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.
