Avista Technologies will be exhibiting, presenting and hosting a special event at the AWWA/AMTA 2014 Membrane Technology Conference and Exposition. The conference will showcase how membrane technology can enhance water reliability and water quality while also revealing new directions in water treatment technologies.

59 Clifton National Window Cleaning vehicles are equipped with water treatment systems that produce pure water. A water softening resin is used to remove the positive ions and a reverse osmosis unit is used to remove the negative ions. After this process, the water is devoid of any minerals meaning that the glass is left smear free.

Love this gummy bear lab for studying osmosis. And, if your curriculum doesn't include osmosis, it's just a great exploration of the scientific method!
