FloSperse Range of Antiscalants

A range of products designed to disperse scale-forming precipitates in wastewater treatment applications.

Salts that deposit in wastewater treatment tend to be Calcite (calcium carbonate) and Struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) and their build up can lead to shut down or break down in a matter of weeks.

The method for overcoming these process interruptions is either manual scraping or chemical dispersion.

The FloSperse range of products achieves this dispersion by

  • Reducing crystal growth rates
  • Consuming calcium and magnesium salts in the formation of water soluble complex ions

The range is

  • Highly stable
  • Easily dosed
  • Environmentally safe
  • Available in kegs and IBC’s

Centrifugation of some digested sludges may cause struvite scale to be formed. The struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) can build up inside equipment and discharge pipelines. FloSperse products increase the threshold concentration of the magnesium and calcium ions, thus preventing scale formation.
