Coagulants such as alum, PAC (poly aluminum chloride), ferric chloride, ferrous sulfate etc are used and from the organic range products like poly DADMAC, polyamine and poly DCDA are used. The selection of these flocculants is based on the type of application, system parameters and the type of effluent.
Polyaluminium coagulants are finding increasing use in potable water treatment plants throughout Australia, with polyaluminium chloride (PACl) in particular now having wide application. This paper reviews the properties and advantages of using these chemicals with particular reference to experience at Daylesford,
Accepta PAC is a high performance; superior quality poly-aluminium chloride (PAC) based coagulant, scientifically formulated for use in a wide range of commercial, municipal, manufacturing and industrial process applications including the treatment of wastewater and industrial effluent.
polyhydroxy aluminum chloride (PACl), aluminum sulphate (alum), or ferric sulphate. All these materials need some alkalinity to drive the hydrolysis reactions that allow the coagulants to function. If the water has a low alkalinity, below 50 mgL-1, then the use of some of the more acidic metal salts may be precluded. In these instances there ...

Poly aluminium chloride as an alternative coagulant at 25 ± 5 rpm for 9.5 minutes. At the end of the stirring period, the beakers were removed slowly from the jar tester platform & the contents of the beakers were al-lowed to settle for 20 minutes. For each series, jar tests were repeated & average value of turbidity recorded to
Polyaluminium chloride (PAC) is an important flocculation in water treatment. O’Melia and Dempsey (1982), in a review of work done using a wide variety of PAC coagulants, proposed that some PAC for-mulations may contain aluminum precipitates. The positively changed precipitates of Al(OH) 3 (s) may
Polyaluminum Chloride. Polyaluminum Chloride is well-suited as a primary coagulant in a wide variety of industrial and domestic wastewater treatment plans. Efficient and effective in coagulating particles at a wide range of pH, the chemical leaves no residual color and offers very good turbidity removal.
Chemical Coagulants Used In Water Treatment. Coagulation and flocculation have been used to clarify water since ancient times – as early as 2000BC, when the Egyptians used almonds to clarify river water. There is also evidence to suggest that the Romans were using alum as a coagulant at around 77AD.
Coagulants and Flocculants. Coagulants and flocculant's are formulated to assist in the solids/liquid separation of suspended particles in solution. Such particles are characteristically very small and the suspended stability of such particles (colloidal complex) is due to both their small size and to the electrical charge between particles.
