ACTI-Mag
savings calculator

ACTI-Mag is a safe and cost-effective alternative to the use of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and lime for wastewater alkalinity and pH adjustment.

  • Feel you are paying too much for your alkali?
  • Looking at a safer alternative to caustic soda for pH control in your nitrification process?
  • Want a greener alkaline additive for your wastewater treatment?

ACTI-Mag has a higher neutralising value per kilo when compared with caustic whilst being significantly safer to handle than other traditional alkalis, making it a very safe and cost competitive option.

To see how much you could save by switching to ACTI-Mag, enter your current caustic soda usage and costs, and your quoted ACTI-Mag price.
