Benefits of AMALGAM-60
AMALGAM-60 successfully adjusted pH of the effluent stream to about 8.3, to maintain the heavy metal concentrations well below the required permit limits.
AMALGAM-60 also provided a more compact solid settling precipitation and a clearer liquid fraction, when compared to caustic soda.
This showed AMALGAM-60 was improving the coagulation
properties of the polymer despite feeding at a reduced dose.
An overdose of AMALGAM-60 never cause a pH spike above 10, which commonly occurs when dosing with caustic soda, requiring the operator to handle and feed another highly hazardous chemical – sulfuric acidic.
AMALGAM-60 proved to be a safe, cost-effective and highly
performing alternative to caustic soda for metal ion precipitation.
