Inorganics coagulants based on iron
Iron chloride (FeCl) is a coagulant produced from chlorine—either virgin chlorine or chlorine from hydrochloric acid—and iron.
We supply both Iron chlorides in the following forms:
- Ferrous chloride (FeCl2)
- Ferric chloride (FeCl3)
Iron chloride acts as an inorganic coagulant. The coagulants are used to remove phosphate – a substance that has a fertilization effect in water, which could cause unwanted algae growth.
Iron chloride’s coagulation is an important process in water treatment to remove turbidity and particles, and to enhance sludge dewatering.
