PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT CHEMICALS

Upon request, we select the most suitable wastewater treatment chemical for specific purposes after analysing the relevant wastewater sample, review the existing processes and verify efficiency by laboratory tests. We select the appropriate industrial wastewater treatment technology and verify the efficiency of our proposed process by factory scale tests upon request.y.

WE PRODUCE AND DISTRIBUTE THE FOLLOWING WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT CHEMICALS:

We were the first in Hungary to produce multi-component powder-based wastewater treatment chemicals that make industrial wastewater treatment processes child’s play. The FLOKO chemical family turns multi-phase challenges for conventional chemicals into single-phase solutions. The FLOKO range is primarily recommended for wastewaters with oil-emulsion, paint and heavy metal content. Inorganic additives ensure good settling and excellent sludge dewatering properties.

Coagulant chemicals are used to break the stability of colloidal systems and neutralise the surface charge of particles. The coagulant compounds may be organic or inorganic. As a rule, we use divalent or trivalent metal salts, typically aluminium or iron compounds.

Conventional coagulants (iron and aluminium salts) as such are often inadequate for certain challenges. Chemical combos including other special chemicals, such as emulsion breaking agents potently achieve the desired effect. The use of chemical blends often brings about the simplification of technology and power saving.

The flocs produced during the coagulation process are aggregated in the flocculation phase when the myriads of particulates are clustered into larger ones (flakes development).
Flocculants, also known as polyelectrolytes are water soluble organic polymers. Subject to the chemical properties of the monomer (acrylamide, ethylamine etc.), the solute form may be

  • anion active,
  • cation-active, or
  • non-ionic.

Polyelectrolytes of diverse molecular mass and ionic strength may be produced depending on the number of connected monomers. These properties also determine the areas of use. As a rule, surface waters are treated with anionic or weakly cationic polyelectrolytes, while industrial wastewater requires anionic polyelectrolytes. Cationic polyelectrolytes are usually effective in municipal sewage treatment operations and dewatering sludges with high organic content.

However, flocculants are extremely sensitive to reaction conditions and so-called matrix- or cross-effects. Therefore, it is practical to select the adequate flocculant through laboratory tests.

“Conventional” coagulants may not achieve the desired effect in certain emulsions, such as stable oil emulsions that may require organic cationic emulsion breaking agents.

Foaming during water and wastewater treatment processes may cause serious technical problems. Our anti-foaming agents efficiently reduce the foaming tendency of the water treated, ensuring uninterrupted operation of the plant.

The trace element concentrates are special products containing indispensable trace nutrients (like manganese, molybdenum, copper etc.) for microorganisms in a solute, easily recyclable form. The smooth operation of certain biological wastewater treatment systems require trace elements to be replenished in adequate concentrations.

We have developed a number of special agents for specific production technologies over the years. We shall also find the most efficient and economic solution for you.

In addition to coagulants, flocculants and other special agents, we also supply conventional chemicals like hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid, hydrated lime and lye.
