This is a patented alkalis compound, sold as a powder or a grout with a 10% concentration and which it is generally dosed at a ratio of 1 to 4 millimeters depending in the concentration and type of pollutants present in the wastewater subject to treatment. This chemical fosters the coagulation and collection of suspended and dissolved particles and modifies the disposal of the resulting sludge, because the increase of pH generated by this chemical creates the biological deactivation of such sludge. Additionally, it has a high cementing quality, which translates into savings because of the reduction in the use of coagulating polymers which are very expensive.
Combined with coagulating acids which destabilize the electric charges of the suspended particles, it generates a rapid coagulation of the same, which combined with a minimum portion of coagulating polymers, it precipitates the suspended particles resulting in a clear residual water and a compact filtered sludge.
Additionally, this product provides the filtered sludge a structure which fosters a faster and more efficient drying, and thanks to its low humidity, the filtered sludge now can be handled, transported and disposed more efficiently and at a lower cost.
