Water Treatment Chemicals


Coagulants in water treatment are chemicals that are used to remove suspended solids from water. Coagulation treatment neutralizes the negative electrical charge on particles, which destabilizes the forces keeping colloids apart.

  • Process: Coagulation involves adding chemicals to water, causing them to bind together and form 'flocs'.
  • Neutralization: Coagulants neutralize the charge of suspended solids, allowing them to clump together.
  • Types: There are numerous types of organic and inorganic coagulants, each with their own pros and cons.
  • Effectiveness: Removing visible suspended particles from water simplifies later stages of water treatment, especially disinfection.

Coagulants play a crucial role in improving water quality by reducing turbidity and facilitating the removal of small suspended solids.
