- Arsenic is a poisonous element found in nature as As-3 or As-5 ion
- Many of the bore-wells/hand pump wells etc. have been found to contain objectionable levels of Arsenic.
- Arsenic poisoning affects skin and nerves. The skin may become dry and hard, peripheral nerves may cause muscle weakness. Continuous dose of arsenic through drinking water may lead to cancer, liver disorders and finally kidney failure causing death.
- So far, no viable technology has been available to reduce the Arsenic content to acceptable levels of 0.02 ppm or lower
ARSENIC ADSORBER offered by NICHEM has SURFACE MODIFIED ADSORPTION TECHNOLOGY to adsorb Arsenic, both As-3 & As-5 ions from drinking water.
