Magnesium Hydroxide High-Purity, High-Stability, High-Solids Slurry for Caustic Soda Substitution
For decades, caustic soda has been known for price and supply volatility. As a result, it is not uncommon for current purchasers of caustic soda solution to investigate “caustic soda replacement”, “caustic soda substitution”, “caustic soda supplementation”, “caustic soda partial substitution”, or to be interested in “caustic soda comparison” with other “alternative sources of alkalinity” or “alternative pH control” measures. Those that research caustic soda substitutes are likely to learn that magnesium hydroxide slurry is a cost effective alternative source of alkalinity and pH control.
Magnesium hydroxide slurry has been available for decades and many dozens of railcars are shipped to customers every month for:
- Industrial wastewater pH and alkalinity control for anaerobic, aerobic, and activated sludge
- Industrial metals precipitation and flocculation
- Municipal wastewater pH and alkalinity control for anaerobic, aerobic, and activated sludge
- Silica Precipitation for the semiconductor industry
- Mining metals beneficiation
- Acid Neutralization
- Kraft Pulp Bleaching
- Mechanical Pulp Bleaching
- Hydrogen Sulfide control
- Other Specialty Markets
Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties’ magnesium hydroxide is a non-hazardous, non-corrosive high-purity synthetic slurry. Our Manistee, Michigan plant pumps magnesium-rich brine obtained from deep within the earth. We combine it with dolomitic lime mined from our vertically-integrated quarry in Woodville, Ohio. Together those ingredients create a magnesium hydroxide slurry with the highest purity, stability, and solids available in the world. FloMag® and CellGuard® slurry products are shipped direct or via our railcar transloads located throughout the country. Whether supplied to customers directly from our plant or through our partner distributors, we are proud to continuously offer the best-value slurry available from our dedicated staff in our ISO-certified locations.
