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.

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 […]

Caustic Potash (KOH) Replacement

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 […]

Wastewater Treatment Plant operators use alkalinity as a tool to control and optimize biological activity for efficient wastewater treatment. Proper alkalinity control contributes to expanded water treatment capacity, better permit compliance, cleaner discharge, better use of capital, better process control, lower risk of process upset, and avoids smelly sulfur bacteria! To find out how much […]
