ResinTech, Inc. announced the passing of its Technical Director, Peter S. Meyers, at the age of 68.

A legendary scientist in the world of ion exchange technology, Meyers was born in October of 1953 and spent his early life in southern California. He studied chemistry at the University of California at Santa Cruz and began working shortly afterward for L*A Water Treatment Company in City of Industry, CA. Over the next two decades, Meyers became intimately involved with engineering, process design, field installation, start-up, and troubleshooting industrial water treatment systems around the world.

In 1994, ResinTech founder, Michael Gottlieb, approached Meyers about joining the company as its Technical Director, a position he held for the rest of his life. “Peter brought to us a wealth of practical application experience as well as a deep theoretical understanding of water chemistry; a rare combination we may never see again,” Gottlieb said.

Over nearly 50 years in water treatment, Meyers became one of the industry’s most prolific technical writers and a highly sought-after presenter, educator, and session leader. His expertise covered a wide range of ion exchange topics, from demineralization, condensate polishing, and water softening to industrial process design and operation. Mr. Meyers’ name also appears on five U.S. Patents related to ion exchange technology, most notably “Method of making and using modified anion exchange materials with metal inside the materials,” which is the basis for ResinTech’s arsenic removal resin, ASM-10-HP.
