Airports have seen steadily increasing passenger numbers over the past three decades, putting significant pressure on their assets.
Airports around the world are responding by upgrading runways, retail shops and terminal facilities without a corresponding investment in their sewerage infrastructure. This can lead to accelerated corrosion of sewerage assets and increasing odour issues.
As airports prepare for continued increases in traveller numbers, strategic maintenance of sewer assets will be a key factor in improving passenger experience and boosting the airport’s reputation.
We get rid of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) issues and odour complaints while reducing operating costs by helping operations become more efficient. We solve ageing network issues with cost effective solutions that maximise performance while minimising disruptive maintenance, and protect ageing assets and infrastructure.
Calix ACTI-Mag is made using Calix technology to produce a unique, stable and very high surface area magnesium hydroxide formula that helps reduce the formation of hydrogen sulphide, eliminating odour issues, while improving the performance of wastewater treatment.Find out more
Calix PROTECTA-Mag coating prevents corrosion by raising surface pH. Combined with Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC), PROTECTA-Mag biostatic formula neutralises acids that cause corrosion, resulting in significantly rehabilitated assets that can continue to operate successfully for decades to come.Find out more
Calix is able to offer better service, reliability and performance to its customers because it controls the entire production process from mining of raw materials, processing and production.
Calix owns and operates a mine in South Australia as well as production, testing facilities and manufacturing plants. The ability to hydrate our high surface area MgO in our patented, close-to customer facilities creates multiple benefits for our customers and local communities.
Our AS/NZS ISO 9001 certified quality system and safety, health and environmental management system are vital elements of our engineering and quality services.
Calix’s solutions are manufactured using Calix Technology, which involves grinding minerals to particles around one thousandth of a millimetre in size, and then “flash” heating them in a very short time at up to 1.000 degrees Celsius. As trapped gases in the mineral “bubble out” of the particles, we snap freeze them in a very high energy state, leaving a very porous, honey-comb-like structure.
New materials produced by Calix Technology are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits. This means it has the high reactivity of nano-material, without the potential health and handling issues.
Calix has its own direct delivery, service and support capabilities and also has an established a network of local distributors and partners that can provide the best solution for your specific needs and ensure you receive excellent customer service and support.
Calix’s solutions for Airports help us contribute to many global goals, particularly SDG9 – upgrading infrastructure and retrofiting industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes.
Our Sustainability Series dives deeper into each of these challenges and explains how Calix contributes.Read our Sustainability Series
