Coagulants and flocculants for water treatment

We have a complete range of coagulants and flocculants, which are chemical products used in the physicochemical processes of wastewater treatment, to eliminate particles and pollutants suspended in water. Our portfolio of coagulants and flocculants is designed to meet the different stages of the water treatment process and their application may vary depending on the composition of the wastewater being treated.

Our catalog of coagulants and flocculants

We offer a complete catalog of chemical products for coagulation and flocculation that includes the following products:

  • TA-97: Precipitant for heavy metals.
  • TA-100: Anionic liquid polymer indicated for wastewater flocculation.
  • TA-102: Strong anionic liquid polymer indicated for wastewater flocculation.
  • TA-104: Liquid coagulant based on aluminum polychloride, indicated for the elimination of suspended colloids in wastewater.
  • TA-107: Strong cationic liquid polymer indicated for wastewater flocculation.
  • TA-110: Liquid coagulant based on cationic acrylamide copolymer in aqueous emulsion of acid character, indicated for the elimination of suspended colloids in wastewater.

The amount of coagulant or flocculant to be added to the wastewater depends on the concentration of particles and contaminants in the water and the desired water quality. In addition, contact time and agitation are also important for efficient application of coagulants and flocculants.

It is important to note that excessive use of coagulants and flocculants can cause negative effects in the wastewater treatment process, such as sludge formation and contamination of nearby water bodies. Therefore, it is important to follow the recommendations of our team of experts and to pay attention to local regulations to ensure proper and safe application of coagulants and flocculants.

Benefits of our coagulants and flocculants

The products of our TA range guarantee the best results in the physico-chemical treatment of wastewater.

They are specially designed to neutralize, coagulate and flocculate water from any industrial process. For this purpose, they have a high concentration of active product, thus achieving the best results with very low consumption.

Our coagulants and flocculants offer the following advantages:

  • Coagulants and flocculants are highly effective in removing suspended particles and contaminants in water, resulting in higher efficiency in the wastewater treatment process compared to other chemicals.
  • These are the chemical products that offer the greatest safety for wastewater treatment, since their proper use does not generate hazardous toxic waste. In addition, most of these chemicals are biodegradable and do not pose a risk to the environment.
  • They are suitable for treating different types of wastewater, whether of domestic, industrial or municipal origin.
  • Coagulants and flocculants are more economical than other chemicals used in wastewater treatment, since their efficient application allows using a smaller amount of chemicals in the treatment process.
  • A higher quality of treated water is obtained by eliminating suspended contaminants, which translates into better quality water suitable for reuse in different applications.

Coagulation-flocculation in wastewater treatment

The coagulation-flocculation process is a technique used in wastewater treatment to remove suspended particles and contaminants from water. This process is divided into two main stages: coagulation and flocculation.

In the coagulation stage, a chemical coagulant is added to the wastewater. The most commonly used coagulants are aluminum sulfate and ferric chloride. These coagulants react with particles and contaminants in the water, neutralizing their electrical charge and causing them to agglutinate and separate from the water.

In the flocculation stage, a chemical flocculant is added to the coagulated wastewater. The most commonly used flocculants are synthetic polymers and polyelectrolytes. These flocculants adhere to the flocs formed during the coagulation stage, causing them to coalesce and form larger flocs.

Once the larger flocs are formed, they are separated from the water through sedimentation, flotation or filtration processes.

The coagulation-flocculation process is very effective in removing suspended particles and contaminants from water and is used in a wide range of wastewater treatment applications, including municipal plants, industrial plants and drinking water treatment systems. The efficiency of the process depends on a number of factors, including the proper dosage of coagulants and flocculants, agitation speed and settling time.
