Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties is a manufacturer of many unique and specialty grades of magnesium hydroxide and magnesium oxide. Together, those two chemicals Mg(OH)2 and MgO are in a class of materials called “Magnesia”. The products described below are produced by reacting natural magnesium-rich brine with dolomitic lime under controlled conditions. The grades of synthetic […]
Magnesia contributes to many industrial applications. Two dozen industrial applications for magnesia are listed at this link.
High purity, light burned MagChem®40 magnesium oxide is moderately reactive and uniformly burned to provide a higher recovery of valuable metals such as cobalt, nickel and copper from acid leach solutions. MagChem®40 can improve MgO utilization efficiency and increase the precipitate grade of the metal giving MagChem®40 superior performance in hydrometallurgy over naturally mined magnesia […]
Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry – Martin Marietta is North America’s largest producer of synthetic, high purity magnesium hydroxide slurry (Mg(OH)2) for use in industrial and biological wastewater treatment to adjust pH, supplement alkalinity and precipitate heavy metals. Since FloMag® magnesium hydroxide slurry provides long lasting alkalinity and improved pH control, it can effectively replace lime, caustic […]
The Application Center engineers often use “twin tanks” capable of holding in excess of a trailer-load of high solids stabilized magnesium hydroxide slurry – FloMag (R) or CellGuard (R) – to assist customers to evaluate MMMS products at their own sites and in their own processes.
Not all alkalinity agents provide equal treatment. A very important metric in alkalinity technology selection is the amount of alkalinity contributed with each gallon injected into treatment systems. Greater alkalinity contribution offers lower amount of chemical agent required, lower chemical costs, and lower transportation costs. FloMag®H Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry is such a high-contribution treatment agent. […]
Magnesium hydroxide is trusted by many of North America’s major corporations for wastewater neutralization, pH adjustment, and alkalinity supplementation by delivering a compelling envelope of technical, economic, and safety benefits. To deliver the highest quality engineering and technical support, Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties established the Engineering & Applications Center more than 40 years ago to […]
As emission limits tighten, fossil fuel electrical power generation plants are employing wet electrostatic precipitators (WESP) to control pollutants. WESPs generally use this post-combustion emissions control sequence: SCR → DESP → WFGD → WESP
