HaloSource confirms successful pilot production of lead reduction media

The new formulation invented by HaloSource scientists for application in gravity-fed devices overcomes the challenge of reducing both colloidal lead and dissolved lead salts from water, meeting and exceeding NSF/ANSI 53 standards for lead reduction to below the current acceptable threshold of 10 parts per billion (ppb). 

This breakthrough media represents a major step forward in the application of a cartridge based form for reduction of lead from household drinking water when deployed in a gravity fed application, such as pitchers, bottles and counter top units and has the potential to reduce other heavy metals.

The HaloSource solution is new in terms of its mechanism and cartridge life, which will be more than double the capacity compared to competitive gravity pitchers currently certified to reduce lead to NSF/ANSI 53 standards. This innovation represents the company's  second major technology platform joining HaloPure, a brominated bead media for cartridge-based bacteria and virus disinfection in a wide variety of devices and applications.
