Fluoride Removal

Throughout many parts of the world high concentrations of fluoride that occur naturally in groundwater, can cause significant health risks, including fluorosis, a serious bone disease. One of the major challenges faced by people in these affected areas is to provide clean drinking water.

Fluoride removal from drinking water is also done with a reverse osmosis system.  Fluoride is one of the most basic ingredients of toothpaste. It is also used as a pesticide because it is toxic among insects. There is a special kind of fluoride utilized in processing nuclear reactor fuels and atomic bombs. Some compounds are used in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery as a replacement for soft tissues in the body.

Fluoride can be found naturally in various water sources. Example, rivers and lakes have approximately 0.5 milligrams of fluoride per liter or water while ground water near volcanoes or mountains have 50 milligrams per liter.
