AQUAFLOCK 12 P is a powdery flocculent which is used for the coagulation of waste water with a very high solids content. It is especially suitable for the treatment of emulsion-containing waste water produced during developing and decoating. The chemical splitting process is based on three different phases:
Coagulation: Dissolved emulsion particles are being percipitated.
Flocculation: The formation of flocks for the adsorption of dirt allow filtration of the waste water.
Sedimentation: The flocks are heavier than water and sink to the bottom, whereby a quick preliminary sedimentation is reached (before the filtration).
AQUAFLOCK 12 P is used in discontinuous waste water treatment systems. Only a few chemicals are used and a minimum of dirt is produced, hence reducing costs for waste recycling and water water treatment.
