ACTI-Mag for FOGs

With a higher neutralising value per dry kilo when compared with caustic and lime, ACTI-Mag raises the pH of the waste stream and allows bacterial breakdown of organic matter and saponification of fats, oils and greases FOGs.

WHY ARE FOGS AN ISSUE?

Higher concentration of FOG can lead to the formation of fat bergs, scamming, pump blockages, pipe restriction, pipe blockage plus the formation of odour related issues like hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). But these issues can also end up interfering with the sewage treatment processes at wastewater treatment plants.

Key Benefits

Fatbergs removal
Reduce vacuum truck cleaning
Removal of FOGs
Better pH management

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FOGS WHEN USING ACTI-Mag

ACTI-Mag is a concentrated stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide, an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)₂.

ACTI-Mag slowly releases hydroxyl ions which breakdown low-density, large-chain fatty acids into glycerol and various types of soap, both of which are more readily digested by bacteria in wastewater.

Wastewater has large quantities of low-density, long-chain fatty acids. The carboxylate salts that are O-produced further facilitate the breakdown of other fats.

WHY CHOOSE CALIX

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.

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.

FASTER REACTIVITY = COST SAVINGS

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.

HASSLE FREE DELIVERY, LOCAL SERVICE AND SUPPORT YOU CAN COUNT ON, WHEREVER YOU ARE LOCATED.

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.
