes through this filter because it could be very
harmful if you try to use this filter beyond the
stated filter life. The filter traps 99% of the
contaminants for up to 400 gallons. It is very
important to change the filter after that threshold
has been met.
recommendation is to always use a second filter in
conjunction with the Anti-Radiation filter as
finisher or polisher filter. This filter should have
high quality carbon to absorb any particles that may
be carried over from the Anti-Radiation filter. The
filter in your water ionizer will also serve as a
third level of filtration ensuring that you will
drink clean and healthy water.
