potable water

CED offers a full range of coagulants and flocculants to ensure consistent Potable Water treatment. Our products are approved for use in Potable Water and drinking water systems by the National Sanitation Foundation (ANSI/NSF Standard 60 certified and listed); the nationally recognized health effects standard for chemicals which are used to treat drinking water. CED utilizes a full spectrum of coagulants and state-of-the-art chemical analysis to ensure that the correct product and application method are employed.

Organic & Inorganic Coagulants

Blended organic and inorganic coagulants are often more effective than either organic or inorganic coagulants alone. When added to the water, they furnish highly charged ions to neutralize the suspended particles. CED’s coagulant blends form short polymer chains which enhance microfloc formation. They are also capable of removing a portion of the organic precursors which may combine with chlorine to form disinfection by-products. They produce large volumes of floc which can entrap bacteria as they settle.

Organic Flocculants

CED’s organic flocculants are linear polymers in emulsion with high a molecular weight that is used in all Potable Water treatment processes of solid and liquid separation, such as:

    • Flotation
    • Decantation
    • Filtration
    • Thickening
    • Centrifuges
    • Belt-presses

The use of our organic flocculants ensures that treated water has a high clarity, high sedimentation rate, high recovery of solids at low dosages. These products are easy to handle and dissolve quickly, giving high performance within strong alkaline pH ranges. Organic flocculants are favored where mechanical resistance is required form a floc in the presence of elevated shearing stress (muds dehydration by centrifuge).
