When choosing coagulants for phosphorus removal, it’s common to prioritize the cost of the chemical as a key factor in the decision-making process.
ARTICLE How to remove more phosphorus with less coagulant How can a wastewater treatment plant improve phosphorus removal while reducing the amount of coagulant it’s using? The answer: switch to a coagulant that forms a strong, preferential bond with phosphorus. Here’s why that works. Conventional aluminum- or iron-based coagulants don’t form a strong bond with […]
Bishop Water now has an Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) for our ClariPhos™ Rare Earth Coagulant, which means we can simplify the process to temporarily replace conventional coagulants and demonstrate the impressive phosphorus removal abilities of this product at wastewater plants throughout Ontario.
After switching to ClariPhos™ Rare Earth Coagulant to evaluate its ability to improve phosphorus removal, operators at an Ontario WWTP noticed that UV disinfection also experienced a big boost. It turns out that better settling in the clarifier led to higher UV transmittance in the effluent, and a significant improvement in UV disinfection.
Cheese producer switches to ClariPhos™ coagulant to improve phosphorus removal, eliminate tertiary filtration
Phosphorus removal has never been better for an Ontario cheese producer after switching to ClariPhos™ Rare Earth Coagulant for its onsite membrane bioreactor system.
See how ClariPhos™, rare earth coagulant ,reduces sludge by as much as 50%
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected ClariPhos™ rare earth coagulant for evaluation by its H2Ohio Technology Assessment Program (TAP), a state initiative to address harmful algal blooms (HABs) in Lake Erie.
Treatment plants that are using rare earth coagulant report sludge reductions of up to 50%.
ClariPhos™ Rare Earth Coagulant can dramatically reduce or even eliminate pH swings caused by chemical phosphorus precipitation and help improve operator safety at the same time.
Lower dose rate, reduced sludge volume, better clarifier performance, improved phosphorus removal—these are just a few of the cost-saving benefits that ClariPhos™ rare earth coagulant can bring to a wastewater treatment plant.
