The treatment needs of industrial wastewaters are as varied
as the many uses of water, including baths, rinses, flushes, and cooling to
boiling. Effective water management initiatives can impact operations
from cost and compliance to quality and customer satisfaction. Proper wastewater treatment, reuse, and recycling are often critical to
profitability and meeting environmental regulations while also protecting
personnel and mitigating overall risks.
Magnesia has been used for the treatment of industrial
wastewater in many different applications because of its ability to neutralize
pH and effectively precipitate metals. Offering up to 27% more alkalinity than
other reagents has made it the most chemically-effective and cost-effective
option for facilities.
