Rutpen’s Flocculant Blocks have been specially developed to slowly dissolve directly into the effluent flow in question and flocculate the associated suspended solids.
Typically used either directly in the effluent stream to be treated or suspended in a wire mesh basket under an outfall if the effluent has been concentrated into a pipe-work system. To purchase FLOCCULANT BLOCKS: Visit our Web Shop
Effectively treats various types of effluents, often in remote sites without any mains services available to install normal flocculant dosing systems, including: wheel wash systems, open cast mining operations, quarrying operations, site run-off from stock yards and docks, small industrial facilities, drainage from construction sites, moorland run-off containing high colour & colloidal matter, stone cutting operations.
To set up a treatment system simply place the Flocculant Blocks either directly in the effluent stream to be treated or suspend in a wire mesh basket under an outfall if the effluent has been concentrated into a pipe-work system. This point should be in a situation of maximum turbulence so that the effluent flow rate releases the flocculant from the Flocculant Block and is mixed together to allow good flocculation of the substrate. Following this turbulent point should be either a settlement point of low turbulence, such as a settlement pond or lagoon or further pipe-work to gently transport the flocculated effluent to another area for settlement.
Always trial & test
The usage of Flocculant Blocks is very site and substrate specific and is simply calculated by effectiveness by trial and error. Add the blocks until the required result is achieved then maintain that volume of product as the blocks slowly reduce in size. At 50 & 60% active flocculant, our range of Flocculant Blocks are highly effective and long lasting.
Our range is A9, A10, C11 in 1 carton (8 x 3kg), 2-5 cartons & 6+ cartons.
See our datasheet for technical information. We advise that you trial to test effectiveness as usage is very site and substrate specific.
