Alkaline sodium silicate used for the treatment of drinking water and industrial water by means of equivalent silicate with acids or acid salts in the water, creating an effective solution of the tubular cycle as an assistant to the effective coagulation of ammonium sulphate.
How it works
soluble silicates perform in wastewater treatment by chelation of metals in solution and by forming a protective film on metal surfaces that isolates the metal from further corrosive attack. As alkaline chemicals, silicates raise the pH of water and thereby provide the further benefit of decreasing the water’s corrosivity.
Sodium silicate can be converted to activated silica by on-site acidification of diluted product. The polymeric activation silica serves as a coagulation agent to remove suspended solids in wastewater treatment streams.
