Di-Ammoinum Phosphate Extraction

CERT: We are here testing the effects of PicoRM on diammonium phosphate. We have three jars each measuring 50 ml of RO water. Six grams, two cups each of diammonium phosphate and a half teaspoon of PicoRM.

First we're going to mix the 6 ounces per gallon PicoRM ratio, which roughly equates to half a teaspoon in 50 ml water. Then we are going to mix diammonium phosphate, six grams each into our jars. Start to agitate. One of these is going to end up being our control jar and the other one I am going to mix with the 50 ml stuff PicoRM. Now, we're going to add in the PicoRM mix with water, stir it.

All right, so here we are, a week later with the PicoRM and phosphate test. You can see on the right is our control, crystal clear - that's six grams of phosphate in 50 ml water. Here's mixed with RM, you can very well see the separation of the phosphate in the water, you have to stir it a little bit or it would all be still floating at the top.

Come back another week and check it out again. All right, week two of phosphate and PicoRM, you can still see the control on the right, still crystal clear. And on the left, you can see the phosphate almost completely separated from the water; again it was all floating at the top until I disturbed it. But notice how clear the water is around the phosphate. I'd like to somehow measure this through weight and see how much we were actually recovering, but I believe it's around a 100 percent of the product works very well.
