Challenge
Opportunity


A dairy company that generated 1400 m3/day of wastewater used polyaluminum chloride as coagulant and anionic polymer as flocculation adjuvant in its WWTP.

Flox®-QT was tested in the laboratory with the aim of improving the quality of the treated water, allow working in a wider range of pH and decreasing the volume and improving the quality of sludge. The good results obtained led to successful industrial-scale implementation of Flox®-QT and its approval for permanent use in the WWTP.

BENEFITS OF THE application
of Flox®-QT


Reduction of sludge volume in 40%

Elimination of one centrifuge due to the production of more easily dehydrating sludge

Improved health and operational safety of the operators through the use of a product not classified as dangerous on the UN list
