NSF/ANSI Standard 60 Certified Products

CETCO prides itself in providing top quality products to our customers. One of the ways our commitment to quality is demonstrated is by obtaining NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certification for many of our products. A complete list of CETCO products that carry this certification is below. To view our Official Listing with NSF International - Click Here.

NSF International is The Public Health and Safety Company™, providing public health and safety risk management solutions to companies, governments, and consumers around the world. NSF/ANSI Standard 60: Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals -- Health Effects is the nationally recognized health effects standard for chemicals which are used to treat drinking water.

NSF/ANSI Standard 60: Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals -- Health Effects is an American National Standard, which means that the NSF Standards and the processes used to develop them conform to ANSI's requirements for voluntary consensus standards. The standards are copyrighted, but may be used by any organization or individual for the purpose of product/material evaluation, testing, and certification.

NSF/ANSI Standard 60, first adopted by the NSF Board of Trustees on October 7, 1988, covers corrosion and scale control chemicals; pH adjustment, softening, precipitation, and sequestering chemicals; coagulation and flocculation chemicals; well-drilling products; disinfection and oxidation chemicals; and miscellaneous and specialty chemicals for treatment of drinking water. The standard addresses the health effects implications of treatment chemicals and related impurities. Both the treatment chemical and the related impurities are considered contaminants for evaluation purposes. The two principal questions addressed are:

1. Is the chemical safe at the maximum dose, and

2. Are impurities below the maximum acceptable levels?

Reaction by-products such as the disinfection by-products of chlorine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, or other chemicals are not covered by this scope of the standard.

HERCUL-EZ

HERCUL-EZ is a proprietary additive that is used in conjunction with bentonite based drilling muds. With proper formulation, the system will produce a unique drilling fluid with excellent shear thinning characteristics. At low shear or at rest, the fluid will gel and allow for suspension of large cuttings, yet thins immediately under pumping conditions. At rest, HERCUL-EZ fluid looks and behaves like a semisolid, but when sheared, even slightly, will revert back to a thin, almost water-like consistency.

ACCU-VIS®

ACCU-VIS is a liquid copolymer designed for fast field mixing, viscosity building, and clay/shale stabilization in aqueous drilling fluids. ACCU-VIS is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

ACCU-VIS® & BELLE CRUMBLES

ACCU-VIS & BELLE CRUMBLES blends a granular bentonite with a consistently controlling liquid polymer to form a slurry that provides an economical way to seal and grout boreholes, well casings, and earthen structures. Once set, the slurry forms a complete grout seal with low permeability.

BMR

BMR is a non-phosphate granular product effective in removing excess bentonite or native clay from the water well screen. BMR is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

C/S GRANULAR & CETCO® CRUMBLES

C/S GRANULAR and CETCO CRUMBLES are granular bentonite products composed of polymer-free, dried bentonite in various mesh sizes. CETCO CRUMBLES are coarser in size than C/S GRANULAR. Both are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

CETCO® COATED TABLETS

CETCO COATED TABLETS are coated using an aqueous carrier to apply the coating. These untreated organic tablets are compressed into 1/4” (0.64 cm) and 3/8” (0.95 cm) sizes. CETCO COATED TABLETS are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

CETCO® GRANULAR GROUT
