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 […]

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

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.

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” […]

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 […]
