Mongrel Investments offers an established range of customer-centric solutions and products for the water industry. The portfolio of the business unit for Water Chemicals is used in the key processes of industrial and municipal water treatment. We are a leading supplier of chemicals to purify the raw water used for the production of drinking water, to treat waste water stream and industrial process water, to protect cooling towers, boilers and desalination plants. We offer a wide range of coagulants, polymers, flocculants, and other waste treatment specialties to meet the growing needs of industrial water users including:
- Aluminium Sulphate
Aluminium sulfate, alternatively spelled either Aluminium or sulphate, is a chemical compound with the formula AI2(SO4)3. It is soluble in water and is mainly used as a flocculating agent in the purification of drinking water and waste water treatment plants. It is usually sold in blocks of soft white stone, and generally called alum. There are numerous ways to use alum as a flocculent, including to crush it into a powder before adding it to water, stirring and decanting or stirring the whole stone in the water for a few seconds and waiting for the solids to settle. The benefits of alum are that it is widely available, is proven to reduce turbidity, and is inexpensive.
- Activated Carbon
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated is sometimes substituted with active. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 3,000 m2 (32,000 sq ft), as determined by gas adsorption. An activation level sufficient for useful application may be attained solely from high surface area; however, further chemical treatment often enhances adsorption properties. Activated carbon is used in water purification, air purification, decaffeination, gold purification, metal extraction, medicine, sewage treatment, air filters in gas masks and respirators, filters in compressed air and many other applications.
- Hydrated lime
High calcium hydrated lime Ca(OH)2 is a dry powder produced by combining quicklime with a sufficient amount of water to satisfy the quicklime’s natural affinity for moisture. The process converts CaO to Ca(OH)2. Hydrated lime easily forms as a suspension or slurry and is often pumped to multiple process locations within industrial plants. The resulting solution is strongly alkaline, having a pH of 12.4. Most hydrated limes contain approximately 75% CaO and 25% H2O. Hydrated lime is used in a variety of industrial applications including water treatment, as an anti-stripping agent in asphalt, and in soil stabilization. Some hydrated limes are sold into the food grade market as well.
- Sulphuric Acid
Sulfuric acid (alternative spelling sulphuric acid) is a mineral acid with the molecular formula H2SO4. It is a colorless odorless syrupy liquid. It is a strong dibasic acid; fully miscible in water. Sulphuric acid dissolves in water with liberation of heat. Its corrosiveness can be mainly ascribed to its strong acidic nature. It is also hygroscopic, readily absorbing water vapour from the air. Sulfuric acid has a wide range of applications including in domestic acidic drain cleaners, as an electrolyte in lead-acid batteries and in various cleaning agents. It is also a central substance in the chemical industry. Principal uses include wastewater processing, mineral processing, fertilizer manufacturing, oil refining, and chemical synthesis. It is widely produced with different methods, such as contact process, wet sulfuric acid process, lead chamber process and some other methods.
- Chlorine Dioxide
ClO2 is used principally as a primary disinfectant for surface waters with odor and taste problems. It is an effective biocide at concentrations as low as 0.1 ppm and over a wide pH range. ClO2 penetrates the bacterial cell wall and reacts with vital amino acids in the cytoplasm of the cell to kill the organisms. The by-product of this reaction is chlorite.
Chlorine dioxide disinfects according to the same principle as chlorine, however, as opposed to chlorine, chlorine dioxide has no harmful effects on human health. Disinfectants can be used in various industries. Ozone is used in the pharmaceutical industry, for drinking water preparation, for treatment of process water, for preparation of ultra-pure water and for surface disinfection.
Chlorine dioxide is used primarily for drinking water preparation and disinfection of piping.
Our portfolio of chemicals is vast, and we have an open door policy for our clients to obtain specific details of available products in stock.
