On February 9, 2021, The Washington Post reported that hackers took control of a water treatment system in Oldsmar, FL and managed to increase the dosage of sodium hydroxide 100-fold. According to The Washington Post: Excess levels of sodium hydroxide could accelerate corrosion, Liu said, which would force the city to buy new piping at […]
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 […]
This tour of our production facility is accompanied by safety & technical demonstrations comparing FloMag magnesium hydroxide slurry to: brucite slurry, lime slurry, caustic soda. Interviews. Made in USA.
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
Magnesium hydroxide can offer economic and process benefits in pulp bleaching. Cost savings from the reduction or elimination of certain bleach chemicals can be achieved by employing CellGuard®MH magnesium hydroxide powder as an alternative alkali and cellulose protector. Additional benefits such as a reduction in BOD/COD and anionic trash can improve wastewater treatment and papermaking […]
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 […]
