FLOCCULANTS & COAGULANTS - APPLICATIONS

EFFLUENT TREATMENT

used at various stages like mechanical dewatering, gravity setting, water clarification, dissolved air floatation, improved filtration aid and as coagulant aid.

 


METALS & MINING

Non-ionic and anionic flocculants are used during smelting of ores of zinc, copper, tungsten, etc. and in coal and other washeries for retention of fines.

 


SUGAR

Anionic high molecular weight food grade flocculants are used during juice clarification, thick syrup clarification and melted raw sugar clarification. Certain coagulants are also used for decolorization to produce white sugar.



OIL DRILLING

Anionic polyacrylamide (PHPA) is used as drilling fluid for water shut up and for shale stabilization in primary oil rigs.. For secondary and tertiary oil rigs, polyacrylamide derivatives are used for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).

 


SEWAGE TREATMENT

Municipal waste and sewage need sophisticated treatment before they are released to nature or reused. Cationic flocculants are used for mechanical dewatering, gravity setting, dissolved air floatation, improved filtration aid and thickening.

 


POTABLE WATER

Flocculants and coagulants of potable grade are used for clarification, settling of mud and as a filtration aid to process water used for human consumption.

 


PAPER & PULP

Cationics are used for retention of fines and to improve water drainage, while anionics are widely used as synthetic formation aid to create even sheet layer and to obtain softness.

 


TEXTILES

Anionic flocculants are used to separate sludge from processing water so that the water can be reused. Coagulants are used to decolorize water contaminated with presence of excess dyes.
