Water Treatment Chemicals


Flocculants, also known as flocking agents, are chemicals that promote flocculation by causing colloids and other suspended particles in liquids to aggregate, forming a floc. These flocs are larger particles that can be more easily separated from the liquid.

  • Flocculation Process: Flocculation is the process of adding flocculant to water. This further encourages floc formation and increases the floc sizes, making them easier to remove.
  • Particle Aggregation: The clumps of particles formed during flocculation sink to the bottom of the treatment chamber, where they can be removed from the water at a later stage.
  • Water Quality Improvement: Removing visible suspended particles from water simplifies later stages of water treatment, especially disinfection. By reducing water's turbidity, coagulation/flocculation minimizes the amount of chlorine (or similar disinfection chemicals) that must be added to the water, helping to save money and make the water safer.

Flocculants play a crucial role in water treatment, ensuring cleaner and clearer water for various applications.
