SlurrySep provides rapid settling of concrete and stone slurries

SlurrySep Clay Based Separating Agents General Overview
Wastewaters contain a mixture of solids (both suspended and colloidal), dissolved metals and organic compounds. While there are many options available to remove these contaminants, most involve multiple steps and a considerable amount of time for the process.
The traditional approach to pre-treating waste streams for discharge or re-use typically involved:
  • Adjusting pH to break oil emulsions and precipitate dissolved metals;
  • Adding coagulants to aid agglomeration of metals into a small masses;
  • Adding polymers (polyelectrolytes) to help form larger masses (flocs) for removal, as well as clarify effluent.
SlurrySep eliminates these laborious, multi-step processes. All SlurrySep formulas are a non-hazardous blend of sodium bentonite clay, minerals and other proprietary resources. SlurrySep offers generators of various waste streams a safe, simple, and cost-effective means for pre-treatment and disposal. In addition, SlurrySep eliminates the need for handling and storing liquid chemicals used in traditional waste water treatment systems.
SlurrySep process can be described as follows:
  • Acidic components release and cause oily particles to de-emulsify and separate from water.
  • Cationic polymers attract any remaining oil and highly charged anions.
  • A base component helps precipitate metal hydroxides.
  • Wastewater is now in a condition known as flocculation, where cationic molecules and metallic ions are all attracted to the clay and form larger masses.
  • Clay particles begin to stick together, entrapping other components and surrounding them completely, a process known as micro-encapsulation.
  • Encapsulated particles are ready to be de-watered and disposed of properly as a non-hazardous waste.
  • This entire process is completed within minutes and does not require any operator intervention or “jar testing.” SlurrySep combines all components of traditional     pre-treatment into one single step.
SlurrySep Product
  • Non-reactive, non-hazardous (as opposed to liquid caustic and acidic coagulants).
  • Packaged in 50# bags or bulk super sacks for easy storage and movement.
  • Easier containment/clean-up in case of spill.
  • Semi-granular and granular blends minimize exposure to fine dust.
  • Can be easily introduced to a waste stream with an auger type dry feeder.
Decrease Process Time
  • SlurrySep combines multiple functions of traditional treatment scheme almost simultaneously, into one simple step.
  • Base clays used in all SlurrySep blends are cationically charged, allowing faster precipitation and settling of metal hydroxides.
  • Typical treatment time required for full reaction is less than ten minutes.
Versatile Technology
  • Effective treatment on different types of waste streams with a pH of 2-12.
  • Can utilize in batch or in-line treatment schemes and in most cases with existing equipment.
  • Removes /lowers: heavy metals, TSS, oils and other organic /inorganic matter.
  • Several blends to accommodate various waste streams and conditions.
Cost Effective
  • Requires very little operator interface.
  • Only one product to add and maintain.
  • Generate a solid waste which is microencapsulated and considered non-hazardous.
  • SlurrySep is a clay based product, which is easily pressed and dewatered.
Consistent Results
  • Clay based products are more forgiving if overdosing occurs.
  • High affinity for metals, organics, and other contaminants.
  • Proven technology for nearly 30 years.
