Coagulants for Waste Water treatment play a vital role in the process, allowing for solids removal and dewatering, water clarification, lime softening, and sludge thickening.
With the help of other specialized chemicals and mechanical filtration methods, coagulants help companies maintain a consistent and reliable source of clean water to support their industrial processes.
Rather than having to pay another company for costly water treatment, coagulants enable efficient, on-site water treatment, providing:
In order to use coagulation in your water treatment, you have to apply coagulants to chemically initiate the process. These specialty chemicals should be formulated to meet your specific water quality application based on a particle analysis of your dissolved/suspended solids.
Chemical coagulants used in wastewater treatment fall into two main families: organic and inorganic.
Organic coagulants consist in liquid chemicals which have a high coagulant efficiency mainly focused on its polymer structure and on the strength of the cationic charges.
Inorganic coagulants are both cost-effective and applicable for a broad variety of water and wastewater. Inorganic coagulants are particularly effective on raw water with low turbidity and will often treat this type of water when organic coagulants cannot.
