Find Out How We Can Help Calculate Your Savings

IER provides safe alternatives to wastewater treatment chemicals to Des Moines, Iowa businesses including food and beverage, meat and dairy processing, microelectronic, municipal wastewater, winery and brewery businesses.

AMALGAM is a safer, greener and more cost effective Des Moines wastewater treatment solution.

AMALGAM-60 (60% Mg(OH)2) has a higher neutralizing value per pound than any other alkaline additive.  This translates into a 40% reduction in chemical usage when compared with caustic soda, while being significantly safer for operators to handle and more nutritive for the microorganisms being maintained – making it the most cost-effective option.

Benefits of AMALGAM

Lower Usage Rate

When an alkaline compound dissolves in water, they produce OH (hydroxide) ions, making the solution more alkaline.

AMALGAM-60 (60% Mg(OH)2) provides two hydroxides for alkalinity compared to NaOH Caustic Soda (Sodium Hydroxide).

The required usage rate of AMALGAM-60 is far less than NaOH.

AMALGAM-60 vs Caustic Soda

Safer

AMALGAM is non-hazardous and non-corrosive, making it easier and safer to handle for people in Des Moines. Spills caused by AMALGAM are non-reportable.

Caustic Soda (NaOH) can be strongly irritating and corrosive causing burns and damage to skin tissue which is why AMALGAM is a perfect replacement.

Chemical Burn from Caustic Soda

Environmentally-Friendly

AMALGAM provides an environmentally-friendly wastewater treatment chemical solution. Because magnesium is a macronutrient, the core element of chlorophyll which makes everything green, it is beneficial to the environment.

Magnesium also helps in reducing sludge volume, reducing sludge hauling fees due to its coagulation properties.

Microelectronics Wastewater Treatment Chemicals

IER is a wastewater treatment chemicals Des Moines supplier. Microelectronics and Semiconductor wastewater are difficult to treat because of their strong color, high chemical oxygen demand (COD), high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and heavy metals, resulting in potential contamination of the environment

Removing contaminated metal ions from wastewater is done by raising the pH so it forms insoluble metal hydroxide precipitates. This can be complex and dangerous as some pH levels need to be adjusted quite high in order to form the precipitates.

IER provides a safe alternative to microelectronic wastewater treatment by using AMALGAM to neutralise the water.
