Scaling occurs when chemistry conditions cause dissolved mineral salts to precipitate and form solid deposits.  Scale is a problem because it narrows pipe widths and therefore compromises treatment system performance and increases the energy used in transporting aqueous flows through pipes, pumps and other conveyance elements. Wastewater commonly consists of dissolved matter of calcium content […]

Anaerobic digestion is used for solids reduction and as a method of energy production in wastewater treatment.  Organics digesting bacteria use oxygen that is chemically bound in organic compounds such as starches, proteins, and fats.

Seventeen nutrients have been identified as essential for plant growth.  Without these nutrients, plants cannot complete their life cycles.  Magnesium (Mg) is considered a “macronutrient” – those of the 17 nutrients required in relatively large quantities.

Caustic Potash (KOH) Replacement

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 […]

If your stomach has acid indigestion, you can take pharmaceutical-grade Milk of Magnesia. If your municipal or industrial processes are troubled by acids, then industrial-grade Milk of Magnesia could be the best fix to your problems. Every day, our many and varied customers purchase Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties’ FloMag® H high solids, stabilized synthetic magnesium […]

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.
