Generally best suited to biological sludge such as sewage and food wastewater treatment in dams, DAF’s and settling tanks and for sludge dewatering.
DamClear Self Dispersing (SD) Flocculants are a granulated version of the more common powder grade flocculants.
The granulation process incorporates a binder that enables the product to dissolve in water without the need for traditional prewetting devices that are otherwise required to prevent formation of insoluble gels. SD Flocculants are supplied at a controlled particle size of 1-3.5 mm
When dissolved in water DamClear SD Flocculants are used for water clarification of biological sludge such as sewage, food wastewater, wine wastewater and abattoir wastewater treatment in dams.
DamClear reacts with sediment causing solids to settle rapidly leaving a clear treated water. Both anionic and cationic grades are available.
ADVANTAGES OVER POWDER FLOCCULANTS
• DUST FREE
User friendly product, no dust dispersed in plant area resulting in a safer work environment.
• SELF DISPERSING
No specialised wetting heads or venturi required to pre-wet the product. Just meter SD Flocculants directly into a mixing tank via a screw feeder. No lumps & “fish eyes” due to poorly wetted product.
• EASE OF USE
DamClear SD significantly improves materials handling, simplifies floc mixing system design & lowers capital cost & equipment complexity. Provides a very easy to use product for plant personnel.
• FREE FLOWING
No special vibrator required to assist product discharge from storage hoppers.
• LARGE PARTICLE SIZE
- In water clarification applications, direct injection enables “multi-stage” type dosing, for improved performance and cost effectiveness.
• BIOLOGICAL WASTEWATER
Sludge settling aid and for thickening & clarification of food processing wastewater and sewage wastewater.
• INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER
Clarification of trade & industrial wastewater to remove solids and to thicken sludge.
• Low application rates √
• Fast acting √
• Does not affect water pH √
• Low cost √
• Does not affect water salinity √
DAMCLEAR SD IS AVAILABLE IN 3 GRADES: TWO ANIONIC POLYMER GRADES AND ONE CATIONIC POLYMER GRADE. MORE INFO
