Our BioFlox® range of coagulants and flocculants are specifically designed for the treatment of wastewater and sludge in the sewage and biological wastewater treatment applications. This range is available in both powder and liquid form and in a variety of appropriate molecular weights and charge densities. These advanced polymers enable cost and performance optimisation by:
- Increasing the rate and extent of gravitational settling in clarifiers
- Increasing the solids concentration of the waste sludge stream
- Achieving maximum sludge dewatering in either filter presses or centrifuges
The Science Developments’ Difference – Improving performance and lowering chemical treatment costs in dewatering sewage sludge
Our business philosophy of achieving innovation and challenging the conventional is well demonstrated with our developments in sewage treatment.
Recognising the increasing pressure on operating budgets of Councils, Water Authorities and other companies, we have developed a new approach that reduces chemical treatment costs by up to 20% in dewatering sewage sludge. Our approach is very simple, requires no capital investment and does not compromise either centrate / filtrate quality or dry solids content of the sludge cake. This chemistry is applicable for both centrifuges and belt presses.
For information about how this is achieved, please contact us and we will send details and case studies.
Expertise & Technical Support
We bring a significant depth of technical knowledge of both the underlying chemistry and also wastewater treatment processes. This has been gained through our extensive in-house R&D of monomers & unique proprietary polymerisation technologies; and our technical personnel having almost 30 years’ experience in the field working with and solving wastewater treatment problems.
We therefore bring strong technical support and practical in-field assistance, and can provide:
- Expertise to determine the best chemistry for your specific application
- Ongoing support in optimising dosing and performance on-site, and
- Operator training.
ALFA LAVAL AUSTRALIA ALLIANCE
In 2014 we formed a strategic alliance with Alfa Laval Australia, a world leader in the field of decanter centrifuges for waste water treatment. Within Australasia, Alfa Laval decanter centrifuges are widely used in industrial, mining and environmental wastewater treatment facilities. To function efficiently, decanter centrifuges require the use of polymers such as those supplied by Science Developments.
