Coagulants Australia

Solids separation and dewatering, water clarification, and sludge thickening are possible with coagulants in wastewater treatment. Coagulants in Australia help businesses retain a reliable and consistent source of clean water to assist their manufacturing processes by combining other specialised chemicals and mechanical filtration methodologies.

Coagulation in wastewater treatment is often used to clean water since olden history, with the Egyptians using almonds to clear river water as early as 2000 BC. There is also an indication that the Romans used alum as a coagulant around 77AD.

Coagulation and flocculation are still crucial aspects of treatment methods today, such as lowering turbidity in water. Coagulants in Australia can also used in wastewater treatment to remove chemical phosphorus and reduce suspended particles.

Coagulation is a relatively simple chemical process that involves bringing non-soluble components together by influencing particle charges and adding iron or aluminium salts to an effluent stream, such as aluminium sulphate or ferric sulphate. Apart from removing various small particles from suspension, the primary benefit of using a coagulant is that it reduces the water turbidity, resulting in clearer water.

The positive charge of Coagulants in Australia neutralise the negatively charged particles from the water. As a result, the suspended particles in the water bind to form larger flocs. These bigger flocs start to set near the water supply’s bottom. The larger the particle size, the faster the floc sits.
Coagulation aids in the removal of a variety of pollutants that end up causing your water to become contaminated or toxic, including:

  • Some dissolved organic materials and organic compounds known as Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) or Natural Organic Matter (NOM)
  • Viruses and bacteria of various types
  • Suspended inorganic precipitates

The entire procedure of coagulation may appear simple, yet it isn’t. If you are an industry or business looking for a clear water source, then BioChem Water can help you.
