The appearance of this product is a clear solution with a yellow to amber colour.
Properties and Applications
- Synthetic organic coagulants with molecular weights ranging between 10 000 and 100 000.
- Is used mainly in potable water clarification as either a primary coagulant or coagulant aid to metal salts, such as ferric chloride.
- It performs over a wide range of turbidities and pH levels and is particularly suited to exceptionally high turbidity conditions. As turbidity decreases it will in general revert to a coagulant aid role.
- Effective clarification of low turbidity water is achieved in sludge blanket or sludge contact clarifiers.
- Other advantages include no effect on pH, higher solids sludge, low sludge volumes and the formation of dense, rapid settling flocs.
- Polyamine is not corrosive and handling is relatively simple, it can be stored in most materials except mild steel. LDPE tanks are recommended.
- Consistent and sensitive dosage control is required as polyamine dosages are typically in the order of 1-10 mg/l and a relatively narrow optimum dosage is exhibited. This necessitates adequate laboratory facilities for determination and monitoring.
- Most polyamines can be metered neat through positive displacement diaphragm pumps with a suitable viscosity rating followed by in-line dilution with clean water to a suitable concentration for rapid dispersion. Dilution to a suitable concentration as a stock solution followed by metering can be used but care is required to ensure an accurate solution strength.
