Odour control

Unlike other agents, which can be costly, potentially hazardous, and targeted at a single issue, ACTI-Mag offers a safe and cost-effective strategy for managing odour.

Excessive odour in sewage network, causing odour complaints ?

Heavy build-up of Fogs layers in the network causing severe corrosion ?

Excess usage of chemicals like lime and alum, & iron salts leading to high maintenance costs ?

Frequent need for vacuum truck cleaning leading to an increase in maintenance costs ?

Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gas is produced in sewage with a distinctive and unpleasant rotten egg smell causing frequent odour complaints.

Hydrogen sulphide is present due to anaerobic activity, which favours sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) and results in the generation of a poisonous rotten egg gas called H2S. ACTI-Mag effectively locks up H2S to prevent release as a gas that produces odour and facilitates corrosion. ACTI-Mag is safe to handle and cost effective with many knock-on benefits that reduce treatment costs at the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

ACTI-Mag for Odour Control

ACTI-Mag has a higher neutralising value per kilo when compared with caustic while being significantly safer to handle than other traditional alkalis, making it a very safe
and cost competitive option for hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) control in sewers.

ACTI-Mag NEUTRALISES FASTER

Less chemical consumption

Made with high surface area MgO (200m2 /gm), ACTI-Mag provides excellent neutralisation speed and produces less sludge, making it a much more stable product, which stays as a suspension longer compared to other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries.

  • Low viscosity – flows easily in most dosing systems
  • Higher neutralisation potential – better cost and usage efficiency
  • Reduced sludge – easier disposal (less costs)
  • Safe to handle / non hazardous (corrosion free)
  • Buffers at pH 9 if overdosed – better stability

not all magnesium hydroxide are made equal.

Unlike many other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries, Calix’s ACTI-Mag is a concentrated (60%) stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide.
More solids = Lower required dose.

The Calix difference

People, unique technology, partners, and track record

Leading edge technology

Calix core technology makes high surface area materials (with a honeycomb-like structure), giving you a price and a reactivity advantage.

Our materials are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the health/safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.

Faster reactivity = less costs

Manufactured in Australia

Fully integrated supply chain – from mine to customer

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.

Chemical dosing systems

Calix leverages a culture of innovation to provide fully customised services such as design expertise, engineering know-how, detail engineering, installation, piping and commissioning services to provide turnkey systems for chemical dosing of Magnesium Hydroxide Liquid (MHL).

Our engineered and cost-effective solutions are tailored to meet your specific needs and budget. Quick to install – our modular dosing units can be delivered on site by truck and are fast to set up and connect.
