Aluminum Sulfate

Aluminium Sulfate, commonly known as ALUM, in bicarbonates it reacts to alkalinities present in water and forms a gelatinous form. This flocullation effects attracts other fine particles and suspended material in raw water,after binding with the floating impurities of water, it settles down at the bottom making the water free from residues and floating materials for crystal clear effect.

Aluminum Sulfate is a coagulant which explains that Flocculation and coagulation treatment chemicals are used in effluent water treatment processes for solids removal, water clarification, lime softening, sludge thickening, and solids dewatering. Coagulants neutralize the negative electrical charge on particles, which destabilizes the forces keeping colloids apart.

It is used for many Industrial waste water treatment applications.because it is so efficient in treating both drinking and waste water due to its high efficiency, effectiveness in clarification, and utility as a sludge dewatering agent. The chemical leaves no residual colour, removes turbidity, and also has a non ferric quality that suits drinking water.

Typical Applications:

  • Industrial and sanitary wastewater treatment
  • Inks, food, metals, and oily wastes
  • Phosphorus removal & color reduction
  • Paper & pulp wastes
  • Sludge dewatering

Typical Properties:

  • Can be diluted in water to 48% by wt.
  • pH at 1% = 3.5 Standard Units
  • pH at 50% = <2.5 Standard Units

Packaging and Handling:
