Gulf Coast Sand LLC has received National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification for its aggregate products for use in water treatment plant applications.
This Standard 61 Program certification encompasses Gulf Coast Sand’s complete line of aggregate products including washed gravel, pea gravel, 8/16 and a complete line of fine sand products.
NSF is responsible for the development of public health standards and, separately, certification programs that help protect the world’s food, water, consumer products and environment. The NSF mark assures consumers, retailers and regulators that certified products have been rigorously tested to comply with all standard requirements.
“Gulf Coast Sand is proud to be a compliant and proactive steward in all of the industries we serve,” said CEO Jeff Bartlam. “We have invested time and resources and have worked closely with NSF to ensure that our process media meets today’s requirements for water treatment plant applications.”
Gulf Coast Sand’s approved process media helps remove solids from water or wastewater and requires little maintenance. Media filtration is suitable for all types of water systems, ranging from industrial applications to commercial use.
