Benefits

  • A ready to use Liquid Coagulant
  • Eliminates the need for Alum
  • Takes away the need for pH adjustment
  • Removes colour
  • Effectively forms large, fast setting floccs.
  • Reduced sludge volume, easier to dewater than alum sludge
  • Dewatering costs savings

Application

On a plant scale, a concentration of 1% active polymer is recommended for addition to the system.

This is readily obtained by either batch mixing with water in a stirred tank or alternatively by metering the concentrated product directly to the system and diluting in-line. In the latter case, a metering pump of the positive displacement type with adequate corrosion-resistant characteristics is recommended.

For optimum results, FLOCKIT WATER POLISHER should be added to the system at a point of sufficient turbulence to ensure good initial dispersion and adequate mixing. This point will be prior to the clarifiers or filters and, ideally, a quiescent zone should follow the turbulent flow zone at the addition point.

In situations where an adequate addition point does not exist, introducing an in-line mixer or a baffled zone etc. may induce turbulence.

The dosage requirement of FLOCKIT WATER POLISHER will be dependant on the nature of the water to be treated.
